2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.

GM Thanks Customers For 500 Million Rides in GM-Branded Vehicles

2015-culture-500-million-mh-1-1280x551

General Motors has announced the assembly of the 500 millionth GM-branded vehicle. This colossal achievement puts the GM brand miles ahead of any other automaker.

In recognition of this major accomplishment, GM would like to thank all who have owned a GM-branded vehicle over the years. There have been a half-billion GM-branded vehicles manufactured over 106 years, but it’s our customers who create memories, celebrate successes and reach countless milestones along life’s journey. You give GM vehicles life by making them a part of yours.

To show our enduring gratitude, GM CEO Mary Barra and GM Executive Vice President Alan Batey surprised wounded veteran and loyal Chevrolet owner Trent Brining with the keys to a new 2016 Malibu during an event at the Fairfax Assembly Plant. The celebration was attended by customers, employees and dealers.

Among some of the other big announcements, Alan Batey noted that GM will invest $174 million toward state-of-the-art equipment and advancements at the Fairfax Assembly Plant and also recently shared a plan to invest $5.4 billion in GM U.S. manufacturing to enable vehicle improvements that benefit customers.

Here’s to another 500 million and beyond.

Build Your Own Sports Car

The new 2015 Camaro is the perfect combination of distinct design, cutting-edge technology and exhilarating performance. Simply put, it’s the full package. Performance-driven design enhancements to the front and rear fascias give the new Camaro a low, wide, contemporary look.

But this sports car is more than a beautifully styled body, because what’s on the inside matters too. Whether you choose the 323-horsepower direct injection V6 or the amped-up 426-horsepower V8 available on SS, performance always rules. Harnessing that power for responsive handling is 4-wheel independent suspension that helps hug every corner.

Behind the wheel is a high-tech cockpit designed for driving. From cutting-edge technology like the available color Head-Up Display (HUD), to the 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen, everything that went into the new Camaro was genetically engineered to give you the most out of it.

Camaro owners already stand out from the crowd. And with a wide range of available dealer-installed accessories, you can take that iconic look up a notch. From heritage stripes and fender hash marks to ground effects and upgraded wheels, there are more than enough combinations to make every Camaro one of a kind.

The Camaro story has no ending… it’s just the beginning.

Chevrolet Racing

2014-chevrolet-MOSPO-indycar-mh-1480x503When Chevrolet decided to return to IndyCar racing three years ago, the manufacturer deemed three factors critical:

  • An engine package – small displacement (2.2L), higher performance (V6) with turbocharging and direct injection – relevant to current and future production models
  • Fuel efficiency through renewable fuels
  • Brand identity using Chevrolet engineers to design an aero kit specific to Chevrolet-powered cars

With the first two factors in place, Chevrolet returned to the series in 2012 and promptly won back-to-back-to-back manufacturer’s championships and two driver’s titles.

This year, Chevrolet-powered Verizon IndyCar Series race cars have a decidedly different appearance: they feature a Chevrolet-developed aero package, which was allowed for the first time under series rules.

“The aero kit gives us the ability to differentiate the Chevy-powered cars from the rest of the field, and take responsibility for a larger portion of the performance of the car via aerodynamics,” said Chris Berube, Chevrolet Racing program manager for Verizon IndyCar Series. “This also provides additional opportunities for two-way tech transfer between the motorsports group and production vehicle engineering.”

Chevrolet introduced its road-course aero kit to the media recently at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“This is an important milestone in Chevrolet’s involvement in IndyCar racing,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “We focused on developing an aerodynamic package that delivers an optimal balance of downforce and drag, along with integrated engine performance. It’s a total performance package.”

“This new aero kit provides Chevrolet drivers the capability to enter and exit corners faster, while maintaining high speeds on the straights,” said Berube.

With such a strong focus on speed and cornering, it was no surprise when the series’ teams got together for a preseason test at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, Will Power – the 2014 series champion and driver of the No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet – recorded the quickest lap. Power covered the 17-turn, 2.38-mile course in 1:07.3118 (123.010 mph) as Chevrolets turned in the top six fastest speeds.

“The Promoter Test at Barber Motorsports Park is always an exciting moment in the IndyCar season when our Chevy engineers get to see the fruits of their off-season labor in the hands of our Team Chevy racing partners,” Berube said.

“This year, the culmination of multiple years of effort into the Chevrolet aero kit was rolled out during this two-day test and so far, the results were in line with our expectations. Together with our teams, we learned more about the strengths and weaknesses of our road-course configuration and engine installation.”

The first race of the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series was March 29 on the streets of St. Petersburg, Fla. Chevrolet swept the top six finishing positions. For more information about the all-new Chevrolet IndyCar aero package, visit the GM Media Site.
