DaimlerChrysler announced today that the Multi-Displacement System (MDS) technology now available for HEMI-powered versions of the 2006 Durango will improve fuel economy for the SUV by as much as 20%.
MDS cylinder deactivation technology is offered in seven Chrysler Group vehicles and 85 percent of HEMI engines. MDS switches between 8 and 4 cylinder modes in 40 milliseconds.

Across all HEMI models, MDS technology is expected to save 60 million gallons of fuel by 2007.
