Ward’s 10 Best Engines, The only American award program for engines, revealed this year’s winners. And as you expect the list is full of eco-friendly four cylinders, turbodiesels and hybrids (LAME!) instead of big rumbling V8s and roaring V12s! What’s worse is that there is no AMG engine in the list.To be eligible for the competition, each engine must be available in a regular-production U.S.-specification model on sale no later than first-quarter 2010, in a vehicle priced no more than $54,000, a price cap indexed to the average cost of a new vehicle.

2010 top ten engines are as follows:

  • 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)

The highlights of this year’s list are the brilliant hybrid engine of Ford Fusion and BMW’s turbodiesel six-cylinder. But as far as power is concerned the best of the lot is Hyundai’s Tau DOHC V-8 which poweres the amazing Genesis luxury salon.
