Wards 10 best engines 2015

The 2015 Ward's 10 Best Engines are:

127-kW Electric Motor (BMW i3 electric vehicle)
6.2L OHV V-8 (Chevrolet Corvette Stingray)
6.2L Supercharged OHV V-8 (Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat)
1.0L Turbocharged DOHC 3-cyl. (Ford Fiesta)
100-kW Fuel Cell (Hyundai Tucson FCV)
1.5L Turbocharged DOHC 3-cyl. (Mini Cooper)
3.0L Turbodiesel DOHC V-6 (Ram 1500 EcoDiesel)
2.0L Turbocharged DOHC H-4 (Subaru WRX)
1.8L Turbocharged DOHC 4-cyl. (Volkswagen Jetta)
2.0L Turbocharged DOHC 4-cyl. (Volvo S60)


BMW and Chrysler are the only manufacturers with two engines making the list.

I am half surprised by that outcome

Kinda nice to see a few duhmestics up there

Some of those are remodels of existing engine platforms..


and keep in mind that "best engine" has to do with the newness and technology for this year...some of their past winners have turned out to be dogs for reliability.

"To be eligible for the Ward's 10 Best Engines competition, an engine or propulsion system must be all-new or significantly re-engineered and available in the U.S. market with a base price not exceeding $60,000. This year's pool of 37 nominees includes last year's 10 winners and 27 new entries. Eight WardsAuto editors drove the vehicles in October and November in their routine daily commutes around metro Detroit. Editors scored each engine based on power, torque, technology, observed fuel economy, relative competitiveness and noise, vibration and harshness characteristics."

So high dollar stuff gets nixed right away, or else it would all be M5s and rs8s

Yeah dealer price =/= msrp of course, I guess that's a bit of a loophole.

Also you can never tell who sends them checks and free product samples when nobody is looking

YES! That little 3 Cylinder B38 engine! I want that so bad. I dislike the 4pot in the 320/328. It's adequate and torquey, but leaves much to be desired.
