Efficiency Drives 2010 Ward’s Best Engines Choices

SOUTHFIELD, MI – Five all-new powertrains win Ward’s 10 Best Engines honors this year, and each one demonstrates the auto industry’s swift movement toward downsized engines to attract consumers who now are making fuel efficiency a top priority.

Throughout October and November, six editors of Ward’s Automotive Group tested 34 vehicles from 13 auto makers in their normal driving cycles in metro Detroit. They scored each engine based on horsepower, torque, refinement, technical relevance and comparative data. Each engine was evaluated because it was all-new, offered significant technology upgrades or was a returning winner from last year.

This year’s winners and the applications tested:

2.0L TFSI Turbocharged DOHC I-4 (Audi A4)

3.0L TFSI Supercharged DOHC V-6 (Audi S4)

3.0L DOHC I-6 Turbodiesel (BMW 335d)

2.5L DOHC I-4 Hybrid (Ford Fusion Hybrid)

3.5L EcoBoost Turbocharged DOHC V-6 (Ford Taurus SHO)

2.4L Ecotec DOHC I-4 (Chevrolet Equinox)

4.6L Tau DOHC V-8 (Hyundai Genesis)

2.5L Turbocharged DOHC H-4 (Subaru Legacy 2.5GT)

1.8L DOHC I-4 Hybrid (Toyota Prius)

2.0L SOHC I-4 Turbodiesel (Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI)
