Offering driver-selectable vehicle modes is an exclusive feature of TRIFECTA calibrations, that, prior to TRIFECTA's innovation, only exisited in the most expensive and premium vehicles that GM offers (Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Cadillac CTS, etc). Utilizing a custom operating system, we have brought this premium feature to virtually every vehicle type we offer calibrations for.
TRIFECTA's DSVM II, on the Chevrolet Sonic, is activated by the cruise control system arming switch. When the cruise control system is enabled, the vehicle operates in STOCK mode. When the cruise control system is disabled, the vehicle operates in SPORT mode. Vehicle modes can be switched at any time, as many times as the driver wishes. Cruise control system functionality is completely retained and unaffected by DSVM II.
In SPORT mode, the vehicle responds much more quickly to accelerator input. Automatic transmission shift patterns are optimized for maximum performance and responsiveness. During "everyday" driving manuevers, the vehicle feels very much like it did from the factory, but rolling into the pedal quickly reveals a vehicle that wants to GO. Attentive, but without being "twitchy", power delivery is linear and transmission shifts are purposeful. The vehicle produces maximum TRIFECTA power!
In STOCK mode, the vehicle behaves just like it did from the factory, under all driving conditions!
More than PAL (previous Sonic calibration) + STOCK, this is a whole new calibration
We announced several months back that our calibration engineering team was working on the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic Turbo. Just like any other large scale software project, GM typically uses a common "code base" within an ECU type, and this "code base" is generally updated every model year. After studying the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic ECU code in our engineering center, we discovered some improvements in calibration constructs that had not existed in previous model years, which we determined could be "back ported" to previous model years to offer an exceptionally improved driving experience not possible prior to the 2016 "code base".
This discovery, combined with feedback on the PAL calibration led to a complete "redo" of the TRIFECTA Sonic calibration. SPORT mode is all new, redesigned from the ground up.
TRIFECTA's DSVM II for the 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic (LUV) is available immediately and is incorporated into all new product orders. Exisiting TRIFECTA customers may request and receive the DSVM II calibration update at absolutely no charge by submitting a request at the following link (be sure to include your vehicle's VIN):
