Stabilitrak, a useful handling assist program integrated with traction control, is standard equipment on this LT. Unlike virtually any other car on the market, if you select the optional 6-speed automatic gearchange your LT will weigh less than a 6-speed manual gearbox version (3,719 lb. vs. 3,722lb.). But you’ll have to ante up an extra $1,185 for the sweet Hydra-Matic 6L80 tranny, which offers quick manual up and down changes via steering wheel mounted paddles.
Chose the LT and you’ll be sure to miss the war whoop and burble of the SS’ 6.2 liter V8. But the ripping sheet cry of the V6 has a charm of its own that’s reinforced every time you jet by a pump island occupied by the thirstier SS.

- TORQUE: 273 lb.-ft.
- TRANSMISSION: 6-speed manual
