Jaguar Land Rover expands its Ingenium engine family

New 6-cylinder petrol engine

Jaguar Land Rover is expanding its Ingenium engine family with a new 6-cylinder petrol engine designed and engineered in-house, and manufactured at its £1 billion Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) in Wolverhampton, UK.

The 3.0-litre straight 6-cylinder petrol engine, which will debut on the Range Rover Sport, is available in 360 PS and 400 PS versions with a torque capable of up to 495 and 550 Nm, is more responsive and better balanced than the outgoing V6 petrol.

It features a unique combination of an electric supercharger to deliver immediate response supported by a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift, which boosts power and help the engine to breathe with maximum efficiency.

These performance-boosting technologies, combined with Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology, optimises performance, fuel economy and reduces emissions. The MHEV 48V system uses a small integrated electric motor to harvest energy lost during deceleration, and then intelligently redeploys it to assist the engine to maximise efficiency.

The new Ingenium engine has been designed and developed in-house and will be manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s £1 billion EMC in Wolverhampton, alongside the current 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.
