ENGINE TECHNOLOGY

XE’s power is delivered by a range of highly advanced petrol and diesel engines.

PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY

Whether you choose our latest hi-tech Ingenium diesel engines or you prefer petrol, each one offers performance, refinement and economy to suit every driving style.

INTELLIGENT PERFORMANCE

XE’s engines are equipped with Stop/Start technology* and smart regenerative charging – harvesting kinetic energy from braking to charge the battery - for maximum economy, especially during urban driving.

INGENIUM FAMILY

THE INGENIUM RANGE

Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover's new breed of engine designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency. With advanced technology and all-aluminium construction Ingenium delivers impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

INGENIUM FAMILY

INGENIUM PETROL

XE’s new 2.0 litre 4-cylinder Turbocharged Ingenium Petrol engines deliver outstanding usable power and torque. With their lightweight design and widespread use of low-friction roller bearings, they are built for smooth, highly efficient performance.

INGENIUM FAMILY

INGENIUM DIESEL

Ingenium technology underpins the diesel engine in the XE range. These low friction, all - aluminium engines have stiff cylinder blocks and twin balancer shafts to ensure inherently low levels of vibration, for smooth day – to – day performance. All engines are equipped with Stop/Start technology* and smart regenerative charging – harvesting kinetic energy from braking to charge the battery – for maximum economy, especially during urban driving.

PERFORMANCE ENGINES

The 3.0 litre 280kW Supercharged Petrol engine has been adapted for the specific requirements of XE. A Roots-type twin vortex supercharger is mounted in the ‘V' between the two rows of cylinders for compact dimensions. It provides linear delivery of power and maximises responsiveness of the engine’s torque.

ENGINE RANGE

ENGINE:

INGENIUM 2.0 LITRE 4-CYLINDER 132kW TURBOCHARGED DIESEL

The Ingenium 2.0 litre 4-cylinder 132kW Turbocharged Diesel offers impressive performance and economy. For an engine of this size it offers high levels of torque, but not at the expense of efficiency – a balance achieved thanks to its variable geometry turbocharger. Adapting to the changing flow of exhaust gases, it maximises low speed torque for broad power and responsiveness that is uniform, progressive and avoids lag.

0-100 km/h; 7.8 seconds (Manual); 7.8 seconds (Automatic)

Fuel Economy (Combined): 4.2 l/100km (Manual); 4.2 l/100km (Automatic)

CO2 Emissions: 109g/km (Manual) ; 109-111g/km (Automatic)

INGENIUM 2.0 LITRE 4-CYLINDER 184kW TURBOCHARGED PETROL

The Ingeniun 2.0 litre 4-cylinder 184kW Turbocharged Petrol engine delivers outstanding usable power and torque. For excellent acceleration and effortless overtaking, maximum torque is available between 1,300-4,500 rpm. This engine’s twin scroll turbocharger is fed by an integrated exhaust manifold that synchronises exhaust pulses from two separate pairs of cylinders – significantly reducing turbo lag and improving engine response.

0-100 km/h; 6.3 seconds (Automatic)

Fuel Economy (Combined): 6.3 l/100km (Automatic)

CO2 Emissions: ; 144g/km (Automatic)

3.0 LITRE V6 280kW SUPERCHARGED PETROL

This uprated 3.0 litre V6 Supercharged 280kW exploits the spray guided direct injection system to extract more energy from the fuel. By carefully managing the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber, the engine can achieve its high specific power outputs and potent performance. Mounted in the ‘V’ of the engine, the compact, twin vortex supercharger uses sophisticated, electronically supervised boost control for efficiency and lag-free bursts of power.

0-100 km/h; 4.8 seconds (Automatic)

Fuel Economy (Combined): 8.1 l/100km (Automatic)

CO2 Emissions: ; 194g/km (Automatic)

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

Delivering rapid shifting for effortless acceleration, XE's 8-speed Automatic transmission is highly responsive, smooth and efficient. Featuring a contemporary Satin Black rotary selector – the transmission offers even quicker shifts and sportier kick-down in Dynamic Mode, and earlier up-shifts in Eco Mode. You can also opt to manually control gearshifts, via steering wheel paddles, at the touch of a finger.

The XE range combines performance, advanced technology and distinctive design, all underpinned by the Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. Create your perfect XE with our configurator.
