Please do a search and read the previous posts. This has been discussed numerous times.

SSEi means nothing.

NBD. You will be surprised when you search for it. There are literally 50 posts on this question.

It means nothing. You guys take such a light topic WAY too seriously. Its a damn trim designation, you can call it what you want, and I clearly stated that my opinions were COMPLETELY unofficial.

I'm just saying whats logical.

john you've been here long enough and have seen the numerious threads that specifically state that they have been confirmed to mean nothing at all except SLE. all that will do is confuse any noobs. Remember your post will show up next time someone searches for this topic.

To me, unofficially they mean:
LE: Luxury Edition
SE: Sport Edition
SLE: Sport Luxury Edition
SSE: Super Sport Edition
SSEi: Super Sport Edition inducted (being that a type of forced induction is used in this trim)
GXP, well...there you might have me, and making something out of that might be a stretch.
Gransport Xtra Performance? Yeah, that one they can definitely claim that "it just looked cool"

This is the type of post that perpetuates the myth that it means something when someone stumbles across it.

The quote here means NOTHING more than a personal opinion of a member. SSEi means absolutely nothing. It is NOT an acronym for ANYthing.
