Land Rover has refreshed the Range Rover’s motor range adding a new gasoline 400-hp inline 6 turbo engine from the Ingenium family. The aging V6s in JLR models will gradually be replaced by these more advanced units.
Jaguar and Land Rover models will receive new Ingenium motors which come to substitute supercharged V motors. The Range Rover Sport was the first to use such.
The 3.0-liter Ingenium engine provides a more instant response by means of a supercharger powered by electricity. In combination with 48V mild hybrid technology the unit supplies torque to decrease workload and in such a way boosts efficiency.
The engine develops about 400hp (395bhp) and 406 lb-ft (550.5Nm) of torque in the Range Rover. It enables the heavy SUV to accelerate from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in 6.1 seconds and speed up to max 140mph (225km/h). The fuel consumption (combined cycle) is 30.4mpg (7.7 l/100km), CO2 emissions – 212g/km.
The Land Rover Range Rover has also acquired new features, such as a smartphone pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new LED headlights adjustments / modes.
Customers can already order the updated model, at least, in the UK, where it costs from £83,655.
