Chevy was recently recognized by Wards Auto for exceptional engineering and design, specifically its engines. Two Chevy engines, the 3.6-liter V6 and Voltec Propulsion System, were named to the top of Ward’s 10 Best Engines list.
Wards Auto considered a total of 31 engines, many of which are used in multiple models, from 11 brands worldwide. Looking at efficiency, technology, refinement, and precision, Wards determined that Chevy had two of the best engines in the world. According to Chevy, the Camaro and Volt powertrains were specifically recognized.
“This recognition is a win for our customers with improved efficiency and performance and a credit to our engineering teams and supplier partners,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president, Global Powertrain. “It isn’t enough to just be good. Many of our competitors are good. At GM, we are committed to consistently delivering great propulsion systems.”
The 3.6-liter V6 found in the Camaro was recognized for its impressive power and its spine-tingling sound, as well as its incredible performance. Designed to have an output comparable to a normal V8, the Camaro’s engine will save you gas without sacrificing power. The Voltec is even more impressive, with the ability to go 420 miles before regular charging. It can go 53 miles on pure electricity, and the gas will last more than 1,000 miles.
