Jaguar XF V6 Diesel S

Jaguar developed the new XF V6 Diesel S, a model that combines great performance and incredible fuel economy. To prove it, know that it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and tit can reach a top speed of 155 mph. The average fuel consumption is 42 mpg and the CO2 emission level can reach 179 g/km. The British specialists have revealed it last year and it was recognized as a dramatic expression of a bold new Jaguar design language. It receives power from a new high-performance diesel engine capable of generating 275 PS. There is an equally impressive 240 PS version of the new 3.0-liter engine available too, which produces 16% more power and a 15 % increase in torque over the 2.7-liter diesel. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds and to reach a top speed of 149 mph. The two cylinder heads, with four valves per cylinder, are made from aluminum and the cylinder block is made from compact graphite iron. The new water-cooled, exhaust gas recirculation system, important from reducing pumping losses and emissions of NOx in a diesel engine, is more efficient and consumes less power than the 2.7-liter unit. Since the EGR cooling is so effective, exhaust glasses can bypass the system and return to the exhaust pipes, allowing faster engine warm-up from start-up and reducing emissions still further. If you really want to know, EU5 emissions regulations have been achieved ahead of the 2011 legislative timetable using conventional diesel oxidation catalysts and diesel particulate filters. Internal friction, a major contributor to unnecessary fuel consumption, has been addressed by careful optimization to the crankshaft, valves and pistons. All these elements combine to make the new AJ-V6D Gen III engines amongst the quietest premium diesels on the market.
