Jaguar Land Rover recently reached an impressive milestone, having produced more than 1.5 million examples of its Ingenium engine at its engine manufacturing center in Wolverhampton.
The all-aluminum Ingenium family of clean, refined and efficient diesel, gasoline and electrified engines are designed to maximize performance while reducing environmental impact and operating costs for motorists.
The latest version of the engine is a six-cylinder diesel engine with mild hybrid technology and powering the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. Jaguar Land Rover will continue to develop the Ingenium engine family on the path to an emissions-free future, ultimately culminating in a concept of a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain solution
“We are experiencing unprecedented demand for cleaner vehicles, so it’s more important than ever to deliver clean and efficient engines without compromising the performance or off-road capability our customers have come to expect,” said Ken Close, Jaguar Land Rover director of the launch of powertrain operations.
The new six-cylinder diesel follows the similar six-cylinder gasoline engine that arrived last year. The two share the same key, cylinder head, cylinder block and crankshaft architecture, as well as engine assembly and testing. Both are put into service at Jaguar Land Rover vehicle manufacturing plants all over the world – the vast majority of which are used at UK-based facilities, most notably in Solihull, where Range Rover models are produced.
