Toyota rolling out new efficient engine

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Toyota has developed an efficient gasoline engine using technology fine-tuned with gas-electric hybrids.

The company says the engine will be rolled out in 14 models this year and next year.

The technology is common in hybrids like Toyota's Prius and the Ford Fusion, which switch back and forth between an electric motor and a gas engine for better mileage.

But it's pretty rare for the vehicles to run on gas engines alone.

Toyota's rivals Mazda and Honda have developed similar engines.

Toyota says the new engine will deliver 10-percent better fuel efficiency than comparable current engines.
