247 HP Four-Cylinder Ingenium Engine Named to Wards 10 Best List
Jaguar’s Ingenium four-cylinder engine proves its ingenuity and wins well-deserved praise from auto industry critics.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced that its 247 hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine — as tested in the 2018 Jaguar XF 25t — has been honored as one of the 10 Best Engines for 2018 by Wards Auto.
For 2018, the team of Wards editors tested 32 new or significantly improved powertrains from a number of automakers that are available in U.S. models with an MSRP under $63,000. This year’s field of 10 Best Engines were selected based on a range of testing criteria including, but not limited to, maximum power output, technology, fuel economy and noise characteristics.
“Its 247 hp makes it more than competitive with other luxury-leaning turbo-fours, and this engine cruises confidently while delivering plenty of punch for every situation. We look forward to testing this engine again next year, along with the high-output version making 296 hp.”
Designed, engineered, and produced in-house by Jaguar Land Rover, the all-aluminum Ingenium 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine delivers performance, efficiency and refinement without compromise. The 247 hp Ingenium powertrain in the 2018 Jaguar XF 25t produces 269lb-ft of torque, accelerates from 0-60 mph in as little as 6.2 seconds on rear wheel drive models and delivers fuel economy of up to 34 mpg on the highway.
“Jaguar powertrain engineers should be enormously proud of their new Ingenium 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine, which we tested in the XF sedan but also appears in several other Jags,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto Managing Editor.
Also of note is that Jaguar’s superbly smooth 3.0L supercharged V6 was on the nominees list. Perhaps a bit late in the same, but here’s hoping we see the newer “30t” version of the Ingenium four-cylinder on Wards list for next year. With 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, the tuned up Ingenium is poised to pack a wallop in the segment, while still returning respectable fuel economy figures.
