Jaguar made quite a buzz when it unveiled the XE compact sedan last month but the United States will have to wait a little bit more to get its hands on the new vehicle. According to Jaguar, the XE will hit the United States dealerships in 2016 as a 2017 model year vehicle because the US executives wanted some features available from the start.

Jaguar will offer the XE as standard with rear-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission but U.S. executives want the XE fitted with a four-cylinder diesel engine as well as with all-wheel drive.

There are no details regarding the four- and six-cylinder engines offered by the XE in the United State, but we do know that in Europe the vehicle will get the 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesels generating 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque of 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque.

Both versions return a fuel economy of just 3.8 l/100 km. Jaguar also offers the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 200 hp and 280 Nm of torque or 240 hp and 430 Nm of torque.

The most powerful version will get a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine found also on the F-Type that develops 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque. As a result, the XE S accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h.
