Jaguar announced today that an all-new midsize sedan is on the way for 2015, and it will be named the Jaguar XE.
The firm also uncovered that the new car will be primarily based on an aluminum chassis with new 2.-liter 4-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. There was no mention if these will be turbocharged engines, but we assume they will be due to the fact the automaker claims they’;re “all-new.” It sounds like Jaguar is ditching the turbo 2.-liter in the current XF sedan.

Jaguar also stated there would be a “total selection” of engine alternatives, like one particular topping 186 mph, so this BMW 3 Series competitor will probably pack far more than just a 4-cylinder.
Jaguar has been without having a automobile in this segment given that the a lot-maligned X-Variety was discontinued in 2009. It enters a competitive segment with not only the 3 Series but also a redesigned Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the quickly-to-be-updated Audi A4, Cadillac ATS, Volvo S60, Infiniti Q50, Lexus IS 250 and Acura’;s new TLX.
The only XE image that Jaguar released (over) isn’;t going to look remarkably diverse from the XF sedan, but we’;ll see more when the production versions are exposed “later this yr.”
