BorgWarner’s R2S, two-stage turbocharging technology is to power the new 240hp variant of JLR’s 2.0-liter I4 diesel Ingenium engine. Initially available for the Range Rover Sport and new Land Rover Discovery SUVs, BorgWarner’s advanced turbocharging technology features a water-cooled compressor housing, which contributes to improved low-end torque, overall engine performance and efficiency, as well as lowering emissions.
“Our long-standing expertise in the field of advanced turbocharging technologies for combustion and hybrid propulsion systems enables BorgWarner to supply Jaguar Land Rover the leading R2S turbocharging system to help them achieve fuel efficiency and performance targets for their new 2.0-liter diesel engine,” said Frédéric Lissalde, president and general manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. “We are pleased to expand our successful business relationship with Jaguar Land Rover by working together closely and providing a wide range of our turbocharging technologies for several other engines from Jaguar Land Rover to improve the fun-to-drive experience for their customers even more.”
The R2S turbocharger consists of two series-connected turbochargers to deliver higher boost pressures and smoother power delivery over the entire engine speed range. One turbocharger features the company’s latest variable turbine geometry (VTG) technology for the high-pressure stage combined with a larger B03 water-cooled turbocharger optimized for low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation.
