Cadillac Escalade: Active Fuel Management® - Starting and Operating - Driving and Operating - Cadillac Escalade Owner's ManualCadillac Escalade: Active Fuel Management®

Vehicles with V8 engines may have Active Fuel Management™. This system allows the engine to operate on either all or half of its cylinders, depending on the driving conditions. When less power is required, such as cruising at a constant vehicle speed, the system will operate in the half cylinder mode, allowing the vehicle to achieve better fuel economy. When greater power demands are required, such as accelerating from a stop, passing, or merging onto a freeway, the system will maintain full-cylinder operation.

If the vehicle has an Active Fuel Management™ indicator, see Driver Information Center (DIC)   for more information on using this display.
