Definately don't mean anything.. If they did, you'd see something like LE on the highest end model, since that would mean "luxury edition," but instead, that'* on the lowest trim level of the 87-91 Bonneville. LE>SE>SSE. They're just letters arranged by GM to make a trim level. Most companies don't mean anything by the letters they assign to vehicles, such as LT, LS, etc etc.

The only ones I know that have any meaning are ones like Z71, WS6, Z06, Z51 and other RPO code "trim levels." Z51 was never officially badged though AFAIK, but same idea.

Is SE had any meaning, "Standard Edition" would fit best IMO. I usually find that most cars that are "SE" are the lowest trim level, so that logic makes sense to me.

This topic has been beat to death...not only in this thread, but several others.

Black_Stallion - feel free to start a new thread about options available in the SLE trim level.
