Schaeffler, a global automotive manufacturer of high-precision products and systems for engines, transmissions and chassis applications, is proud to supply components, systems and technologies to nine of the 10 engines recognized by Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2013.

“We’re proud to support the winning engines with the powertrain components and technologies that help create safe, affordable and environmentally conscious vehicles,” said Jeff Hemphill , chief technical officer, Schaeffler North America. “We’re consistently working to offer products that meet the needs of our customers today, while also developing the innovations required to meet their needs for the future. As engines evolve to satisfy upcoming regulations, so do our optimization efforts.”

In partnership with its customers, Schaeffler has developed products and technologies to both optimize internal combustion engines through innovative fluid management, as well as address the requirements of the next generation of electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. The 2013 winners featuring Schaeffler components are:

* 3.0L TFSI Supercharged DOHC V-6 (Audi S5)
* 2.0L N20 Turbocharged DOHC I-4 (BMW 328i)
* 3.0L N55 Turbocharged DOHC I-6 (BMW 135is coupe)

Now in its 19th year, the Ward’s 10 Best Engines competition pits the latest engines available in the U.S. market against the returning winners from the previous year. According to Ward’s, this year’s winners stand as a tribute to internal combustion, as automakers wrestle with fuel-economy standards requiring a growing number of zero-emissions electric vehicles.

To be eligible, an engine must be available in a production vehicle on sale within the first quarter of 2013 and with a base price of less than $55,000. Ten WardsAuto editors chose the winners by evaluating 40 new or significantly upgraded engines in their routine daily commutes around metro Detroit between October and early December. The awards will be presented at a Jan. 16 ceremony in Detroit during the North American International Auto Show.
