Variable Cylinder Management

V-6 cylinder block with red cylinders on one bank, blue on the other.
VCM® improves highway fuel efficiency by automatically changing the V-6 engine to run on six or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions. When high output is required, the engine runs on full V-6 power, but at steady cruising the engine switches to three cylinders.

3.5-liter V-6
