Kiera Shaw BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:23. BMW Motorsport returns to Le Mans with the FIA WEC in 2018. The last time a BMW race car featured on the grid was back in 2011, with the BMW M3 GT2. One year prior to that, the Jeff Koons’ (USA) BMW M3 GT2 Art Car had caught the eye, as it wrote the latest chapter in the story of the BMW Art Car Collection at Le Mans. Among the BMW Art Cars that had started previously at Le Mans were Alexander Calder’s (USA, 1975) BMW 3.0 CSL, the BMW 320i designed by Roy Lichtenstein (USA, 1977) and Andy Warhol’s (USA, 1979) BMW M1. BMW Motorsport‘s greatest sporting hour in Le Mans came in 1999, when Yannick Dalmas (FRA), Joachim Winkelhock (GER) and Pierluigi Martini (ITA) took overall victory in a BMW V12 LMR. The McLaren F1 GTR, powered by a BMW engine, had previously triumphed at the "Circuit de la Sarthe" in 1995. The first time a BMW car started at the 24 Hours of Le Mans was back in 1939, when a BMW 328 claimed a class victory after 236 laps of racing. After 1972, BMW cars regularly lined up at the endurance classic.

Goodyear tires are used on all models: The LT features standard 18-inch wheels wrapped with Goodyear Eagle Sport all-season tires and available 20-inch wheels matched with Eagle F1 Asymmetric all-season run-flat tires. Camaro SS features standard 20-inch aluminum wheels with Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 run-flat tires. The new Camaro will be offered with six different powertrain combinations, each designed to deliver improved performance and efficiency. The Camaro LT’s standard engine is a new 2.0L Turbo, rated at an SAE-certified 275 horsepower (205 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm). For power on demand, it offers a wide torque band with 90 percent of peak torque available from 2,100 rpm to 3,000 rpm, and maximum torque from 3,000 to 4,500 rpm. The 2.0L turbo will deliver 0-60 mph acceleration in less than six seconds and offer more than 30 mpg on the highway (GM-estimated), making it the most fuel-efficient Camaro ever.

ACE is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. It uses a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle, helping to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment. It can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash as well. ACE also helps reduce the chances that one vehicle will override or underride another, improving crash compatibility of vehicles that differ in size. ACE goes further by offering additional strength and protection in small overlap frontal collisions, which are among the most severe. Multiple material grades, including ultra-high-strength steel, are used in the Odyssey body construction to help optimize safety performance.

Tuned specifically to attenuate wind-, urban- and traffic-noise frequencies, the acoustic windshield uses an outer layer of 2.0 mm safety glass, a 0.7 mm thick middle layer of acoustic polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and a 2.0 mm inner layer for a total thickness of 4.7 mm - an increase over the 4.5mm thickness of the previous-generation Honda Odyssey windshield. This helps the Odyssey place at the top of its class in wind-noise performance.

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.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The new Odyssey makes widespread use of structural adhesives in the unit-body, supplementing structural welds and significantly increasing rigidity without the additional mass of steel components. Structural adhesives are used at the roof edges and around the moonroof opening, in the front floor and cowl area, in the A- and B-pillars, around the front suspension upper mounts, and extensively throughout the rear of the body. Applied before the body panels are welded together, some 147.6 feet of adhesives (32.8 ft. more than in the previous Odyssey generation) account for approximately 3.5 percent of the entire unit-body stiffness.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. The 2018 Honda Odyssey 3.5-liter V6 engine meets the tough EPA Interim Tier 3/Bin 125 and CARB LEV3/ULEV-125 emissions standards, and is certified to this level of emissions performance for 150,000 miles. Numerous advanced technologies are factors in the emissions performance. The unique cylinder head-mounted close-coupled catalytic converters light off quickly after engine start up, and a 32-bit RISC microprocessor within the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) boosts computing power to improve the precision of spark and fuel delivery. The engine features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) that continually adjusts the fuel delivery to yield the best combination of power, low fuel consumption and low emissions. Multiple sensors constantly monitor critical engine operating parameters such as intake air temperature, ambient air pressure, throttle position, intake airflow volume, intake manifold pressure, coolant temperature, exhaust-to-air ratios, as well as the position of the crankshaft and the camshafts.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. Odyssey EX and above trims include power sliding side doors that can be activated by a switch (to operate left, right or both doors) on the instrument panel, by a switch from the second-row seating area, by pulling on either the interior or exterior door handle, or by buttons (left or right) on the remote key fob. The system features improved operating logic. In the previous Odyssey generation, if the driver and a passenger outside the vehicle were to each activate a power side door at approximately the same time, the door could start to open with the first person action, and then stop as soon as the second person took action. To eliminate this on the 2018 Odyssey, new door logic enables the door to operate as intended if two identical activations (such as the driver and a passenger both wishing to open a door) are entered within a half second of each other. For instance, if a parent pulls up to the curb at school and presses the power side door open button at approximately the same time as does a child waiting curbside, the door will open as desired. If longer than a half second passes between activations, door operation will stop, and a warning beep will sound.
