New Ingenium Engines Will Enhance The Performance Of Discovery Sport And Range Rover Evouque

In 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evouque will have four-cylinder petrol Ingenium engines 240PS and 290PS and diesel240PS, which will be also available for both models. It is the first time when Ingenium will be installed into Land Rover cars.

The novelty of new engines is about the twin-scroll turbocharger, direct fuel injection system and integrated exhaust manifolds. For Discovery Sport as well as Evoque, engine will be paired with standardly proposed 9-speed automatic transmission.

As for the petrol edition, a new feature that was added to the engine enables regulation of intake valves, which, in turn, affects airflow control in combustion chambers and improves the torque. As a result, it ensures more efficient fuel consumption and less emission. Diesel engines feature advanced gas recirculation system and selective catalytic reduction system. Performance of both variations is aimed at bigger efficiency with the less level of emission as soon as new engines defined to be the core element in Land Rover’s long-term emission reduction strategy.

New engines are being produced at the Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Center, located in UK, Wolverhampton. Whether vehicles with Ingenium “heart” will meet market’s demand we will see. Meanwhile managers of Jaguar Land Rover are very enthusiastic.

Ron Lee, Group Chief Powertrain Engineer, mentioned: “A simple configuration and flexible architecture are the core principles that underline Ingenium family. We had a rare opportunity to start development of the project from scratch. We were not limited to preceding requirements, which oblige engineers to find compromises. We did not have existing equipment, which could determine design parameters at the stage of technical assignment. There was no prototype to work on, and there were no old factories requiring modernization”.

Those customers who will choose more powerful 290PS engine for any of two models, Discovery Sport or Range Rover Evoque, will receive Dynamic body kit as complementary. You can learn more about Range Rover design solutions in our previous post.
