Jaguar Increases Availability of New Four-Cylinder
A trio of Jaguar models, including the New F-Pace SUV, is now available with a new 296 hp version of the company’s gasoline Ingenium engine.
Jaguar is making a new version of the Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline engine to the 18 model year XE and XF sedans, as well as the F-Pace performance SUV models.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine produces 296 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque enough for the F-Pace SUV to travel from 0-100 km/h in 6.0 seconds. In the Jaguar XF mid-size sedan the new engine delivers 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds in rear-wheel drive form.
For the XE sports sedan, the new engine delivers 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds for the all-wheel drive model.
The new four-cylinder engine, badged 30t, benefits from the latest Jaguar Land Rover engine technology, including twin-scroll turbos with ceramic ball bearings to reduce friction and a high flow compressor wheel for enhanced performance.
Paired with an advanced ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, this drivetrain delivers exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses.
For the XE and XF sedan models, customers can also choose between rear and all-wheel drive, while F-Pace models feature AWD as standard.
The introduction of the powerful new engine is the latest in a series of enhancements to the XE, XF and F-PACE. Further updates for the 2018 model year derivatives include available convenience features such as a Gesture Controlled Trunk Lid for the XE and XF.
All three models also benefit from the very latest driver assistance technologies including optional Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection.
