The Atkinson cycle V6 engine with VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing with Intelligent Wider Intake) featuring both direct and port fuel injection offers an increase of 42hp over the previous V6. Estimated city/highway/combined fuel economy ratings for the two-wheel drive V6 model with automatic transmission are 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway/21 mpg combined.
