Engine Of The Day: Nissan VGS

With 20 years of service, installation in dozens of different vehicles, and an excellent racing record, the Nissan VG definitely deserves Engine Of The Day honors.

While Nissan continued to build inline sixes well into the current century, the more compact V6 design provided more versatility for front-wheel-drive installations (while allowing for shorter engine compartments in rear-wheel-drive cars) and was built in much larger numbers. Available in displacements of 2.0, 3.0, and 3.3 liters and equipped with single- or double-overhead camshafts, the VG was installed in everything from the Z to the Hardbody truck.
