New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 18, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas 10 ■ Herald-Zeitung ■ Friday, Fob. 18,1994_Wheels_little touches make a differenceChevrolet Corsica features a redesigned drive train for 1994 The big news with Chevrolet’s Corsica this year is the popular compact family sedan’s redesigned drive trains. The Corsica offers a choice of either four- or six-cylinder powerplants. The car’s 22-liter four-cylinder is the engine of choice by a three-to-one David margin in the Corsica, e. .Ham* its redesigned form, billions this engine produces 120 horsepower — IO more than last year’s version — while also improving fuel economy. It does all that via a host of friction-reducing design changes, including lightweight piston/rod assemblies, and a new assembled roller lifter camshaft that consists of separate lobes and journals that are permanently locked onto a hollow tube. Using a specialized assembly process called “ballizing,” all camshaft component pieces are positioned in their relative locations on the hollow steel shaft. This loosely fit camshaft is then placed in an assembly fixture and the camshaft components are aligned and secured. A steel ball, which is larger than the inside diameter of the camshaft tube, is then forced through the hollow shaft, expanding its diameter. As the ball passes through each component, the expansion of the shaft creates an interference fit that secures the component to the tube. Chevrolet engineers say the interference fit is capable of holding each cam component in position to withstand torque far greater than the demands of the LN2 valvetrain. After the camshaft is assembled, straightening, drilling, turning, grinding, surface hardening and polishing functions bring it to its finished state. An advantage of this new process is that different types of materials can be combined in the creation of a single camshaft. The 2.2’s assem- Th# narn drive train daalgn Is the biggest changs In tbs new Corsica. bled camshaft, for example, consists of three per-gallon improvement in city and highway different steel alloys and a cast iron gear. Con- mileage. versional camshafts typically were ground from a single steel billet. Optional aboard the Corsica for ‘94 is a 3.1 liter V6 that produces 20 more horsepower (up from 140 to 160) plus an estimated two mile- The 3IOO V6 has sequential fuel injection, a high resolution 24X ignition system, an assembled roller lifter camshaft, a cast aluminum structural oil pan, and composite rocker covers. The Corsica’s redesigned V6 is teamed with • submitted photo General Motors’ sophisticated 4T60-E automatic transmission. This “smart” four-speed delivers a seamless flow of torque as the powertrain module integrates the engine and transmission controls. The new transmission’s reliability will be enhanced by its new low-friction chain design, high-strength third clutch, and premium gear package. Also redesigned this year is the Corsica’s front suspension. The suspension redesign is focused on producing a smoother ride. Front control arms now feature vertical rear bushings that provide more isolation from road irregularities. Brakes on the Corsica for‘94 are discs at the front and drums at the rear. Power assistance is standard, as is four-wheel anti-lock. Automatic door locks are standard on 1994 Corneas. In addition to the automatic locking function, the lock system’s “unlock” feature automatically unlocks the doors when the ignition is switched off. (The unlock feature can be disabled and, in firer, had been on our test vehicle.) And a “relock” function cycles the locks after a door has been opened and closed when specific conditions are met. All ‘94 Corsicas are equipped with a driver’s side airbag and a passive front seatbelt system. A Child Comfort Guide, a device that encourages the use of rear seat/shoulder belts by children, is also standard equipment. It permits most children, as well as smaller adults, to comfortably wear the rear seat shoulder belt without the belt interfering with their face or neck. I found the interior of the Corsica to be very comfortable. Air conditioning and tinted glass are standard and an uplevel console with integral cupholder (there also is a retractable cupholder integrated into the instrument panel) and armrest, a passenger side visor vanity mirror and visor map straps are handy touches. Scotchgard fabric protection is standard on seats, door panels, floor carpeting and carpeted floor mats.
