Choosing the Engine for Your Jaguar XE

Jaguar XE

Jaguar aims to deliver a luxurious experience to its drivers. As part of this, it offers numerous customization options. The all-new Jaguar XE, for example, offers multiple trim levels along with three different engine choices. To figure out which of these engines is the right one for you, it helps to take a closer look at each of them.

The Jaguar XE 25t

If you stick with the XE 25t specifications, you will get the base engine, a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. This engine will put you in control of 240 horsepower and 251 pound-feet for torque. It is only available with rear-wheel drive, and it will get 21 mpg* in the city, 30* on the highway, and 24* combined.

The XE 20d Trim

For those who want a diesel engine in their Jaguar XE, the choice of engine is easy. The XE 20d runs on a 2-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder engine that puts you in control of 180 horsepower and a truly impressive 318 pound-feet of torque. With rear-wheel drive, this engine will give you 32 mpg* in the city, 42* on the highway, and 36 combined. Opting for all-wheel drive will drop these figures slightly to 30*, 40*, and 34 mpg*, respectively. Keep in mind that the all-wheel-drive system found on the XE is geared toward performance and will regularly operate in rear-wheel-drive mode. It then sends power to the front wheels when it becomes necessary.

The Jaguar XE 35t Trim

The Jaguar XE 35t specification gives you the most powerful engine, a 3-liter supercharged V6 with 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet. This engine is also available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive configuration delivers 20 mpg* in the city, 29* on the highway, and 23* combined. It can also go from 0 up to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds. Opting for this engine automatically gives you a sport-tuned suspension.

So Many Trim Choices!

When picking among the engines, you will also need to keep in mind that not every engine is available with each trim. The base XE is only available with the 25t or 20d engines, and the R-Sport is only offered with the 20d and 35t. The Premium and Prestige can have any of the three engines.
