Jaguar Land Rover adds 3.0-liter V6 to Velar engine line-up


Land Rover has broadened its Range Rover Velar engine line-up a new V6 powertrain. The

The 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine option promises 275ps and 625Nm of torque. Badged the D275, Land Rover has claimed that the unit is capable of producing up to 42.8mpg, with CO₂ emissions of 175g/km.

Finbar McFall, global product marketing director at Jaguar Land Rover, said, “We’ve given Range Rover Velar customers more choice with the addition of a new diesel engine option, even more scope for personalization and the latest safety technology. Creating the perfect Range Rover Velar is now easier than ever.”

Additionally, the Velar’s two petrol engine options have also been equipped with particulate filters. The efficient, close-coupled filters are integrated into the aftertreatment system and trap ultrafine particles as the exhaust gas passes through them.

Under normal driving conditions, the trapped particles are oxidized into CO₂ and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator.

The OEM has also introduced a new larger 82-liter fuel tank fitted to a number of petrol models, up from 63 liters, with the upgrade promising greater range. The P250 and P300 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium engine models will be first to benefit from the increase in tank capacity.
