Honda’s MPG Revolution: VTEC

The Honda VTEC (Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control) system proves revolutionary, and it reveals why the carmaker creates such fuel-efficient vehicles. Honda has several different types of VTEC engines for both dual- and single-overhead camshaft systems, which control the mixture of air and fuel to ensure greater efficiency. All Honda Pilot trims benefit from an i-VTEC system, which creates both high and low rpm profiles to enhance miles per gallon ratings and torque. You’ll feel the benefits regardless of whether you’re just cruising around St. Clair Shores or driving to the upper peninsula for a camping trip.
