  • How does the driver interact with the front end lift system

    So far we know we push a button and the lift system activates.
    Does it then ask you if you want to save this GPS location?
    If so, how does the driver respond?
    Does the system keep the front end up with no more intervention by the driver?
    Will the system drop the front end down, by itself, after a short period of time?
    Will the system continue to hold the front end up even after the engine is stopped?

    Thanks for your time.

    Yes, at the reveal GM said that if you push the button to raise the front-end (at a location that hasn't already been programmed, the system will ask you if you want to memorize that location. If you answer "yes," the system will then raise and lower the front end automatically at that spot in the future.

    My assumption is that the first time you memorize a location, you'll have to manually lower the front end when done, and in the future the automatic system will keep the front end raised for that duration.

    In non-memorized mode, I would expect it to stay raised until you manually lower it.

    The exception to the above is that we believe the front end will automatically lower at a speed of about 24 mph.

      So, basically, the front end always lowers automatically. Right????

        Define always? We believe the following:

        If the spot has been programmed, the lift will raise and lower automatically.
        If you exceed ~ 24 mph, the lift will lower automatically
        If in completely manual mode, the lift will remain up until you exceed 24 mph or lower it manually.

        We don't know what happens if you shut the car off with the lift raised. It might lower by itself, it might stay raised. All will be revealed next year when cars are delivered to owners and the press.

          ALWAYS. As in when will you not drive the car over 24 mph? Sooner or later you will exceed 24 mph. My comment was made with tongue in cheek.

            If the system works anything like the exotics if you turn the engine off the car sill remain in the up position. I dont believe
            ​ that would be recommended.

              Have to ask.

              If you are traveling over a speed bump and set the memory to raise the front end, will it automatically raise when you travel over the speed bump in the opposite direction?
