Ford, Honda Win Big at Ward's Auto Annual 10 Best Engines


Automotive publication Ward’s has released their annual 10 Best Engines and for 2018, half of the winners are turbocharged. In addition, it sees the return of the fuel cell as well as a V8 along with two first-time winners.

In order to be eligible, the engine must be available in a regular-production vehicle on sale in the US market no later than the first quarter of the year. The engines must also be available in a vehicle with a base price of no more than US$ 60,000 (~ P 2,992,000).

During a two-month testing period, Ward’s editors evaluate each engine according to a number of objective and subjective criteria in everyday driving situation (there’s no instrumented testing done). The selection takes into account power and torque outputs, NVH levels, technical relevance, and basic comparative numbers.

Ward’s also doesn’t categorize engines—they’re meant to compete against all others.

This year, mainstream brands snagged most of the ten spots with Ford and Honda managing to snag two trophies each with Kia finding itself a first-time winner. The only premium brand to enter the list is Jaguar. There’s also just one pick-up truck that snagged a place and that’s from Ford. Interestingly, half of the winners are turbocharged while four are electrified. There is also no German brand in this year’s roster.

The nominees of the 2018 Ward’s Auto 10 Best Engine are (the winners are highlighted in bold):

    4. All current Mazdas are Euro 4, don't spread false information. Most of them are gasoline and I've never seen a car with a gasoline engine that belches smoke.
