It's A Crazy Automotive World

Collaborations between DC and GM, and GM and Ford... what's next...
Palestinians and Israelis celebrating holidays together?

---
General Motors and DaimlerChrysler have signed their long-brewing deal
to develop hybrid cars together, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Announced last December and confirmed in contract on Monday, the deal
will split hybrid development between the two companies.
DaimlerChrysler will take the lead for rear-drive luxury cars, while GM
will be responsible for developing the hybrid system to be used in
trucks, SUVs, and front-drive cars and crossovers. The two-mode hybrid
system is expected to boost fuel economy in vehicles up to 20 percent.
The first vehicles to receive the systems in 2007 are the Chevrolet
Tahoe/GMC Yukon sport-utes, followed by the Dodge Durango.


GM's other joint venture in Detroit will produce a new six-speed
automatic that will appear in the 2007 Saturn Aura sedan, the company
announced on Thursday. The new gearbox will be known as the Hydra-Matic
6T70 in its GM iteration; it's being co-developed with Ford Motor
Company, which is expected to put versions in its new mid-size and
large sedans in the 2007 model year. The gearbox has been designed with
front-drive and all-wheel drive, and transversely-mounted engines in
mind, and could deliver a four-percent fuel-economy boost to some
vehicles compared to GM's current crop of four-cylinder automatics.
Tiptronic-style shifting has been built into the gearbox's electronics.

So what happened to the variable ratio (CVT and IVT) automatics? Thought
they were going to be the answer to all this stuff? You do know Fords new 5
speed automatic is the old 4 speed with a different shift logic. Shifts
first, first OD, second, third, forth and OD.
