Land Rover getting Jag engines
April 29, 2003
Land Rover will indeed grab its powertrains for future product from parent company Ford, but donít look for the engines to wear a blue oval. While reports have placed a 4.0-liter Explorer engine in the next-generation Discovery and the next-gen F-150 V8 in future Land Rovers, Land Rover/Jaguar officials learned from the Mondeo/X-Type experience that the U.S. market doesnít stomach engine swaps between everyday Ford drivers and Premier Automotive Group vehicles. But powertrain love-ins arenít scratched altogether. Range Rover Sport, due in í04, gets a Jaguar supercharged V8 and possibly a Jaguar-tuned 250-hp 3.2-liter V6, while the 2005 Discovery could get a 300-hp Jaguar 4.2-liter V8.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
