Jaguar Land Rover ups their Ingenium engine ante
 

Ingenium. It sounds like some rare metal mined on the Moon. In actual fact Ingenium is the name of a range of high output, low-emission four-cylinder engines used by Jaguar Land Rover. The diesel variant debuted internationally in 2015 and just recently made its way to the South African market. Indeed, you can find this 132kW/430Nm oil-burner in models such as the Discovery Sport, Jaguar XF and swanky new F-Pace. Now the Tata Motors-owned firm has announced that an Ingenium petrol engine will be joining the lineup in 2017. Expected to land locally towards the end of 2017 this powerplant apparently features “state-of-the-art technologies such as an electrohydraulic valvetrain, integrated exhaust manifold and twin scroll turbocharger with ceramic ball bearing technology.” Basically geek-speak for 25-percent more power and 10-percent less fuel consumption than the current engines they’re set to replace.
