The HHR was introduced in 2006 and for 2007 remains relatively unchanged. There are three trim levels for this five-door retro-cruiser that is styled to replicate a 1949 Suburban. The LS and LT1 model comes equipped with the 2.4Liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine that produces 149HP. Move up to the LT2 and you get a the same 2.4Liter engine with 16 valves that increases the horsepower to 172. A five-speed manual transmission is standard with a four-speed automatic optional.Read more Read less
For 2007, Chevrolet has introduced a "panel" version of the HHR. This trim deletes the side windows, rear side doors, and the rear seats to provide 55.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the driver and front passenger. GM hopes the Panel HHR will appeal to urban-based companies looking for a small, efficient delivery vehicle. The rest of the model line-up remains the same as 2006. two new colors, Imperial Blue Metallic and Golden Teal Metallic, are now available. Both engines reported slightly higher horsepower and torque outputs.
Retro styling; flexible interior configuration; fuel efficient cargo mover.
