Are these 6-Piston calipers on my '21 SS?

My sticker build sheet has my car with 4-piston front and back, but the front calipers are huge compared to the back. Sorry for the neophyte question, I searched but "I still couldn't find what I was looking for."

Those are 4 piston fronts. Only the 1LE and ZL1 cars get 6 piston fronts.

I think yo can get them but Not sure if it’s a dealer installed upgrade. I thought I remembered seeing it on the build and price. Screen shot attached it’s a $3275 option by it self. Not worth it in my opinion you might as well get a 1LE and change out what you don’t want like I did. I figured it out when I was getting ready to order mine that if you added up what came on the 1lE package separately it was way more than the $7000. And you still could not get the wider wheels/tires except after market. No way to get the electronic limited slip differential at all.

I had the Matt black hood wrap removed First thing and the steering wheel and shift knob changed to regular leather and am very happy.

So anyway it is possible to have an SS with 6 piston Brembos and I don’t believe yours is because they look smaller than the ones on my car. But I don’t think it’s very likely you will see many that got ordered through that way.

Those are the 4 piston fronts, I have the same ones... There is an options 6 piston upgrade that is available but that isn't them...

Here are mine:



I painted my center hubs black to match my wheels, I didn't like the light gray...

Front brakes do up to 75% of the braking, so it isn't not at all surprising to see front brake equipment be much larger in size than what's on the rears...

As mentioned, you won't get the 6 piston setup unless you paid for it as an add-on option (and it isn't cheap).
