From Chevrolet press: Chevrolet’s fun, stylish and efficient Chevy HHR continues to shine as one of the compact segment’s most unique offerings. Powerful and efficient Ecotec engines are at the heart of the HHR lineup’s success, delivering good performance, value and convenience.
HHR models are available in LS and LT trims. There are two LT equipment packages: 1LT and 2LT. The 1LT includes a standard eight-way power seat including power lumbar, body-color outside mirrors and 16-inch fascia-spoke wheels painted Sterling Silver. Bright chrome exterior trim and a bright exhaust tip are available, as are 16-inch chrome wheels.
HHR 2LT comes with a larger Ecotec 2.4L engine and FE3 sport suspension with StabiliTrak. Additional standard features include ABS, fog lamps, bright exhaust tip, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, a 260-watt Pioneer sound system with subwoofer and bright chrome exterior trim. Heated leather seats (with two heating levels) are available on both LT packages.
The HHR lineup is powered by a family of technologically sophisticated, inline four-cylinder Ecotec engines that balance usable power with fuel and emissions efficiency. The standard engine for LS and 1LT models is the Ecotec 2.2L engine with variable valve timing technology. The Ecotec 2.4L four-cylinder is available on the 1LT and standard on the 2LT.
The 2.2L engine provides 155 horsepower (116 kW)* and 150 lb.-ft. (203 Nm)* of torque and the 2.4L engine provides 172 horsepower (128 kW)* and 167 lb.-ft. of torque (226 Nm)*.
