Jaguar has revealed that the newest member of its Ingenium engine family is a 2.0 litre turbo petrol unit that will develop 221kW and 400Nm of torque.

The engine will be fitted to the XE, XF and F-Pace model families, and Jaguar promises sub six second 0-100 times for all models, along with commendable fuel efficiency.

The Jaguar XE with the new Ingenium engine will power to 100km/h from standstill in a rapid 5.7 seconds, and will average 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The XF will do the same sprint in 5.9 seconds and consume 6.8 litres of petrol per 100 kilometres and the F-Pace SUV will do the same dash in six seconds dead, and will consume 7.7 litres per 100 kilometres.

The new Ingenium engine will be mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic, and customers will  be able to specify XE and XF models with rear or all-wheel drive. The F-Pace with the new engine will be rear wheel drive only.

The new engine will form part of the 2018 facelift for the XE, XF and F-Pace models, which will also gain Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection, along with a gesture-controlled boot lid on the XE and XF along with Jaguar’s Configurable dynamics technology, which allows drivers to tailor the car’s transmission, throttle and steering to their personal needs.

The new 221kW version of the Ingenium engine joins the 147kW fitted to the XE and XF, a 184kW version of the petrol engine and a 177kW twin turbo Ingenium diesel.

“We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before. Our new 221kW petrol engine provides the performance synonymous with Jaguar, while delivering enhanced fuel economy thanks to its state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design. This clean and more efficient engine perfectly complements the advanced lightweight aluminium body structure of our XE, XF and F-PACE models.”
