Cylinder Deactivation.. didn't realize how many cars had it

Was reading this sorta interesting thing on fuel saving tech and didn't realize that a lot of models on the market have cylinder deactivation- the hemis, some of GM's v8s and 6s, and the honda v6 that's in the minivan I think. I'm not too familiar with this technology; is it going to catch on? Could cylinder deactivation work with forced induction?

Cylinder Deactivation dosent hold much value in my book. I believe the Dodge Durango HEMI has it and it still pulls a whopping 13mpg.

Yeah, the new accord has it. Honda names their cylinder deactivation VCM which stands for Variable Cylinder Management. This is only available on the V-6 in the Sedan ONLY. The coupe' gets the traditional V-6 with no VCM. It does have 278hp if I remember. Overall this technology is amazing. Honda is only one to have truly made this work.

GM, Chrysler and Honda have all used this on several models since at least 2006. But the application that is really going to be interesting is the new NSX.

Don't know much about american companies. I was offered a job at a Honda Dealership and said no. Currently trying to hop on the BMW wagon!
