Report: Jaguar to offer 4-cylinder, V6s starting this fall

It’s been a long time since Jaguar has offered a 4-banger and the brand hasn’t had a V6 since the X-Type stopped selling in the United States 4 years ago. But now, as many automakers move away from V8 engines to V6 units, Jaguar must change its ways. Starting as early as this fall, Jaguar will offer a 4-cylinder and a 6-cylinder in two of its three cars.

“We have only V-8s in a market that has moved to six-cylinder,” said Andy Goss, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America. “With the V-8, we are fishing in a small pond.”

Jaguar will offer a 2.0 liter 240-hp turbo 4-cylinder (found in the Range Rover Evoque) in the XF sedan. A supercharged 3.0 liter V6 making 340-hp and 380-hp will be offered in the XF and the XJ.

Both engines will be offered with an 8-speed automatic, dropping the 6-speed. Fuel-economy ratings on the new setup will be released in August.
