SEMA Preview: Hyundai experimenting with cylinder deactivation and supercharging
Extra power is nice and all, but we're also very concerned with fuel economy, of course. Fortunately, so is Hyundai, so the RKSport Genesis that's headed to Vegas has also been fitted with cylinder deactivation. That's a feature that isn't yet included on the stock car, but that may soon change. Word from Motive is that it's likely headed to production versions of the Tau V8 engine in short order. Fuel mileage on the 460-horse supercharged mill actually improves to 18 city and 27 highway, matching the figures of the standard V6 engine. Now that's progress.
