Default SSE.....i

What does the "i" STAND for? Is it an acronym? I've always wondered, but never asked!

PLEASE, NO ONE ANSWER "SUPERCHARGED"....

It doesn't stand for anything. The only acronym that does is the SLE package which stands for Sport Luxury Edition.

LE, SE, SSE, and SSEi mean nothing. Pontiac doesn't use acronyms in the same manner as other GM divisions.

Like willwren said, it doesn't actually stand for anything. If you really want SSEi to stand for something, then you could say "Super Sport Edition Inducted," but it doesn't actually stand for anything. Just like GTP.

It means many things to many people.

My definition from an LA auto show in 2000 during the intro of the new models is:
Safety, Security, Efficiency, intelligence.

Maybe they are. It would have looked like a one if they didn't.

With all the torque management issues and mystery codes, I think it is too smart for its own good.
