They reinforce the transition from the front body to the interior, the front zone of the roof frame, the B-pillars, side sills and parts of the floor. The proportion of these parts in the body structure is 17 percent. A carbon roof with visible fiber structure is also available as an option, delivering a further weight saving of 3 kilograms (6.6 lb).

"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.

Hydraulic engine mounts, electronic throttle control, adaptive exhaust systems, improved aerodynamics and other technologies help the engines operate in four-cylinder mode for longer periods of time with Active Fuel Management, further increasing efficiency. Combining a decidedly urban-industrial design aesthetic with functionality aimed at young professionals, the GMC Granite Concept takes the brand trademark capability in a new, more progressive direction. It was introduced at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The 2017 Acadia builds on a legacy of intuitive functionality, with new features such as a split-folding second-row seat that improves on the original Smart Slide feature of the current model. It offers greater flexibility, including the capability of the curbside seat sliding and tilting forward, even with a forward-facing child seat in place, while the driver-side section tips and slides forward for easier access to the third row. The 50/50-split third-row seat folds flat for a completely flat load floor behind the second row and when the second row is also folded, there 79 cubic feet (2,237 liters) of cargo room. Levers at the rear of the vehicle make it easier to fold the second- and third-row seats.

The 2018 GMC Terrain goes on sale in summer 2017 in SL, SLE, SLT and Denali models, maintaining the momentum created by the first-generation model, of which more than 700,000 have been sold in North America since it went on sale in 2009. The new GMC Terrains bold exterior signals the next chapter of GMCs design language, evolving the brands signature cues with stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements such as the grille and lighting features. Its shape was refined in the wind tunnel to help ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air with optimal efficiency and quietness. "It is a striking design with functional beauty," said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design. "Theres confidence and optimism in its stance, with exceptional attention to detail that speaks to GMCs rise as a premium brand."
Eleanor Norton GMC, 2017-10-24 01:40:38. "Typically, a vehicle sales can be illustrated on a bell curve during its lifecycle, but the Acadia success has defied convention with impressive sustainability," said Aldred. "It a shining example of GMC momentum and were confident it will grow with the new Acadia." The strategic re-scoping of the 2017 Acadia offers customers a midsize crossover positioned between the compact Terrain and full-size Yukon. Depending on the model, it is available with five-, six- or seven-passenger seating, while offering greater maneuverability than the first-generation model.
Eleanor Norton GMC, 2017-10-24 01:42:43. Bold styling and advanced technologies - including new safety and security technologies - support Yukon greater capability, while a more comprehensive list of standard features and enhanced infotainment options are designed to broaden the appeal of one of the industry most-popular full-size SUV lineups. Combined Yukon/Yukon XL and Denali sales were up 24 percent for the eight months of 2013. "Weve engineered the Yukon and Yukon XL from the ground up, building on a strong legacy of capability to take them to the top of the segment with exceptional refinement and purposeful technology," said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. "And when it comes to the tasks people rely on a full-size SUV for, they do it better than ever - and with more style."
Niamh Hart Chevrolet, 2017-10-21 00:59:06. "When you want to hustle, it is incredibly fast, with significantly higher levels of acceleration, braking and road-holding grip," said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer for Chevrolet full-size trucks. "When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness." Crossovers become more agile when they drop some weight. For the redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, shedding nearly 400 pounds - approximately 10 percent of its mass - pays dividends in a nimbler, more responsive and more refined driving experience. Combined with this weight loss, the all-new body was designed and optimized for top safety ratings.
