I was told by SSR plant contact that the Black SSR in Grand Rapids is a "COMMERCE" vehicle. Cannot be released to public yet. Not sure what "commerce" means in the auto sales biz., but this dealer had to pull stings to get it in their showroom. My contact says trucks will be shipping by the end of this week via leaseway. I am driving by plant today and will take more photos, hopefully of SSR's on haulers!!
:confused According to the SSR Owner's manual I downloaded thanks to someone else's earlier post, the rear bed cover is not manual, and even has instructions for opening it with the key fob. Am I mistaken here or did they change things since the owner's manual was printed?
The rear deck lid has a release button on the key fob or in the glove box (emergency release behind the driver rear tire). This only releases the latch and allows the cover to pop about one inch. You must lift the cover by hand. I have opened the rear hatch on #006 at a recent fair visit.
I saw the concept vehicle several years ago and got to see the hood open hydraulically with a push of a button. The roof, at that time, was a one piece unit that opened by rolling down into the area behind the seat. It was more curved than the current roof.
The concept vehicle also had a better roar to it when it was fired up. No doubt the 6.0 Engine had something to do with that.
