Chevrolet HHR Panel SS Turbo
The underpinnings and powertain of the HHR Panel SS concept include the production turbocharged and
intercooled 2.0L Ecotec engine that produces 260 horsepower (194 kW), unique exterior styling and an
SS-specific interior. The exterior details include production SS front and rear fascias, rocker panels, a modified SS front grille and an SS rear spoiler. It also features polished metal body side trim and 20-inch wheels that are unique to the concept vehicle, while a “suede” paint scheme has a satin appearance that recalls classic hot rods.
At the 2007 SEMA Show, Chevrolet revealed the HHR Panel SS – a customized vision that previews a forthcoming production model differing only slightly from the stylized SEMA concept. The Panel SS fuses the production HHR SS’s turbocharged powertrain and race track-bred suspension with the unique HHR Panel body style.The HHR Panel SS concept combines production components with custom details. And while the concept vehicle will be shown at events around the country, the HHR Panel SS limited-edition production model will be offered at Chevy dealers starting in the 2009 model year.
Inside, SS-embroidered sport seats – with suede-like Ultra Lux inserts – a new gauge cluster with 140-mph
speedometer, an A-pillar boost gauge and a new, driver-oriented steering wheel support the vehicle’s
performance capability. The cargo area – there is no rear seat – has been customized with billet aluminum
tie-downs, floor strips and load brackets.
