2021 chrysler pacifica for sale in calgary abA continuous variable transmission (CVT) is different from standard automatic and manual units, which have a fixed number of gears. Instead, it uses a pulley-like system connected to flexible composite belts. 

What are the benefits of this type of setup?

Since there is no shifting with a CVT, a vehicle can technically have an unlimited number of gears. The engine can always operate near peak efficiency because it can get the best possible ratio at any speed. Also, the system has fewer components, so it is much lighter than a standard transmission. This can lead to lower gas usage. 

When it comes to performance, a CVT offers smoother operation and steadier acceleration with no pauses for gear changes. At the same time, the components are more challenging to repair, and they do not work on autos that have powerful engines. Some hybrid vehicles, such as the Chrysler Pacifica, have an electromagnetic continuous variable transmission (EVT).
