Chevrolet HHR Fall Limited Edition

Chevy announced the HHR Fall Limited Edition, a limited-production model with a striking, all-black appearance, including unique "black chrome" trim on the grille, door handles and 17-inch wheels. Only 4,000 examples will be built.

The HHR Fall Limited Edition is based on the popular HHR 2LT package, which includes the FE3 Sports Suspension Package. An Ebony interior with cloth seats is standard; leather-appointed seating is available. It is available for immediate ordering, with an MSRP of $20,265.

"The Fall Limited Edition model adds depth and excitement to the HHR lineup," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "Since its launch, customers have responded to the HHR's combination of great styling, great fuel economy and outstanding value - attributes that have made it one of Chevy's hottest new vehicles."

Indeed, Chevy HHR has exceeded expectations. Sales are on track to carry it to more than 100,000 units for the 2006 calendar year - far more than the 60,000-unit projection.

"The HHR is one of the most personalized vehicles on the market, and the Fall Limited Edition gives customers a custom look - especially with the unique, black chrome accents - right from the dealership," said Peper.

Black chrome is a special, tinted chrome finish featuring Lacks Enterprise's Spinelle™ Metal Finish. Its multicoat metal tinting process creates a unique, color-tinted appearance that maintains the depth and reflectivity of traditional chrome.

The HHR is one of the segment's safest and most efficient vehicles. It delivers 30 miles per gallon on the highway and can travel up to 450 miles on a tank of gas.

Since its launch, HHR has received five-star crash ratings - the highest rating awarded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program. The five-star ratings were awarded for the driver and right-front passenger in a frontal crash, as well as five-star side-impact crash ratings for front seat and rear seat passengers. The HHR also was the highest-rated SUV for the 2006 model year in NHTSA rollover testing.

HHR is a four-door vehicle with a rear touchpad liftgate. Its high roof evokes the look of the innovative 1949 Chevy Suburban, while other exterior cues carry unmistakably Chevy elements, such as the gold bowtie grille badge and round taillamps, which are reminiscent of earlier Corvettes.

The HHR features an open interior that provides the spaciousness and cargo capacity of an SUV. It has easy-to-maneuver dimensions and room for just about any lifestyle interest. The rear seats fold flat, providing 57.7 cubic feet (1,634 L) of storage space without having to remove a seat. With the rear seats up, the straight roofline and rear liftgate maximize cargo capacity, offering 25.2 cubic feet (638 L). Reconfigurable and convenient storage compartments accommodate everything from groceries to surfboards.
