    SSR vs prowler: which one is lamer?

    if you ask me both of these cars are just put out by the companies cuz they look different and they will stick out from the pack and they will sell on that feature alone. so for the most part nice things like performance, comfort, functionality ect are ignored. their both ugly (in my opinion at least..) underpowered, useless cars for people to buy who crave attention but are completely out of touch with whats cool. so heres my question to you, you have a rocket launcher but only one rocket...which car is gettin blowed up real good?

    SSR is worse, it's based on a truck! The Prowler at least has some pretence of being a sports car.

    Theyre both image cars IMO, so the Prowlers gotta go. Who makes a retro hot rod with a V6???

    The Prowler is much more lame. It has a wimpy 6-cyl engine whereas the SSR has a 400 hp V-8 with a 6-speed manual transmission.

    haha thank you for the warm welcome. ill try and post some pics up for you guys


    anyways since when did the chevy SSR get a good motor (is it an LS1? the new LS2?)? i havent been following them too closely but i could have sworn they had some lame motor in em. maybe it was just the early ones or the prototype ones? hmm sorry about that i guess that makes them a little more respectable but i still think their butt ugly and useless. in fact i dont know of one person that likes them.

    the prowler doesnt fair much better tho. why did they put a v6 in it? why why why? a great example of a car that makes a cool concept car but never should have been made.

    i dont know i guess if i had to pick one thats lamer i would have to pick the prowler simply cuz at least the SSR has a nice engine

    They both suck, and that's putting it nicely. Which one do I hate more? Well.......for looks, the SSR, for how it tried to be something and failed? At least the SSR is a real pickup/car ( ). The Prowler is a hotrod on the outside, peice of crap 2-seat sportscar weakling on the inside.

    Yeah, starting in 05 the SSR got the LS2 rated at 390hp and has an optional Tremec 6-spd. Best of all is that they didn't raise the price too much. We've got a red 04 on the lot right now with the small motor(5.3 rated at 300hp) that they've marked down to $33,742 just to get it off the lot. To answer the question, I voted Prowler simply b/c as other's have stated it's got the V-6
