2018 Jaguar XE Review
The Jaguar XE is a great pick for drivers in the Ventura, Camarillo, and Oxnard areas who want to get behind the wheel of an efficient and dynamic machine. To show you what we mean, the team at Jaguar Ventura created this 2018 Jaguar XE car review.
Jaguar XE Engine Specs
When you take control of the 2018 Jaguar XE, you’ll have one of four available engines humming under the hood.
All engines utilize stop/start technology and regenerative charging to maximize efficiency and curb emissions by powering down your engine during extended stops and harnessing kinetic braking energy to charge the battery. Using this kind of technology makes the XE ideal for city driving where stop-and-go traffic is more common.
To reach maximum efficiency, consider equipping your Jaguar XE with the 2.0L turbocharged diesel engine that generates 180 horsepower and 318 lb-ft of torque. With this engine you’ll achieve and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 MPG city and 40 MPG highway.
There are also two 2.0L turbocharged gas engines. One has an output of 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, and the other produces 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. With either you’ll achieve well over an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 MPG on the highway.
If you want a truly thrilling engine, upgrade to the 3.0L V6 supercharged engine. In addition to generating 380 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, this engine offers the fastest acceleration of all four options, going from 0-60 MPH in just 4.9 seconds.
