INGENIUM ENGINE: OUR GUIDE
DISCOVER ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR MOST EFFICIENT ENGINE EVER, FROM WHAT IT IS, TO WHAT IT DOES.
WHAT IS INGENIUM?
Simply put, Ingenium is the future of Jaguar engines. Costing £500 million, the Ingenium is a state-of-the-art car engine designed and engineered from scratch at our Engine Manufacturing Centre in the West Midlands. The Ingenium engine was built to maximise performance and environmental sustainability at the same time as driving down running costs for car owners.
Already, the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol and turbodiesel engines have been introduced to our XF, XE, F-PACE and F-TYPE models, and will eventually feature in most current and new models.
"Customers around the world are increasingly demanding cleaner-running, more efficient vehicles that maintain or even enhance the performance attributes expected of a rugged all-terrain vehicle or a high performance car. Our Ingenium engines deliver this to a new level." Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart, Jaguar Land Rover Group Engineering Director.
INGENIUM: KEY POINTS
- Our most fuel-efficient engine ever. Can achieve from 4.2 l/100km (combined cycle XE).
- Environmentally friendly. Lowering harmful gas emissions including CO2 and nitrogen oxides.
- Money saving. Better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions means less money on fuel.
- Enhanced performance. Higher torque for quicker acceleration.
- Smooth and quiet drive. Thanks to a lighter engine and technical improvements.
- All-terrain capability. Retains off-road and towing performance.
Ingenium engines have been subject to over two-million miles of real-world testing and over 72,000 hours of dyno testing – comparable to eight years of worst-case scenario operating conditions.
INGENIUM: WHY WAS IT DEVELOPED?
At Jaguar, we are always committed to developing new technology to improve our vehicles’ performance and driving experience. The Ingenium engine embodies this ethos and ensures our vehicles meet new Euro 6 emissions standards that come into effect on 1st September 2015.
A key feature of the Ingenium engine is its future-proofing. Having been developed from scratch by some of the world’s finest automotive engineers, the engine was designed without compromise and with one eye on tomorrow. As well as complying with EU legislation, the state-of-the-art engine can be adapted to integrate future technology advances and regulation changes.
Ingenium is also a prime example of Jaguar’s commitment to British engineering and manufacturing. We’ve been able to create 6,900 UK jobs at the Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre and in the supply chain by bringing engine production in-house.
"Being configurable and flexible are the two key strands of Ingenium – it will be able to accept new advances in fuel, turbocharging, emissions, performance and electrification technologies when they are ready.” Ron Lee, Jaguar Land Rover Director of Powertrain Engineering.
HOW WILL INGENIUM IMPACT THE ENVIRONMENT?
Ingenium offers excellent environmental sustainability thanks to significantly improved fuel efficiency and new technology.
Jaguar XE, boasting a 132kw diesel engine, has fuel economy from 4.2 l/100km (combined cycle) and CO2 emissions of just 111g/km. Similar results are found in the All-New XF model, which runs from 4.3 l/100km with CO2 emissions as low as 114g/km.
An essential feature of the emissions reduction is a new urea-based diesel exhaust fluid that helps break down harmful gases, such as nitrogen oxides. Other contributors to better fuel economy and lower emissions include the engine’s lighter aluminium build and its advanced friction-reducing technology.
