Jaguar XE to get engine from F-Type
from Jaguar will be available with the same supercharged V6 engine that is used in the
F-type sports car
when it goes on sale next year.
It was previously reported that Jaguar would only use its new range of 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engines – currently referred to as the 'Ingenium' family – on its
official UK website has now, though, confirmed the model will also be available with the same supercharged 3.0-litre V6 engine seen in the F-type V6 and V6S models. The engine produces 335bhp in V6 convertible guise, propelling the F-Type to 100kph in 5.1 seconds.
In higher-powered V6S form, the engine produces 375bhp, dropping the F-Type's 0-100kph sprint time to 4.8 seconds.
The XE is expected to use a new high-tech aluminium platform, and sit underneath the XF in Jaguar's range.
A company spokesman confirmed the power unit would be offered, and that further details would be released ahead of the XE going on sale.
