They need to have the 1SS available with some of the features from the 2SS as options. Looks like there could be a 3-4k difference between the two.

On the ordering guide it shows Tire pressure Monitor and Inflater Kit as standard on all trim levels. I thought LS and LT got a spare and SS got the inflater kit. Someone care to answer without guessing? Facts only please.
The spare tire option is shown as an availible option for the LS and LT, while it is unavailble for the SS.

Which is the drawback of streamlined packaging. On the other hand, such packaging of features helps increase production, engineering, and assembly quality, while decreasing cost.

I remember when my Grandfather bought his 1985 Eldorado, and he got it fully loaded (there were still many options you could omit on a Cadillac, but he got them all)....

Every option was individually listed and priced. From the electronic instruments to the power passenger seat to the cassette radio. Ther were about 15 different items individually listed on the options list of the sticker. Everything was an individual option, which meant GM could conceivably build an Eldorado in any of 430 million different combinations, and they only built about 20,000 that year.

You might then have to stop the line for something uncommon, design parts more complicated than they need to or should be, when it comes down to it, to offer lots of options and combinations is really crazy.

Well the 1SS does have the BA audio availble, but it does seem odd the 1SS doesn't show the Convenience and Connectivity option (SRJ) that the 1LT has.

In the other thread about striping they said they were going to have 5 different dual striping color options and a few hockey stripe color options. I am guessing they would offer black stripes since majority of stripes you see today are black or white.

...and why are they not offering leather on the 1SS??? I will most likely be getting that one but I hate cloth interior it is cheapy looking lol... I want LEATHER

Same with the 1 LT -2LT it sure looks like a 3-4 K difference if not more 1500$ for leather 500$ for Boston audio+all the other goodies OUCH

What is the difference between SS1 and SS2 equipment wise? Is that L99 and LS3 or something?

The chart in the first post show's most of the differences. The LS3 is simply the V8 engine and comes with a manual transmission while the L99 is a modified version with AFM (works as a 4 cylinder under low loads) that comes with the automatic transmission.

I still am not able to differentiate the 2. If SS2 and SS1 are the same drive train then why have the 2 different ones? I'm still not getting it.

Seems like SS1 and 2 are the same thing except the appearance. Seems fine to me except the leather part. I guess I'm getting an SS2.

SS1 and SS2 are simply trim levels like you'll find for any car.

They are the same car. 2SS just has more options included.

Okay, drivetrains:

L99 is the LS3 with AFM (Active Fuel Management, which is the thing that turns off half your cylinders when the power isn't needed), and this engine is what you get if you order an automatic SS..... whether you get the SS1 or SS1, if you get the automatic in either, you get the L99

LS3 is the, uh, well, LS3 - which is what you get if you order a manual SS1 or SS2, you get the LS3 WITHOUT AFM.

Okay, trims:

SS1 - the base SS (cloth, no interior accent lights, no BA sound system, no heated leather seats)

SS2 - the loaded SS (leather, interior accent lights, BA sound system, heated leather seats)

So, in review ---- say it with me class:

SS1 with automatic, you get the L99
SS1 with manual, you get the LS3

SS2 with automatic, you get the L99
SS2 with manual, you get the LS3

:upset::upset:

I can only get the
4pack gauges
interior accent lights
Stripes
Inferno Orange interior

Unless I get leather. :upset::upset: I DO NOT want leather. Leather cracks and is damaged easily or has Leather gotten better.

Ok, I have gotten that out of my system. Maybe this will change. Or, can I do a custom order?

I totally agree.......I want an SS w/leather, ambient lighting, and the BA system, that is all..... and now this thing is telling me the ONLY way I can do that is upgrade to a 2SS and pay another 3K (estimate) for a bunch of crap I don't need???? I dont understand why I can't get just the leather package added to the 1SS. I totally understand the need to bundle options to keep costs down, I just think GM should do better than a just two packages per trim level, especially on the SS.
