Mollie Slater Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:16. The Ford Fiesta‘s floating, tablet-inspired 8-inch colour touchscreen can be operated with pinch and swipe gestures. Also offered with SYNC 3 is a floating 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, and a 4.2-inch colour screen is combined with the MyFord Dock that enables users to store, mount and charge mobile devices such as phones and navigation systems. All Fiesta screens offer class-leading resolution and are up to twice as bright as competitors, making it even easier for drivers to read and navigate on-screen information and functions.
Shannon Griffin Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. Acoustic laminated windshield glass helps reduce noise entering the cabin on EX-L and above trims. 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.
Eve Fitzgerald Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. 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.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The Honda Odyssey new direct-injection system enables increased torque across the engine full operating range along with higher fuel efficiency. The system features a compact, high-pressure, direct-injection pump that allows both high fuel flow and pulsation suppression, while variable pressure control optimizes injector operation. A multi-hole injector delivers fuel directly into each cylinder (not to the intake port, as in the previous generation Odyssey), allowing for more efficient combustion. The multi-hole injectors can create the ideal stoichiometric fuel/air mixture in the cylinders for good emissions control. Theoretically, a stoichiometric mixture has just enough air to completely burn the available fuel. Based on the operating conditions, the direct-injection system alters its function for best performance. Upon cold engine startup, fuel is injected into the cylinders on the compression stroke. This creates a weak stratified charge effect that improves engine start-up and reduces exhaust emissions before a normal operating temperature is reached.
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-20 11:42:27. 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. Located under the front floor of the new Honda Odyssey is a variation of the "3-Bone" structure used in the Pilot that improves impact load management, directing energy around the passenger cabin in the event of a frontal collision. The structure creates three different load pathways, or "backbones," that channel collision energy. One channels collision forces from the front of the vehicle directly underneath the passenger cabin; the other two channel collision forces under the vehicle left and right side frames. The result is an improved capability to safely channel energy during a frontal crash.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:35. The 2018 Odyssey enhanced Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is the second generation of Honda proprietary ACE structural design. 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.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The new fifth-generation Odyssey is a progressive and sporty evolution of the Odyssey well-known exterior form. In front, the 2018 model includes the latest version of Honda trapezoid grille, with boldly restyled chrome bars, stylized headlights, and new wing-shaped LED daytime running lights (DRL) lending a premium appearance on EX and above models. Bright LED headlights and fog lights complete the Touring and Elite trims. The hood gains new character lines that add a more visually enticing and sophisticated look, while the front fascia invokes a sports sedan, with a large lower air inlet.
