Jaguar Land Rover Bringing Back Inline-Six Engines to its Lineup

Jaguar Land Rover is getting ready to expand its Ingenium family of engines.

The British automaker will phase out its current V6 offerings for new inline six-cylinder engines that are expected to debut next year. The Ingenium family of engines were designed to be modular, so it was only a matter of time before six-cylinder mills were produced. According to a recent report from CAR, the new six-cylinder engine will be a 3.0-liter turbocharged unit available in gasoline and diesel form that will result in a total of six variants with a wide range of performance.

The standard gasoline six-cylinder mill will produce 300, 400 and 500 horsepower, while the diesel engine will generate 275, 335 and 400 hp.

The new six-cylinder engines will be lighter weight and more fuel efficient compared to today’s V6 offerings, while drawing inspiration from Jaguar’s rich heritage of straight-six engines. The powerplants will be used across both automaker’s lineups, so expect to see them under the hood of the Jaguar XE, XF, F-Pace and XJ as well as Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery models.
