New and improved Jaguar F-Pace and the XF and XE sedans have received the latest Ingenium engines and new convenience and safety features for 2018 model year.
The Jaguar F-Pace performance SUV now comes with all-new four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines, alongside a high-output 240PS diesel powerplant. Meantime, the F-Pace F-Pace benefits from an efficient new E-Performance diesel derivative, which promises CO2 emissions as low as 126g/km†.
The new 200PS (available with XE and XF) and 250PS 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines use the Brand’s low friction all-aluminium-intensive design to provide excellent thermal properties and lightweight construction for improved efficiency and enhanced vehicle dynamics. Models with the 200PS engine wear a 20t badge while 250PS derivatives are identified by 25t badging.
The diesel range is bolstered by the introduction of the 240PS 2.0-liter four-cylinder twin turbo Ingenium diesel. This high output 500Nm engine delivers traditional Jaguar performance without compromising running costs.
The strengthened engine has uprated pistons, crankshaft and fuel injectors and is the first four-cylinder Jaguar Land Rover engine to deploy twin turbos. Their sequential configuration boosts power at high engine speeds while improving responsiveness at low engine speeds. Jaguar F-Pace, XF and XE models fitted with the new diesel engine wear the 25d badge.
The 2018 model year XF and XE deliver greater scope for customers to personalize the driving experience thanks to Configurable Dynamics being offered as a standalone feature. 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. The chosen combination is activated by engaging ‘Dynamic’ mode using the chequered flag button on the central console. At the same time, Adaptive Dynamics, which allows drivers to tailor the suspension settings in addition to those for the engine, gearbox and steering, when combined with Configurable Dynamics, is available as before and provides the ultimate in dynamic personalization.
New Convenience and safety features
The Jaguar F-Pace, XE and XF for 2018 have been added with plenty of comfort and convenience enhancements. The adjustable front seats in F-PACE and XF have been boosted with the availability of winged headrests. The new designs feature powered height adjustment with manual side wing supports.
Dual View technology is introduced across all three models, allowing the driver and front passenger to view different infotainment displays using the central 10-inch Touchscreen display. The clever InControl technology is available when Touch Pro is specified and allows the driver to follow satellite navigation instructions while the passenger uses the same display to view USB or TV outputs.
A revised paint palette for all three vehicles brings the color names into line with those offered throughout the Jaguar line-up, simplifying the customer ordering experience.
As for safety, the F-Pace, XF and XE feature a pair of new technologies: Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance. Forward Traffic Detection, part of the surround camera system, is designed to assist when forward visibility is restricted. Using a discreet forward-facing camera in the grille. Meantime, Forward Vehicle Guidance, which works in tandem with parking sensors, is fitted as part of the Surround Camera System and helps drivers to place the vehicle when completing low speed manoeuvres.
On XE and XF models, Blind Spot Assist (BSA) enhances the existing Blind Spot Monitor system by using the collision warning system in tandem with the Electric Power Steering System.
