It seems that Jaguar is preparing new engines for its North American clients. Apparently there is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder available, but also a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 gasoline. This idea came as a response to the needs of their clients. Most customers look for lighter and more CO2 emission efficient power-trains and here is where the British specialists show us their talent. If we actually think carefully, the last time the premium carmaker offered a V6 for its US customers was four years ago in their X-Type and a 4-cylinder one, back in 1948.
Now, for example, in North America, Jaguar only offers naturally-aspirated and supercharged V8 engines. The 2.0-liter I4 engine with direct-fuel injection is capable of developing 240 horsepower and it will be used to power the 2012 MY XF. This model will have as competitor the German BMW 528i which is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged capable of producing 240 horsepower. When it comes to the 3.0-liter V6 supercharged, well this is presented in two states of tune. It can deliver 380 horsepower and 340 horsepower depending on its application. Now, the most powerful version will be offered next year to the F-Type roadster model and the other one, the 340 horsepower, will be used to power the 2013MY XF and the XJ sedans. No matter which one we prefer, both send the power to the wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission offered as standard.
It seems that the British premium carmaker Jaguar will start selling the 2013MY models before the end of this year. More information will be released soon. Both the 2013 XJ and XF sedans are available with four engines and the 2013 XK Coupe and Convertible with three power-trains.
