A new Canadian study shows that a quarter of the cars on the road produce the most pollution. According to NBC News, researchers monitored traffic in downtown Toronto and found that “25 percent of the cars they measured produced 95 percent of the total particulates and 93 percent of the carbon monoxide.” This 25 percent of vehicles also produced black carbon, which is often linked to lung disease, and other carcinogens.
Most pollution is found near high-traffic roads, but the study found that “those living or working as much as 900 feet downwind from a highway can be exposed to twice the pollution of those further away.”
Mazda SkyActiv Technology uses innovation to look at all elements of a car to prevent this type of pollution. Mazda looks at the engine, transmission and platform of their vehicles and uses SkyActiv Technology to to bring game-changing innovations to the cars’ performance and fun. Mazda offers the SkyActiv-G gasoline engine as well as the SkyActiv-D diesel engine to deliver greater fuel efficiency by compressing the air-fuel mixture and squeezing out more energy from every drop of fuel. Additionally, Mazda’s SkyActive-Drive and SkyActiv-MT transmissions provide the perfect control. They also help improve fuel efficiency as well as car performance.
According to Mazda, their ideal platform “is one that combines a highly rigid but light framework with driving comfort made possible by dramatic improvement of the cars’ basic driving functions— accelerate, turn and stop.” The SkyActiv-Body and SkyActiv-Chassis are trimmed down to ensure safe and pleasurable driving.

Dodge has unveiled its fastest Viper to date— the 2016 Dodge Viper American Club Racer (ACR). The Viper ACR was revealed by Dodge chief Tim Kuniskis at an event and tour of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Conner Avenue Assembly Plant that hand-builds the powerful sports car.
Kuniskis said the 2016 Viper ACR is “the fastest street-legal, track car (they’ve) ever built.” The Viper ACR has speeds up to 177 mph, and its aerodynamics and high downforce, combined with its powerful brakes, allow it to complete a lap on the track faster than any other Viper.
The 2016 Viper ACR has an 8.4-liter V-10 engine with 645 hp and 600 lb ft of torque. It will go on sale this fall. In the meantime, check out our inventory of other Dodge vehicles.
Chevrolet has released teasers for the new 2016 Camaro muscle car, which reveal a more angular look for the sporty coupe. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is set to be unveiled at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park on Saturday, May 16.
The latest teasers for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro hint at aerodynamic features including the car’s design, track-handling features, stiffness, lightweight construction and available V-8 engine.
According to Chevy, they spent over 350 hours in a General Motors Company wind tunnel to perfect the Camaro’s aerodynamics. The new Camaro will slip through the air better as well as produce more downforce at speed. Additionally, the engineering team improved cooling performance and lowered wind noise.
The new Camaro will go on sale in late fall, but check out our inventory of other Chevrolet vehicles in the meantime.
