Ford engine plant Bridgend closure.

Is the 4.4 tdV8 made at Bridgend ?, and if so, does it mark the end of JLR using it in L405’s ?

As I understand it, Bridgend is closing because JLR won’t be taking any engines after 2020, so presumably it will all be Ingenium derivatives from then on, including a straight 6. No doubt others know more

No, the V8 comes from Chihuahua https://corporate.ford.com/company/plant-d...plant.html

Which is presumably why JLR have developed the ingenium range so they aren’t reliant on outside supply. The lack of a V8 in either diesel or petrol form is probably down to the increase in power available from the smaller engines. Also the incorporation of the ingenium into the P400/hybrid power train is probably supposed to supplant the diesel.... There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜
