Previewing The 2017 Jaguar XE Powertrains
The 2017 Jaguar XE powertrains are still about a year away from being available here at Jaguar Freeport, but a few lucky critics have already gotten to take the XE for a spin and have some thoughts on what we can expect from the engine. We’ve got a quick rundown of what we know so far about the 2017 Jaguar XE powertrain options, and from everything we’ve heard, these will be the engines to beat in the luxury car world.
Two Engines at Launch
There will be two 2017 Jaguar XE powertrains to choose from when the vehicle launches:
- The 2017 XE 20d will feature a 2.0L turbodiesel four-cylinder engine with 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission (with all-wheel drive available).
- The 2017 XE 35t, on the other hand, has a 3.0L supercharged V6 like the one found on the Jaguar F-TYPE. ON the XE, this powertrain will be rated at 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, and Jaguar has a 0 to 60 mph time of just 4.9 seconds with a 155 mph top speed.
The Jaguar XE 20d will be the first diesel Jaguar offered in the United States, and we are excited to see this highly efficient engine bring its massive low-end torque to our dealership.
While we’re still waiting on all of the details, both the 35t and 20d will be available with Premium, Prestige, and R-Sport trims, with the R-Sport representing a sport-tuned model with unique black accents and a more aggressive look and feel.
Four-Cylinder Ingenium Engine?
There are plenty of rumors circulating of the new gasoline four-cylinder Ingenium engine, but we still don’t know if it’s making its way stateside. Industry analysts are predicting that it will join the Jaguar lineup after the initial debut, but it might not be for some time. It’s expected that this turbocharged four-cylinder engine would produce as much as 240 hp in the XE.
