2011 Honda Pilot’s VCM improves fuel economy, but what is it?

April 12th, 2010 by

VCM stands for Vehicle Cylinder Management and works on the principle that a vehicle only requires a fraction of its power output at cruising speeds. The system electronically deactivates cylinders to reduce fuel consumption. The VCM engine is able to run on 3, 4 or 6 cylinders based on the power requirement. So you get the best of both worlds: V-6 power when accelerating or climbing, as well as the efficiency of a smaller engine when cruising.
