Jaguar Land Rover Ingenium Engine
Ingenium - the new family of premium diesel and petrol engines - designed, engineered and manufactured by Jaguar Land Rover, delivers class-leading levels of torque, horsepower and refinement, while reducing emissions and fuel consumption.
Jaguar Land Rover recently revealed more of the technical details of these new lightweight, compact, low-emission, modular engines as it showcased some of the company’s future technologies.
Jaguar Land Rover has developed its own new family of advanced technology, low-friction, high-performance petrol and diesel engines to meet growing customer demand for lower fuel consumption and cost of ownership, without comprising performance and driver experience.
Ingenium’s design brief presented Jaguar Land Rover’s engineers with a tough and complex challenge. Its new engine family would need to be configurable and flexible to enable seamless installation in a range of new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles; be scalable up and down to create smaller or larger displacement variants in the future; be able to accommodate a range of powertrain layouts including rear, all and four-wheel drive; be engineered to support manual and automatic transmissions as well as electrified hybrid drive systems; and be easily accepting of new advances in engine technologies as they become available.
Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart, Jaguar Land Rover Group Engineering Director, commented, “Customers around the world are increasingly demanding cleaner-running, more efficient vehicles that maintain or even enhance the performance attributes expected of a rugged all-terrain vehicle or a high performance car. Our Ingenium engines deliver this to a new level.” .
“Engineering and manufacturing our own engines improves our ability to react to changes in demand and improves our ability to react to changes in legislation and competitive technologies in the future,” added Dr. Ziebart. “We believe that with the range of technologies we are investing in, Jaguar Land Rover can absolutely satisfy the often conflicting requirements of delivering engaging, high-performance luxury vehicles that reduce our carbon footprint in the long-term.”
