INFINITI VR-series Engine Makes Ward’s 10 Best Engines List – Again!
The New INFINITI 3.0-Liter twin-turbo V6 engine has once again earned a place on Ward’s 10 Best Engines list. This is the second consecutive year that INFINITI’s new engine has been included on Ward’s Best Engine list with the distinction of being only one of two engines to be named two years in a row.
2017 marks the 24th year of Ward’s 10 Best Engines awards with winners being selected from a variety of auto manufacturers. The INFINITI VR-series engine was tested along side new and significantly revised engines as well as those included on the 10 Best list last year.
The INFINITI VR-series 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine is the successor to INFINITI’s VQ engine, which was included in the Ward’s 10 Best Engines list for 14 consecutive years. The new VR-series engine offers remarkable efficiency and an improved driving experience. This new engine engages a series of innovative technologies including direct injection fuel delivery. Lighter aluminum construction and reduced mechanical friction add to the lightening fast response time and overall improved performance.
“The VR-series engine is a key representation of INFINITI’s Empower the Drive ethos, delivering thrilling performance that luxury customers have come to expect from our products,” said Christian Meunier, INFINITI Global Division Vice President. “INFINITI is on track to achieve another record year for both U.S. and global sales, and the exceptional engineering and performance of our engines are vital contributions to that success.”
New INFINITI VR-Series engines are available across a range of newly redesigned INFINITI Q50 AND Q60 models including new RED SPORT models. If you would like to learn more about these award winning engines please contact our INFINITI Dealership serving North Houston or stop by for a test drive.
