The Jaguar XE series, one of the wildest cars on Earth, unveils a new pavement predator.
Nicknamed the Jaguar XE S, it features a 380-hp V6 engine borrowed from the F-Type model. Apparently, by car accelerator, he is the nearest rival of the BMW M3. Read more for more details.
Jaguar XE: Complete Specifications
Under the hood of the Jaguar XE is a brand new 2.0-liter four-cylinder aluminum engine. It uses a twin-scroll turbocharger to produce 247 horsepower. In addition, it boasts an impressive 269 lb-ft of torque.
The 2018 model is equipped with an automatic transmission and a rear transmission. However, the 4WD is available at an additional cost. Meanwhile, an improved version called Jaguar XE S receives a 3.0-liter V6 engine set to generate 380 horsepower.
Performance specifications are not yet announced. Nevertheless, the Jaguar XE S is very likely to over-sprint the other members of the XE range. Tagged as the most refined Jaguar XE to date, its extensive list of equipment enhancements includes:
- heated rear seats
- hands-free trunk lid
- power rear sunshades
- a 10-inch touchscreen
- a digital instrument cluster
- an 825-watt surround sound system with 17 speakers
- 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
- Forward Vehicle Guidance
- Forward Traffic Detection
- emergency braking
Payment of gas without cash
Jaguar has partnered with Shell to develop an innovative cashless cash payment system. Instead of slipping a card at the pump or waiting for a service crew, owners simply install the Shell application. Drivers can now drive up to any gas station and use the vehicle’s touchscreen to select how much fuel they need.
Then they can pay through PayPal or Apple Pay. A Android pay-based system arrives later this year. At present, the payment of gas in cars has started in the UK, but is expected to be published globally before 2018.
For recording, an electronic receipt will be displayed on the touch screen. In addition, a copy will be sent to the driver’s email address. Indeed, the Shell application offers a new way to make refueling more convenient.
The base price for the Jaguar XE starts at $ 35,725. Finally, a fee of $ 925 will be charged. On the other hand, the Jaguar XE S series sells for $ 52,275.
According to Digital Trends, the all-new Jaguar XE S could help the British company get a larger piece of the luxury compact sedan segment. It is currently dominated by the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Well, it seems that their reign will not last.
