from a report in the "Car Connection":

"Chrysler Group said it will offer multi-displacement system (MDS) to its pickup trucks for the 2006 model year. Chrysler was the first to offer the fuel-saving technology in passenger cars: the HEMI-powered 2005 Chrysler 300C and Dodge Magnum R/T. Chrysler was also the first to offer cylinder deactivation in an SUV with the intro of the 2005 HEMI-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee. According to Chrysler, MDS in HEMI-equipped Durangos, 300Cs, Magnums, Cherokees and Rams sold in the 2006 and 2007 model years will save 63 million gallons of gas because of the improved gas mileage on the numbers of vehicles they figure to sell. Likewise, CO2 emissions on those vehicles will be reduced by 590,000 tons by Chrysler estimates. MDS technology delivers an improvement of 20 percent to vehicles, according to Chrysler."

I am very curious what kind of MPG improvement the Rams will see on the highway with MDS........ I guess we'll have to wait until August or September to get the EPA estimates.
