Differences between 2LT and 1SS besides engine?

Sorry, I'm pretty new around here. I'm just trying to debate between a 2LT and 1SS, and which is the better bang for the buck.

Is there any difference between the 2, besides the V6 and V8 engines and the cloth/leather interiors?

Boston Acoustics is available on the 1SS as is remote start . And the leather on the 2LT is gonna have SS embroidery? I believe the 4 pack gauges are gonna be an aftermarket option as well. The rest of is basically the C and C package.

Sorry I copied and pasted from the 1ss vs 2ss differences hence the SS embroidery. But yea, BA is extra. Remote start is NOT available on the 1ss as it's part of the C&C package which is not available on the 2ss. 4 pack gauges is included in the 2LT but not the 1SS and it's not been 100% confirmed if they'll be available from GMPP or not (it's not in the catalog). Of course they could probably be ordered as a replacement part and likely installed with no issues. But it might not be as easy as a simple plug-in. So to summarize, corrected list....

i'm looking at the ordering workbook & don't see anywhere that says you can get remote start on a 1SS. the LT will not have SS embroidery... that's for SS models. the 4-pack will be available through the dealer.

the other differences are:

2LT
-the C&C components
-single-piston brakes
-FE2 suspension (more street friendly)
-160mpg speedometer
-all season tires
-rear spoiler only available with RS package
-transmissions: 6L50 (auto), AISIN AY6 (manual)

1SS
-four-piston brakes
-FE3 suspension (stiffer, lower - more tuned for performance driving)
-180mph speedometer w/ SS detailing
-different front fascia & rear diffuser
-performance summer tires
-rear spoiler standard
-transmissions: 6L80 (auto), TR6060 (manual)
-3.45 rear end with manual transmission

I must have dreamt up the remote start for the 1SS. I could have sworn I seen that in there.

Only if the LT is an auto. If it's a manual -- it'll have the SS's rear-end.

Really? That's news to me... but I won't argue...I just knew that the V8 I plan on buying has a beefier rear end than the V6 does so that it should be able to take the upgrades I'll do to it.

i dont foresee the gas mileage difference that significant either. its one mpg city and 3 highway so what an average of 1.5 mpg difference for 126 more hp and 100+ more lb feet of torque!!??
