SE = Sedan (or Sedan Edition)
SLE = Sport Luxury Edition
SSE = Sport Sedan Edition
SSEi = Sport Sedan Edition initial

*Notes:*
-In this case, initial does not mean "letters"
-After 1995, SLE trim level was canceled. After that, it was available as a "package" on the SE models only. With that package you get Automatic Climate Control, H-type Exaust, Traction Control, and I don't know what else.
-For more info on what the SLE package contains, ask L27Buick.

We need to clarify that the above quote is a personal opinion of what one person likes to define these as, and that the only one that is 'correct' as far as Pontiac is concerned is the definition of SLE.

The rest OFFICIALLY mean nothing.

That'* right willwren.

I'm sorry if I caused any confusion.

Of course, the trim level names can mean anything. But usually, they are all around the same meaning of the above replies. (Except for the Sit Down and Shut up thing).

Another argument would be just for the sake of uniqueness. You see, most of the European car companies label their trim levels with numbers. (like Mercedes *-Class 400; *-Class 430; *-Class 55 and *-Class 600).

Now again, these are just hypothesis.

The GM dealer guy lied to you.
