It’s been a very long time since Jaguar has offered a model for sale in the U.S. with a four-cylinder engine, but that is about to change this fall. With other luxury automakers like BMW and Mercedes-Benz starting to offer four-cylinder engines in its U.S. lineup, Jaguar has confirmed that it too will bring smaller engines here.


Andy Goss, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America told Automotive News, “We have only V-8s in a market that has moved to six-cylinder… With the V-8, we are fishing in a small pond.”

This fall the 2.0L four-cylinder from the Range Rover Evoque will be offered in the Jaguar XF and a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 in two versions (340 hp and 380 hp) will be offered in the XF and the XJ sedan.
