WHAT IS THE INGENIUM ENGINE?

Put simply: Ingenium engines are the future for Land Rover.

Designed from scratch at our £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre in the West Midlands, the Jaguar Land Rover Ingenium Powertrain – to give it its full title – is a state-of-the-art car engine. It has been engineered to maximise performance, refinement and environmental sustainability while reducing running costs for owners.

The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbodiesel engine has been introduced to the Discovery Sport, Discovery, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque models. Over the coming years, variants of the Ingenium engine will be featured more and more in updated versions of current models and newly unveiled ones.

"Customers are demanding cleaner-running vehicles that enhance the performance attributes expected of a rugged all-terrain vehicle. Our Ingenium engines deliver this to a new level."

Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart

Ingenium engines have been subject to two-million miles of real-world testing and 72,000 hours of dyno testing – that's eight years of worst-case scenario operating conditions.

  

WHY HAS LAND ROVER DEVELOPED INGENIUM?

Since the first Land Rovers rolled off the production line in 1948, a commitment to cutting-edge technology has been a key feature of the brand. The Ingenium engine is the latest innovative step forward in improving our vehicles, and will meet new EU6b emissions regulations which come into force from 1st September 2015.

But that’s not all: the Ingenium is ‘future-proofed’. Some of the world’s finest automotive engineers have worked to develop the engine from a blank page. This has meant no engineering compromises, and an engine designed with one eye on tomorrow. So not only is the engine state-of-the-art and EU-compliant in 2015, but it can be adapted to integrate future technology enhancements and respond to regulation changes.

Ingenium also shows Land Rover’s commitment to British manufacturing. By bringing engine production in-house, we’ve been able to create 6,900 jobs in the UK at the Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre and in the supply chain.

Being configurable and flexible are the two key strands of Ingenium – it will be able to accept new advances in fuel, emissions and performance technologies when they are ready.

HOW WILL INGENIUM AFFECT MY DRIVE?

Better Performance

You might think that the trade off for a cleaner engine with better fuel economy would be a reduction in performance. But not with Ingenium. In fact, torque for the 132KW Ingenium engine is actually increased, from 420Nm to 430Nm, versus the outgoing 140KW engine on the Discovery Sport. What does this mean? Greater bottom end acceleration. This has been achieved through the combination of a lighter engine, and a 17% decrease in internal engine friction, which boosts responsiveness and therefore access to engine power. In a nutshell, everyday driving will feel quicker.

Smooth and Quiet
Your drive in a Land Rover with an Ingenium engine should be noticeably quiet and smooth. The all-aluminium Ingenium engines are between 20 and 30kg lighter than previous diesel engines, depending on the model. Coupled with the friction reduction and a series of intricate design modifications to ensure lower levels of vibration and greater access to engine power, the result is exceptional drive refinement. In layman’s terms, the engine is more intelligent. It’s smarter at deploying the right amounts of power at the right times, with less wastage and greater control.

No Off-Road Compromise
Land Rovers have always been renowned for superb all-terrain capability. Ingenium will extend this legacy. The engine has gone through two million miles of testing – including extreme off-roading scenarios – so it’s safe to say Ingenium is ready for adventure. Adjustments to Ingenium’s aluminium engine block and oil sump design have made to ensure that they are optimised for use in models – including the Evoque and Discovery Sport – with transverse application, which powers the front or all four wheels. Elsewhere, the increased torque means there’s no change to towing capacity.

 

The Ingenium engine will be available in the 2016 Discovery Sport (top) and Range Rover Evoque (bottom).

 

AND THE ENVIRONMENT?

In short, Ingenium will offer outstanding environmental sustainability – thanks to vastly improved fuel efficiency and a raft of new technologies. Key to the emissions reduction is a new urea-based diesel exhaust fluid, which helps to neutralise harmful gases – particularly CO2 and nitrogen oxide, reducing the latter by half compared to the previous EU5 regulation standard. The lighter aluminium engine and advanced friction-reducing technologies are among the other contributors to better economy and lower emissions.

 

SERVICING?

What about those of you who really eat up the kilometers? Perhaps you have a hundred km round trip to work each day, or maybe you spend your summers exploring every corner of Australia with your family. Whatever the reason, we think you’re going to enjoy this next one.

SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

Routine services must be carried out throughout the life of the vehicle. Traditionally, a service would be due after a vehicle has reached a certain mileage or elapsed time. The Flexible Service on your vehicle takes into account individual driving styles and conditions to determine when a service is due.

Your vehicle is fitted with a service interval indicator in the instrument panel. When a service is due, and when the ignition is switched on, the relevant service message and estimated distance to the next service is displayed.

On completion of a service, the instrument panel countdown feature is reset.

Important note on imagery & specification. We are living through exceptional times. Due to the Covid pandemic we have been prevented or delayed in the creation of new images of current model years. Now the global impact of micro-chip shortages is further affecting build specifications, options and launch timings. Until this unique event settles, please note that many images cannot be updated to 22 model year specifications. Features, options, trim and colour schemes will differ from many images. Customers are urged to consult your local Retailer for detailed 22 model year specifications and do not base an order on marketing imagery and specification alone.

Jaguar Land Rover Limited is constantly seeking ways to improve the specification, design and production of its vehicles, parts and accessories and alterations take place continually, and we reserve the right to change without notice. Some features may vary between optional and standard for different model years. The information, specification, engines and colours on this website are based on European specification and may vary from market to market and are subject to change without notice. Some vehicles are shown with optional equipment and retailer-fit accessories that may not be available in all markets. Please contact your local retailer for local availability and prices.

‡‡Price shown is the manufacturers recommended drive-away prices (MRDP) which applies to the vehicle model and optional features selected in the vehicle configurator and as described in the configuration summary. The MRDP is an estimated price which includes the manufacturer's recommended list price, any associated registration fees, applicable taxes (including GST), levies and CTP insurances at the time of publishing in accordance with the applicable state / territory legislation where the Retailer is located for a 12 month period. The MRDP may vary as a result of differences in price components such as location, stamp duty or registration fees. CTP rate is based on a private owner aged 40 with 0 demerit points, no accidents or driving convictions and the vehicle being garaged in the postcode entered. Some information presented or used in the MRDP calculation is sourced from third parties. Jaguar Land Rover Australia has made every effort to ensure accuracy, however please contact your preferred Jaguar Land Rover Retailer to confirm your actual drive-away price which may vary according to your individual circumstances, including any trade-in value agreed between you and the Retailer.
