The Ward’s Auto “10 Best Engines” list tends to celebrate traditional engines each year, listing the most innovative, powerful engines that have been created for the past year’s line-up. However, this year there seems to be a different trend.
This year, Ward’s stretched the definition of engine by adding three hybrid models to their list, honoring the powertrains within: the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, and the 2016 Toyota Prius.
Of these three, the 2016 Chevy Volt is by far the most impressive, with the ability to run on electricity alone when charged. In fact, the current Chevy Volt can travel up to 53 miles on pure electricity. That completely unheard of in the electric market!
It’s worth noting that by including these three models on their list, Ward’s is truly recognizing the power of hybrid powertrains. They may not be traditional engines, but they can still be remarkably powerful. This may also show that perhaps hybrid engines are becoming increasingly popular.
