Tweaks to Jaguar line-up for 2017

New petrol and diesel engines arrive for XE, XF and F-PACE…

The 2017 line-up over at Jaguar welcomes some tweaks from April with the British luxury car maker headlining those changes with updated and more-powerful engines.

Coming into the range are new 147kW/320Nm (XE and XF 20t) and 184kW/365Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines (XE, XF and F-PACE 25t).

The diesel range is bolstered by the introduction of the 177kW/500Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder twin-turbo Ingenium diesel (XF and F-PACE 25d).

And the sporty XE S gets a 30kW power hike for a new 280kW output from its V6 petrol engine.

Other tweaks for the 2018 model year XF and XE include the availability of Configurable Dynamics.

The system allows drivers to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preference by choosing Normal or Dynamic settings for the engine, gearbox and steering.

While the XF and XE saloons also boast Gesture Boot Lid – a system that opens/closes the boot at the wave of a hand.

The Jaguar XE also welcome a new virtual 12.3” TFT instrument cluster with full-screen 3D navigation.

The clever Dual View screen InControl technology, which allows the front seat passenger to see a different image on the infotainment screen to the driver, is also being introduced across all three vehicles.

Revised headrest designs in the F-PACE and XF also come, along with an updated range of paint colours.
