Jaguar unveils new derivative additions

Jaguar has introduced a new 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel with six-speed manual transmission to the X-type range.

The new engine takes the number of diesel X-type models to four and Jaguar's diesel range to five, with a sixth soon to be announced in the form of the new XJ Diesel.

Along side the new 2.2D, the existing 2.0D has been re-engineered for the new model year, and like the new 2.2 now features electrically controlled variable vane geometry for improved turbocharger control and immediate throttle response. As a result, all Jaguar’s X-type diesel engines comply with stringent Euro Stage IV emission requirements – ahead of the date required by legislation.

The new X-type 2.2D will go on sale from September. Prices have yet to be announced.

Jaguar reveals special edition S-type

Jaguar has today announced the introduction of a new S-type 2.5 litre Plus Special Edition.

Available from May, the S-Type 2.5 litre Plus model features new 'Plus' specifications, with prices starting at £25,995.

This model is the run out edition of the 2.5 litre petrol engine in the S-type which will be deleted from the range after May production, following the introduction of the S-type diesel.

This new Plus Special Edition is available as a 2.5 litre Plus, 2.5 litre SE Plus and a 2.5 litre Sport Plus.

Standard specification on all models includes: cruise control, Climate Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Park Brake (EPB), automatic headlights, manually adjustable headlight levelling, heated rear windscreen with wipers, power assisted steering, trip computer, and Alpine sound equipment.

Jaguar considers crossover model

Jaguar is considering whether to expand its model line-up by offering a ‘crossover" vehicle, its top executive said today, according to

"I think what is loosely defined as the crossover segment has rather more potential for us than an SUV, where we already have good competitors," says Joe Greenwell, chairman and chief executive of Ford brands Jaguar and Land Rover.
