Jaguar lineup underpinned by new 247-hp I4 engine

Jaguar F-Pace XF and XE ranges updated with new Ingenium engines

Following the announcement of the MY2018 Jaguar F-PACE and XE earlier today, Jaguar has also planned similar refreshments for the XF large luxury sedan.

First things first, the 3.0-liter V6 engine shared with the F-Type now delivers 380 horsepower in the 2018 XE S, thus making the sporty sedan 40 hp stronger than the previous model year.

The MY18 update introduces three new Ingenium engine options, including two 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder tunes and a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder. A 2.0 litre twin-turn petrol engine will be available in either 197bhp or 247bhp, with the Ingenium diesel coming in twin-turbo 237bhp.

The updates come on the back of a strong start to the year for Jaguar in the UK. With this new engine, the Jaguar SUV is called the F-PACE E-Performance. It's now available with the existing 161bhp Ingenium 2.0-litre diesel previously reserved for the XE, delivering Carbon dioxide emissions of 126g/km.

Buyers will also now be able to specify the new twin-turbo 240hp four-cylinder diesel in the F-Pace. The first is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol (pictured below) that produces 197bhp, and the second is a more potent version that produces 247bhp. The new diesel comes linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. In terms of performance, the F-Pace 25d is capable of 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds.

Diesel-wise, the 240 PS variant of the Ingenium diesel joins the existing 163 PS and 180 PS duo. In the F-Pace it delivers 365Nm torque and 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds, with Carbon dioxide emissions of 170g/km and fuel economy of 38.2mpg.

As well as engines, there are technology upgrades and boosted interior options across all three cars, including a new app for the infotainment system that lets you pay for petrol at Shell garages from the driving seat. The system is now available in the United Kingdom and will be rolled out to other markets over the course of the year.

The larger XF sedan takes an extra 0.4s to finish the triple figures dash, alongside a 6.8L/100km fuel economy rating and 154g/km of Carbon dioxide emissions.

JLR's family of Ingenium engines have been created to deliver exceptional performance, efficiency and refinement and meet the most stringent global emissions regulations. Unlike the 197bhp vehicle, all-wheel-drive is available, but results in a slight increase in exhaust emissions to 158g/km. Thus equipped, it'll return up to 53.3mpg and emit 139g/km of CO2. Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance systems also promise to make the three updated models safer than ever while a revised paint palette will improve their aesthetics.

Parent company Jaguar Land Rover is developing a whole range of in-house four and six cylinder engines, which offer a tempting mix of better emissions, thriftier economy and - often - punchier performance.

Order books are now open for the updated XE, XF and F-PACE line-ups in the UK. Upgrade to the 247bhp petrol engine and the 0-62mph time shrinks to 6.6 seconds, while economy remains the same - although Carbon dioxide emissions of 158g/km are enough to push this engine into the 28% BiK bracket.
