The Jaguar Land Rover began installing a new, straight six-cylinder engine. The three-liter gasoline turbocharger is unified with the four-cylinder Ingenium family and will replace the AJ126 V-shaped AJ126 based on the Jaguar V8 AJ8.
The new engine is equipped with a cascade turbocharger as well as an electric blower that eliminates the turbo hole. Its 48-volt electric motor pushes the rotor to a maximum of 120,000 rpm in just half a second.
Among the other features of the unit are the system for smooth change of the lift of valves, ball bearings with ball bearings, oil and water pump with variable output.
The maximum power and torque are 400 hp. and 550 Nm versus 340 hp. and 450 Nm for the old bike. A deformed version with 360 horses is also planned. In all configurations, however, the new six-seater works as a soft hybrid, assisted by a small electric motor that also acts as a starter-generator.
The first car to be equipped with the new bike is the Range Rover Sport HST. Armed with it, the SUV accelerates to 100 in 6.2 seconds. and reaches a top speed of 225 km / h against 7.2 seconds. and 209 km / h with the compressor V6. At a later stage, the unit will also be mounted on other Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar models.
