Updated Range Rover Isn't A Transgender Bi-Sexual It's Straight... A Straight-Six Mild Hybrid

The Range Rover is now available with the latest 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine. The upgraded powertrain enhances performance and quicker responses and a claimed improved fuel economy. The new Ingenium straight-six engine is cleaner and more efficient. The latest 400HP Ingenium engine delivers 550Nm of torque that powers the new Range Rover from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and to a top speed of 140mph.

The introduction of an electric supercharger delivers immediate boost by spooling in 0.5s up to 65000rpm, provideing almost instant torque response. This is thanks to the optimal coordination between electric supercharger and twin-scroll turbocharger, which virtually eliminates turbo lag.

A twin-scroll turbocharger boosts power by helping the new engine breathe with maximum efficiency. In turn this optimises performance and fuel economy, while reducing emissions.

These features, underpinned by the latest Ingenium petrol engine, form part of a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain designed to bring enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 30.4mpg (9.3L/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212g/km (NEDC equivalent combined). Land Rover to ensure will offer an electrified option on all new models from 2020.

Based around a new start-stop system, the latest 3.0-litre engine is paired with an electric motor that can harvest energy through deceleration and store it in a 48V battery. This energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist, reducing CO2 emissions and the work load on the engine.

In addition, an updated paint palette includes two new colours, as Eiger Grey replaces Corris Grey and Portofino Blue is now available instead of Loire Blue. Customers can also choose a new 22in Gloss Black wheel, in addition to the existing 21in and 22in options.
