There are several examples of V8s and V6s that represent extremely durable and
reliable engines. The GM 350 (rocket) that was used for decades was/is an
extremely durable engine -- especially considering the technology at the time.
The GM 3800 v6 is (in my opinion) one of the best engines ever made -
certainly the best American made engine. While I agree the V configuration is
not as simple as a straight engine, the design has proven to be extremely
durable, reliable, and as it was improved and updated it became a world class
engine. BUT, I do get your point about straight engines. The Mercedes inline
6, the BMW inline 6, the AMC 4.0 straight six, etc are all fantastic engines.

I dislike v-8s and despise v-6 engines. A v6 is completely
unnecessary. There is no reason for a v6 over a straight 6. They only
add complexity over a simpler, well proven design.
