I6=Inline (Single row of cylinders. They are also upright).
V6=6 opposing cylinders (3 on one side,3 on the other in a v shape as look at the front of the engine).
I have heard that Inline engines wear better because the cylinders are upright and there is less wear and tear.
V6 cylinders are on there side (kinda) and they would suffer a bit from the fact that they are rubbing more on one side because of, well, gravity I guess. Don't know how true that is. But mechanics that I know say the Inline is the way to go.
*edit* Of course in the time it takes my slow A$$ to type someone else anwers the question
