Jaguar treats the XE, XF & F-Pace to another Ingenium engine image

Another entry in the Ingenium engine family, the new engine version is a 2.0 turbo four in line with almost 300 hp, coming atop the previously introduced 200-hp and 250-hp versions.

Jaguar Land Rover is making the most of its investment into the new Ingenium family of engines, treating a triumvirate of Jaguar’s core models in the range – the XE, XF, and F-Pace – to a new version of the 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. It comes with 296 horsepower (222 kilowatts) and a peak torque of 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters). “We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before,” notes Nick Rogers, Executive Director, product engineering. “Our new 296-hp gasoline 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.”

When fitted to the compact XE sedan, it will propel the car to 62 mph (100 kph) in 5.5 seconds for the all-wheel drive system versions. The larger XF sedan sprints to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) in 5.8 seconds, while the heavier F-Pace SUV will reach the same speed in six seconds flat. Jaguar Land-Rover’s ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and the new 30t-badged engine comes with “exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses.”
