Jaguar and Land Rover include technical improvements thanks to this new gearbox
innovation and the development will not stop. And although lately we talk more of connectivity systems and security, the truth is that you are still investing large amounts of money in mechanical technologies, such as Jaguar and Land Rover, which will soon be presented to us a new block of gasoline and a box of changes dual-clutch and eight-speed.
In recent years, the brands of English have been shown to be very active in the development of future technologies. Jaguar and Land Rover the most. Both work together for the expansion of their range of mechanical high efficiency. Now we have a new block that will soon be added to the family Ingenium, which we already know.
petrol engine with four-cylinder, turbocharged and two litres manufactured entirely in aluminium that not only reduces the weight of its predecessors, but also increases fuel efficiency thanks to the employment of a valve train electro-hydraulic, an integrated exhaust manifold and turbocharger-dual technology ceramic bearings.
however the real novelty, without detracting from the engine, comes in the section of the boxes changes. Both brands have always relied on the brand’s ZF to take care of transmissions, but after an investment of the English Government, both Jaguar and Land Rover have developed a new automatic gearbox of double clutch and eight-speed transmission.
Is called TRANSCEND and it has been developed to offer the best possible performance with the greatest efficiency conceivable. The result is a box of aluminum 20 kilograms lighter, with eight speeds and a gear ratio up to 20:1. More than double the number of boxes conventional.
Such is its versatility it can be used in cars with different configurations, whether they are in traction, propulsion or 4×4. All of this, both engine and box, are integrated in the plan that both brands have face-to 2020, the date at which they expect to have reduced their emission figures in to a 25%.
The family Ingenium will grow thanks to this new petrol engine is highly efficient
