Pretoria - Jaguar is introducing a new 221kW Ingenium petrol engine to the XE and XF sedans and F-Pace performance SUV models.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine produces 400Nm of torque. The automaker claims the F-Pace will reach 0-100km/h in 6.0 seconds and deliver fuel economy of 7.7 litre/100km.

In the XF, Jag says the new engine will power the sedan from 0-100km/h in 5.9 seconds.

Jaguar hopes to cash in on the SUV craze with its new E-Pace

For the XE sports sedan, the new engine delivers even more impressive figures. The 0-100km/h sprint takes only 5.7 seconds, while fuel economy of 6.7 litre/100km) and CO2 emissions of 153g/km, the automaker claims. 

The new four-cylinder engine, badged P300, benefits from the latest Jaguar Land Rover engine technology, including twin-scroll turbos with ceramic ball bearings to reduce friction and a high flow compressor wheel for enhanced performance. 

All three models use the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. 

The introduction of the powerful new engine is the latest in a series of enhancements to the XE, XF and F-Pace. Earlier this year, the range of advanced Ingenium engines expanded to include a 184kW version of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. A 177kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin turbo diesel was also introduced on the XF and the F-Pace.

Further updates for the 2018 model year derivatives include added convenience features such as a Gesture Boot Lid for the XF and XE, as well as configurable dynamics technology. This allows drivers to personalise the automatic gearbox, throttle and steering settings to suit their personal preference.

All three models also benefit from the very latest safety technologies including forward vehicle guidance and Forward Traffic Detection.
