Here are some details from the fuel-efficient 2013 Honda Crosstour’s powertrain. The new Earth Dreams™ 3.5-liter, 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 engine utilizes Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) to maximize efficiency, allowing the engine to run on 3 or 6 cylinders, depending on engine load and speed. The maximum power output climbs to 277 HP at 6200 rpm. The peak torque output has also increased at 34.9 kg-m at 4900 rpm. New steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters now come included with the Honda Crosstour V-6’s 6-speed automatic transmission.
