Jaguar will be introducing two new forced induction petrol engines to their local linup with the 2013 model year (MY).
The two engines to be introduced include the 3.0 litre V6 250kW and 450Nm Supercharged petrol engine and the four-cylinder 2.0 litre 177kW and 340Nm Turbocharged petrol engine.
Ron Lee, Group Chief Engineer Powertrain, Jaguar Cars, said: “Both the 3.0 V6 S/C and 2.0 Turbocharged make intelligent use of forced-induction technology to produce high-specific output in an efficient way, while delivering the compelling combination of flexibility, refinement and driver reward that are integral attributes in all Jaguar engines.”
The 3.0 V6 S/C petrol engine has been developed by Jaguar powertrain experts from its existing award-winning 5.0-litre V8.
The 3.0 litre V6 wil be offered in both the Jaguar XF and XJ models replacing the naturally aspirated version of the 5.0-litre V8, whilst the 2.0 litre will replace the 3.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol AJ-V6 in the Jaguar XF.
The 3.0 litre engine fitted to the Jaguar XF, will propel the Jaguar XF to 100km/h in a claimed 5.9 seconds and a top speed limited to 250km/h all this whilst having a claimed combined fuel economy of 9.4l/100km and CO2 emissions of 224g/km.
In its XJ application, the 3.0 V6 S/C accelerates to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds and a limited top speed of 250km/h, whilst having a claimed combined fuel economy of 9.4l/100km and CO2 emissions of 224g/km.
The 2.0 liter turbocharged engine powering the Jaguar XF is capable of accelerating to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds and on to 241km/h while at the same time achieving 8.9l/100km on the EU combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 207g/km.
Both of these engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic ZF transmission , now available across the XF and Xj model ranges.
To enhance fuel economy the 3.0 litre V6 S/C will also be available with Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop-Start system.
