Jaguar XE powertrain info


Jaguar's ceaseless excitement around its new family of 'Ingenium' diesel engines can perhaps be forgiven. After all, it isn't every day that a new £500m, 100,000sq m engine factory opens to build powertrains for a Jaguar's new compact executive challenger.

Facing the best that Audi, BMW and Mercedes can produce necessitates some very good powertrains. The numbers now confirmed for the XE diesels really do deliver on Jaguar's 'benchmark efficiency' claims; the headline-grabbing 99g/km, 75mpg lower-powered diesel matches a 320d Efficient Dynamics on power and torque exactly (163hp/280lb ft). A 180hp/317lb ft version of the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel will rival the 'regular' 184hp 320d. For reference the comparable C-Class is 170hp/295lb ft combined with 64.2mpg and 109g/km. If you really, really still want an A4 instead then a 2.0 TDI 163 Ultra is 163hp/295lb ft plus 64mpg/114g/km. And we solemnly promise to never be so diesel obsessed ever again.

As clean sheet designs sharing nothing with existing JLR diesels the Ingenium units should be exemplary. To that end the engines are all-aluminium with twin balancer shafts to minimise vibration. Refinement is really being pushed with an acoustic sump cover, decoupled injectors and 0.5mm ovality on the inj... it'll be a quiet diesel, let's leave it at that. Of course they also comply with every emissions regulation going as well

Obviously the Ingenium engines will be the most popular in the UK (this diesel discussion is all for you, see) and launched in the XE alongside the 2.0-litre turbo petrol and F-Type sourced supercharged V6. Let's hope the next powertrain story on the XE features is rather more PH. And mentions a V8.

    Although not in the market for something like this at all, I must say those numbers are quite impressive...

    Really tempted by a new one of these next year.

    Man maths says that the saving in fuel alone over my current daily driver would pretty much pay for the lease/finance payments....

    Lets see what the real world number are, not what the manufacturers claims / makes up !

    Indeed, I'm doing my man-maths on a slightly more conservative 55mpg average. which may still be a little optimistic.

    The one figure all company car drivers are looking at is the CO2. That's what will make or break this car in the fleet market for Jaguar. I won't say the mpg is irrelevant, but every company car driver starts their sums off with the CO2, not the mpg.
