Jaguar has released new details about the US-spec XE.

Set to arrive next spring, the model will be offered with two different engines in the United States.  The entry-level XE 20d will feature a 2.0-liter Ingenium four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 180 bhp (134 kW) and 318 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque.  

Moving up to the XE 35t will reward buyers with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 340 bhp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (449 Nm) of torque.  It will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which will enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Jaguar also confirmed the XE will be offered in Premium, Prestige and R-Sport trims.  The latter will have satin chrome side vents, gloss black window surrounds and a discreet rear spoiler - among other things.

The XE will also be offered with ambient lighting, two Meridian audio systems and a laser heads-up display.  Other highlights include an InControl infotainment system and an assortment of wood and aluminum trim.
