  • Cadillac High Technology engine


    The Cadillac High Technology Engine was a V8 engine produced by the Cadillac division of General Motors from 1982 to 1995. While the High Technology engine was being developed, due to higher Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards being phased in by the United States government, Cadillac introduced a variant of their traditional V8 engine with the first usage of cylinder deactivation for 1981 as a stopgap measure to increase the fuel economy of their lineup. However, the V8-6-4 engine would experience a litany of unsolvable problems in drivability and reliability mostly due to the primitive state of engine control technologies at the time. Cadillac was then forced to rush development and production of the High Technology engine for a 1982 introduction in their current rear-wheel drive models. This would be the last engine family exclusive to the Cadillac division because its successor, the Northstar, would go on to share its architecture with the Oldsmobile Aurora in 1994 and later with flagship Pontiac and Buick models, such as the Pontiac Bonneville and Buick Lucerne.
