Eve Fitzgerald Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:24. Underlying the four Fiesta variants unveiled in Cologne is an exterior that builds on the bold styling of the outgoing Fiesta, with a more elegant design, and a more fluid and transitional appearance. Simplified, straighter lines and de-cluttered surfaces deliver more visual strength. The bonnet offers a calmer design with no centre bulge, which allows the new, wider grille to dominate. Sleek headlamps offer a new wrap-around effect that is immediately recognisable day or night.
Caitlin Duncan Ford Fiesta, 2017-08-27 21:32:48. Ford’s new cylinder deactivation technology - first announced for the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine and a world first for a three-cylinder engine - will further improve fuel efficiency for Ford Fiesta ST customers without affecting performance by automatically stopping fuel delivery and valve operation for one of the engine’s cylinders in conditions where full capacity is not needed, such as when coasting or cruising with light demand on the engine. The technology can disengage or re-engage one cylinder in 14 milliseconds - 20 times faster than the blink of an eye - to seamlessly deliver full performance on demand. The all-aluminium engine also features an integrated exhaust manifold that improves efficiency by helping the engine reach optimal temperatures faster, and delivers torque more rapidly by minimising the distance exhaust gasses travel between cylinders and turbocharger. Gas particulate filter technology that reduces soot emissions will also feature.
Kiera Shaw Ford Fiesta, 2017-08-01 22:00:58. Reflecting the consumer shift towards portable digital multimedia, Fiesta delivers Bluetooth connectivity and two USB ports as standard, with an integrated CD player offered as an optional extra. DAB radio is available across the range. However drivers choose to access their music, Fiesta‘s sound systems will deliver high quality audio, including the first B&O PLAY Sound System to feature in a Ford model.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. 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.
Libby Wade Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:43:33. Loading the Traverse is a breeze with a new Chevrolet bowtie logo lamp feature illuminating the ground to show where drivers need to place a foot to activate the available hands-free power liftgate. A new split-folding second-row seat improves on the Traverse‘s original Smart Slide® feature. The curbside seat is capable of tipping up and sliding forward, even with a forward-facing child seat in place, to provide open and easy access to the third row. Third-row legroom is expected to be the most spacious in the segment at 33.7 inches (856 mm).
Mollie Slater Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:43:02. The Chevrolet Cruze Hatch has the same, class-leading 106.3-inch (2,700 mm) wheelbase as sedan models, but features a unique roof and rear-end structure - including wraparound taillamps and an integrated spoiler at the hsatop of the liftgate. It opens to offer 18.5 cubic feet (524 liters) of cargo space behind the rear seat. With the rear seat folded, cargo space expands to 42 cubic feet (1,189 liters). An all-new, more rigid and lighter architecture is the Chevrolet Cruze foundation for driving dynamism, while also playing a significant role in safety and efficiency. It is more than 200 pounds (91 kg) lighter than the previous-generation model due largely to a body structure that is 100 pounds lighter and an engine that 44 pounds (20 kg) lighter. The Chevy Cruze lineup in North America is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier - and a more expressive RS package, featuring unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler, fog lamps and - on the Premier model - 18-inch wheels. Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2016 Malibu - a completely restyled midsize sedan engineered to offer more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever. An all-new hybrid powertrain, which leverages technology from the Chevrolet Volt, will offer an estimated combined fuel economy rating exceeding 45 mpg. The Malibu standard 1.5L turbo powertrain is projected to offer 37 mpg highway.
Millie Lowe Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:43:22. "Corvette is one of the most storied names in Chevrolet and sports car history, with a heritage few can match," said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president Chevrolet Marketing. "The new Carbon 65 Edition honors that legacy, while offering customers another unique, special-edition model that personalizes the ownership experience." Chevrolet has established a new performance benchmark with the introduction of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE - the most track-capable Camaro ever. Taking the track-focused 1LE formula to an unprecedented level, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE incorporates racing-based suspension and aero technologies, as well as exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R summer-only tires,* in an extreme track performance package.
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:42:46. "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.
Libby Wade Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:43:49. "The driving experience is significantly different," said Aaron Link, lead development engineer. "Immediately, you will notice how much lighter and more nimble the Camaro feels. That feeling increases when you drive the Camaro harder - it brakes more powerfully, dives into corners quicker, and accelerates faster than ever." The Camaro features a new, multi-link MacPherson strut front suspension with Camaro-specific geometry. The double-pivot design provides a more precise feeling of control, including more linear and communicative feel from the quick-ratio electric power steering system. At the rear, a new five-link independent suspension yields outstanding wheel control and reduces "squat" during acceleration. In addition, the Magnetic Ride Control is available on the Camaro SS for the first time. Previously limited to the Camaro ZL1, the active suspension reads road and driving conditions 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the damper settings to optimize ride comfort and control. All Camaro models offer Brembo brakes - they‘re standard on SS - optimized for the car‘s mass and performance capability. On Camaro LT, the available brakes include 12.6-inch (320 mm) front rotors with four-piston calipers and 12.4-inch (315 mm) rear rotors with single-piston sliding calipers. Camaro SS employs 13.6-inch (345 mm) front rotors with four-piston fixed calipers and 13.3-inch (338 mm) rear rotors with four-piston fixed calipers.
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:42:27. The entry model may be well equipped but there’s a lot more to come as we move up the range. LT models come with just the 150PS diesel engine and are fitted as standard with 17" alloy wheels, levelling suspension, half leather trim, heated windscreen and ESP, the electronic stability control programme. Practicality is not overlooked on the LT either with a load restraining net, front passenger underseat stowage and a facia deposit box for coins or maps - there even a cooled glove box to stop your chocolate bars melting in summer. LT models come with side airbags as standard. Level ride rear suspension ensures that the vehicle maintains good road manners even with a full load and automatic transmission is available as an option with the diesel engine (seven seat models only), not always the norm in this sector. The LT is available as a specific derivative with either five or seven seats. With the seven-seat model comes a cargo net (in lieu of the five-seat load restraining net) and rear park sensors. At the top of the range comes the flagship Captiva LT Special Model. This really is the has it all Captiva and here are some examples: 18" alloy wheels, full leather trim, 8-way power driver seat, 6 CD autochanger, air quality system with full climate control, cruise control and a trip computer. The full specification for all Captiva models is listed later. SUVs have a practical job to do for the family but also offer a feeling of greater security when driving that is particularly appreciated by women. The command driving position ensures a great all-round view and controls are light and convenient. There is plenty of space inside Captiva for five adults in great comfort. The third row of seats (available in the LT model) will accommodate two teenagers in comfort and even adults for shorter journeys. The easy-fold feature on the third row and fold-flat capability for both second and third rows is impressive and the large hydraulically assisted tailgate with wide aperture makes the big boot area easy to load (for light shopping, the remote control operated tailgate glass is a real boon, opening without the need to unlock the rest of the vehicle).
