Combining the option of open-air driving with a cargo capacity you just won't find in any common car, this 2004 Chevrolet SSR is one seriously versatile vehicle - the equivalent of an automotive Swiss army knife. Looking to take a drive with only the blue sky above you, or help a friend move? The SSR abides. It's also stylish and fun to drive and, with just a little over 26,000 miles logged, has years and years of service left to explore all the functionality you'll have at your disposal.
Decked out in a vibrant red hue that's a great match for its distinctive styling, this SSR features aggressively curved front fenders and prominent running boards along its sides. It's actually a respectful homage to a number of the design cues found on the Chevrolet Advance Series trucks that served as workhorses while America entered its post War construction boom in the late '40s to mid '50s. Despite 13 years having elapsed since it first hit the road, its paint remains in very good condition, with a nice, wet-looking shine and strong, even clearcoat. Having likely been stored safely in a garage when not in use, there isn't much to indicate that UV exposure has had a chance to exact its toll - the vitality of the red paint is matched by still-clear lenses on the headlights and taillights and you'll notice that the signature Chevy bowtie on the tail retains the same deep gold shade it had when the SSR was new. You can see evidence of its clean history in its panel alignment -no protrusions or unevenness to be found anywhere.
The SSR may exhibit some obviously retro touches, but you'll find the interior is decidedly modern in design. It's decked out in black leather and equipped with the options you're likely looking for, including cruise control, power locks, power windows, power heated seats, a tilt column and air conditioning that's blowing as cold and strong as you could possibly want. Everything is looking good inside, too - the high-backed buckets with their integrated headrests are still very comfortable, and have firm bolsters that show no serious wear or pronounced creases. The dash area also remains in nice shape, with a level dash pad up top, gauges with very clear lenses in the cluster and brushed aluminum trim that's yet to suffer from any peeling or serious scuffs. An AM/FM/CD changer sits front and center in the dash, so your audio needs are covered. That truck bed in back has a surprising amount of room - there's quite a bit of space between the SSR's wheelhouses to go along with its considerable bed length.
Underneath the hood sits a fuel-injected 5.3 liter Vortec engine that puts out a full 300 horsepower. It starts right up, runs great, and is paired with a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission to make for a versatile drivetrain that provides both strong off the line acceleration and gas-saving, low RPMs on the freeway. When you combine its relatively low profile and fully independent suspension, you wind up with a ride that, in addition to all its versatility, is also an admirably nimble performer. The SSR is also well-equipped for safety, with driver and passenger airbags, as well as anti-lock power disc brakes at all four corners. This very effective blending of car and truck sensibilities sits on Chevy aluminum rims - 19” in front and 20” in back - outfitted with Goodyear Eagle radials.
