The Gen-V engine family delivers greater efficiency, performance, and durability thanks to a combination of advanced technologies, including Direct Injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation), and dual-equal camshaft phasing (Variable Valve Timing) that support an advanced combustion system.

Refinements and new or revised components are used throughout, including a revised cooling system and all-new cylinder heads. The engine is designed to accommodate an engine-driven, high-pressure fuel pump for the direct-injection system.
