Jaguar XE

When Jaguar lifted the veil on its new XE sports sedan earlier this month, it only revealed details on one engine – that being the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 in the flagship XE S. But we already knew that the British automaker’s new entry-level model will offer many other powertrain options, and now it has revealed a little more.

Jaguar has been developing a new family of 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines it calls Ingenium, which will be offered in a wide array of configurations and specifications. In advance of its debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, the Leaping Cat marque has announced the specifications of the two diesel versions. The first will offer 161 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque and some of the best environmental credentials on the market. There will also be a more potent version with 177 hp and 317 lb-ft, which Jaguar says is “one of the highest torque outputs in the class.” Either way, both versions feature variable exhaust valve timing, cooled low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalytic reduction technologies to help meet the stringent Euro 6 standards.

That’s all well and fine, but considering that Jaguar doesn’t offer diesels in North America, the chances of these oil-burners making their way to Canada seem slim. But if you watch the video below, you’ll also find basic specs on their gasoline counterparts as well. Like the diesels, they’re turbocharged and displace 2.0 litres, but in petrol form, they offer 197 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque, or 236 hp and 250 lb-ft.

Though we’re only likely to get the automatic version in North America, globally speaking Jaguar will offer both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. Whatever the specification, though, the new engines are set to roll off the line at the company’s new plant in the West Midlands at a rate as high as one every 36 seconds, should the demand exist.
