IMechE Engineering Training Solutions today (7 April), took delivery of a Jaguar Land Rover 3.0: AJ-6D GEN III Diesel Engine that is now standing proudly in the reception area of the Engineering Training Centre.

Used in Jaguar Land Rover's Range Rover Sport (TDV6), the AJ-V6D GEN III 3.0-litre engine was launched in 2009 and was engineered and manufactured by some of Britain's finest automotive engineers.

Based on the LR-TDV6 2.7 engine, the new AJ-V6D has been radically redesigned to deliver substantially higher performance, lower emissions and better fuel economy, meaning it fits well within current emissions regulations.

Its unique use of parallel sequential system turbocharging means the throttle response has been dramatically enhanced, enabling the car to reach 60mph in less than nine seconds, with a maximum speed of 124mph.

The parallel sequential system uses only the larger, variable geometry turbocharger when the engine is running at low rpms. When the engine reaches 2,800rpm, the smaller fixed-geometry turbocharger kicks in.

With unparalleled levels of refinement, progressive power on demand and torque for a variety of driving styles and performance requirements, this engine is a great example of British engineering at its best.
