Huge improvement outside and especially inside. I still have my fingers crossed that some iteration of the new I6 will make its way in there.

The interior is nicer. More luxurious, less sporty. Quilted seats are the new rage. Imagine cleaning those quilted seats with the white seating areas. Not me, brother.

And you are forced to get the S model to get the 3.5 SC motor.

Nice,but nice enough for me to trade in my 2017 3.5 R-Sport.

Bloody hell. Been on Jaguar USA's site and it looks like they're dropping the 3.0 V-6 altogether for 2020. Or is that only for the US?

No diesel either...

The 3.0 V6 option has been dropped for all markets.

We only get the 221KW/300hp one over here in petrol, but that's what I would have gone for anyway. Looks better, front and back, interior nicer, price is sharper. I'm sold! The only question is whether to let my eagerness take over and pay too much for an early one, or let it sit for 6 months or so and get one for 10% off. I'm inclined toward the latter. The back end treatment in particular is what it always should have been.

Not going to spend this kind of money for any car, made by anybody with a 4 cylinder motor.

Somewhere in the Australian Outback, 50 years hence: "That's the last of the V-6 Jag XEs...would've been a shame to blow it up."

I won't, either.

JLR is not going to increase new-car sales in the USA by using 4-cylinder motors. It appears they don't understand the US market. And they certainly aren't made for fleet use.

JLR leasing and finance "deals" are awful, too. Idiots.

An Ingenium straight-6 petrol engine is in course of development and will no doubt go into the US-bound cars. No doubt SC versions will be offered too. Jaguar managed with a straight-6 in the US from 1948 !!

I bet they'll be able to get a ton of power out of it and make the engine bay a little better looking than it is now. There's not much to show off popping the hood on current Jags.

Engine choices aside, I think Jaguar has finally got the message about improving the interior luxury content vis-a-vis Jags of yore. The 2020 XE is the first Jaguar model to receive the Range Rover InTouch Pro Duo electronics and the modern Jag other than the XJ to feel truly luxurious inside. One hopes it will trickle up to other Jaguar models. Soft aniline leather is nice but I guess burled walnut is a passe', a real shame because I love it.

Agreed. I'm thinking that this is really a last hurrah for the Jag sedans, personally I doubt we will see a new one past 2025 save maybe an electric XJ.

At the rate JLR is hemorrhaging money ($4.5 billion in 2018) the new 2020 XE is a do-or-die for the Jaguar sub-brand. Rumor has it that if the XJ survives till 2025 it will be a 800hp EV. Tata is looking to sell parts of JLR to stay afloat as the diesels that are 90% of their business are tanking.

We Jaguar aficionados are like the outnumbered troops commanded by Henry V during the Battle of Agincourt ("We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!") Except in this case we might not win the battle.

Absolutely no chance that the Ingenium I6 will be supercharged in the normal way (eg an Eaton TVS), it will be turbocharged with possibly a battery/electric supercharger as well.

Isnt that what they are saying? https://www.caradvice.com.au/725658/...um-inline-six/

I think I'll buy the XE, but if sales of a sedan are critical to Jaguar survival, things are looking grim...

.Sorry, fellas, but the 2020 version of XE has lost me, not only on exterior but interior too. The new outside body looks so "static", like a heavy bar of soap, which is a deceleration from the less tall, leaned-back cabin with the more aggressive bonnet the original 3 years of XEs had. I LIKED the way the bonnet seemed to "reach forward" on the previous version, like that part of the car was moving forward onto the road. Like it wanted something from the road.

The 2020 body appears to stand up taller in the front (probably just an illusion I'm getting from the new protrusions around the bonnet). It doesn't look like a vehicle in motion.

To me the same thing is happening inside. Static with trinkets around the owner, and things standing up off the dashboard. Not the road-focused layout of two years ago. Pretty, but the wrong attitude for me.

The good thing is, my design will now be gone from the market. And 2016 through 2018 versions will now be cult collectors' items.

I think that a variant of the new i6 engine is going to make its way over into the range. I am not sure which, the 360hp or the 400hp version, but the 400hp version makes the most sense. They are also working on plug-in hybrid options. If you want more details about the new i6 engines, under the Range Rover Sport configurator they include more details.

The burled walnut is an option...
