New diesel engine joins Jaguar range

JAGUAR’S diesel range continues to grow with the addition of a 2.2-litre X-type in September.

The 153bhp four-cylinder engine from parent company Ford’s Mondeo brings the number of Jaguar diesel options to five, with a sixth version soon to be announced in the form of the range-topping XJ saloon. The X-type 2.2D meets Euro IV emissions standards, averages 47.1mpg and produces 159g/km of CO2.

With peak torque of 265lb-ft, the X-type has been engineered for strong mid-range performance, and it comes with an overboost facility which liberates nearly 300lb-ft of torque for overtaking manoeuvres.

Prices for the saloon and estate will be announced nearer to its September launch.

  • The popularity of diesels in Jaguar’s line up has resulted in the 2.5-litre petrol model being dropped from the range. To mark its demise, Jaguar has launched a series of run-out special editions, all featuring more than £3,000-worth of optional extras. Prices for the 2.5 Plus, SE Plus and Sport Plus start at £25,995.
