The new Jaguar XE compact sedan will be the first model to debut the new Ingenium four-cylinder engine family, which will be offered in a number of configurations.
To begin, Jaguar will offer two 2.0L turbodiesel variants. The first will produce 161 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, while the second will offer 177 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. Both engines feature variable exhaust valve timing, cooled low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation, and selective catalytic reduction technologies to help meet the upcoming Euro 6 emission standards.
The chances that the U.S. will get one of diesel engines are very slim since the automaker doesn't offer any diesel engines in their current lineup. But Jaguar also gave some basic specs on their gasoline counterparts. Like the diesel engines, the gas engines will displace 2.0 liters and come turbocharged. The base engine will offer 197 horsepower and 206 pound-feet, while the other engine will offer 236 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque.
Jaguar will offer a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic for the XE powertrains, though the U.S. will likely get the eight-speed automatic only.
