Jaguar XE Models and XE History
Introduced first in several world markets, the North American debut of Jaguar's all-new entry-level XE sedan occurred in spring 2016. Arriving as a 2017 model year vehicle, the Jaguar XE's creation is made possible by new modular architecture also responsible for the new F-PACE crossover. The Ian Callum-designed XE features sporty proportions while also delivering considerable interior space. Built with extensive use of aluminum, high-level construction of the Jaguar XE is enhanced by firm handling as well as electric power steering. Three powerplant options have been prepared for the XE sport sedan. The XE 25t features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder while the 35t features a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine generating 340 horsepower. A 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine option has also been made available for the 2017 XE 20d. The turbocharged diesel powerplant produces 318 pound-feet of torque at a low-rpm range. Standard features included on all Jaguar XE include rain-sensing windshield wipers, dual-zone climate control and the company's latest InControl Touch infotainment system operating from an eight-inch touchscreen.
