On the center dash info screens, mileage pages, sometimes I see a V6 to left of the screen then sometimes I see V4. What is this?

this is ecotec.
When in normal driving conditions, engine runs on 4 cylinders. when you accelerate, switches to the full V6. For fuel economy.
This has been around with GM for years, surprised your asking that question, almost think you were trolling for a sec. lol.

However, my 2019 RS model, does not have V4/6 in the info screens. Not 100% if the RS is ecotec or not.

Same with the V8 trucks, runs on V4 and when needs, switches to V8.

Well I learned something new. I always though it was odd changing from V4 to V6, I never made the connection of Eco. thought it had something to do with a software version. Thanks for the info.

The RS has the V6/4 on the instant economy screen. Seems to only switch back and forth once the engine is up to operating temperature.

I have a 2019 Blazer Premier AWD and I tried to see this on the DIC displaying instant Economy and it wasn't there. Have had 2 software updates since I got the vehicle in SEPT 2019. Got other issues though

I have the v4/v6 indicator on my 2019 3LT. It's on 4 different screens - Trip 1 and Trip 2, Fuel Information and Fuel Economy. It does go away when the auto-stop kicks in. Here are some photos for those who haven't seen it.

I have 2019 Blazer RS and my dash is like Edward's too. I haven't seen anything in the book or the dash saying it does the V6/4.

I'm pretty sure the v6 is identical throughout the lineup. I'm guessing it was an oversight by the programmers that designed the upgraded gauge cluster.

Not necessarily. As long as the engine is running, I see the cylinder notification. It only disappears when Autostop kicks in or I shut down the vehicle.
