On the new engine, the double-flow turbocharger is supplemented with an electric compressor.

SUV Range Rover Sport received a new inline six-cylinder engine. The three-liter petrol turbo engine of the Ingenium family develops 400 horsepower.

The inline engine is unified with the four-cylinder engines of the Ingenium family. He will come to replace the V6 AJ126 with a 90-degree angle of collapse, which is based on the Yaguar V8 model AJ8.

On the new engine, the double-flow turbocharger is supplemented with an electric compressor, which should level the effect of the turbo lag. A 48-volt electric motor is capable of spinning the impeller in just a half second to a maximum of 120,000 revolutions per minute. Other engine features include a smooth valve lift system, inlet and outlet phase shifters, ball bearing camshafts, and variable displacement oil and water pumps.

Maximum output – 400 horsepower and 550 Nm against 340 power and 450 Nm for the old engine. At the same time, the younger modification is planned with a reduced power of up to 360 hp. But in any configuration, the engine works only as part of a “soft hybrid” – that is, paired with an electric motor of low power, which helps when starting off, and also acts as a starter and generator.
