Discovery Sport And Evoque Score Ingenium Petrol Power For 2018

Land Rover will revitalise its Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque range in Australia this year with a new in-house 'Ingenium' petrol engine line-up and a high-performance diesel variant.

The upgrades, earmarked for the fourth quarter, mark the entrance to the Australian market of Jaguar Land Rover’s in-house petrol engine series to replace the four-cylinder Ford engines.

The petrol engines, which are expected to appear later in Jaguar models, arrive in two output levels of 177kW/340Nm – the same as the outgoing Ford engine – and 213kW/400Nm though JLR claims improved fuel economy.

JLR said the focus in designing the new petrol engine has been on reducing emissions. 

Engine technology includes an integrated exhaust manifold, 2000-bar direct-injection fuel system and twin-scroll turbocharger (with ball bearings in the 213kW version), and electro-hydraulic control of the inlet valves for variable valve lift.

JLR claims the valve-lift control reduces pressure build-up and controls airflow in the combustion chambers, increases engine flexibility, improves power and torque to realise improved fuel efficiency and a reduction in emissions.

In the Evoque – which has recently passed the 600,000 unit production milestone since its 2011 launch – the petrol engine is claimed to be 15 per cent more efficient than the previous engine with an average fuel consumption of 7.3 litres per 100km and CO2 emissions of 165 grams per kilometre.
