If you wanted something besides a V8 in Jaguar in the U.S., you would have to go Europe to go for a six-cylinder. This has caused sales of Jaguar vehicles to drop.

"We have only V8s in a market that has moved to six-cylinder," said Andy Goss, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America.

To stop the slide, Jaguar will introduce four and six-cylinder engines for the XF and XJ lines.

The four-cylinder is the 240 HP 2.0L turbo-four from the Range Rover Evoque and will be placed into the XF. The six-cylinder will be a 3.0L supercharged V6 producing either 340 HP (XF) and 380 HP (XJ). Both the four and six will come with an eight-speed automatic.

Goss says the V6 will be a game changer for Jaguar, since about 70% of the XF competitors come with a V6.

The turbo-four and supercharged V6 come out later this year.
