Advanced Technologies

Our members are engaged in research and development of a full range of advanced technologies for vehicles. Continuing to develop the most fuel-efficient internal combustion engines is a top near-term priority. These technologies include the use of turbochargers with down-sized engines, cylinder deactivation during cruise modes, start-stop starter/generator systems to avoid idling, gasoline direct injection to more precisely meter fuel, and more efficient transmissions.
