Land Rover LR2
From Land Rover press: Upgraded interior and exterior styling give a fresh new look for the 2011 Land Rover LR2. Exterior design changes include a new front bumper and two bar grille, giving the LR2 a front appearance in line with the hot-selling new Land Rover LR4.
The straight six is the best balanced of all engine configurations but its length usually makes it difficult to package transversely. The straight six accelerates the LR2 to 60mph in 8.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds) and on to a top speed of 124mph (200 km/h). However, the Rear End Ancillary Drive (READ) arrangement of the i6, with ancillaries like water pump, air conditioning compressor and alternator mounted at the rear rather than the front, reduce the length of the i6 to an incredible 23.64 inches (60 cm) making it an easy fit in the LR2’s engine bay.
With an advanced, aluminum block, head and bedplate the i6 remains at the cutting edge of engine design. The i6 is equipped with twin overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder with cam profile switching (CPS) and variable valve timing (VVT). The combination of the two mix high power with low end flexibility and maximum efficiency.
