The Heart and Soul: Volvo's Award-Winning T6 Engine


The annual list of the 10 best engines has been published by Wards Auto, and one of the engines making the list this year is Volvo’s powerful and efficient T6 engine. The T6 can be found under the hood of the 2011 Volvo S60 as well as several other popular Volvos.
Volvo's hot new S60 sport sedan continues to impress the pundits with the announcement of its powerful T6 engine being lauded as one of Ward's 10 Best Engines for 2011. With a blistering 300 horsepower, 325 lb.-ft. of torque at a low 2,100 rpm and combined fuel economy of 21 mpg, it's easy to see why.This year marks a first for Volvo to win the annual award bestowed by the editors of Ward's. In all, 38 vehicles with new or significantly improved engines were tested and evaluated. "Volvo clearly benchmarked BMW in developing the supremely smooth T6 engine, based on its delicious mid-range power band and paucity of turbo lag," noted Tom Murphy, Executive Editor of Ward's AutoWorld in his December 7 article highlighting the awards. "This engine is perfectly suited for the all-new S60 and powers it into contention against bigger, better-established luxury entries."Aside from the S60 sport sedan, the turbocharged T6 engine is also available in the 2011 S80, XC60 and XC70."The S60's T6 engine is simply the best engine Volvo's ever produced," noted Doug Speck, President and CEO, Volvo Cars of North America, LLC. "It's powerful, smooth, and gets great fuel economy. We're honored that Ward's is recognizing the T6 engine as one of its 10 Best for 2011."
