Ingenium “30t” Engine Details Revealed!

By - 2018 Jaguar Ingenium 2.0T Four Cylinder

More powerful Ingenium 2.0T engine to spread across Jaguar line-up.

Jaguar has finally dropped the veil of secrecy surrounding its newer version of the still-new Ingenium four-cylinder engine. The new two-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine will spread across the Jaguar range for 2018. This includes XE, XF, F-PACE, F-TYPE and possibly the E-PACE, though Jaguar is being hush-hush about the latter. All of the “hot” Ingenium 2.0T-powered Jags will wear the “30t” badge on their back sides. Jaguar says that due to the high-performance nature of the new engine, every model equipped with it can knock out the 0-60MPH sprint in under “well under” 6-seconds.

If that claim sounds boisterous, think twice: this four-cylinder is bringing some firepower with it. Thanks a renovated valvetrain and a twin-scroll ball bearing turbocharger, this more powerful variant of the Ingenium four cylinder engine produces 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This is a substantial bump over the standard Ingenium “25t” four cylinder engine, with its 247 horsepower.

The 30t engine will be paired exclusively with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. Having experienced this transmission in several recent Jags, I can personally attest that it’s a fantastic gearbox. As always, XE and XF models will come with rear-wheel drive as standard, with optional all-wheel drive. F-PACE models come with all-wheel drive as standard equipment.
