  • 2012 180 vs 180SS

    Sorry, new member here and new to boating. Looking at getting a 2012 180 with 4.3 190hp. I have seen some advertised at 180 and others as 180ss. What is the difference between them? From the pictures I dont really see any difference unless I am missing something.

    Anything i should be aware of with the 2012 4.3?

    Thanks!

        Mine is a 182, 2 inches longer, I can only afford 2 inchitis and 6 inches wider than the 180. My guess is the "SS" nomenclature is a package of accessories and/or features like the "LPX" nomenclature.

          Not completely sure but thought the SS had something to do with the additional stainless steel (i.e. cupholders etc.) that it was equipped with. Other than that I also have a 180 with the 4.3 and have found it to be a great combination where is offers some nice power along with solid efficiency (for a boat). If it's showing 190 HP also guessing this is the carbed version?

              yeah the one that is marked 180 has the stainless steel cupholders and grab bars and is carbed (not the mpi) so either it is a SS and just not advertised as such or there is something else that signifies SS?

                Sometimes SS refers to super sport seating but i think all newer crownlines have that. I have a 2006 190 hp BR 180. Nice combo. Of course a V8 would be awesome but they did not make one.
