Land Rover used its appearance at the Dubai International Motor Show (DIMS) to unveil a new iteration of the iconic Range Rover, powered by the brand’s new six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine.

Catering to automotive enthusiasts and major car manufacturers, DIMS, which this year runs from 12 to 16 November, is the ideal event to introduce a more responsive and better-balanced Range Rover to a market with a deep affinity and admiration for the model.

Combining dynamic on-road handling, luxurious refinement, and the trademark Land Rover all-terrain capability, the introduction of the all-new in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol engine enhances performance, optimises efficiency, and improves fuel economy. Buyers have a choice of 360PS or 400PS.

“From the outset we always intended Ingenium to be a full family. That is why we chose to engineer our own flexible engine architecture to meet our bespoke needs, allowing Jaguar Land Rover to adapt and stay ahead of changes in regulation and technology. This second wave of engines, with a Mild Hybrid 48V system and performance-boosting technologies, is engineered to be cleaner and more efficient than ever before,” said Nick Rogers, Executive Director of Product Engineering.

The all-new 400PS Ingenium engine offers 550Nm of torque, powering the Range Rover from 0-100km/h in 6.3seconds and to a top speed of 225km/h. The 360PS iteration delivers 495Nm of torque to propel the Range Rover from 0-100km/h in 6.9seconds and a top speed of 209km/h.

The smooth and responsive new six-cylinder unit combines a number of advanced features, including the introduction of an electric supercharger to deliver immediate power response. Able to spool fully in just 0.5 seconds at up to 120,000rpm via a direct connection with the throttle, the new technology virtually eliminates turbo lag.

Supported by a twin-scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift, which boost power and help the engine breathe with maximum efficiency, the design of the all-new six-cylinder engine optimises performance and fuel economy as well as reducing emissions – all with customary Range Rover poise and refinement.

These performance-boosting technologies work alongside a new Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain that is underpinned by the new engine, bringing enhanced efficiency to the range with combined fuel economy of 9.3-9.5/100km and CO2 emissions of 212-216g/km*. This is the latest step Land Rover has taken towards meeting its commitment of offering an electrified option on all new models from 2020.

The clever system is based around an all-new Start-Stop system that switches off when stationery and pairs the latest 3.0-litre engine with an electric motor. This allows the system to harvest energy through regenerative braking and store it in a 48V battery for later use, such as when pulling away from a standing start.

Designed and developed in-house by Jaguar Land Rover, the latest six-cylinder Ingenium engine will be manufactured at the £1billion Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, alongside the current four-cylinder petrol and diesel units.

Bruce Robertson, Managing Director for Jaguar Land Rover MENA, said: “Our new Ingenium unit builds on the promise to optimise efficiency in all operating conditions. We at Jaguar Land Rover know how much our Middle East customers value that very rare combination of high performance, ultra-luxury and high efficiency in a vehicle. The advanced features, including an electric supercharger, ensure distinctive Range Rover performance and responses, while the intelligent MHEV system harvests energy to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions.”

Range Rover’s latest petrol engine brings a new driving dynamic to a model that oozes refinement and luxury. The latest Range Rover grabs attention with a more contemporary look, defined by a new front grille, front bumper and bonnet. Each complements the floating roofline and continuous waistline, while pixel-laser LED headlights give the model greater presence at any speed.

Inside, first class comfort and meticulous attention to detail is complemented by a highly adaptable interior, offering up to 1,943 litres of loadspace with the rear seats folded flat. Land Rover’s Touch Pro Duo infotainment system is accessed through two responsive 10” high-definition touchscreens as standard, with voice recognition providing simpler – and safer, usability.

In motion, drivers are supported by a variety of intelligent assistive technologies. Lane Departure Warning, Front and Rear Parking Aids, and Cruise Control with a Speed Limiter are all standard fixtures. Joining them is Hill Descent Control (HDC) for greater control down challenging slopes, and a Twin-Speed Transfer Box that provides invaluable additional lower gears when manoeuvring through challenging road surfaces or towing.
