As Jaguar look to give their customers so much more, the 2.0-litre 300PS four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine has even better acceleration as it produces 400Nm of torque right from the start - enough power to take the World Car of the Year-winning F-PACE from 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds with fuel economy of 37mpg.
Drivers of the Jaguar XF business saloon will find that their new engine delivers 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds with CO2emissions of 163g/km and fuel economy of 40mpg - proving that you can have impressive performance allied to notable efficiency.
And for those of you who are drawn to the XE sports saloon, the new engine delivers even more impressive figures. The 0-60mph sprint takes only 5.2 seconds whilst offering fuel economy of 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 157g/km - enough to make sure that its strong eco credentials remain not only intact, but also imposing.
Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering at Jaguar, is a happy man: "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."
The new four-cylinder engine is manufactured at the £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, and is the grateful recipient of 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. Pairing this with Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the drivetrain delivers exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses.
The introduction of the powerful new engine is another step forward for Jaguar as they search for the ultimate in performance - a search that started earlier this year with the XE and XF offering more choice with their range of advanced Ingenium engines being expanded to include 200PS versions of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, and all three getting a 250PS version as well as a 240PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin turbo diesel engine.
All three models also benefit from the very latest safety technologies including Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection, and there's more to come in 2018 with newer models adding in convenience features such as a Gesture Boot Lid for the XF and XE, as well as Jaguar’s Configurable Dynamics technology - technology that will allow drivers to personalise the automatic gearbox, throttle and steering settings to suit their personal preference.
