Jaguar is fitting the latest generation of Ingenium engines to its heartland cars for the 2018 model year, as it gradually sweeps away the former Ford-era motors.

Parent company Jaguar Land Rover is developing a whole range of in-house four and six cylinder engines, which offer a tempting mix of better emissions, thriftier economy and - often - punchier performance.

Our full preview guide to the 2017 Geneva motor show.

What’s new for Jaguar's 2018 model year?

The new engines take pride of place, but there’s a host of new convenience and safety features, too.

The latest Ingenium engines announced this week are heralded by a new alphabet soup of badges:

  • 20t New 197bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol 
  • 25t New 247bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol

New gadgets, specs for Jaguar XE, XF and F-Pace

A wealth of new gizmos is now offered on the three heartland models. The Dual View split-screen tech is offered, waggle-foot-to-open boot lids and - finally - the high-def 12.3-inch instrument cluster with 3D navigation is available on the XE range for the first time. 

Configurable Dynamics tech is also available on the XE and XF, letting drivers tailor throttle, steering and gearchange settings on the fly.

The new derivatives are available to order now.

How is Jaguar doing?

Well, the company claims. It broke a new sales record in 2016, selling 34,728 vehicles in the UK, up 17%. It’s mostly down to the F-Pace crossover, which is its best-selling launch of all time.
