Jaguar is placing three new Ingenium engines on the F-Pace crossover, XF saloon and XE sedan for the 2018 model year. According to Jaguar’s recent announcement, the updates will also be including new equipment and advanced technology.
As stated, there will be a 236 hp 2.0-liter twin turbo four-cylinder diesel engine for the 2018 F-Pace, XF and XE. This is the first time for a Jaguar Land Rover engine to be equipped with twin turbochargers along with newly updated fuel injectors, crankshaft and pistons to boot.
In line with this, Jaguar also offers two 2.0-liter petrol powertrains with either 197 hp or 246 hp engine performance. The 197 hp 2.0 liter petrol by all means is more practical for the compact XE range as compared with the much bigger XF saloon model. Except for the F-Pace, both XF and XE will be offered with a 197 hp 2.0-liter new engine.
The smaller power unit delivers up to 45.1 mpg fuel returns with as low as 144/km CO2 emissions on the XE sedan. Although the 247 hp 2.0-liter petrol provides the same amount of emissions and fuel consumption as with the 197 hp version, the difference basically depends on the how each engine performs.
Simply put, the 197 hp petrol engine can do a 0-62 mph in 7.1 seconds while the more powerful 247 hp can top its performance under 6.3 seconds.
Aside from the new line of powertrains, the upcoming year model of Jaguar XE and XF will be featuring the latest Configurable Dynamics. This feature lets the driver adjust the vehicle’s set-up according to his or her preferred way of driving.
The choice of settings includes Normal or Dynamic mode for the steering, gearbox as well as for the engine.
In addition, both XE and XF are now offered with Adaptive Dynamics technology for adjustable suspension set ups. All in all, the three new Jaguars will also have the latest technology for safety and convenience.
The upcoming crossover, sedan and luxury saloon will each feature a high definition 12.3 inch touch screen with Dual View technology, 3D navigation system, as well as new headrests for the seats.
If there is something else, the F-Pace, XF and XE will also be receiving the very convenient fuel payment technology. When refueling, this application lets the driver pay directly through the vehicle’s infotainment system at any Shell petrol stations. The three models are now on sale with prices starting at £28,295 for the XE, £32,490 for the XF and £34,730 for the F-Pace.
