Jaguar F-Pace, XE and XF gain new engines and tech for 2017

Jaguar F-Pace, XE and XF gain new engines and tech for 2017

The Jaguar F-Pace SUV, XE compact sedan and XF large car are introducing new engines to the line-up, along with new convenience technologies.

New engines from Jaguar-Land Rover’s Ingenium range comprise 147kW and 184kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrols, plus a 177kW diesel that is the first JLR four-cylinder to feature dual turbos.

The two petrol units replace Ford-sourced four-cylinders that were offered with 147kW and 177kW.

JLR’s 147kW version gains 40Nm, lifting maximum torque to 320Nm; the new 184kW gains extra power and an extra 25Nm for peak torque of 465Nm.

Fuel efficiency is improved across all three engines, varying with model.

The Jaguar XF adopts all three engines, while the XE takes only the two petrols and the F-Pace skips the 147kW version.

All three models now feature Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance, which both link to the surround camera system. FTD uses the grille-integrated camera to visually warn the driver of detected hazards in low-visibility scenarios. FVG combines the surround camera system and sensors to help parking in tight spots.

The trio also add Dual View, which can split navigation and media information for driver and passenger, respectively.

The Jaguar XE and XF sedans get an upgrade to their blind-spot detection systems, which can now apply a small countering steering wheel force if it detects the vehicle is about to cross into the path of an occupied lane.

XE and XF also gain hands-free boot access called Gesture Bootlid, and standalone Configurable Dynamics set-up, which allows drivers to choose Normal or Dynamic modes for each of the engine, gearbox and steering settings.

Jaguar says pricing for the expanded model ranges is unlikely to be finalised until late March.

Here’s WhichCar’s quick guide to the key 2017 changes for the trio of Jaguars:
