Libby Wade BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:21. The new BMW i3s incorporates a number of design elements all of its own that underscore its particularly dynamic character. Both the front and rear aprons are notable for their model-specific, powerfully shaped contours. At the front, the bumper inlay as well as the U-shaped surround encircling it have a black finish. The front apron‘s side sections are bordered on their lower edge by accent strips in BMW i Blue or Frozen Grey that further emphasise the width of the car. The accent in the closed BMW kidney grille is also painted in high-gloss black on the BMW i3s to give the grille a larger and more prominent appearance. The rear apron of the new BMW i3s is likewise composed of individually styled contours, while the black surround frames an extra-wide, body-coloured inlay. On the new BMW i3s, the roof line accent also sports the same high-gloss black finish as the A-pillars.

Among these features are the standard - and strikingly dynamic - M Performance-specific exterior design cues, which include the M Aerodynamic kit with design elements finished in Cerium Grey Metallic. The flap-controlled M Sport exhaust system with Black Chrome tailpipe embellishers, M Sport brakes, M Sport suspension with M Performance specific tuning, Variable sport steering and standard 19-inch or optional 20-inch and 21-inch cast light-alloy wheels provide a distinctive sporting character. The X3 M40i can be equipped with the available Adaptive M Sport suspension, which covers an even wider spread of ride comfort featuring the sportiest set-up suspension available.

"We have had the incredible opportunity to meet literally thousands of Gen 5 Camaro owners who provided direct feedback on what they loved about their car and what they wanted for the next-gen Camaro," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "As a result, the 2016 Camaro builds on what made the current Camaro such a success with more power, more agile handling and more technology. We expect it will set the new benchmark in the segment - and give a new generation of enthusiasts a reason to fall in love with Camaro." Approximately 70 percent of the architectural components are unique to Camaro. Through extensive computer-aided engineering, structural rigidity was increased by 28 percent, while the body-in-white mass was reduced by 133 pounds (60.5 kg). In their quest to make the 2016 Camaro as lean as possible, engineers and designers evaluated every aspect of its architecture - already the most mass-efficient ever created by GM - and supporting elements, saving grams here and pounds there that contributes to the car lower curb weight. As a result, the total curb weight for Camaro has been reduced by more than 200 pounds (90 kg). Significant weight savings came from using an aluminum instrument panel frame instead of steel, which saved 9.2 pounds (4.2 kg). The use of lightweight components, including aluminum front suspension links and steel rear suspension links with lightening holes, in the new five-link rear suspension system contributed to a 26-pound (12 kg) reduction in the overall suspension weight. With the lighter, stiffer architecture and more powerful engines, the Gen Six Camaro SS delivers better lap times than the fifth-generation track-focused Camaro 1LE package.
Eleanor Norton Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 19:04:07. "The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. "But with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap - this is the ultimate track-day Camaro." In preliminary testing, the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE was 3 seconds faster than the standard ZL1 Coupe around General Motors 2.9-mile, 18-turn Milford Road Course test track. "The new Camaro ZL1 1LE offers the supreme track experience," said Mark Dickens, executive director, Chevrolet Performance Variants, Parts and Motorsports Engineering. "It’s the pinnacle of Camaro performance and advances the 1LE nearly 30-year legacy of uncompromising, track-tailored capability."
Paige Dodd Chevrolet, 2017-10-21 00:58:59. Chevy introduced a new special edition for the Tahoe and Suburban: the street-performance Rally Sport Truck, or RST. The Chevrolet Tahoe RST will also be available with a new Performance Package that includes a 420-hp, 6.2L V-8 engine; Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration; and an all-new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. "Chevrolet has continually invested in Tahoe and Suburban, developing models with varying combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers," said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck Marketing director. "The RST is designed for customers who want a street performance look without sacrificing capability or refinement, along with the option of increased performance as well."
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-21 00:59:06. The LT1 engine is available with a standard six-speed manual transmission - with new Active Rev Match technology that "blips" the throttle for perfectly timed downshifts - or the Hydra-Matic 8L90 paddle-shift eight-speed automatic. Each engine has been carefully tuned for a distinctive performance sound. All 2.0L turbo models feature active noise cancellation, which uses sound waves to cancel unwanted cabin noise. Models equipped with the available Bose audio system also feature engine sound enhancement, which amplifies the native sounds of the 2.0L turbo engine - and can be disabled based on the driver preference. Both the 3.6L V-6 and 6.2L V-8 feature mechanical sound enhancers - resonators that direct induction noise from the engine bay into the cabin. Both engines are available with a dual-mode exhaust, which features electronically controlled valves that bypass the mufflers under acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. With the dual-mode exhaust, drivers can personalize the exhaust sound, from a "stealth" mode to the most aggressive "track" mode.

The spacious cargo area features new storage options such as a large, hidden underfloor storage space and a flat cargo floor that helps make loading and unloading easier. Purposeful technologies are designed to help passengers be safe, comfortable and connected. Teen Driver is offered, along with safety features such as Safety Alert Seat, Surround Vision, Forward Collison Alert with Following Distance Indicator and more. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is on sale now, starting at $24,525 (including destination charge). Tax, title, license, and dealer fees extra. Chevrolet is commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Corvette with a new Corvette Carbon 65 Edition offered on 2018 Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ models. Limited to only 650 numbered vehicles globally, the distinctive Carbon 65 blends visible carbon-fiber exterior elements - notably, a new carbon-fiber rear spoiler and quarter ducts - with a new Ceramic Matrix Gray exterior color and special interior appointments, including a new carbon-fiber-rimmed steering wheel.
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-21 00:58:47. The new Captiva underpins Chevrolet driving force - value for money. From the entry level 2.4 litre petrol-engined front wheel drive LS to the fully equipped 2.0 litre 150 PS diesel automatic LT, Captiva leaves nothing to be desired at any level. It will also appeal to a wide range of customers, from established families looking for a more stylish alternative to a seven-seat MPV to those with an outdoor lifestyle desiring a practical load carrier with good road manners and soft-road capability for those weekends in the country. Coming in close behind value is striking design and Captiva excels here too. It heralds the introduction of a new-style generation of Chevrolet products for Europe and, both inside and out, features design cues that will become familiar on future models. Examples include the strong face of the brand incorporating a prominent Chevrolet logo; the facia design with integrated in-car entertainment and unambiguous controls, clear and informative instrumentation and details on the door cases, seats and console. Add the use of new high quality materials and even closer attention to fit and finish and you have a high quality product that belies its great value pricing.
Eleanor Norton Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 19:03:43. The 6.2L V-8 will be paired with an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. With smaller steps between each ratio, the transmission maximizes engine power under acceleration. With a wide 7.39 overall gear ratio spread and lower numerical top gear ratio, the transmission also improves efficiency by reducing engine revolutions at highway speeds. Based on preliminary estimates, the Tahoe RST Performance Package will offer a towing capacity of 8,400 pounds and the truck will be cable of 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 6 seconds. Full performance metrics will be announced closer to launch. Magnetic Ride Control is an active suspension that "reads" the road every millisecond, triggering damping changes in the electronically controlled shock absorbers in as few as 5 milliseconds. As a result, the suspension delivers both improved body-motion control during cornering and a more comfortable ride while cruising. The new performance calibration included in the Tahoe RST Performance Package increases body control for even higher levels of responsiveness and comfort.
