Question "Delay" when accelerating from stop

I have a 2017 XE Prestige model. It always had a slight hesitation when I accelerated from a stopped position, even if the engine was still idling. If anyone else has experienced this issue and found a solution, please let me know.

Thanks,

Dennis

Which engine? I find the 2 litre petrols a bit surgey which is either turbo lag or transmission lag, I tend to think the latter. Usually with Jag transmissions you start with the car in second, if you really hit the hammer it will kick back to first and you get a slight lag from that.

Try putting it into dynamic, which sharpens up the gear changes a bit.

I think I've heard this referred to as "turbo lag", but I could be thinking about something else

Go and have the PCM updated. Powertrain control module. The Land Rovers have had a lot of trouble with this in 2017/18. Maybe on the jags too although I've not heard it discussed much. Finally resolved by a PCM update at Land Rover

Default Thank You

I will discuss it with Jaguar service when it is due for its checkup.
