The all-new Jaguar Ingenium engine line-up may expand to include powerplants ranging from three to eight cylinders in size.
Jaguar XE chief programme manager Nick Miller told at the launch of the new mid-size model that the engine range is modular, much like the new architecture upon which the XE is built.
“The Ingenium range is really all around a single cylinder. A single cylinder is half a litre. So four-cylinder, two-litre,” Miller said of the new diesel engine that will first be seen in the XE.
“That is the same modular system that will apply to the petrol version as well. The idea behind it is that you apply exactly the same piston technology to your petrol and diesel,” he said.
