    Land Rover's straight six ingenium engine, clean diesel now a thing.

    Land Rover has introduced new inline-six-cylinder clean diesel mild-hybrid engines across its revised Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models.

    Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it.

    I wonder if these new inline-six-cylinder clean diesel mild-hybrid engines will become available in the new Defender. This certainly would be a plus for us diesel lovers

    Nice article. Reading the comments to the article I found this one :-)

    Yeah, I saw that. I'm sure it was deliberate, a little tongue in cheek. Be interesting to keep tabs on these engines , I'm assuming there is a place on the forum for those who buy these vehicles. A little bit too rich for me, I think. Just have to hope the trusty TD5 keeps chugging away. And not too many bits fall off the old girl .

    It's interesting to see the comments coming forward re new engine technology.

    Imagine if truck drivers had the same negative attitudes.

    I was a diesel mech in the NT in the 70's and technology was a 71 series GM with open ports and a Woodward EGB-2P electro/hyd/mech governor.

    Charcoal pouring out the stacks was considered good and tough by truckers then.

    The modern truck engine technology is up there with Formula 1 and develop higher power and torque figures at about 30% of the engine speeds that the GMs and Cummins did in the 70s with about 20% better fuel consumption.

    Land Rover is doing no pioneering with its new engines , just adopting the latest European technology.

    I'm going to ask a dumb question which probably should be somewhere else.
    Why don't they use electricly driven Turbos/superchargers?

    71 & 92 Series Detroits were governed at either 2100 or 1950 for automotive use and 2300 in marine applications. The last of the 8V71N's had 333 hp @ 2300 on their data plates. Cummins NTC series were governed at either 2100 or 1900 in the formula version. Some NTA series for crane carriers and fire appliances were governed at 2300. Are you saying that modern truck engines are running at 630 rpm?

    Perhaps you mean a 30% reduction in governed rpm?
