General Motors
for the 2006 to 2009 model years. A replacement for the Aztek , it was a mildly restyled version of the first-generation Chevrolet Equinox
Chevrolet Equinox
. The Torrent shared its basic body structure and mechanicals with the Equinox. However, the Torrent had a different front and rear end to distinguish it visually from the Equinox. The suspension was also modified to be firmer and sportier, and the electronic power steering was recalibrated to deliver a firmer, less artificial feel. The Torrent shared the Equinox's 185 hp (138 kW; 188 PS) 3.4 L V6 with the 5-Speed Aisin AF33 automatic transmission. The Pontiac

Saturn L-Series
The SATURN L-SERIES was a line of automobiles that were made by Saturn Corporation . The L-Series was line of sedans and station wagons that were made in Wilmington, Delaware
Wilmington, Delaware
by Saturn Corporation. Poor sales of the L-Series caused GM to cancel the line for 2005. The first L-series car was built in May 1999, and the last one rolled off the Wilmington line on June 17, 2004, after a short run of 2005 models. About 406,300 L-series cars were built in this period. The plant was then retooled to build the Pontiac Solstice

Automatic Transmission
An AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, also called AUTO, SELF-SHIFTING TRANSMISSION, N-SPEED AUTOMATIC (where n is its number of forward gear ratios), or AT, is a type of motor vehicle transmission that can automatically change gear ratios as the vehicle moves, freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually . Like other transmission systems on vehicles, it allows an internal combustion engine , best suited to run at a relatively high rotational speed , to provide a range of speed and torque outputs necessary for vehicular travel. The number of forward gear ratios is often expressed for manual transmissions as well (e.g., 6-speed manual). The most popular form found in automobiles is the hydraulic automatic transmission. Similar but larger devices are also used for heavy-duty commercial and industrial vehicles and equipment

Wheelbase
In both road and rail vehicles , the WHEELBASE is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels. For road vehicles with more than two axles (e.g. some trucks), the wheelbase is defined as the distance between the steering (front) axle and the centerpoint of the driving axle group. In the case of a tri-axle truck, the wheelbase would be the distance between the steering axle and a point midway between the two rear axles. Wheelbase

Getrag F23 Transmission
The F23 is a five-speed manual transmission manufactured by Getrag in Italy. It is designed for transverse engine applications, primarily by General Motors . It can handle torque inputs of over 230 newton metres (170 lbf⋅ft ). The Getrag F23 is a three-axis conventional transverse 5-speed manual transaxle with fully synchronized reverse gear. It features compact packaging, broad low-torque applications, and reliable operation. The F23 has two gearsets on each of three parallel shafts – the input shaft, the output shaft, and the intermediate shaft. This three-shaft (also called three-axis) design results in a very short axial length for better packaging. There are three separate shift fork shafts, which hold three shift forks to activate the synchronizer rings for the two gearsets on each of the three gear shafts. The shift forks are activated by a cable system

Continuously Variable Transmission
A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION (CVT) (also known as a SINGLE-SPEED TRANSMISSION, STEPLESS TRANSMISSION, PULLEY TRANSMISSION, or, in case of motorcycles , a TWIST-AND-GO) is an automatic transmission that can change seamlessly through a continuous range of effective gear ratios . This contrasts with other mechanical transmissions that offer a fixed number of gear ratios. The flexibility of a CVT allows the input shaft to maintain a constant angular velocity . A belt-driven design offers approximately 88% efficiency, which, while lower than that of a manual transmission, can be offset by lower production cost and by enabling the engine to run at its most efficient speed for a range of output speeds

VTi Transmission
The VTI is a continuously variable transmission for automobiles . It is fully automatic, electronically controlled, and designed for transverse front-wheel drive use. The VTi is assembled at a General Motors /Fiat joint venture plant in Szentgotthárd , Hungary . Quality issues delayed the introduction of the VTi until the second quarter of 2002. Production ended in 2005. The VTi can handle a maximum of 200 N·m (147 ft·lbf) of torque for vehicles weighing up to 2100 kg (4630 lb), with gear ranges from 2.61 to 0.44. A 2.15 reverse gear is also specified. The effective final drive ratio is 4.35. It uses two sets of 12 steel bands (Van Doorne belts) inside a die cast aluminum casing. GM claims that the CVT's bands, normally a weak spot in CVTs, are reliable for at least 100,000 miles (161,000 km). A 225 mm (8.9 in) torque converter is also used

Nickel Metal Hydride Battery
A NICKEL–METAL HYDRIDE BATTERY, abbreviated NIMH or NI–MH, is a type of rechargeable battery . The chemical reaction at the positive electrode is similar to that of the nickel–cadmium cell (NiCd), with both using nickel oxide hydroxide (NiOOH). However, the negative electrodes use a hydrogen-absorbing alloy instead of cadmium . A NiMH battery can have two to three times the capacity of an equivalent size NiCd , and its energy density can approach that of a lithium-ion battery
