Including the first diesel Jag in the US
The two launch models of the 2017 Jaguar XE in America will be the XE 20d and the XE 35t. The 20d is powered by a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder that’s part of Jaguar Land Rover’s new Ingenium engine family. It makes 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque, pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and offers all-wheel drive as an option. This model will be the first diesel Jaguar has ever sold in the U.S., and will compete with cars like the BMW 328d.
Available in Premium, Prestige and R-Sport trims.The 2017 Jaguar XE 35t comes with a more familiar powertrain, namely the 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 currently found in the Jaguar F-Type and XF. It makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque in this application, and, like the diesel, pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive. Jaguar estimates that the 35t will sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 155 mph.
