Cars With the Best Engines

December 19, 2013

Many car shoppers end up purchasing a vehicle without really thinking about the engine variations. The engine is the heart of a vehicle, and will affect everything from acceleration, smoothness of ride, and most importantly - your gas mileage.

Forbes understands the importance of a vehicle's engine, and recently released a list of what they consider the top 10 best new car engines for 2014. The list includes engines that Forbes says offer some of the latest technologies for performance and fuel efficiency.

Vehicles on the list include the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which sports a 3.0L turbodiesel DOHC V-6, the Fiat 500e and its 83-kW electric motor, and the Chevy Corvette Stingray and its 6.2L OHV V-8.

If you're considering one of these vehicles, make sure to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deal possible. And be sure to check out TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to compare real prices where you live.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
