The Mercury Cars Guide : January 10th 2009
8— CARSguide Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, January 10, 2009 New Jaguar purrs with diesel Jaguar is leading thewayin diesel technology withan engine that could ultimately find its wayinto the cars of other manufacturers, writes Neil McDonald The XF’s new hi-tech twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel could ultimately slide under the bonnet of future Ford Falcons and Territorys. Using the existing PSA-Ford joint- venture 2.7-litre V6 diesel as a base, the Gen III 3.0-litre comes in two states of tune (178kW/500Nm and 205kW/600Nm), enough to even spark the interest of Ford Perfor- mance Vehicles. Jaguar is the first carmaker to I install the engine. However, it is also destined to power other Ford products in Europe, as well as Citroen and Peugeot cars. The 178kW engine produces 16 per cent more power and a 15 per cent more torque over the 2.7-litre, allow- ing the XF to hit 100km/h in 6.7 seconds. T may look like any normal Jaguar XF sedan but it is what’s underneath the sheet- metal that is more interesting. HIGH ENERGY: The diesel-powered Jaguar XF packs a punch. The diesel model is expected to continue to push Jaguar sales in Australia. The 205kW version hits 100km/h spoiler and discreet ‘‘S’’ badging. in 5.9 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h and is 33 per cent more powerful and has 61 per cent more torque from 1500rpm than the 2.7-litre. Both engines return 6.7li- tres/100km, emit 179g/km of C02 and are mated to ZF six-speed automatic transmissions. Visually, the XF diesel S is distin- guished by 19-inch alloys, bootlid It is due to hit local Jaguar showrooms by mid-year. Since its launch here last June, the XF has been Jaguar’s saviour. The company has sold more than 300, representing almost half of total Jaguar sales this year and helping the company increase its overall share by 10 per cent. The newest diesel should continue to push sales. It meets stringent Euro IV emission targets that come into effect from 2011. Jaguar has achieved low emis- sions and good fuel economy using parallel sequential turbochargers that deliver V8-style performance from very low revs. In every day driving, including highway cruising, a variable- geometry primary turbocharger does all the work, while a smaller, fixed-geometry, secondary turbo is dormant, saving energy and improv- ing efficiency. When engine revs climb above 2800rpm, the secondary turbo kicks in, boosting output with any dis- cernible turbo-lag or power-step. Engineers aimed at eliminating turbocharger lag at low engine speeds. The 3.0-litre diesel uses new third-generation high-pressure common rail engine injection tech- nology. This enables the Jaguar engine to deliver faster injection cycles at a pressure of 2000bar. The high-pressure injection in- creases power, improves economy and reduces CO2 and harmful diesel emissions. Like the Jaguar 2.7 engine, the 3.0-litre engine uses a compact graphite iron engine block and aluminium cylinder heads.
