2018 Jaguar F-Pace, XF And XE Welcome Three New Ingenium Engines

The Jaguar F-Pace, XF and XE have all been updated ahead of the 2018 model year and welcome three engine Ingenium engines to the family.

Starting with the engines, there are two petrol powertrains and one diesel powerplant. The two petrol-powered engines both displace 2.0-liters and are available in 200 PS (197 hp) and 250 PS (246 hp) guises, the first of which will only be offered for the XE and XF.

As for the diesel, it is a 240 PS (236 hp) 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder that also pumps out an impressive 500 Nm of torque. This powertrain is the first Jaguar Land Rover engine to use two turbochargers and has been strengthened with updated pistons, crankshaft and improved fuel injectors. This engine will be offered for the 2018 F-Pace, XF and XE.

Beyond the new engines, the 2018 XF and XE will also be offered with the new Configurable Dynamics features. This system gives owners the ability to set up the vehicle to suit their personal driving preferences by selecting between Normal or Dynamic settings for the engine, gearbox and steering. Additionally, an ‘Adaptive Dynamics’ system is offered which allows the suspension to be configured in a number of different ways.

Elsewhere, 2018 F-Pace and XF models receive new headrests and Dual View technology which allows the driver and front passenger to view different things on the 10-inch touchscreen display. Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance systems also promise to make the three updated models safer than ever while a revised paint palette will improve their aesthetics.

All 2018 models are available to order immediately.

    Could you find out if the 18′ XE will get LED headlamps!?

    • Carenthusiast

      Nope, not till facelift which I reckon will be 2020

  • europeon

    Wow Jaguar, MY18 in early February 2017…

    • Vassilis

      I think VAG starts producing new MY cars in around the middle of the preceding year. So MY18 will start production half-way through 2017. Maybe other manufacturers do the same.

      • europeon

        Yes, most manufacturers start the next MY production around summer, but it’s February (assuming the article is correct).

        • Vassilis

          Well, you know, they receive and report the news earlier. Maybe JLR will start production in April or May in which case middle of February isn’t really that early.

    • Kax

      Umm, lots of MY 2018 vehicles have been announced already. Production won’t start until mid-year though.

    If the more powerful 2.0 replaces the 3.0 six, that’d be a real shame.
