hope its the turbo, can't come soon enough. Caliber SRT is calling, GM will look like crap if its only the 200hp supercharged.

Blah, who's idea was it to make these GIFs?

But anyway, I agree that it is probably the new DI turbo.

Stupid. Not everything needs an SS trim and if they want more power from their HHR, just buy modifications... Meh.

Whens the "hybrid" (BAS) coming? Or the FlexFuel version? Wake up GM!!!

With that said, I do like it... it prevents the HHR from being a poseurmobile.

Wish they'd do something about the headlights, though. They look like the NASCAR paint-on ones.

At least it makes more sense than the Equinox SS (the HHR has a competitive powertrain). If it does get the DI Turbo, how about calling it the HHR Turbo? I think that sounds better than HHR SS-too many acronyms.

Ah, we could use a retro-mini muscle car...why not? :)

A bold move. Funny, as the Ford brand seems resistant to attempt any with its small cars.

I agree with Empowah, when is the hybrid or diesel coming out? Not that a turbo charged HHR isn't a great idea, they just need to also think green.

Implications on next Cobalt SS? Cobalt SS Turbo instead of Cobalt SS SC?

From what I have heard out of Lordstown is the Tubo is in the future for the Cobalt. I have been keeping an ear to the ground to see if I could confirm it but nothing yet.

How exciting!

Why would GM ditch the supercharger in favour of a turbocharger?

I love coming up with theoretical possibilities in my head.

Isn't that one only a concept? Or do you mean PT Cruiser GT?

Yeah... that's it... a rose (or turd?) by any other name... :banghead:

Whats the point? GM is wasting all those SS names and badges on vehicles that shouldnt have them.  SS's should be reserved for power, let the rest be LTZ's.

make 'em real exspesive too eh? LTZ/LT are just gay.

I like Chevys SS strategy. The price is very affordable, they can corner pretty good and do have more power. Not to an extreme degree---but if they did you can add alot to the price. Which I am not for.

Chevys new SS lineup is more powerful and faster then Chevys older SS lineups. On average anyhow.

Suddenly I am remeinded of a phrase....can't please all of the people all the time... :P

OK.....well then can I at least get dual exhaust outlets on the Trailblazer SS??? It looks terrible with one and is keeping me from buying one....for now.
