Jaguar XE now with new 300 PS Ingenium petrol engine
The most powerful four-pot Ingenium turbo petrol engine from the Jaguar F-Type makes it to the XE, XF and F-Pace.
In the smallest XE, Jaguar promises a 0-100 km/h time of 5.7 seconds and fuel consumption of 6.7 l/100km, the larger XF completes the same sprint in 5.9 seconds with fuel usage of 6.8 l/100km, while the F-Pace takes 6.0 seconds for the 0-100 km/h run and uses an official 7.7 l/100km. The engine is exclusively mated to Jaguar's eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The saloons are quicker, the XF hitting 62mph in 5.6 seconds and the XE 5.5, with both also returning 40mpg or more.
The F-Pace sports a fuel consumption figure of 7.7L/100km and Carbon dioxide emissions of 174g/km.
Alongside the introduction of the new engine option, Jaguar has tinkered with the equipment and technology on-board all three models for the 2018 model year. The 0-60mph sprint takes only 5.2 seconds, while fuel economy of 41.5mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions of 157g/km ensure its strong eco credentials remain intact. "Our new 296-hp gasoline 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".

If Red Bull can capitalise on their new-found pace, it will make the present drivers' standings chart absolutely unpredictable. Max Verstappen retained the top spot in Friday evening's practice, despite crashing in the final minute of the session.

Fixed an issue where Barq (of Byte & Barq) does a big warp when riding the snakeboard and finishing a special move rush. Nintendo's delightful boxing game Arms has a new trick up its spiraled sleeves with the addition of LAN support.
Jaguar Land Rover has expanded its Ingenium engine range with the addition of a 300hp unit. "This clean and more efficient engine perfectly complements the advanced lightweight aluminium body structure of our models", said product engineering chief Nick Rogers.
Additionally, the XE will be offered with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, while the XF and F-Pace will add enhanced electric front seats with adjustable headrests and side-wing supports.
The engine's impact is felt most in the XE - the lightest and smallest vehicle of the trio.
Models with the new engine will carry the 30t badge and will produce 295 lb-ft of torque.
