Editors on the panel of judges called it the new benchmark for high-output 4-cyl engines and praised it for delivering the “refined output, power and composure of a high-feature 6-cylinder engine”. This is the second time Volvo has won the recognition from WardsAuto for its efficient, performance delivering, Drive-E engine family.
 


“Achieving an effective level of balance across comfort, efficiency and power has been the ultimate goal for our creation of the Drive-E engine family across our global model range,” said Michael Fleiss, Vice President Powertrain at Volvo Car Group. “The T6 Drive-E uses of both supercharging and turbocharging, delivering a lively, compelling result. We are honored to once again receive recognition for our engines from WardsAuto as we continue to pioneer new, effective technologies for our vehicles and customers.”

 

WardsAuto editors selected the winning engines from 31 nominees following a long appraisal process based on every day driving. Editors score each engine based on horsepower, torque, comparative specs, noise attenuation, fuel economy and the application of new technology.
 

 

The winning T6 Drive-E engine can be found in the XC90 SUV and recently announced S90 luxury sedan. The T6 engine also functions as the internal combustion base for the class-leading T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid.

 

Volvo Cars has also earned the 2015 Engine of the Year Award from Digital Trends for T6 Drive-E powertrain

 

The accolades for Volvo Cars’ Drive-E powertrains continue to arrive, with the T6 Drive-E earning the coveted Engine of the Year designation from Digital Trends, a leading consumer technology publisher based in the United States.
 

 

“Achieving an effective level of balance across comfort, efficiency and power has been the ultimate goal for our creation of the Drive-E family across our global model range,” said Michael Fleiss, Vice President, Powertrain at Volvo Car Group. “The T6 Drive-E’s use of both supercharging and turbocharging, which is also being utilized in the new XC90, delivers a lively, compelling result. We are honored to receive this latest recognition as we continue to pioneer new, effective technologies for our vehicles and customers.”
 

 

The “Car of the Year” awards highlight those technologies and brands that the editorial team at Digital Trends feels best deliver significance and impact to their respective industries. Judging for 2015 Engine of the Year award included dozens of in-car reviews, test analysis, and debates, with the T6 Drive-E making the final round along with the Bentley W12 and the Dodge HEMI Hellcat.

 

“After a battery of tests, lengthy discussions, and an inspection of what values we hold dear, Volvo’s T6 Drive-E comes across as a gift to the future of motoring,” said Nick Jaynes, Automotive Editor, Digital Trends. “Volvo should be applauded for the design of its Drive-E engine family, and especially the T6 with its six-cylinder levels of horsepower and emissions and fuel economy of something smaller.”
 

 

The T6 Drive-E is currently available in the S60 and XC60 in the US, producing 302 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, and will also be available on the all-new XC90.
