INTELLIGENT PERFORMANCE

The Jaguar XE has engines equipped with Stop/Start technology and smart regenerative charging — harvesting kinetic energy from braking to charge the battery — which are especially helpful during city driving.

THE INGENIUM RANGE

Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover's new breed of engine designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency. With advanced technology and all-aluminum construction, Ingenium delivers impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

INGENIUM GASOLINE

The XE offers a choice of gas engines, including two from our Ingenium range. These 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, turbocharged Ingenium gasoline engines — with outputs of either 247 hp or 296 hp — deliver outstanding usable power and torque. With their lightweight design and widespread use of low-friction roller bearings, they are built for smooth, highly efficient performance.

INGENIUM DIESEL

The 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine offered on 20d models also comes from our Ingenium range. Computer-controlled adaptive engine cooling only engages as required. The latest generation variable geometry turbocharger maximizes peak power for low-speed torque and responsiveness.

Jaguar 3.0-Liter V6 Supercharged Gasoline Engine

F-TYPE-INSPIRED SUPERCHARGED V6

Shared with the F-TYPE, the 3.0-liter, 380 hp supercharged V6 engine standard with the XE S delivers instant access to high levels of performance and torque at all engine speeds, as well as refinement. It is capable of 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.3

ENGINE RANGE

ENGINE:
Jaguar Ingenium Diesel Engine

INGENIUM 2.0-LITER, 4-CYLINDER 180 HP TURBOCHARGED DIESEL

The Ingenium 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder 180 hp turbocharged diesel offers impressive performance and economy. For an engine of this size it offers high levels of torque, but not at the expense of efficiency — a balance achieved thanks to its variable geometry turbocharger. Adapting to the changing flow of exhaust gases, it maximizes low-speed torque for broad power and responsiveness that is uniform, progressive and avoids lag.

Jaguar 2.0-Liter 4-Cylinder Turbocharged Ingenium Gasoline Engine

INGENIUM 2.0-LITER, 4-CYLINDER 247 HP TURBOCHARGED GAS

The 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged gas engine by Ingenium delivers outstanding torque and 247 horsepower. For excellent acceleration and effortless passing, maximum torque is available between 1,300–4,500 rpm. This engine’s twin scroll turbocharger is fed by an integrated exhaust manifold that synchronizes exhaust pulses from two separate pairs of cylinders, significantly reducing turbo lag and improving engine response.

Jaguar Ingenium Diesel Engine

INGENIUM 2.0-LITER, 4-CYLINDER, 296 HP TURBOCHARGED GAS

The Ingenium 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 296 hp turbocharged gasoline engine’s impressive power is balanced with light weight. For almost instant boost, its low inertia twin-scroll turbocharger features low-friction ball bearings and a high-flow compressor wheel. Underpinned by the turbocharger’s increased aerodynamic efficiency, the engine delivers rapid acceleration and maximum torque of 295 lb-ft between 1,500-4,500 rpm.

Jaguar 3.0-Liter V6 Supercharged Gasoline Engine

3.0-LITER, 380 HP SUPERCHARGED V6 GAS

This uprated 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine exploits the spray-guided direct injection system. By carefully managing the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber, the engine can achieve its high specific power outputs and potent performance. The supercharger uses sophisticated, electronically supervised boost control for lag-free bursts of power.
