The vehicle may have a fuel economy mode. When engaged, fuel economy mode can improve the vehicle's fuel economy.

Fuel Economy Mode

Pressing the eco button by the shift lever will engage fuel economy mode. When activated, the eco light in the instrument cluster will come on. See Fuel Economy Light on page 5-21. Pressing the button a second time will turn fuel economy mode off.

When fuel economy mode is on:

  • The transmission will upshift sooner, and downshift later.
  • The torque converter will lock- up sooner, and stay on longer.
  • The gas pedal will be less sensitive.
  • The vehicle’s driving performance will be more conservative.
  • The vehicle's computers will more aggressively shut off fuel to the engine under deceleration.
  • The engine idle speed will be lower.
