Jaguar has revealed the details of the series of Ingenium diesel engines that are going to be offered with the yet-to-be-launched 2015 Jaguar XE. The new XE had its world premiere around 10 days back in the UK and now it would also be showcased at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. As know, this saloon would be the most fuel economical Jaguar vehicle built till date.
The Ingenium range is produced at the new ?500 million, 100,000m2 Engine Manufacturing Centre in the West Midlands in the UK. Starting from a clean sheet meant that Jaguar’s powertrain engineers could make the Ingenium engines as light and efficient as possible, and deliver the blend of power, torque and smoothness customers expect. These state-of-the-art engines were proven over 2 million miles of real-world testing. Ron Lee, Group Chief Powertrain Engineer, Jaguar said, “The new generation of Ingenium diesel engines are wholly designed and manufactured in-house. No opportunity has been missed in ensuring their design is right on the cutting edge of technical advancement.”
The new XE will feature two versions of the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel. The first, rated at 163PS/380Nm, delivers benchmark efficiency figures of 75mpg and 99g/km CO2 without any compromise to launch performance or mid-range acceleration. The 180PS/430Nm variant has one of the highest torque outputs in the class. The low friction, all-aluminium units have stiff cylinder blocks and twin balancer shafts to ensure inherently low levels of vibration. Details such as the acoustic sump cover, decoupled injectors, and 0.5mm ovality on the injection pump drive sprocket contribute to the Ingenium’s exceptional quietness. The Ingenium diesels will be joined at launch by powerful, efficient, direct-injection petrol engines: turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinders and the outstanding supercharged 3.0-litre V6.
