NEW Range Rover Sport HST Adds Straight-Six Performance & Refinement

Introduction of special edition with new 400PS Ingenium petrol engine adds straight-six balance and refinement to Range Rover Sport line-up

The Engine

The Range Rover Sport effortlessly combines dynamic on-road handling, luxurious refinement and trademark Land Rover all-terrain capability. The introduction of an all-new 400PS in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol engine enhances performance, refinement and responses along with improved fuel economy.

Available initially on the special edition HST model, the all-new 400PS* Ingenium engine is more responsive and better balanced than the previous V6 petrol. With 550Nm of torque, it powers the Range Rover Sport from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 6.2 seconds (0-60mph in 5.9 seconds) and to a top speed of 140mph (225km/h).

The smooth and responsive new six-cylinder unit has an innovative combination 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. This is the latest step Land Rover has taken towards meeting its commitment of offering an electrified option on all new models from 2020.



"In-line six-cylinder engines are inherently better balanced than V6 designs and our all-new Ingenium unit builds on that promise to optimise efficiency in all operating conditions"

The New Model

Advanced features, including an electric supercharger, ensure distinctive Range Rover Sport performance and responses, while the intelligent MHEV system harvests energy to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions.”

Range Rover Sport’s new 400PS petrol engine will be available on the special edition HST model, which features a unique combination of interior and exterior updates including bespoke badging and carbon fibre trim on the bonnet, front grille, side vents and tailgate.

Customers will have a choice of two alloy wheel designs and five exterior colours – Santorini Black, Fuji White, Indus Silver, Firenze Red and Carpathian Grey. The HST will be identified by red brake calipers, with a grey anodised option also available.

Inside, the 16-way Dynamic front seats feature an updated colour pattern with suedecloth detailing on the steering wheel and gear lever, Satin Chrome gear shift paddles and an HST badged facia. In addition, the available suite of safety enhancements includes optional Adaptive Cruise Control – featuring Stop & Go and Steering Assist – alongside High Speed Emergency Braking. Owners will also benefit from traditional capability features, such as Terrain Response 2.

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.
