Jaguar has revealed details of a new 300PS Ingenium petrol engine destined for the XE and XF saloons and F-Pace SUV.
Paired with Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine produces 400Nm of torque and features twin-scroll turbochargers with ceramic ball bearings to reduce friction and a high flow compressor wheel for enhanced performance.
In the Jaguar XF business saloon the new engine delivers a 5.6 second dash to 62mph with CO2emissions of 163g/km and fuel economy of 40mpg.
The XE sports saloon delivers a 5.5 second time for the same benchmark, with fuel economy of 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 157g/km.
Jaguar Land Rover’s product engineering executive director Nick Rogers said: “We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before.
"Our new 300PS petrol engine provides the performance synonymous with Jaguar, while delivering enhanced fuel economy thanks to its state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design.
"This clean and more efficient engine perfectly complements the advanced lightweight aluminium body structure of our XE, XF and F-PACE models.”
Further updates for the 2018 model year derivatives include added convenience features such as a Gesture Boot Lid for the XF and XE, as well as Jaguar’s Configurable Dynamics technology.
This allows drivers to personalise the automatic gearbox, throttle and steering settings to suit their personal preference.
All three models also benefit from the very latest safety technologies including forward vehicle guidance and forward traffic detection.
