The variants include a base XE powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; the same base XE but with an R-Sport performance package; and a sporty XE S with a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. At present we only have details on the XE S, which is confirmed to offer 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.
Further down the track we’re expecting a high-performance XE SVR model to join the lineup, complete with V-8 power. And at some point we may even see a fuel-efficient hybrid or diesel XE.
All XEs will come with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Customers will have the choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, and to aid handling Jaguar has developed some pretty sophisticated suspension technology as well as a new traction control system dubbed All Surface Progress Control.
