Default Stolen name

Seems Toyota has developed the SLE on a model of their own. I understand the SE (IMO Standard Edition) but the SLE?

Some letter patterns are just cliche.
Like the R/T'* of the road.

The dodge stratus has the SE, ES, R/T.

Even names are sometimes "borrowed" like the concorde.
Chrysler had one, as did AMC.

Since at least 1999, the Solara'* been using the SLE for the top model designation.

Not a bad car, I'd take the first-gen model in V6 5-speed form.
