New engine for Land Rover
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.
