What’s New for ’12
All automatic transmission models are equipped with the new Active ECO System, which modulates the throttle and transmission shift points to deliver up to a 7% increase in “real-world” fuel economy.
Fuel-efficiency enhancements also include low-rolling-resistance tires, heat-blocking solar glass and an improved HVAC system.
Other changes include larger rear suspension bushings that smooth ride quality, while the GLS receives active dampers and exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal repeaters.
