Jaguar News: Rumorpile: Jaguar Land Rover Plan the Return of A Inline-Six

3 posts in this topic

The last time an inline-six could be found under the hood of a Jaguar or Land Rover vehicle was back in 1996. Afterwards, the British automaker would introduce a range of V6 engines. But those engines could be replaced by an inline-six engine.

 

Car Magazine has learned from sources that Jaguar Land Rover are readying a new inline-six engine that will be based off the new Ingenium four-cylinder engine family. The reason Jaguar Land Rover can do this is the Ingenium engine was designed to modular, so adding two more cylinders will not be a big issue.

 

The engine will be a 3.0L and feature direct injection and turbocharging. There will be gas and diesel versions with three different power outputs.

  • Gas: 300, 400, 500 horsepower
  • Diesel: 275, 335, 400 horsepower
It is unknown what vehicle the new inline-six will go into first. But Car says it will be in a number of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. Expect to see engine debut in 2017.

Ingenium is an in-house designed J&L engine.
