Jaguar News: A Date Has Been Set: September 8th For The 2016 Jaguar XE

Recommended Posts

Jaguar has announced September 8th as the date they will reveal the production version of the 2016 XE compact sedan. Along with the date, the British automaker has dropped a few more hints for their new compact luxury sedan.

The XE's suspension is comprised of a front suspension based on the design used in the F-Type, a new integral link rear suspension, and a electric power steering system which is said to deliver the "renowned Jaguar feel and response.”

Jaguar also talked about the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) which is said to enable smooth launches on slippery surfaces on rear-drive models. ASPC works like a low-speed cruise control system to get the vehicle moving.

As for engines, the XE will be first model to debut Jaguar Land Rover's new Ingenium engine family. The Ingenium family is made up of an aluminum block that share the same bore, stroke, cylinder spacing, and 500-cc cylinder capacity for gasoline and diesel versions. All engines will come with turbochargers, direct high-pressure fuel injection, variable valve timing, and start-stop technology. Ingenium is also a modular design which means Jaguar Land will be able to scale up or down to create different displacements, and accommodate a range of powertrain layouts.

I look forward to seeing what they come up with.  Jaguar has some awesome products, the F-type looks stunning, even the XK which they are discontinuing still looks good.  Jaguar looks at a more affordable price point is a good thing.  I would think the engines are basically the 2.0T and 3.0 V6 that the XF uses now.  Jaguar has direct injection and turbo and superchargers now, so I wonder how much is new, versus just doing an update of what is already there.
