Comparing Total Life Cycle Assessment of Efficient Vehicle Designs

This Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) follows up on the findings of the WorldAutoSteel study, A New Paradigm for Automotive Mass Benchmarking, which explored the current production vehicle data provided in the A2Mac1 teardown database.  Using statistical benchmarking regression models, the initial study identified those components that were lighter than others of the same size and […]

All New 2017 GMC Acadia/Denali Sheds 700 lbs. with Steel

This is a vehicle we’ll be investigating further!  Built on a new, lighter body structure, the 2017 Acadia’s driving dynamics are more responsive, while its shorter length and narrower width enable greater maneuverability, for easier turning in parking decks and easier parking in home garages. The body structure incorporates press-hardened, high-strength steels, which allowed thinner […]
