    2 litre turbo 250 or 3 litre supercharged AWD

    So I saw an XE review on youtube yesterday and had a quick look at one today at a dealer.

    Looking on the jaguar website there are so many model variants

    I quite like the petrol 2 litre turbo 250 or 3 litre supercharged AWD.

    What is the dynamic lineup. Suspension I assume?

    It that what they would call sports suspension is the old days when jaguar were proper with wood inside?
    What is the actual difference?


    Thanks for any pointers

    The XE 3.0 V6 was discontinued around June 2018 and was only available in RWD in the UK.

    It was 'replaced' by the current 'P300' AWD, powered by a higher output version of the 2.0 Ingenium petrol engine, which is used in the 200PS and 250PS versions of the XE.

    The models shown on the Jaguar website are the new '2020' model year versions, the first demonstrators and showroom cars should arrive with dealers in mid April.

    The new R-Dynamic trim level replaces the previous R-Sport model.

    Main difference between the R-Dynamic and 'standard' XE is the bodykit.

    RWD R-Dynamic versions also benefit from sports suspension but the AWD variants have the standard XE suspension.

    Hope this helps !

    Thanks for info.

    Is P300 electric ?

    I think I should avoid ingemium engines.

    Are they trying to sell off old stock/models ? Or are they all built to order like the xj used to be ?

    P300 means Petrol with 300Ps. I’ve had the 25t ingenium engine (250Ps RWD) for 18 months now and 11k miles clicked over today, it goes great. I achieve 45mpg on the motorway, 60 in 6 seconds and has max torque from as low as 1200rpm. I wouldn’t ignore them at all.

    You can get still wood in an XE if that’s your thing too.

    The XE hybrid (1.5L 3 cyl with 48v mild hybrid 200Ps output) is due by the end of the year along with the inline 6 3.0L ingenium 400Ps engine.
    Current Car:
    2017 XE R-Sport 25t 250Ps 18MY.

    All off the current 2.0 petrol and diesel engines are Ingenium, so 'avoiding' them is not an option ?

    The current 2019 model years cars have 0% finance and substantial deposit contributions, so in a sense, they are 'selling off' the old models.

    Your choice would be limited to what is already built and available from national stock, but there is currently a large number of cars to go at.

    The 3.0L supercharged V6 in the XE-S shares the same block from the 5.0L v8 but with the two rear cylinders blanked and shortened heads.

    Interesting.

    I had a search on eBay the see what these engines look like and found 2 sumps foresale.

    If that is all that is left from an engine it isn’t a good sign.

    Hi. How do I search for 4x4 models for sale? What term defines this? I thought all 3.0 were.
