2003 Chevrolet SSR

Why This Vehicle is Special

Back in the '40s and '50s Chevrolet built what was then called Classic Advance Design trucks. Later, like the 2003 Chevrolet SSR we have here at Skyway Classics, Chevrolet built a new concept truck with a retro-style design that has V8 power, sports car handling, and a unique look that has become a classic in its own right.

Our 2003 SSR has the new version of Chevy's 5.3-liter small-block V8. This all-aluminum pushrod, GM's first all alloy truck V-8, pumps out 300 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels, by way of a 4-speed automatic transmission.

It all rides on a shortened, reinforced version of the Trailblazer EXT's hydroformed steel perimeter frame, which is supported by a firm double A-arm suspension up front and a 5-link rear with a solid axle.

This chassis and suspension give the SSR cornering capabilities way beyond those of a typical pickup, turn in is quick, and front plow mild, body roll is minimal, and feedback from the suspension and tires first rate.

Stopping the SSR are 4-wheel disc brakes with standard ABS, which brought it down from 60 in a good average distance of 132 feet.

It all looks factory stock in a clean and detailed engine compartment with all the correct factory components like air conditioning, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and factory alloy wheels and grippy black wall performance radial tires.


The SSR's exterior is matched by a slick cockpit that's both custom stylish and Chevy efficient. Brushed red body color trim provide a nice contrast to the dark dash and doors, while twin well-padded leather clad power buckets provide good long distance ride comfort.

The main gauge cluster is super with auxiliary gauges are tucked low on the dash. Controls for the AM/FM/CD audio system are clear and easy to use, as are the simple climate controls.

It has sculpted bucket seats, a color-matched center console, power windows, power locks, power seats, power mirrors, cruise control, key-less entry, ice-cold air conditioning, and stereo radio system.


Our SSR retro machine has a legendary curvy style with modern streamlining covered with slick factory red paint that has the original deep luster.

Chevrolet trucks in the 1950s had a lot of chrome and stainless and they carried over that retro theme as well machine as there is plenty of bright work on the grille, door handles, and the running boards with shiny chrome factory mag wheels alloys for an extra aggressive stance.

Super fat front fenders bulge out from a plunging, wedge-shaped hood. While in the rear, the sporty cargo box is flanked by even fatter fenders.

But the slickest exterior feature, and the core of the SSR's appeal, is the power folding hardtop. Just press the switch on the center console, and the two roof sections retract into a compact vertical storage bay. And this transforms the SSR from a funky pickup into an open air custom cruiser.


Our 2003 Chevrolet SSR that we have here at Skyway Classic has a V8 engine is a classic already today, and certain to be in the future.
