General Motor’s new Dept. 180 series has a unique method of videography to highlight the extreme and unconventional methods that Chevrolet engineers use to test the quality of their vehicles. From filling up an entire car with ping pong balls to driving it through a grit trough, from smoking-out the Chevy Equinox to creating an indoor blizzard, these eccentric methods get the job done.
The series will be taking a break for the summer and as much as we hate to admit it – we’re going to kind of miss it.
Check out the highlights from this season in the Season Finale video posted after the jump.
