The HHR Chevy is General Motors entry into the retro look market, designed after the ’49 Suburban, it is a copy of another well know cruiser. It was made from 2005 to 2011. It is a stylish 4 door station wagon falling in the compact crossover wagon-SUV category. A panel van version was made for use as a delivery vehicle.

All of the engines came from the Ecotec motor family. Ecotec engines are all inline four cylinder engines using an aluminum block and a DOHC [double overhead camshaft] cylinder head. They range in size from 1.8 liters to 2.4 liters.
Here is the lineup of all engines offered and their RPO [regular production option] codes:

GM claimed the decreased demand of the compact SUV market as the reason why the HHR will be discontinued. One other cruiser looking vehicle has been discontinued as well, the PT cruiser, so sales across the board were falling.
Since 2005, Chevrolet has sold more than 500,000 HHR’s which have been popular as rental vehicle and commercial/business vehicles. Chevrolet believes that the new Equinox has taken a large portion of the HHR’s market.
It was built on the popular GM front wheel drive chassis, engines are specifically manufactured for use in transverse mounting system front wheel drive cars. The setup is shared by many other GM cars in said class.
