There has always been a mystique surrounding Chevy's 'SS' (Super Sport) heritage. The SS emblem on the side of a Chevy gave notice to the world that the vehicle had the right stuff. The Silverado SS is based on the 1500 extended cab short bed.
A standard full-time, all-wheel-drive (AWD), viscous-coupled transfer case uses the traction of four driving wheels to provide exceptional on-road, wet or dry pavement handling. It requires no driver intervention, and automatically and continuously transfers torque from slipping wheels to those with a firmer grip in a smooth, almost imperceptible manner. Its continuous 38-percent / 62-percent front-to-rear torque split provides optimum handling and control, further enhanced by a standard full locking rear differential.
The custom interior is Dark Pewter and fully equipped with uplevel LT trim. Its full feature leather bucket seats have special 'SS' embroidered headrests and an 'SS' emblem on the redesigned instrument panel. The instrument panel cluster has distinctive white backlighting, with orange pointers. SS customers have a choice of an in-dash six-disc CD changer or a combination single-disc CD / cassette player with their next-generation AM/FM stereos. A premium six-speaker Bose audio system and GM's next-generation OnStar system are standard, along with a center console, eight-button steering wheel controls, a dual-zone automatic climate control system and many other new features.
