By Auto News Log • December 11th, 2010

In a recent announcement, BMW was recognized on Ward’s prestigious list of the 10 Best Engines for 2011, marking their fifth win in a row. This year, the new 3.0L, N55 Turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine and the 1.6L, Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine were frontrunners in a competition designed to recognize powertrains that set benchmarks based on power, technology, fuel economy, noise, and vibration.

The N55, found in the BMW 335i, is the first to combine turbocharging and high-pressure direct injection with BMW’s Valvetronic throttleless intact system. “For drivability and smoothness, the N55 is unparalleled,” said Ward’s Editor, Tom Murphy.
