Chevy Engines Win Prestigious Awards


2014 Chevy Models on Ward’s 10 Best Engine List

At Chevy Exchange, we are aware that the 2014 Chevy models are among the top performing vehicles on the market, but there’s nothing that we love more than seeing those models earning awards, as it only helps to reiterate the fact that Chevy is producing quality models. Just recently, not one, but two of the automaker’s offerings earned spots on the prestigious Ward’s 10 Best Engine list, and if you’re familiar with the Chevy lineup, you can probably guess at least one of the engines that received recognition.

For quite some time we have been spending some time telling you about the engine found under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Cruze Turbo Diesel as it’s one of the most talked about powertrains currently on the market. For that reason, it’s really no surprise that the diesel-burning 2.0-liter was added to Ward’s list. The Turbo Diesel engine is able to return fuel economy ratings of 46 mpg on the highway, which allows it to travel up to 717 miles on a single tank. The numbers are unmatched by any other vehicle in the class.

There’s no doubt that the diesel engine found in the 2014 Chevy Cruze is impressive, but it’s not the only engine to find its way onto the 10 Best Engine list. The powertrain found in the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray was also recognized. The eight-cylinder engine, which displaces 6.2 liters, boasts an impressive output of 455 horsepower, but much like the Cruze, the engine offers some astounding economy. On a single gallon of gas, the V8 is able to propel the Stingray 29 miles on the highway. That’s pretty good for a sports car.

As we said, here at Chevy Exchange, we deal with these vehicles on a daily basis, and are aware of what they’re capable of, but the mention of these 2014 Chevy models on Ward’s 10 Best Engine List is further proof that the automaker continues to raise the bar on innovation and fuel economy year after year. These engines were the only two recognized, but we expect to see even more added to the list in the future.
