Jaguar Land Rover has revealed its next-generation engine family: Ingenium.

The all-new family of compact, lightweight, low-emissions diesel and gasoline turbocharged engines are designed to deliver both fuel efficiency and performance, according to the British automaker. Expect the upcoming Jaguar XE to be powered by an engine from the Ingenium family, especially since the company announced volume production begins early next year on the powerplants.

From the early development stages, Jaguar Land Rover and its engineers wanted the new engine family to be configurable and flexible in order to enable seamless installation on a range of new vehicles. The motors are scalable up and down to create smaller or larger displacement variants in the future and will be able to accommodate a range of powertrain layouts including rear- and all-wheel drive, and both manual and automatic transmissions.

The basis for both the gasoline and diesel engines is an aluminum block that share the same bore, stroke, cylinder spacing and 500-cc cylinder capacity. Every powerplant will feature turbochargers, central direct high-pressure fuel injection, variable valve timing and start-stop technology, while the modular design enables the company to share many common internal components and calibration strategies.

The first volume production Ingenium engine will be a 2.0-liter diesel that the company is boasting will be “one of the most efficient and responsive” 2.0-liter turbo diesels in its segment.

Would you like it if your car already knew where you were headed and what you wanted to listen to on the radio before you even sat down in it?

Jaguar Land Rover is working towards exactly that, and is currently in the process of developing an intelligent, self-learning car that will recognize your driving habits and tailor the car’s settings to suit you.

Before you even enter the car, it will recognize who you are based on your smartphone, and adjust presets like the mirror angles, steering wheel position, cabin temperature and seat settings to suit you. Once in, the car’s ‘smart assistant’ will analyze your schedule and set the navigation based on where you you need to go that day, and if you’re running late, the smart assistant will offer to call or E-mail ahead to let someone know.

SEE ALSO: Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept can be Driven by Remote Control

In fact, if you make the same phone call everyday to the same person, the car will predict this behavior and suggest making the call automatically at that specific time.

Reminders will also be sent to your smartphone on days that you need to bring something along with you to a scheduled appointment, say your kid’s sports equipment. And it’s not just for the driver either. The smart assistant will recognize passengers in the car and activate their preferred infotainment and climate settings.

When it comes to the actual driving experience, this Jaguar Land Rover vehicle will be able to learn anyone’s driving style and will replicate it when the active cruise control is activated.

To see exactly how all this works when put together, check out the video below.

Rally-US-50-Pre-Rally-Article-MainRally North America and 2015 Hyundai Genesis: Mike Schlee, Road Test Editor

“For the next week and a half I’ll be taking part in the annual Rally North America charity road rally. This year’s event is the 2014 US 50 Rally. We will be starting in Martinsburg, WA on July 7th and finishing up in Pueblo, CO on July 11th.  My vehicle of choice for this long distance road rally will be the supremely comfortable 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan.” Follow Mikes progress on Twitter and send him your well wishes while he goes and rallies for a cause.

2012-Lamborghini-Aventador-LP700-4-2 Lamborghini Aventador: Luke Vandezande, Managing Editor -

“I had the unusual opportunity to spend last weekend driving a Lamborghini Aventador. This is hands-down the fastest, most expensive and most exotic car I’ve ever driven. Look out for the video review soon.”

 

2015 subaru outback 2015 Subaru Outback -

“Jumping from one end of the spectrum of practicality to the other, I’ll be transitioning into a 2015 Subaru Outback. Like the Lamborghini, it also uses an all-wheel drive system. Unlike the Lamborghini, you can probably afford to buy one and drive it every day.”

 

2011_porsche_boxster_spyder_pw-026-878 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder -

“Finally I’m capping off my very busy week with a 2011 certified pre-owned Porsche Boxster Spyder. The special edition lightweight sports car isn’t currently being built, but people who leased them are starting to trade them in. They retail for around $60,000 now through Porsche, so I’ll be asking if this is one of the best second-chance car buying opportunities of the year.” Luke has a pretty busy week, but that won’t stop him from replying to your tweets.

Range-Rover-Sport-Stealth-Package 2014 Range Rover Sport: Stephen Elmer, News Editor

“This week, I’ll be piloting the new Range Rover Sport. Fit with a massive 5.0-liter supercharged V8, this SUV is equal parts sports car, off-roader and comfy cruiser. But all that capability comes at a cost, which may make the Range Rover an irrelevant pick in a segment full of winners. So is the Sport worth the money? We’ll find out and let you know.” Have any questions for Steve? Follow him on Twitter and send him any questions you may have about this awesome SUV.

Land Rover’s latest and greatest Range Rover Sport will debut in prototype form at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and details on the SUV are slowly trickling out.

First, we found out that this version of the Range Rover Sport will wear an SVR badge, and now we know that it will have a 550-hp supercharged V8 under its hood. This will be the fastest, most dynamic Range Rover Sport yet thanks to extensive testing at the Nurburgring.

Jaguar Land Rover’s new Special Operations Division started with the Range Rover Sport SVR, which will be the first vehicle to come from the company’s new performance-tuning arm. It will also be the first vehicle to wear the SVR badge, but Jaguar Land Rover says that all future special operations vehicles will sport the moniker.

The Special Operations Division has also been busy developing the new Jaguar F-Type Project 7, a limited-edition version of the F-Type convertible.

Watch for more details on the Range Rover Sport SVR when it is revealed at Goodwood, sometime between June 27 and 29.

Land Rover is bringing the fastest, most track-capable Range Rover Sport to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, and now we know it will wear the SVR badge. 

Originally rumored to be called the Range Rover Sport RS, the new SVR name no doubt has something to do with the new Special Operations Division setup at Land Rover. Special Operations is now responsible for performance-tuning Jaguar Land Rover products.

SEE ALSO: Land Rover Teases Fastest Range Rover Sport Yet

Confirmation comes courtesy of Land Rover UK’s Instagram account. The brand has been teasing the Range Rover Sport SVR for some time now, and another new teaser video was released today.

A 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with around 550 hp is expected to power this track-focused SUV.

Watch for the official debut during the Goodwood festival of speed, which takes place between Thursday, June 26 and Sunday, June 29.

Land Rover is teasing the fastest version of the Range Rover Sport, which will make its first public appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. 

If this high-performance Range Rover follows the Land Rover naming scheme, it will likely be called the Range Rover RS. However, a new special operations division in charge of building high-performance cars has just been announced at Land Rover, which means that the naming structure might also change.

SEE ALSO: Jaguar Land Rover Announces Special Operations Division

Power is likely to still come out of a 5.0-liter supercharged V8, but this special operations version will probably make about 550 hp compared to the Range Rover’s 510 hp. Previous spy photos reveal a new quad exhaust along with a reworked front fascia with larger air intakes.

Buyers who spring for the top-trim 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport are now being offered a new style option, the ‘Stealth Pack.’

Available on HSE Dynamic and Autobiography Dynamic models, the Stealth Pack features a host of black exterior bits to give it the stealth look. Those include a satin black front grille, fog lamp bezels, hood and fender vents, upper mirror caps and tailgate finisher. The headlamps and taillights are also blacked out, while buyers can choose between new 21” 9-spoke, or 22” 5-spoke wheels, in satin black finish.

SEE ALSO: 2014 Range Rover Sport Review

Power is still delivered via a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that cranks out 510hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic gets the power to the wheels, while an air suspension and dynamic mode that controls power steering, throttle, transmission, stability control, traction control, damping and lean control settings help make this SUV a serious performer in the corners.

Order books will open in July and first customer deliveries are expected towards the end of the year.

Land Rover is updating its LR4 for the 2015 model year, adding new color options, new ways to hook up your smart phone and a slightly heftier price tag. 

 LR4 owners can now download Land Rover’s InControl software for Apple or Android phones, which will allow them to control apps like iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Glympse, Cityseeker, Eventseeker, News on Board, MobileDay, and more. Other aspects of the vehicle, such as fuel levels and open windows are also shared with the owner through the InControl setup.

There are some cosmetic changes coming as well, including new 20-inch wheels, standard side steps, a new ebony/cirrus two-tone leather interior along with four new exterior colors.

Thanks to the addition of these standard features, pricing has jumped up by a small margin. Base model LR4′s now cost $51,325 with destination, up $730 over 2014, while the LR4 HSE will go for $56,225 and the LR4 HSE LUX costs $61,525.

Powering the 2015 LR4 is a 340-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 14 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.

Another week means another fleet of vehicles to test. This week we have more than a few unique cars to try out – check them out here and send us your questions and comments.

2015 nissan micra2015 Nissan Micra – Mike Schlee, Road Test Editor: 

“This week I am off to Montreal, Canada to drive the least expensive car in North America; the Nissan Micra. Beginning at a price below $10,000 the five-door hatchback is between a city car and a subcompact size wise, much like the Mitsubishi Mirage. Based on the Versa Note’s platform, will this car be any better than the universally panned Mitsubishi?”

2015-Volvo-V60-T5-Drive-E-FWD-31_rdax_646x3962015 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design:

“I’m behind the wheel of the all-new 2015 Volvo V60 T6 AWD R-Design. While we wait for the new Drive-E engines to be added to the V60′s all-wheel drivetrain, this wagon makes due with the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine making 325 hp to back up the wagon’s sporty looks.”

2015-volkswagen-golf-gti2015 Volkswagen Golf/GTI, Luke Vandezande, Managing Editor: 

“It’s a crazy week for me. I’m taking VW’s family of seventh generation Golf models out for test loops on Monday in San Francisco.” Luke is hoping to also get a chance to drive the exciting GTI, so be sure to ask him about the full Golf range.

 

range-rover2014 Range Rover Supercharged:

“Then I’m heading back to the AutoGuide.com office where I’ll spend the week driving a supercharged Range Rover. You might remember reading that Land Rover cut roughly 700 lbs from the curb weight of the new Range Rover. I doubt that makes it ‘fuel efficient,’ but such a dramatic drop will definitely make a difference.”

April 2014 Sales Winner and Loser

After one of the worst winters in recent memory America’s northern extremities are finally starting to thaw out. In addition to longer days, spring is also bringing warmer temperatures as the sun wakes up from hibernation. But were April car sales as nice? Did better weather get more people in the mood… to buy a car, that is?

All told automakers sold nearly 1.4 million new vehicles in April, an increase of about 8 percent compared to the same month last year. The change was modest but headed in the right direction, and that’s what matters.

For the first four months of 2014 deliveries have topped 5.1 million units. That’s approximately a 3 percent increase compared to the same time period last year. Again that’s small but really there’s nothing to complain about. Here’s a list of top-performing brands along with the companies that didn’t do as well.

Jaguar is testing for its upcoming SUV model by using a mule borrowed from Land Rover.

The C-X17 concept was shown off at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and the British automaker is now out testing a mule at the Nurburgring. It is simply a wider and longer Range Rover Evoque body, with Jaguar internals underneath.

The new Jaguar C-X17 will be separated in the marketplace from the models that Land Rover offers. Jaguar will stick to road-going, luxury SUVs and crossovers while Land Rover will continue to focus on its off-road capabilities.

The smallest only affects two Range Rover Evoque crossovers from the 2014 model year. Those vehicles have a problem with the bolts connecting the right hand rear suspension link arm. Land Rover says it might have been damaged during production, leading to the link arm separating from the vehicle.

A total of 297 Jaguar covering the XK, XF and XJ models from the 2013 and 2014 model year are also the subject of a recall. In those vehicles, the toe link might separate from the rear sub-frame. If that happens, the cars will lose stability and the driver will not be able to control the direction the car is traveling in.

If you happen to have bought an XF sedan from the 2013 or 2014 model year, there’s a second chance for your car to be called back. The charge air cooler hose might detach in models equipped with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A total of 1,589 vehicles are included in that campaign. If the hose does become detached, the vehicles could stall.

JLR will notify affected owners and ask them to arrange a time with their dealer to have the necessary repairs performed. The procedures will be carried out free of charge to owners.
