It should be nice for those wanting that kind of power. I would imaging it should do pretty close to a 14-second quarter mile.
#9 of 17 Few more details (suprised they haven't been posted yet)
Sep 06, 2007 (4:04 pm)
2.0l ecotec turbochrged/ 260HP with 5Spd, 235 with 4 spd-auto. FE5 sport suspension with specific stabilizer bars, spring rates and damper tuning. Lateral grip of .86 g with MT. 4 wheel ABS disc brakes
New air dam-style front fascia with fog lamps
New mesh-style upper and lower grilles
New rear fascia with outlet for single bright exhaust tip
Rear spoiler (mounted above rear glass)
New rocker moldings
Body-color door handles, mirror caps and rear license plate surround
SS badges on the front doors and rear liftgate
Plus a few more odds and ends like no lift shift on MT version I believe. Not sure I have seen anything on quater mile, but have heard of 155MPH top speed. Might be real interesting thing to drive

Seems like a shame that they didn't go with a 6 spd manual and the 6 speed auto that will be in the new Malibu?

Any news on what kind of traction control the SS version has? Engine power cut?
Wheel braking ?
My new location includes snow and as AWD's not available for this, want to be sure the front wheels can do their best.

I don't know exactly how the traction control works on this, but do see StabiliTrak and traction control appear to be standard. Also a limited slip differential is available for the MT model.

I do know that on the Maxx SS the traction control is of the wheel brake variety .vs. simple power cut on the other Maxxes.
The latter's not much use. Hence the curiosity.
Perhaps stabilitrak will provide wheel braking on the HHR SS.

I was dissapointed when I traded my Maxx LT for the HHR. I kick myself every time I see a Maxx
Also, stabiltrak does the braking and traction control does the engine speed reduction. Some have both and some only traction control.
