Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. 3L DOHC V-6 It'* becoming a habit, this business of telling readers that Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.'* "VQ" 3L DOHC V-6 has won yet another 10 Best Engines Award. Securing a place on this year'* list ties Nissan with BMW as the only manufacturer to place the same engine for six consecutive years.
How else to describe the VQ but pre-eminent? The inherent excellence of this design absolutely stunned us - and many of Nissan'* competitors - when launched for the '95 model year, and the same basic engine today still stands out from a growing cadre of sophisticated V-6 engines.
The VQ'* uncanny refinement and lack of vibration always seemed practically supernatural; it'* unrivaled noise, vibration and harshness characteristics are a large contributor to the VQ V-6'* insouciant, exuberant power delivery.
Because of its "attitude," the VQ'* 190 hp always satisfied, largely because it really felt like 220 hp.
Thanks to a host of upgrades for model-year 2000, the VQ really does make 220 hp. Well, 222 hp to be precise. This is icing on the cake, because the former 190-hp VQ already was the standard by which all V-6 engines, regardless of price, should be judged.
Nissan'* VQ 3L V-6 is a marvel of intelligent design and meticulous attention to detail - but its cat-quick throttle response and unmatched smootness also mean it'* a genuine delight to drive. Best of all, Nissan delivers what may be the best V-6 engine ever - yes, we said ever - in cars that are priced for normal mortals
