Jaguar have announced a range of enhancements to its F-PACE performance SUV and executive XF and XE saloons. The 2018 model year updates see the debut of Jaguar Land Rover’s latest innovative engines as well as new convenience and safety features available throughout all 3 vehicles.
The updates come on the back of a good start to 2017 in the UK, with more than 2,500 vehicles being sold in January, and increase of around 20% compared to last year’s figures, giving the brand its best start to the year ever.
Last year, Jaguar sold more vehicles in the UK than ever before, surpassing a 12 year record. The popularity of the XE, XF and F-PACE were all key figures in helping the brand build a solid platform to go into 2017 on.
“These three models were important in driving us to a record performance in the UK in 2016. The XF sold almost 10,000 vehicles last year and the XE and F-PACE alone made up 62% of all Jaguar 2016 UK sales. These models are attracting new customers to the Jaguar brand and now with an extended offering this appeal can only grow. It is all about giving our customers more choice. All three vehicles offer a wider range of engines and a suite of new technology, comfort and convenience enhancements that will make them even more relevant for UK buyers.” Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director said.
The Ingenium petrol engine family has also grown across all 3 models. A pair of all-new four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines has been introduced alongside a high-output 240PS diesel unit in the F-PACE’s range, as well as a new efficient E-Performance diesel derivative.
In addition, the new 200PS and 250PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines use an innovative low friction all-alluminium-intensive design to provide excellent thermal properties and lightweight construction for improved efficiency and enhanced dynamics.
“We are committed to expanding the Ingenium powertrain family produced at our award-winning £1billion Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton as we meet current and future consumer needs.” Nick Rogers, Executive Director – Product Engineering has said.
