The motor joins the 200-hp and 250-hp versions of the 2.0 turbo.
Jaguar is introducing a new 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine for a trio of its core models – the XE, XF, and F-Pace. Part of the Ingenium family, the new motor produces 296 horsepower (222 kilowatts) and a peak torque of 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) for “effortless acceleration.”
“We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before,” Nick Rogers, Executive Director, product engineering, comments. “Our new 296-hp gasoline engine provides the performance synonymous with Jaguar, while delivering enhanced fuel economy thanks to its state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design.”
In the XE sedan, the new engine provides a 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) acceleration in 5.5 seconds for models equipped with an all-wheel drive system. The bigger XF sedan sprints to 62 mph (100 kph) in 5.8 seconds with the new unit, while the F-Pace SUV needs 6.0 seconds to reach these numbers. Average fuel consumption stands at 28 MPG highway / 28 MPG highway / up to 25 MPG highway for the XE, XF, and F-Pace respectively.
The British manufacturer promises that, when mated to Jaguar Land-Rover’s ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the new 30t-badged engine delivers “exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses.” In the F-Pace SUV, the powertrain sends its power to all four wheels, while customers of the XE and XF can choose between either a rear- or an all-wheel-drive layouts.
Earlier this year, Jaguar introduced another new engine for its lineup, a 2.0-liter turbo gas unit with 200 hp (149 kW) and 247 hp (184 kW), with the first being available only for the XE and XF models outside the United States. Also, the British manufactured added a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder biturbo diesel with 240 hp (179 kW) and a meaty 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) from 1,500 rpm in Europe, while the XE also received a 3.0-liter V6 engine shared with the F-Type with 380 hp (283 kW).

“We continue to broaden the range of our Ingenium engine family, giving customers more choice than ever before. Our new 296HP petrol engine provides the performance synonymous with Jaguar, while delivering fuel efficiency thanks to its state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design,” said Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering. “This clean and more efficient engine perfectly complements the advanced lightweight aluminum body structure of our XE, XF and F-PACE models.”
The new four-cylinder engine, badged 30t, benefits from the latest Jaguar Land Rover engine technology, including twin-scroll turbos with ceramic ball bearings to reduce friction and a high flow compressor wheel for enhanced performance. The new engine is manufactured at the £500m Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton, UK.
Paired with an advanced ZF® eight-speed automatic transmission, this drivetrain delivers exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses. For the XE and XF sedan models, customers can also choose between rear and all-wheel drive, while F-PACE models feature AWD as standard.
The introduction of the powerful new engine is the latest in a series of enhancements to the XE, XF and F-PACE. Earlier this year the range of advanced Ingenium engines expanded to include a 247HP version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine.
Further updates for the 2018 model year derivatives include available convenience features such as a Gesture Controlled Trunk Lid for the XE and XF. All three models also benefit from the very latest driver assistance technologies including optional Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection3.
