Of course I see the SSR on this list. First section the author got some incorrect SSR details.
Chevy SS story
Awesome Chevrolet SS Models That Are Now Very Affordable
Jun 8, 2018 /by Jared Rosenholtz IN Smart Buy
With the SS gone, we remember Chevy's performance cars
Now that the SS sedan is dead and buried, the Camaro is the only SS model that Chevrolet currently sells. Short for Super Sport, the SS badge debuted in 1961 on the Chevy Impala, and once acted as a sport division for the brand akin to Ford's ST line. GM's history is littered with amazing SS models, but we wanted to focus on seven more recent models, all of which are now quite affordable to buy on the used market. The list spans many price points, and all offer fantastic used value for performance-minded enthusiasts on a budget.
The Chevy SS is the most recently departed car on this list, but enough time has past to make it a used bargain. When it was still being sold, we objected to the use of SS as the model name rather than a trim, thinking GM could have come up with something more interesting. Still, the name doesn't detract from it greatness. All cars came powered by a 6.2-liter V8 producing 415 horsepower going out to the rear wheels. The later manual transmission cars are more desirable and more expensive, but 2014 and 2015 automatic models can be found starting in the $25,000 to $30,000 range with well under 100,000 miles on the clock.
General Motors went a bit mad in the mid 2000s, something that was never more apparent than with the Chevy SSR. The SRR was GM's attempt to build a retro pickup truck that doubled up as a convertible sports car. Suffice to say, the idea didn't work out well and GM only sold around 24,000 units from 2003 to 2006. The base 5.3-liter V8 was simply too slow with a 0-60 mph time of around seven seconds. Luckily, GM decided to ditch the slow V8 and four-speed automatic and offer up a 6.0-liter LS2 V8 with an optional manual. This SSR was able to hit 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds, and is now somewhat of a collector's item. The styling isn't for everyone, but even a slower automatic SSR can command over $20,000 today.
