Jaguar’s saloons gain the company’s new indigenously developed ‘Ingenium’ petrol engine.
Jaguar has introduced the updated petrol versions of its XE and XF saloons in India. The cars are powered by the company’s new Ingenium petrol engine.
Jaguar’s indigenously developed engine effectively replaces the earlier Ford-sourced petrol powertrain in both XE and XF. The new engine in question is a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo-petrol unit that’s offered in two separate tune states. In the lower Prestige trims of XE and XF, the motor pumps 197bhp of power and 320Nm of torque. In the higher Portfolio trims of both cars, those figures get amped up to 247bhp and 365Nm.
The new engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. As per JLR, the new Ingenium petrol engines use low friction all-aluminium intensive design to provide better thermal properties and lightweight construction for improved efficiency and enhanced vehicle dynamics. The new petrol unit, in both tune states, also deploys twin scroll turbos to reduce lag, thus optimising power output and efficiency.
The new petrol XE starts from Rs. 35.99 lakh, while the petrol XF begins at Rs. 49.80 lakh (both ex-showroom, Mumbai). Both cars are now available for purchase through all 27 Jaguar retail outlets in India.
