Jaguar has announced its latest offers for the three models: XE and XF saloons, and F-Pace SUV. The latest turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine can also now be availed in the three models, as well as the latest technology add-ons.
Jaguar has added another engine option to power up its local lineup. The XE, XF, and F-Pace have been confirmed to come with the latest petrol engine that can deliver 296 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. This is the same engine that runs the new 2018 F-Type four-cylinder model.
The new engine variant will enable the Jaguar XE to accelerate 0-62 mph in 5.5 seconds. The automaker claims 41.5 mpg fuel economy with CO2 emissions of 144 g/km.
For the Jaguar XF, the 2.0-liter petrol engine will enable the saloon to speed up 0-62 mph in 5.6 seconds. The automaker claims 41.5 mpg and 154 g/km CO2 emissions.
Whereas, for the F-Pace, the 296 bhp engine variant, which has been mated to the brand's eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, will accelerate the SUV from 0-62 mph in 6.0 seconds. Jaguar claims 38.2 mpg and 170 g/km CO2 emissions for this new option.
Meanwhile, Jaguar also announced the additional technology features for the XE and XF models. Both saloons can now be availed with a gesture-controlled boot lid. This feature has been added to the brand's Configurable Dynamics tech. This boot lid helps drivers to manipulate gearbox, steering and throttle settings.
Moreover, the three models are now being offered with Jaguar's new driver assist and safety technology features. The traffic detection and forward vehicle guidance features have been included in the new offer.
The price tag for the new variants with the turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine has also been revealed. The new XE will cost $48,600 (£38,145), while the new XF sells at $56,500 (£44,335). The new F-Pace SUV comes with a $57,000 (£44,760) price tag.
