These features, underpinned by the latest Ingenium petrol engine, form part of a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain designed to bring enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 30.4mpg (9.3l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212g/km** (NEDC equivalent combined). It is the latest step taken by Jaguar Land Rover to ensure it offers an electrified option on all new models from 2020.

Based around a new start-stop system, the latest 3.0-litre engine is paired with an electric motor that can harvest energy through deceleration and store it in a 48V battery. This energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist, reducing CO2 emissions and the work load on the engine.

Traditional Range Rover strengths have been heightened with the introduction of the latest 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine. Advanced technologies, such as Continuous Variable Valve Lift, work alongside a mild-hybrid system that harvests energy as you drive, to improve fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The otherwise wasted energy is used to power the electric supercharger, which enhances vehicle capability by enhancing the torque curve at low engine speeds for greater responses. Superior comfort is achieved thanks to the natural mass balance of the engine, which allows it to run more smoothly.

In addition, an updated paint palette includes two new colours, as Eiger Grey replaces Corris Grey and Portofino Blue is now available instead of Loire Blue. Customers can also choose a new 22-inch Gloss Black wheel, in addition to the existing 21-inch and 22-inch options.

The headlights on Range Rover have been updated to include two new features as standard. Available on both Matrix and Pixel LED systems, Sign Post Dimming identifies road signs and turns off the individual LEDs that could reflect back and cause glare for the driver. Tourist Mode has also been added to the Pixel system, allowing a driver to select whether they are driving on the left or right-hand side of the road and adjusting the beam pattern accordingly.

Connectivity has been enhanced with the addition of a new Smartphone Pack, fitted as standard across the range. Offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mobile device mirroring, it provides intuitive access to customers’ favourite compatible apps such as navigation and music streaming.

Owners continue to benefit from traditional capability features, for tasks such as Terrain Response 2. There is also a suite of safety technology, including optional Adaptive Cruise Control – featuring Stop & Go and Steering Assist – alongside High Speed Emergency Braking.

The updated colour palette, enhanced LED lighting and improved connectivity are available on the latest Range Rover Sport, in addition to the new 400PS Ingenium engine. Launched on the special edition HST model, the latest 400PS Ingenium engine is now available on additional trim levels.

About Ingenium engines

Ingenium, the family of premium diesel and petrol engines designed, engineered and manufactured by Jaguar Land Rover, delivers class-leading levels of torque, horsepower and refinement while reducing emissions and fuel consumption.

The all-aluminium Ingenium petrol and diesel engines were built to maximise performance and environmental sustainability at the same time as driving down running costs for car owners. The modular design enables both petrol and diesel engines to share many common internal components and calibration strategies. The configurable and flexible common architecture also enables maximum manufacturing efficiency, more variants, higher quality and greater speed to market. This reduces complexity, raises quality, simplifies manufacturing, and allows Jaguar Land Rover to react more quickly to changes in global demand.

A host of advanced technologies enables Ingenium engines to deliver a blend of high performance and low fuel consumption. Neatly integrated into the cylinder head of our petrol engines is an electrohydraulic valvetrain featuring patented control algorithms developed by Jaguar Land Rover. This enables fully variable control of intake valve lift for optimum power, torque and efficiency throughout the engine’s operating range.
