this is not fact, only my own opinion.

GM has basically said that most of these mean nothing...but if you want peace of mind to call refer to them easier...

SSE: Super Sport Edition
SSEi: Super Sport Edition Inducted
and GXP...well Hans covered that. G-Series Xtra Performance...sounds weird, and its a stretch, but who knows.

The only one that EVER meant anything was SLE, and it was an RPO PACKAGE originally, not a badged model.
