FOR EIGHTH YEAR RUNNING, BMW ON WARD'S "10 BEST ENGINES" LISTIn the world of automotive manufacturers, being named to the annual Ward's "10 Best Engines" list is a high honor. Ward's gives special recognition to power-trains that set benchmarks based on power, technology, fuel economy, noise, and vibration.
This year, BMW's current 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo made the list - the eighth year in a row that a BMW engine has been awarded. Code-named "N55," this is the first engine to combine turbocharging and high-pressure direct injection with BMW's Valvetronic throttle-less intake system.
Said Tom Murphy, Ward's Editor, "For drivability and smoothness, the N55 is unparalleled."
