Car companies are famous for making up designations that sound cool, tough, luxurious or whatever is needed. There'* people who are paid to think up that stuff.
BMW is about the only company that I can think of where most every number and letter in the name of the car means something, like the size of car, engine, tranny, etc. But BMW is very cool.

That is exactly what it stands for. It isn't just what you call it, that is what it stands for from what I have read.

As for the SE, GT, and GTP for the Grand Prix, they also have meanings:

SE: Standard Edition
GT: Gran Touring
GTP: I don't remember exactly what it is at the moment but there was a big long thread about it on ClubGP and it did stand for something.

Cool, Thanks guys, you just helped scratch an itch I could not reach before!

Well usually the designations stand for something like "GT = Grand Touring" "SE = Sports Edition"?

SRT-4 = Street Racing Technology
SVT= Special Vehicle Team

I guess in the Bonnevilles they don't mean squat? Oh well, inducted sounds good to me.

Just as long as GM does not go the way of the others with the characterless number names also like 3.2TL or 850 or whatever.

I'm with dbtk2 on this one. Also, I have seen the "i" on some modules of other makes mean "Intelligent", i.e. VVTi, Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence. But I have read that the SSE stands for Super Sport Edition.
