Engine Options

No matter which of these Jaguar sedans you select, you’re in for an array of engines and plenty of power to boot.

  • 2017 Jaguar XE: With the all-new Jaguar XE, you can pick between three engines, each of which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The first is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that generates 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. The second is a turbo-diesel 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. The final option is a supercharged 3.0L V6 machine that churns out 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2017 Jaguar XJ: The newest Jaguar XJ comes standard with the 3.0L V6 with the same specs mentioned above, but you’ll have two additional engine choices to pick from. The first is a supercharged 5.0L V8 that muscles out 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque, and the highest trim in the XJ lineup runs on a higher-output 5.0L V8 powertrain that makes a whopping 550 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel Economy

Those looking to save a bit of money at the gas pump will certainly love to know that the 2017 Jaguar XE achieves up to an EPA-estimated 32 mpg city and 42 mpg highway with the turbo-diesel engine and rear-wheel drive. The 2017 Jaguar XJ achieves very respectable fuel economy as well, particularly given its tremendous output and large dimensions. It tops out at 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway, according to EPA estimates.

Interior Dimensions

Although the 2017 Jaguar XE is slightly smaller in stature than the 2017 Jaguar XJ, the two have very comparable trunk sizes. The Jaguar XE, for example, has a cargo capacity that measures 15.9 cubic feet, and the latest Jaguar XJ can fit 15.2 cubic feet of gear.

Which Jaguar Model is Right for You?

The 2017 Jaguar XE and 2017 Jaguar XJ have the ability to go above and beyond your expectations, but ultimately you’ll have to pick one. Those who prize ultimate performance and can forego a bit of cargo room should seriously consider the Jaguar XJ. Meanwhile, if you want a smaller car that can still put out plenty of power and boasts more than enough space for all of your gear, then the Jaguar XE is your best bet.
