Wards 10 Best Engines testing is a 2-month project for WardsAuto editors, taking October and November. From hyper-miling in the Toyota Prius to towing 9,000 lbs. in the Nissan Titan XD, editors experienced all 31 nominees in multiple duty cycles.
Now in its 22nd year, the Wards 10 Best Engines competition recognizes outstanding engines and electrified propulsion systems, as well as the technology and engineering behind them. Winners were announced Thursday.
