The problem with the SSR is that from the get-go it was too underpowered and too costly. Although the execution made it look cool, it's just for the price, people wanted performance. Although GM was awfully late on bringing a convertible truck to market, Dodge had already did it way back in the day. I wish Dodge would have did another convertible on the 97-03 models.....

They offered one on the Dakota in the late 80's. Early 90's.

As for GM, they already had done a convertible Blazer in the 70's I do believe....hardtop and softtop.

Ive seen one of those when I was younger but had always thought that was done @ the start of the MINItruck trends.....Custom.

I don't even consider the SSR a truck. More like a heavy *** car to me.
