    2014 Ward's 10 Best Engines

    This engine program establishes definitively that old-school cam-in-block configurations relying
    on pushrods can deliver stunning performance and cost advantages in a powertrain world dominated by newer overhead-cam architectures.


    Nine years ago, when he was group vice president of global powertrain at General Motors, Tom Stephens was so disappointed the Chevrolet Corvette small-block V-8 had been passed over for the Ward’s 10 Best Engines list that he dressed down a WardsAuto editor while seated next to him on a plane.

    It was a very long flight.

    This year is different, as GM Powertrain left no stone unturned in designing, modeling, testing, validating and building a world-class small-block V-8 that proudly carries forward a 58-year legacy by leveraging the latest technologies while embracing key familial characteristics, namely, pushrods, a 90-degree layout and surprisingly compact packaging.

    It’s ironic the fifth-generation LT1 6.2L small-block that turns the all-new ’14 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray into an absolute raging bull cruised so casually this year to a Ward’s 10 Best Engines win.
