Millie Lowe Audi, 2017-11-04 19:54:18. In the classic Miller cycle, the reduced cylinder charge is detrimental to torque and power output. These aspects have been neutralized by Audi thanks to the implementation of turbocharging and the two-stage Audi valvelift system (AVS). The four camshafts of the 2.9 TFSI can each be adjusted by 50 degrees crank angle. At higher load and engine speed ranges, AVS closes the inlet valve later. The opening time increases from 130 to 200 degrees crankshaft angle, while at the same time the valve lift increases from 6.0 to 10.0 millimeters (0.2 to 0.4 in). Cylinder charging also increases considerably - the 2.9 TFSI revs up powerfully and delivers an impressive output.
Eve Fitzgerald Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. The 2018 Odyssey shares the same 118.1-inch wheelbase with the previous-generation Odyssey for superb second- and third-row seating roominess, easy ingress and egress, and superior ride comfort. The overall length increases fractionally to 203.2 inches due to a 0.4-inch longer rear overhang, while the width decreases by 1.1-inches to reduce frontal area, reducing aerodynamic drag. Overall height is nearly identical. The dimensional adjustments do not compromise interior roominess, as the new Odyssey offers fractionally more front and third-row headroom, retains almost identical overall passenger volume, and offers more cargo volume, with two inches more length in the cargo area, than the previous generation.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. New on the 2018 Honda Odyssey are center door rails hidden under the rear side glass that replace the visible rails located on the body sides behind the rear doors on the second- through 4th-generation Odyssey. The result is a clean, seamless appearance for the rear body side and no visible side door rails or components. A safety latch prevents the left-hand sliding door from opening when the fuel lid is open. Like the front doors and tailgate, the side doors feature full 360-degree seals to reduce wind and road noise, water and debris from entering the vehicle.

"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 Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The new Honda Odyssey includes an underbody aero package consisting of a 2-piece undercover behind the front fascia and underneath the engine and transmission, flat underbody surfaces extending between the front and rear wheel areas, air-diverting strakes positioned ahead of all four tires, and an additional undercover behind the left rear tire (the tailpipe occupies the space behind the right rear tire). These undercovers directly improve fuel efficiency, particularly on the highway.
Shannon Griffin Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The strength of the "tailgate ring" (the circular metal structure surrounding the tailgate) is vitally important for superior vehicle handling, stability and ride quality. Debuting on the 2016 Honda Pilot and applied to the 2018 Odyssey for the first time, this advanced tailgate ring contributes to the new model gain in torsional rigidity, benefiting ride, handling and NVH. For the first time in the Odyssey, body stiffness is enhanced using structural foam inserts in key locations. These include the left and right C-pillar stiffeners, and within an inside bracket that connects the left and right side center frames under the front floor. The improved body stiffness pays dividends in handling precision, ride quality, NVH and crash safety.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. All Odyssey trims through Touring have 5.0 mm tempered front door glass while Elite adds 4.8 mm acoustic laminated front door glass and 4.3 mm acoustic laminated rear door glass. All Odyssey trims utilize 3.5 mm rear quarter window glass and 3.5 mm tailgate glass. In addition, the available power moonroof uses 3.5mm dark gray privacy glass. The Odyssey Elite includes rain-sensing wipers that automatically activate if water is detected on the windshield. Designed to cover the maximum possible windshield area, the left (driver) and right (front passenger) windshield wipers are 25.6 inches and 22.6 inches long, respectively. They also feature breakaway wiper pivots to mitigate the potential for injury in the event of a pedestrian collision. The rear wiper is 15.7 inches long.
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:42:46. Camaro leaner, stiffer platform and slightly smaller dimensions are accentuated by a dramatic, sculpted exterior. Meticulously tuned in the wind tunnel, the exterior contributes to performance through reduced aerodynamic lift for better handling while enhancing efficiency. A driver-focused interior integrates class-leading control technologies, including a new Driver Mode Selector, configurable instrument cluster and a customizable ambient lighting feature. "Redesigning the Camaro is thrilling and challenging all at once, but the secret is to offer something more," said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president of Product Development. "For Camaro enthusiasts, it retains iconic design cues and offers even more performance. For a new generation of buyers, the 2016 Camaro incorporates our most innovative engineering ideas with finely honed performance and leading design." Only two parts carry over from the fifth-generation Camaro to the new Gen Six: the rear bowtie emblem and the SS badge.
