BMW N55 ENGINE
FOR FIFTH YEAR RUNNING, BMW ON WARD’S “10 BEST ENGINES” LIST
In the world of automotive manufacturers, being named to the annual Ward’s “10 Best Engines” list is a high honor. Ward’s gives special recognition to powertrains that set benchmarks based on power, technology, fuel economy, noise, and vibration.
This year, BMW’s current 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo made the list – the fifth year in a row that a BMW engine has been awarded. Code-named “N55,” this is the first engine to combine turbocharging and high-pressure direct injection with BMW’s Valvetronic throttle less intake system.
Said Tom Murphy, Ward’s Editor, “For drivability and smoothness, the N55 is unparalleled.”
