Volume I is part of a four volume set documenting areas of research resulting from the development of the Automotive Manufacturing Assessment System (AMAS) for the DOT/Transportation Systems Center. AMAS was designed to assist in the evaluation of industry's capability to produce fuel efficient vehicles. Through extensive research and synthesis of publicly available information, Master Product Timing Schedules were generated to portray, chronologically, current and future product changes and technological advances for each domestic auto (1975-85), light truck (1975-80) and selected import manufacturers (1975-80). The Schedules show (by make, model, and year): all new vehicle introductions, highlighting downsizing; styling changes; and significant technological advances in the areas of engines, transmissions, fuel metering, emission control and safety. Extensive notes and reference lists are tabulated to assist the researcher in obtaining additional information beyond that identified on the schedules.
