Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®)

Variable Cylinder Managementâ„¢ (VCM®) is programmed to run on three, four or six cylinders, based on the power requirement. Backed by the intelligence of i-VTEC® technology, VCM quickly and seamlessly activates or deactivates two or three cylinders. So you get the best of both worlds: V-6 power when accelerating or climbing, and the efficiency of a smaller engine while cruising.
