U.S. publication Ward's Auto just awarded the 2016 Nissan Maxima a spot in its annual top 10 best engines in the industry for its 3.5-liter V6 engine. Developing 300 horsepower in this year's all-new, completely redesigned Maxima, this engine makes Ward's top 10, a very award-winning position, for the 15th time. In total, Nissan has made the magazine's top 10 17 times.
In order to compile the list, Ward's journalists test each engine over a two-month period. Engines are evaluated for performance, fuel economy, quietness and technology. All engines in new vehicles in a given year are evaluated, as well as engines that made Ward's list in the previous year. This year, there were 31 engines nominated.
"When the 2016 Maxima hit dealerships in May, our team thought its redesigned 3.5L V6 engine would be an important piece of the puzzle," said Pierre Loing, vice president, product planning, Nissan North America, Inc." Being named to Wards magazine's Top 10 Engines list is a tribute to the outstanding design, performance and value of our next-generation flagship sedan, the Nissan Maxima. We thank the entire Wards team for this prestigious recognition."
