Turbocharging has downsized the best engines of today

For the first time in 23 years there is no V8 engine on the list of Ward’s Auto’s 10 best engines, writes Ward’s auto; http://wardsauto.com/2017/seven-turbos-three-hybrids-share-wards-10-best-engines-honors.

Due to the progress of turbocharging technology, many 6 cylinder engines create enough horsepower and torque to substitute the 8 cylinder engines, writes Ward’s auto, which have slowly decreased in the past years. The same trend can be seen from 6 to 4 cylinder engines, and 4 cylinder engines are also dominating the market as well as Ward’s list of best engines. In fact, besides from 2 hybrid engines on the list, all other 8 best awarded engines are turbocharged, including 1 hybrid.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. expect this trend to only continue further in the coming future, where more hybrid engines also will become turbocharged.
