Ward’s Top 10 engines, also known as the world’s top 10 engines, are among the top 10 in the World and are the authors of Ward’s Auto World magazine. After testing near-daily driving conditions on models sold in the U.S., the 10 best-performing engines were selected based on a comprehensive assessment of the horsepower, torque, technical content, and actual performance of each engine. Therefore, it is very authoritative and reference value.
Recently, Ward’s Auto World published the “2020 Ward’s Top 10 Engines and Powersystems” list, as follows (the rankings are not before and after):
As can be seen from the chart above, this year’s top 10 list includes five petrol engines, two gasoline engines with 48V light mixing systems, one diesel engine, one gasoline-powered mixing system, and one pure electric drive system.
Among them, BMW 3.0T, GM 6.2L V8, Honda 2.0L dual motor hybrid, Hyundai 150kW pure electric power system, Nissan 2.0T VC-Turbo and FCA 3.6L V6-48V were re-listed after 2019. Unexpectedly, Volkswagen and Toyota regretthe absence.
According to officials, the base price of the selected models can not exceed US$65,000 (approximately RMB45,54 million), while the items that edit the rating include the power, torque, comparable indicators, NVH suppression level, fuel economy, and the application of new technologies.
Drew Winter, Ward’s senior content director, said: “Not only is the automotive industry continuing to continue to develop innovative internal combustion engines, but their investments in hybrid vehicles, pure electric vehicles, 48V light hybrids and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are also continuing to increase.” “
