Jaguar’s all-new XE sedan, revealed earlier this month, will debut with not one but two versions of the company’s Ingenium diesel engines.
Already confirmed is a 120kW/380Nm tune for the 2.0 litre diesel, and this week Jaguar has announced the addition of a more powerful 132kW/430Nm version.
The diesel mills will be offered alongside the already announced turbocharged petrol versions of the Ingenium engine, along with a hero 250kW supercharged V6.
All three engine types will be matched to an eight-speed auto, and in supercharged V6 form, Jaguar promises a 0-100km/h time of 4.9 seconds.
Fuel consumption figures for the full range are still to be revealed, although Jaguar claims the diesel will be capable of returning consumption figures as low as 4.2 l/100km.
Jaguar says it has so far tested the new UK-built engines over more than two million kilometres of real-world driving on public roads.
“The new generation of Ingenium diesel engines are wholly designed and manufactured in-house,” Jaguar engine boss Ron Lee says.
“No opportunity has been missed in ensuring their design is right on the cutting edge of technical advancement.”
Jaguar’s new Ingenium engines will be built at the company’s new centre in the UK, where the company expects to pump out an engine every 36 seconds.
The new XE is expected to hit Australia in the third quarter of 2015.
