Mollie Slater Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:16. "Brake interventions for Active Park Assist can prevent distracted drivers from having low speed parking bumps, and make parking in tight spaces even less stressful." Fiesta is the first car in its segment in Europe to offer Cross Traffic Alert, which warns drivers reversing out of a parking space of vehicles that may soon be crossing behind them. The feature is amongst 15 Fiesta driver assistance technologies in total, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Adjustable Speed Limiter, Blind Spot Information System, Distance Indication, Driver Alert, Lane Keeping Aid, Lane Keeping Alert and Forward Collision Warning.
Eleanor Norton Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. The Odyssey new engine - from the Honda EarthDreams® Technology powertrain series - is rated at 280 peak horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. peak torque. Peak engine output is up 32 horsepower and 12 pound-feet of torque from the previous model, with increased torque over the engine entire operating (rpm) range. The new, more efficient engine and transmissions, along with as much as a 75-pound reduction in vehicle weight (EX-L trim) and improved aerodynamics, among other reductions to running resistance, result in enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. With its 60-degree V-angle, the Odyssey V6 engine is inherently smooth and has compact overall dimensions that allow efficient packaging within the vehicle. The engine has a high-pressure die-cast lightweight aluminum alloy block with cast-in-place iron cylinder liners. Made with a centrifugal spin-casting process, the thin-wall liners are high in strength and low in porosity. The block incorporates a deep-skirt design with four bolts per bearing cap for rigid crankshaft support and minimized noise and vibration. The engine also uses a high-tensile strength steel crankshaft is for minimum weight.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The new Odyssey greatly benefits from a much more rigid and tightly sealed body with substantially increased use of structural adhesives and sealers, as well as new front and rear suspension subframes and extensive aerodynamic tailoring to form the basis for a quiet vehicle. Additionally, the 2018 Odyssey uses a refined, multiple-tier insulation package that takes noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) countermeasures to the next level, positioning it at the top of its competitive set.
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.

A cooling control spacer positioned in the water jacket surrounding the cylinders helps control warm-up and operating cylinder liner temperatures to reduce friction. Plateau honing of the cylinder lining further reduces friction between the piston skirts and the cylinder walls by creating an ultra-smooth surface. This 2-stage machining process uses two grinding processes instead of the more conventional single-stage honing process. Plateau honing also enhances the long-term wear characteristics of the engine. Designed with "cavity-shaped" crowns, the 2018 Odyssey pistons help maintain stable combustion and contribute to stratified-charge combustion. Ion-plated piston rings help reduce friction for greater operating efficiency. Heavy-duty steel connecting rods are forged in one piece and then "crack separated" to create a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally fitted bearing cap.

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. 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.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. 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.
