Chevrolet Motor Division has officially selected the name HHR for its all-new crossover vehicle. HHR will begin production in summer of 2005 as a 2006 model.
"With its expressive design and surprising functionality, HHR is a great addition to our family of Chevrolet vehicles," said Pete Langenhorst, Chevrolet Cobalt and HHR marketing director.
HHR was an internal codename for "heritage high roof," representing the design of Chevrolet's trucks in the late 1940s. The styling of the HHR reflects both the look of a 1949 Suburban and the current SSR.
HHR is part of Chevrolet's new small vehicle lineup, which includes the all-new 2005 Cobalt and 2004 Aveo. It will be the third vehicle based off of GM's Delta global architecture.
