Range Rover L322 engine, fitting or delivery available

Range Rover L322 engine

 

The Range Rover L322 (commonly known as the "Range Rover") is the third-generation Range Rover model from a renowned automobile manufacturing brand, Land Rover and was originally produced under the codename 'L30'.

The L322 was unveiled in the year 2001 and had a production run of over ten years. Mapped out and produced under BMW ownership, the vehicle was projected to share constituents and systems (electronics, core power units etc.) with the E38 7 Series. Be that as it may, BMW had already sold Land Rover to Ford almost a couple of years before the L322 engaged in commercial production.

In the UK and many other regions, ascending trim levels were at the beginning advertised as "SE", "HSE" and "Vogue". Numerous other trims such as "Vogue SE", "Westminster", "Autobiography" and special editions were later brought in.

Jeremy Clarkson once unveiled publically in his Sunday Times column that he owned a Range Rover TDV8 Vogue and spoke highly of it saying it was ‘the best car in the world and best 4x4.’

The L322's descendent, the L405, was brought into play in August 2012 and divulged the same year at the Paris Motor Show.

The past generation P38 Range Rover or "Pegasus" had been developed whilst the British Aerospace owned Range Rover group and during the development, the budget was extremely tight. There was also the press criticism of the P38A that its styling lacked the "presence" of the original 1970 Range Rover.

When the Rover Group was purchased by BMW right after the P38A's introduction in 1994, the newly appointed BMW management at Land Rover rapidly came to the conclusion that the car would have a short shelf life in contrast to its forerunner, because of its principally old-fangled underpinnings, and the scheduled '99 Model Year' updates were abolished. A projected replacement for the Discovery was put back and the progress of an all-new Range Rover, codenamed L322, took import.

The initial codename for the project was L30, in line with the then system of Lxx for Land Rover projects, such as Freelander (L20) and Discovery2 (L25). The L30 was a mutual project comprising engineers from both Rover Group and BMW and was firstly based at BMW's FIZ Engineering Centre in Munich before shifting to Land Rover's Solihull plant for the final stages before the bulk manufacture.

Munich was picked to house the team as Rover Group's Gaydon Engineering facility was already working on the latest MINI (R50) project plus the other MG, Rover and Land Rover projects and did not have adequate room for a new large engineering team to be centred there.

The sale of Land Rover by BMW to Ford came about just before it moved to Solihull and the contract comprised a clause which continued BMW's association until after the car went into volume production.

The shift to Lxxx codenames happened after the sale to Ford with L30 being retitled as L322 at the top of a model range of Range Rover Sport (L320) Land Rover Discovery (Discovery3 L319), Land Rover Defender (L316) and Freelander (L314).

The third-generation Range Rover was developed to make room for BMW's M62 V8 engines to be fitted in the upcoming models for future models. The manual transmission was excluded completely leaving only the automatic transmission. The BMW 7 Series E38’s electronics system was being phased out in the course of the development of the third-generation Range Rover, and being swapped with the electronics systems of the BMW E39 5 Series.

The entertainment system such as radio function, Television and Telecommunications systems, automotive computer bus system as well as the navigation system on pre-facelift models were just about similar to those in the BMW E39 5 Series. Primary models of the third-generation Range Rover could be renovated with some latest BMW technologies, although from 2005 onward the electronics were built on Ford/Jaguar systems.

Initial release

Pre-facelift Range Rover Vogue

The furious Range Rover Vogue has a cantilever construction design with four-wheel autonomous air suspension. Air suspension endorsed variable ride height and got similar axle articulation to the prior live axle design. It possesses off-road abilities while quite improved on-road performance.

The new Range Rover's presentation in late 2002 as a 2003 model for the North American market lead to the Range Rover and Ford Expedition being the only two SUVs in the standard sport utility class with four-wheel independent suspension systems at that time.

In the beginning Range Rover incorporated air-cooling system with tri-zone climate controls along with power tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel plus radio controls, memory system, embellished twelve-way power driver seats, ten-way power kerbside seat, cruise control, power sunroof, a top-notch sound system with six-disc CD changer, navigation system with voice recognition, rear-view camera, wireless mobile phone connection, universal garage door opener, and outside-temperature gauge. Options encompassed 14-way power heated/cooled front seats, DVD theatre system, and advanced leather upholstery.

Range Rover 4.2 L Supercharged

At the 2005 North American International Auto Show, a key feature of the Range Rover was revealed, with the base model using the Discovery 3 engine, and an outstanding model using a boosted version of the Jaguar 4.2-litre V8 developing 400 hp (298 kW) — the same engine censured for the new Range Rover Sport (the RRS model uses a detuned variant making a total of 389 bhp (290 kW; 394 PS)), arranged to present at the same time (mid-2005) as the modernized Range Rover.

The engines are aluminium alloy entities, with the innovative torque-based engine management system, drive-by-wire throttle, and adjustable camshaft phasing (on the 4.4-litre version).

2006 Facelift Vogue Interior

The Range Rover's exterior was modernized in 2006 accompanied by the BMW V8 being substituted with a Jaguar unit. The new engine available options were Jaguar's AJ-V8, with 4.4-litre 300 hp (220 kW) or 4.2-litre 400 hp (300 kW) supercharged modifications. This new Range Rover was formally exhibited at the 2005 North American International Auto Show and unleashed in summer 2005.

From the diesel engine of the 2006 model (at this time still there was BMW six-cylinder unit) to the supercharged V8, the car could reach 97 km/h from 14.8 seconds or as less as 6.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 210 km/h correspondingly.

In addition to the engine transformation, the 2006 Range Rover is fortified with a restructured "infotainment" system. It encompasses a touch screen with on and off-road navigation, Satellite Radio (US), phone, rear-view camera, a wireless video camera system and other surplus features, all retrieved through the same user interface.

The built-in DVD system is associated by an industry-standard fibre optic network known as Media Oriented Systems Transport or MOST and an electronic network system also called as CAN bus. An analogous structure is also used on Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Sport.

Contractors of 2006 Range Rover's machinery include Continental Automotive for the whole cockpit module which fit in the Denso touch screen navigation unit. Continental also provides the centre console unit. Other suppliers involve Alpine Car Audio for integrated head unit rear-seat entertainment. Connaught Electronics Limited (CEL) arranges for the Rear View Camera (RVC) and Wireless Camera (VentureCam) systems and PTI telephone proficiencies are provided by Nokia.

Most significantly, the audio system was co-developed by Harman Kardon. The state of the art contribution gives a 720 Watt, 14-speaker system and was the first OEM vehicle to use the detached Logic 7 surround algorithm.

For 2007, most of the Range Rover's alterations were mechanical or interior. Be that as it may, the external C-pillar was given a glass facelift of the same kind as that of the Range Rover Sport, hitting a delicate yet clear exit from the original BMW influenced design.

Heading towards the interior, the concealed folding cup holder that popped out of the end of the dashboard in preceding models was substituted by a decent and more robust in-console design. The ignition switch was relocated from the lower part of the centre console up to the dashboard, next to the steering wheel and the Range Rover acquired the Range Rover Sport / LR3's Terrain Response system along with a remodelled four-wheel-drive control panel.

The handbrake is now electronic. Moreover, the seats vary from the old-fangled style, making the new Range Rover Sport with cooling fans elective on the HSE/Vogue and standard on the Vogue SE and Supercharged. Heated seats are standard on all versions and the premium seats from the BMW era are dropped.

The HVAC system is also upgraded with lots of vents and noiseless operation. That, together with the acoustic laminated windscreen diminishes the noise. A rise in the interior room is mainly ascribed to the new split-dual glove box. And then as an amendment to the earliest Range Rover styling, additional wood inserts have been attached to the centre console and doors. Halfway through the manufacture of the 2007 model, the design of the key was also changed from the BMW design to Land Rover's "switchblade" type.

The BMW M57 diesel engine was swapped for the year 2007 with the TDV8 engine made by Ford and Land Rover at Dagenham and Gaydon. The 3.6-litre AJD-V8 32-valve twin-turbo V8 engine delivers 272 hp (203 kW), a lot more than the 177 hp (132 kW) of the earlier engine and this power enables it to take care of the weighty vehicle. The highest speed is 124 mph, whilst it took just 8.6 seconds to reach 60 mph from rest and for a car having a kerb weight of almost 2.7 tons, it’s simply amazing. Torque is a significant 472 lb/ft (640Nm) at 2,000 rpm.

Other changes for 2007 comprise modified suspension, better brakes and Land Rover's Terrain Response system. Supercharged Range Rovers have an electronic rear differential which is optional on other models.

2010–2012 Land Rover Range Rover

For the 2010 model year reinvigorate, the Range Rover was presented with a new-fangled exterior grille, LED head/tail lights, bumpers, a multi-camera vision system, a couple of brand new engines comprising a 5.0 normally aspirated and 5.0 supercharged v8 engine, and a lot more. It was divulged at the 2009 New York Auto Show.

MY2010 Range Rover Vogue

On the inside, the Range Rover was given a tiny revamp, constituting greatly of reshaped and shifted switchgear (which saw many of the originally BMW era designed items updated or swapped), along with new alternatives never before offered for Range Rover.

The 2010 Range Rover also gained new visual display units as also seen in the new for 2010 Jaguar XJ (X351). This change involved a 12-inch TFT LCD virtual instrument panel, which substitutes the conservative cluster design. The virtual gauges are now on the display where physical analogue gauges were formerly.

This permits numerous sets of information to be presented as needed. For instance, navigation and map information can be demonstrated as a substitute for engine readouts, whilst when one of the off-road driving modes is chosen on the Terrain Response system, the 'gauges' are restructured to offer enough room to display the graphics of the vehicle's suspension, transmission and steering systems.

The other display unit is placed on the centre console and makes use of a bi-directional screen to display separate images hinged on viewing angle (may not be accessible in the US). This enables navigational information to be shown to the driver, whilst anyone on the front passenger seat can put the same screen into service to use the on-board DVD player simultaneously. This system also encompasses an advanced multi-camera system that enables the driver to examine the vehicle during manoeuvres and comprises several overlays and views.

The 2011 Range Rover models contain small design alterations, enhanced interiors and an improved 4x4 system along with new optional sets. A new 4.4-litre TDV8 diesel engine got accessible with a new ZF 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission. Also, this model got very decent leather and wood colours, over and above reclining rear seats with winged headrests. A new Autobiography Black model structures a distinct grille, Barolo Black paintwork, and a choice of Jet/Ivory or Jet/Pimento interiors.

Reconditioning Process Explained

Dismantling

Each engine is first stripped down to its bare components. Using specialist cleaning equipment (Kerosene bath and high temperature solvent washer) all engine components are degreased and thoroughly cleaned.

Machining

After disassembling the units they are then sent for machining where all engine block cylinders are professionally honed, All cylinder heads are pressure tested, skimmed, valve seats are cut and all valves are resurfaced.

Assembly

In assembly stage of the engine reconditioning process, brand new Eristic gaskets are used, ACL bearings are used for the mains and big ends and gas nitride piston rings are fitted to ensure quality parts are used throughout. Crankshaft journals are checked and measured to assess condition and then are polished or reground where necessary Also the engine is timed up with a brand new timing kit.

Quality Control

All throughout the assembly process strict quality control measures are enforced. All measurements are double checked to make sure the final product is reliable for years to come.
