HHR SS debuting soon

Yup, you got it. Chevy HHR is next to get the SS badge.







Expected is the same 260hp/260tq Turbo DI 2.0L 4-cylinder as found in the Ponitac Soltice GXP and the Saturn Sky Redline.
Also expected are 5-speed manual and automatic transmissions.

Debut is expected soon, Woodward Dream Cruise perhaps?

I gotta say, this would be a fun little vehicle.
I like the rim design, and the tire choice.
Anxious to see what the interior treatment is like.

Glad to see 4 wheel disc on it, too.
The HHR is on my list of POSSIBLE next-vehicles...it all comes down to what is offered when it comes time for me to get a new vehicle..and what I can afford.
I always kinda wanted a Jeep Wrangler..hopefully this 'new' chrysler will get their act together.

Not a huge fan of the HHR also not a huge fan of the SS badges being put on everything that is top of the line. Its a shame or kick in the nuts to the late model SS. You see a SS back in the late 60's and it meant get out of the way. Now you see a SS monte and **** a altima could put it to shame.

Well ok, here's a test to that:

Line up 2007 Impala SS with a 1996 Impala SS, a 1966 Impala SS, a 1961 Impala SS..... and any other Impala SS ever built.

Also, name the course....
1/8 mile, 0-60. 0-100, 1/4 mile, standing mile, autocross, 1-mile road course, 4-mile road course, Nurburgring.

In every instance, the same car will get to the finish line first.
And guess which one that is.........

You got it.
The 2007 FWD Impala SS would open a can of whoop ass on the rest of 'em.

Ditto all of the above for the Monte Carlo SS.

Nissan doesn't make an Altima that runs mid-13s out of the box now do they.

I'd roll the HHR SS in a minute. Pull the badges and make the ride to/from work a little more fun

Heh not bad looking. Wonder how it will compare to that new dodge thing Caliber or whatever. And I'm with Anxious. Get the SS debadge it and have a little more fun DD. Hell then again a Huffy would be more fun than my DD Tercel. Never though I'd rue the day where I actually miss my Primered black Daytona.

The caliber gets like 172hp at it's max engine...and then you either get the 5spd manual..or the CVT auto..which is just a giant pile of crap. It's smooth shifting..but it's still smooth shifting crap. And it has Dodge's really-low gear ratios.
The HHR LTZ that has the 175hp ecotec would already beat the dodge caliber down with ease .
