Jaguar land rover petrol engine named in world’s top 10
For 2018, a total of 32 new or significantly improved powertrains from a number of automotive manufacturers were tested by WardsAuto’s editors in real-life, on-road driving conditions.
This year’s 10 Best Engines were selected based on a range of testing criteria including, but not limited to, maximum power output, fuel economy, noise characteristics and new technology.
The all-aluminium Ingenium 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine delivers performance, efficiency and refinement without compromise. Jaguar’s first compact SUV, the E-PACE, is the latest model to feature the 184kW Ingenium powertrain; accelerating from 0-100km/h in as little as 6.6 seconds and delivering fuel economy of up to 7.7 litres per kilometer.
Executive Director of Product Engineering, Nick Rogers, said: “To be recognised by WardsAuto for creating one of the best engines for 2018 is a real honour. Our family of low-emission, four-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines are some of the cleanest in the world. It supports our commitment to reduce vehicle emissions and improve fuel economy. Engineered to give the best driving performance in all conditions, Ingenium engines feature advanced, fully variable valve train technology, combined with a low-friction turbocharger, for enhanced responsiveness and maximum fuel efficiency.”
Ingenium engine technology was first introduced in 2015 with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. This was followed by the advanced petrol engines entering production in April 2017.
Available across most of the Jaguar Land Rover line-up, the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine is available in 184kW and 221kW versions. In addition to the E-PACE, the engines have been well received in vehicles from the Jaguar XE to the Jaguar F-TYPE and from the Land Rover Discovery Sport to the latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles.
