Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Leafeon! Also, I think maybe 5th generation could bring some new Eevee evolutions :)

Flareon is now deadly it could now learn FLARE BLITZ and do an amazingly threatning damage of 270!!! with life orb. it's makes the worst ones between glaceon (glaceon isn't bad it's just that other eeveelutions are better) and espeon (espeon isn't bad either)
duh!!!!!!!!!!! Vaporeon is strongest. Flareon is weakest
I hate how everyone  forgets Sylveon. Which in my case is the most powerful, A fairy type can one shot almost anything with Dazzling Gleam.
A lot of the answers came before Sylveon existed.
sylveon XD

Special sweepers

Jolteon is for more speed and Espeon is for more special attack. Espeon also better as a lead thanks to Magic bounce giving him the ability to reflect stealth-rock and other entry hazards.

Physical sweeper

Leafeon is by far the best even though has slightly above average speed he has awesome attack and defense and far outclasses Flareon who is the weakest eevee evolution.

Wall

Umbreon all the way he has HUGE defense and even HUGER S.def and a GREAT hp stat as well along with a variety of walling moves such as toxic, curse, payback, and moonlight and wish.

Physical tank

there is no real physical tank but Flareon has huge attack and great S.def but he has such an aweful moveset that all you have to work with is fire fang, iron tail, return, and curse. EDIT: Leafeon can also tank physically because of a 130 defense stat and plenty of offensive and support options.

Special tanks

Glaceon and Vaporeon are the way to go Glaceon for better defense and Vaporeon for more hp, Glaceon is best in a hail storm for it raises evaisevness and Vaporeon is a great switch into water attacks thanks to water absorb

This answer needs to be updated for Gen VI.  Flareon gets the powerful move Flare Blitz and Sylveon is introduced, which is a great special tank.
Speed Freak hasn´t been on for like a long long time and if it needs updating someone could just answer with Sylveon and Flareon is still the worst Eeveelotion

It depends on what you're fighting. Assess your enemies weaknesses and then choose. If you're not going after anything in particular, though, I'd go with Jolteon because it has so few weaknesses, and it has awesome Sp. Attack and HUGE Speed, so you can take out almost anything with Thunder (if it hits D:). Also, volt absorb, really useful.

In my opinion, te strongest eevee is Espeon. It has AMAZING SPEED AND AMAZING SPECIAL ATTACK! Plus , AMAZING MOVESETS like mine which is Psychic, Shadow Ball, Swift, and Morning Sun!!

Haha i love all the eevee evolutions.
mehh Umbreon has good stats like it has only three things effective and since it can use moonlight wish payback and more it has better hp  defense sp.def  so umbreon is my BEST choice and i'm not such a fan of espeon cause of it's design it pretty cute though
there all the same espeon is my least favorite due to it's design UMBREON IS BETTER!! it can learn poison and ghost moves ^_^!!!
it is  a lie but true it has a beast moveset
espeon's speed isnt THAT amazing o.o

Well, all I know is that Flareon is the weakest Eeveelution and Leafeon probably is the strongest Eeveelution. Still, a lot of people seem to think Espeon is the strongest Eeveelution. So, Leafeon and Espeon is the strongest (maybe.) But in my opinion, no Eeveelutions are the strongest, they are all the same.

It's 6th gen now so I am going to review all the eeveelutions.

Vaporeon dropped from OU and now shines in UU. Most Vaporeons you will meet are clerics or walls/stallers with moves like Wish, Heal Bell, Toxic, Scald, and Protect.

Jolteon also dropped from OU and is good in UU. All Jolteons you will meet are fast special sweepers with moves like Thunderbolt, Signal Beam, Shadow Ball, Hidden Power, and Substitute.

Flareon has had some buffs(mainly Flare Blots and fairy resist) but is still the worst eeveelution by far. Flareon can be offensive or defensive. Defensive Flareon packs Wish, Protect, Heal Bell, and Lava Plume while offensive Flareon usually has the abillity Guts and packs moves like Flare Blitz, Flame Charge, Facade, Bite, Iron Tail, Superpower, and Protect.

Espeon is still OU and OK. Espeon is always a fast special sweeper with moves like Psychic,, Psyshock, Dazzling Gleam, Shadow Ball, Calm Mind and Yawn. Its main niche is Magic Bounce.

Umbreon is still UU and OK. Umbreon is always an annoying stalling with moves like Toxic, Moonlight, Curse, Payback, and more.

Leafeon is superior to Flareon in that it works but has a very small movepool, which is what holds it back, along with its typing. Most Leafeons are Sword's Dancers with Substitute, Sword's Dance, Leaf Blade, then filler or coverage.

Glaceon is right next to Flareon in terms or performance and is outclassed by Jolteon and Espeon. Just give him 4 attacks and Choice Specs or Life Orb.

Sylveon, the new one, has replaced Vaporeon in OU and here is why: Vaporeon's strongest strategy then was Hydration. It immediately heals Vaporeon's status conditions in rain. A lot of Vaporeons would carry Rest and be on the same team as Politoed but now that the weather has been nerfed, Vaporeon lost its greatest assets. Sylveon came to OU because fairy is excellent typing and he is easier to EV/Super Train. If you wanted a mixed wall, max out HP and Def with a Bold nature. If you want a special wall, max out HP and SDef with a Calm nature. Sylveon is just a better cleric than Vaporeon this gen. Most Sylveons are clerics with moves like Wish, Heal Bell, Toxic, Protect, Moonblast, and Hyper Voice. I mentioned Hyper Voice because it breaks through substitutes and gets boosted by Pixilate.

Now, let us rank them:

Special Sweeper: Espeon/Jolteon

Physical Sweeper: Leafeon

Cleric: Sylveon

Wall/Staller: Umbreon

Runner up(s) to Special Sweeper: Glacieon

Runner up(s) to Physical Sweeper: Flareon

Runner up(s) to Cleric: Vaporeon

Umbreon has no competion.

I hope I helped :)

I also think it is important to know all eeveelutions can baton pass. If you are considering one I think Jolteon, Vaporeon, Sylveon, and maybe Umbreonmeke the best baton passers.

possibly jolteon even though leafeon is very good, so is vaporeon but jolteon has very good stats like in speed. and ill tell you a little about the eeveeloutions. umbreon can yhave a good moveset, but dark types can be a little hard to work with. then espeon.espeon is very good, but remember to all of you saying espeon is fast,... just look at that things speed compared to jolteon.now jolteon is the fastest, which is a good reason.jolteon in old ages takes time to get electric moves but in black/white 2? nah. now vaporeon. so stinking great to bring this eel like thing into Pokemon. although it is one of the best eeveeloution, it possibly isnt the best.flareon? ask me now, flareon doesnt suck, ok? are we clear? yes, were clear. possibly flareon can be a good eeveeloution infact you can teach it fire tms if no one even dang noticed.now glaceon. glaceon can be hard well kinda a bit because uh well glaceon is ice, and it does have 4 weaknesses.now the "big" one. leafeon. oh wow, leafeons the best! seriously? I wont hear any more of that blibber blabber. but since leafeon has so much weaknesses for a grass type? wow. leafeon probably isnt the best.then theres down to one more. eevee. lol we all know, its a normal

                                                                                                                                            type, and its first evolution. and for a dang reason it can evolve into like 7 [about to be 8] eeveeloutions. so possibly, jolteons the best.by the way, these are the top 3. leafeon, vaporeon, and of course, jolteon.

Every Eeveelution has a base stat total of 525. They're all as strong as the others, it's a matter of how you use each one in battle. For example, Flareon's amazing attack and low speed makes it a great option for choice scarfing, as where a Life Orb would be great for a speedy special attacker like Jolteon or Espeon. The bulkier ones, like Vaporeon and Umbreon can really take advantage of leftovers and sitrus berries.

In short, there is no strongest, it's a matter of preference.

I say that's accurate. It's all a matter of opinion. And, clearly, Sylveon's my favorite.

Okay, here's my analyzation of each Eeveelution:
Flareon's best move is Flare Blitz, making him a very weak Pokemon. So it's probably a central attacker.
Vaporeon's HP stat is incredible, but with not the best defense. Hydro Pump can deal major damage, yet only works with a Wide Lens and PP Ups.
Jolteon's speed is incredible. EV trained in Special Attack and Speed/Sp. Def. could help it a lot in competitive gameplay.
Leafeon's an attacker. No question.
Glaceon can do good with Hail, making both of its abilities take effect. Plus its already powerful ice moves with dominate. Blizzard has 100 Accuracy in Hail, too, so it's recommended Glaceon to have Hail with it.
Espeon has great Sp. Attack, so it centrally attacks with Psychic and heals with Morning Sun.
Umbreon's a staller. A major staller. A Toxic/Protect/Wish Umbreon works.
Sylveon is a Special Defender. No question here either.
So: My #1 Eeveelution is Jolteon.

We all know that the Eeveelutions follow a stat distribution of 060-065-065-095-110-130 rule.

Winner = lowest #

Vaporeon=1+3+4+2+3+4=17
Jolteon=3+3+4+2+3+1=16
Flareon=3+1+4+3+2+4=17
Espeon=3+3+4+1+3+2=16
Umbreon=2+3+2+4+1+4=16
Leafeon=3+2+1+4+4+3=17
Glaceon=3+4+2+1+3+4=17
Sylveon=2+3+3+2+1+5=16

So, Jolteon, Espeon, Umbreon, and Sylveon are better than Vaporeon, Flareon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.

I believe that Vaporeon is the best Eevee evolution because of its useful ability (Water Absorb) and annoying movesets you could make using its pretty good movepool. Vaporeon has easy access to quick recovery with its Water Absorb ability and the move Aqua Ring which is basically like Leftovers. It can also learn Wish and Detect (detect for recovering using Aqua Ring or Leftovers) as egg moves. Or, you can take advantage of that and use Flail, which is also an egg move for Vaporeon.

Here's a popular annoying and powerful moveset for Vaporeon (nature and such included):
Vaporeon + Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
Nature: Bold
- Wish (for a lot of HP recovery)
- Scald (for attacking when the opponent is weakened by Toxic or for burning the opponent)
- Protect/Detect (for recovering a bit of HP using its Leftovers)
- Toxic (for crippling others)
You can also look for other movesets, if this one doesn't appeal to you.
