    Uh, compared to whom? Maybe Nissan? Toyota's V6 engines are as good as any of the other major players.

    Now if we were discussing STRAIGHT sixes...that'd be a different story. Especially that legendery Jeep 4.0L.

    The 4.0L v6 is a good engine, except the occasional bad ones. I know someone with over 200,000 miles on one. I have a picture when it was at 197,000 though

    well that's what I mean. They're v6s have been the red headed step children in the toyota fleet. Their inlines are venerable. Their V engines are not anything special. They do save on hood room though.

    they're known for i4s and i6s. great ones. No v engines of note in their history YET.
    They may end up standing out, but so far, not interesting. Especially when compared to MANY great v6s... many many other great v6s.

    I thought the older supra engines had some problems with head gaskets?

    welcome:)

    so what is a good V6?

    And by good I mean reliable, and decent power.

    Well you have to start with the buick fireball. THen just to touch some high points. The new mustang and camaro v6s supposedly are great in both areas. The old GM 4.6 or 4.3? can't remember. The s-10 engine. The honda J engine. Like, anything vortec. Good reliability and horsepower and MPG, well the one's I've experienced its a big family of engines. The chrysler pentastar. Whatever engine it was they put in the base model f150 back in the late 90s.

    THe 1gr is a good enough engine. Not ground breaking yet. Don't get that I'm dissing it. I don't think you can say its exceptional at anything and doesn't have any new technology or anything in it. It may end up being a great engine by comparison over time though. Toyota does/did that.

    My 2003 - Nice truck, was lacking room, stopping power when towing my bass boat wasn't good. Great resale value -Owned it a year and a half & got $2500 more than I owed.

    My 2005 - Has plenty of room, no issues with stopping power while towing my bass boat, 170,600 miles & still runs like the day I got it.

    Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, eh?
    Vehicle:
    2010 Base 4x2, 2.7L, 5 speed manual
    .
    The GM 4.3 V-6 Vortec has had historic issues with the intake manifold gasket seal (?) towards the back of the motor springing a leak and pissing coolant down the back of the motor - I had to have my GMC Safari's replaced x2 in 40k km's - a relative's Jimmy of the same year had his done x3.

    Pain in the arse fix with the motor buried in the Safari and the dog-house in the way.
