An Inside Look at the "Torture Testing" of Cars
The General Motors Climatic Wind Tunnel can crank up the wind to 150 MPH and put a car through temperatures ranging from 40 below to 140 above. It can replicate environmental conditions such as snow storms, blizzards, ice, snow, and fog.
Recently, the new 2013 Malibu Turbo was subjected to powertrain cooling, cabin heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems to the conditions found from Death Valley, California and Denali, Alaska. Since the wind tunnel simulates real roads, it reduces the need to travel to remote locations, which helps save time and money. It also helps minimize the safety risks and traffic interactions associated with testing on public roads.
Each year, Chevrolet does business in more than 140 countries and sells more than 4 million cars and trucks.
