I've searched everywhere but can't find an answer, hopefully someone here knows.

I'm looking at a few 5.7L VT's and noticed that redbook says the SS will do 0-100 in 6.6seconds; whereas the VTII 5.7L Executive does 0-100 in 9.3seconds... Is this right?

Same engine with same tune I thought, and less weight in the exec. Is the exec really that much slower? And if so why?

Thanks!

Doesn't the SS have more features than the exec, better suspension etc?

Must be a mistake in Redbook, sounds like they have given the time for an 'S' not an 'SS'. Out of the 2 I would definetely go the SS, better looking better resale.

Check a V6 VT executive, and more than likely will have the same 0 to 100 times.

Redbook have just used the V6 times on the V8 description.

I would agree here with what others have said, that it is a fault on redbook.

Definitely get an SS over an Exec, I personally have a VTII Exec (Ex-Highway patrol), and I love it.

But you will have much better resale plus lots of optional extras in a SS compared to a base model Exec.
