The engine also features Chevrolet first application of Exhaust Gas Heat Recovery, or EGHR, technology, which uses exhaust heat to warm the engine and cabin. EGHR improves engine warm up and ensures consistent fuel economy performance in cold weather. Additional fuel economy benefits come from Exhaust Gas Recirculation, or EGR. An 80-cell, 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides electric power to the hybrid system. It can power the Malibu Hybrid up to 55 miles per hour (88 km/h) on electricity alone. The gasoline-powered engine automatically comes on at higher speeds and high loads to provide additional power. In addition to the drive unit, the Malibu Hybrid also shares the 2016 Volt blended regenerative braking system, which provides maximum kinetic energy recovery during braking to be stored into the battery system to help maintain charge, and drive unit power electronics. An all-new, Ecotec 1.5L turbo is the standard engine in the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, offering a GM-estimated 37 mpg on the highway. It is part of a new global family of small-displacement gas engines designed with greater power density to deliver confident performance with excellent efficiency.
"Nobody in the industry offers a broader, fresher lineup of SUVs and crossovers than Chevrolet," said Batey. "From the all-electric Bolt EV to America longest-running nameplate, Suburban, weve got something for every customer and lifestyle." Chevrolet is adding two new trim levels for the 2018 Traverse - the sporty RS and luxurious High Country - to offer customers more choices for a personalized appearance.
The exterior of the Camaro is more sculpted and more muscular effect that makes the new car look significantly lower and wider than before, even though it is within two inches of the exterior dimensions of the current Camaro. "From every angle, you’ll never mistake this for anything but a Camaro," said Tom Peters, design director. "We‘ve taken that iconic design and amplified its proportions to reflect a more dynamic driving experience - like the T-shirt on a muscular physique." The front of the Camaro is defined by a cross-car grille/headlamp aperture, a signature cue that dates to the first generation. The new, expressive execution gives the Camaro a stronger, more determined face. It also displays a new, nearly fastback profile that flows into the pronounced haunches of the rear fenders, enhancing the wider, more aggressive stance. A more expressive take on the taillamps blends the horizontal aesthetic of the first generation with a dual-element theme and aggressive tapers for a contemporary appearance. Additionally, SS models have a unique rear spoiler.
All models share a more pronounced, sculpted roof panel that improves the structural rigidity of the roof for greater refinement. The roof is assembled using laser brazing, eliminating the need for "ditch channel" seams and cover trim, giving the car a sleeker appearance while saving half a kilogram compared to traditional spot welding. There also a new interpretation of the Camaro iconic red, white and blue "banner" insignia, displayed on the front fenders. Like the exterior, the interior is completely new yet instantly recognizable. The instrument panel, for example, is a departure from the previous model, but retains the Camaro familiar dual-binnacle-style instrument cluster hood. "Given the level of technology and performance, the interior had to be modern and driver focused." said Ryan Vaughan, interior design manager. "But although the interior is an all new design, it is still instinctively recognizable as a Camaro." The instrument cluster features analog instruments to provide the driver with essential performance information, as well as an available eight-inch-diagonal high-definition center screen that can be configured to provide additional information including navigation, performance, and infotainment features. Another eight-inch screen, integrated in the center of the instrument panel, serves as the interface for the enhanced, next-generation MyLink system. The new center console and center stack are designed with high performance driving in mind. For example, the heating and cooling controls are integrated into rings surrounding the air ducts. Eliminating the associated buttons makes the cabin feel more spacious, and makes adjusting the temperature easy while keeping your eyes on the road.
