Currently reading: Jaguar 296bhp Ingenium petrol engine extended to XE, XF, F-Pace
The XE, XF and F-Pace are now available with the new version of the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine, which produces 296bhp and 295lb ft

Jaguar has extended the availability of its new Ingenium petrol engine, a 2.0-litre unit producing 296bhp and 295lb ft of torque, to the Jaguar XE, Jaguar XF and Jaguar F-Pace.

It’s the first time the engine has been available in the cars, following its debut in the four-cylinder F-Type, which was revealed at the New York motor show earlier this year. 

With the new engine, Jaguar claims fuel economy of 37mpg for the F-Pace, 40mpg for the XF and 41.5mpg for the XE.

CO2 emission for the XF and XE are 163g/km and 157g/km respectively. The F-Pace's figure is yet to be confirmed.

The new engine is at its quickest in the XE; Jaguar claims a 0-62mph time of 5.5sec, while the XF and F-Pace take 5.6sec and 5.7sec.

With 296bhp, the XF will sit in a fairly unique place in the market; the only petrol Audi A6 available is the warmed-up Audi S6, while other rivals’ closest cars in terms of power are either diesel, or more performance-oriented, such as the BMW 5 Series 540i xDrive, and Mercedes-Benz E 350 d

Back in February, Jaguar added to the ranges of the three cars with 197bhp and 247bhp petrol engines, making this the third 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium variant in the cars’ ranges, sitting above the 250bhp unit.

Jaguar Land Rover is also poised to replace its V6 engines with 3.0-litre, straight-six Ingenium petrol engines.

Jaguar takes a typically sporting approach with the F-Pace, but it isn't quite enough to better its sibling, the Land Rover Discovery Sport

This expensive engine is no match for the 381bhp/350lbft engine in the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

The Jaguar engine's complex valve system could be potentially unreliable/expensive to maintain in the long run too. I would be wary of buying an engine with that kind of valve system.

Jaguar should have focused on matching or beating the A45 AMG's engine.

Fuel economy

Where are the real world fuel economy figures for this engine?

It is not hard to arrange various types of test to demonstrate fuel efficiency.

In my experience around 30% less than official combined figure is what one might expect in the real world of 'family driving', i.e. not a motorway commute. So figure on around 26, 28, and 29 mpg for the 'Pace, XF & XE respectively.
