    They tell the difference in models of the same car, like an EX might be a 4cylinder engine, but an LX will have a 6 cylinder engine.

    SS usually means Super Sport or something similar.

    When cars are manufactured, they have different options therefore, the identifying letters on the car.

    I have a BMW 330ix

    BMW is the make

    330 is the model (indicating a V6 engine, upgraded interior, and other options)

    the ix means its all wheel drive

    Hope I helped.

    these letters signify the stying or package on a vehicle --- as in power windows, locks, leather, a/c...

    the letters mean different things depending on the maker of the car.
