    Looks like JLR have binned the V6 diesel and replaced it with a much more sensible in line 6 Ingenium lump.
    It is to be hoped that the cranks don't snap in this one.

    Looks good, as long as it gets regular oil changes.

    I'd of nabbed it! ;)

    The 4pot in the classic was a nice motor, head and shoulders above the 200tdi that replaced it!!

    From an engineering standpoint I would have thought an in-line 6 would be more likely to snap a crank than a V.
    Go on then, someone versed in modern LR junk enlighten me ;)

    Inline or v makes absolutely no difference. The v6 is just a poor design with a weak Web and questionable bearing location.

    Certainly more torsional stress on the longer crank, straight 8's were a problem. In modern times it's just poor design that leads to breakages.

    Thanks for that, the S8 problem is what led me to post my thoughts.
    Poor design? from LR … surely not :rolleyes:
