Jaguar Introduces New Four Cylinder Engine! According to recent reports, Jaguar is introducing a more powerful version of its four-cylinder gas engine with plans to make it available in the 2018 XE sports sedan, 2018 XF mid-size sedan, and 2018 F-Pace SUV. The engine is an upgrade from the last one, offering 49 more hp than the turbo four-cylinder in 25t trims and an additional 26 pounds-feet of torque, with an impressive rating of 296 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque. Jaguar is claiming that this all-wheel-drive XE will be able to from zero-to-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, the RWD XF will hit 60 mph 5.4 seconds, and the F-Pace SUV in 5.7 seconds.
This comes with news that Jaguar I-Pace will feature a thermal management system, which can reportedly add up to 30 miles of range. Because a lot of the energy potential is lost through heat in internal combustion engines, electric cars have the capacity to be much more efficient, especially when utilizing a good thermal management system. Jaguar took inspiration from their recent electric undertaking– the Formula E race car– sharing, “Controlling temperature is important for any car, but it is especially important for electric vehicles like I-PACE Concept and Jaguar’s I-TYPE Formula E race car. In racing, effective thermal management means drivers can compete faster and longer out on track. For road cars such as I-PACE Concept, drivers can gain up to 50km more range between charges.”
