Jaguar's new 'Ingenium' family of modular turbocharged engines, which will include both diesel and gasoline variants, and will be configured for a wide range of applications.
The Jaguar XE will receive the AJ200D engine. Engineers have reduced internal friction by 17 percent compared to the current engine. This was done through roller bearings on cam and balancer shafts. Computer-controlled cooling enables quick warmups and faster cabin heat.
So the Ingenium engines are supposed to be lighter than its predecessors, saving up to 176 lbs depending on the specific configuration. The engine should contribute to the excellent fuel efficiency of the Jaguar XE, which could see a fuel efficiency rating as high as 55 mpg.
Jaguar Land Rover powertrain engineering director Ron Lee said,
Eventually the Ingenium family of engines will be rolled out across the company's entire line of cars and SUVs."Being configurable and flexible are the two key strands of Ingenium's DNA because we have future-proofed our new engines from the outset... Ingenium will be able to accept new advances in fuel, turbocharging, emissions, performance and electrification technologies when they are ready and accessible to be deployed."
