Range Rover Sport HST revealed for the UK

Range Rover Sport HST revealed for the UK

For the moment, the new straight-six will only be available on the special edition HST.

It will made at JLR's Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton.

These performance-boosting technologies, combined with Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology, optimizes performance, fuel economy and reduces emissions.

The supercharger can spool up to 120,000 rpm in half a second, which Land Rover says eliminates turbo lag.

Initially available exclusively on the HST special edition model and priced from £81,250, the newcomer uses a 3-litre straight-six turbocharged petrol engine and a mild hybrid system, which uses an electric motor to harvest energy normally lost under braking.

In addition to being committed to delivering clean diesel and gasoline engines, Jaguar Land Rover is investing in electrification with next-generation Electric Drive Units (EDU) starting production at the EMC from 2020. This power is stored in a 48V battery and can then be used to improve the engine's efficiency when it is under load, such as when pulling away from traffic lights.

The clever system is based around an all-new Start-Stop system that switches off when stationary and pairs the latest 3.0-litre engine with an electric motor.

Nick Rogers, executive director of product engineering at Jaguar Land Rover, said the new engine would also be more refined than the old V6 thanks to its in-line layout.

The HST trim offers five colors and two wheel designs, with brake calipers in either red or anodized gray.

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.
