2000 Chevrolet SSR Concept

For decades the Chevrolet bowtie has labeled spirited, functional cars and trucks. The SSR (super sport roadster) captures Chevy’s rich heritage in a new kind of crossover vehicle with an open air sports car feel and unparalleled storage and flexibility.

SSR dons a power retractable hardtop, revealing an interior offering three-passenger capability. This is achieved through an innovative execution of the bench seat and integration of the shifter in the steering wheel, rather than the traditional floor position.

In a fresh interpretation of renowned Chevy styling cues, the SSR incorporates a unique full-width grille bar, wide stance and distinct wheel oriented forms. It has decidedly contemporary architecture – the cab, fenders and bed are so well integrated that they appear to be one. To create a harmonious design, the exterior color wraps into the interior, and the doors and instrument panel have a clean, sculptural flow.

The roadster is more than striking in appearance. This high performance, functional crossover vehicle boasts a longitudinal V8, rear-wheel drive powertrain. The pickup bed in the back provides exceptional utility.
