New en­gine for Land Rover

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - NEWS -

At last, Land Rover is back to pro­duc­ing their own en­gines since 2007. Land Rover is re­plac­ing the Ford de­rived mo­tors in 2016 with Jaguar Land Rover’s new In­ge­nium en­gine line that can also be found in the Jaguar XE and XF. The new two-litre four-cylin­der will re­place the older Ford/Volvo 2.2L en­gine in ei­ther a 110Kw or 133Kw de­riv­a­tive. Engi­neers at JLR’s Whit­ley and Gay­don de­vel­op­ment fa­cil­i­ties based the new en­gine on strong, but com­pact, alu­minium blocks for both the diesel and petrol ver­sions. The range con­sists of mod­u­lar four-cylin­der tur­bocharged en­gines with a two-litre ca­pac­ity, built around in­di­vid­ual 500cc cylin­ders that can be con­fig­ured into three, four, five or six cylin­ders. JLR claims that the new 2.0L diesel is the most ef­fi­cient yet. Imag­ine driv­ing a full-size SUV with a 4.9 L/100km fuel econ­omy and emis­sions of 129g/km while able to drive a top speed of over 185km/h.
