The 2017MY Range Rover Sport will debut the company’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine, manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s own engine plant in Wolverhampton. Already available on both Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque models, Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover’s latest engine designed for performance, refinement and efficiency.
The 2017 Model Year Range Rover Sport is the first full-sized Land Rover SUV to feature a four-cylinder diesel engine. The 2.0-litre SD4 Ingenium produces 240HP and 500Nm of torque, and is capable of returning 45.6mpg on the EU combined cycle with emissions of 164g/km (manufacturer’s estimated data).
The introduction of a second turbocharger to the Ingenium engine means that the engine is the first Jaguar Land Rover-built unit to feature series sequential turbo technology.
Vehicles fitted with the new engine will be distinguished by a single twin-exhaust configuration. Other derivatives retain the existing set-up, with a single exhaust on each side of the rear bumper.
Elsewhere in the range, the new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged engine features lightweight all-aluminium construction. Combining supercharging with direct-injection and variable intake, and incorporating exhaust valve timing, JLR statest that the engine delivers ‘exceptional throttle response, linear power delivery and a unique soundtrack’.
