Jaguar is introducing an all-new efficient and powerful 296HP version of the Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline engine to the 18MY XE and XF sedans, as well as the F-PACE performance SUV models.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine produces 295-lb.ft. of torque for exceptional acceleration. That’s enough to power the F-PACE to travel from 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds with fuel economy of up to 25mpg highway.
In the Jaguar XF mid-size sedan the new engine delivers 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds in rear-wheel drive form with a fuel economy of 28mpg highway.
For the XE sports sedan, the new engine delivers similar figures. The 0-60mph sprint takes 5.2 seconds for the all-wheel drive model with a highway fuel economy rating of 28mpg.
“We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before. Our new 296HP petrol engine provides the performance synonymous with Jaguar, while delivering fuel efficiency thanks to its state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design,” said Nick Rogers, executive director, Product Engineering. “This clean and more efficient engine perfectly complements the advanced lightweight aluminum body structure of our XE, XF and F-PACE models.”
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. The new engine is manufactured at the Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton, UK.
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. Earlier this year the range of advanced Ingenium engines expanded to include a 247HP version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine.
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.
