Future Rover Engines

Hot on the heels of the news that the V8 isn't going to be part of JLR's future, comes the news that Straight six engines rather than V6 is the direction they are going in.

Must make for much simpler manufacturing.

Not much of a surprise, probably for fuel economy reason.

But I did catch this from the article:

"V8s do have a future in JLR’s lineup, even though they won’t be built by JLR or be part of the Ingenium family.

JLR currently sources its V8s from Ford, and there is speculation that JLR could switch to BMW or Mercedes-sourced V8s in the future when the Ford deal comes to an end."

Cool. A 3 liter inline six would be perfect for a Defender replacement. Too much complexity with a V6.
