I know it has a bigger engine with close to 400 horsepower, but why on earth would anyone pony up $45,000 for a Chevy SSR? Now I guess if you like the looks at least it has more muscle. But for that cash there's a lot of other options available to you. Even this Automobile Magazine review mentions the Chrysler Crossfire and Audi TT are faster and handle better. And unless I'm brain dead both are less money too. Actually in convertible trim for $45,000 you can get the SRT-6 version of the Crossfire and the V6 Audi TT. Let alone just a plane old fashioned C6 Corvette. But the SSR has a cargo bed. Brilliant.
