DIESEL VS. GAS

INFORMING YOUR DECISION

A CHOICE OF ENGINES

We offer a range of diesel and gas engines but you might not be sure which is the right one for you. The choice of engines we have available allows you to match your lifestyle and the types of journeys you most regularly undertake.

WHAT KIND OF DRIVER ARE YOU?

  • Near empty tree-lined city street.

    INTRA CITY

    If you use your vehicle for short journeys within a city, such as school or shopping, then a gas engine would be a suitable choice. You would rarely drive on the highway and do minimal mileage, mainly in built-up areas.

  • Empty multi-lane highway.

    INTER CITY

    For high-mileage drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on the highway and rarely travelling within the city, a diesel engine would be a considered option.

  • Empty country road.

    TOWN AND COUNTRY

    For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by highway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration.

  • Empty winding road on side of mountain from above.

    PLEASURE DRIVE

    If you love driving mainly for pleasure on country roads and rarely in urban environments, then either a gas or diesel engine would suit you.

KEY FACTS

  • Jaguar E-PACE.

    INGENIUM DIESEL ENGINES

    Our new Ingenium diesel engines are among the most fuel-efficient engines we have ever built. The 180-horsepower engine in the Jaguar XE sedan can achieve as high as 42 EPA-estimated highway mpg.2

    NITROGEN OXIDES

    All our vehicles feature advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)) which helps to reduce NOX emissions.

  • Jaguar XF in Motion.

    DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTERS

    Highly efficient DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) in our vehicles capture exhaust particulate matter (also known as soot).
