Land Rover Introduces More Ingenium Engines

RR EVQ 18MY 290PS Ingenium Petrol 240517 06

Land Rover will add 3 more Ingenium engines to improve the range of Evoque and Discovery models.

Two new Ingenium petrol engines and a more powerful turbodiesel engine are now available in the Range Rover Evoque, whereas the Land Rover Discovery sport benefits from a more efficient turbopetrol motor. Ingenium engines have been making their way into Jaguar Land Rover products over the last couple years as the brand attempts to improve performance and efficiency in order to keep up with the Germans and Swede.

Turbopetrols

Two new turbopetrols will be introduced. The first has the same outputs as before (177 kW/340 Nm) but is more fuel efficient, claiming 8.0L/100 km in the Disco Sport. This improves on the old engine's 8.3L/100 km claim. In the Evoque, the engine is more efficient claiming 7.3L/100 km.

The second turbopetrol unit is an all-new 213 kW/ 400 Nm unit. It's the most powerful engine ever to be fitted to the Evoque. It turns the SUV into a hot hatchback rivalling robot-racer. Zero to 100 kph takes just 6.3 seconds.

Turbodiesel 

A new, more powerful turbodiesel engine will be added to the Evoque as well. The new unit pushes out 177 kW and 500 Nm of torque. Maximum torque is delivered from just 1 500 rpm.
