if inline 6 means better fuel economy, i'm all for it. since this is a vehicle i'll be driving in the city often mileage does matter to me.
Granted their are packaging issues with an inline 6 powerplant, however as BMW has shown us its more than possible. An inline 6 design focus also lends itself to Jaguars normally sexy shapes, the long nose, short rear look of their entire range would ostensibly signal more than enough space for an Inline 6 setup, same can be said for Range Rovers.I’m not going to tell you whether we’re going to do a V-6 or an I-6 [inline six],” chief engineer for the Ingenium engines, Paul Witworth, told Motoring. “But what I will say is an I-6 has less moving parts for a start and when it comes to fuel economy and emissions the less moving parts you’ve got the better you are.”
