Back To Diesel Products>Jaguar Making its First Ever Diesel Sports Car – The Jaguar XK

For the first time, Jaguar is making a diesel-powered sports car with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. Jaguar is planning to re-fashion the existing XK in a bid to outsell its contemporary rivals like the BMW 635d, which has become the best-selling car in its class in the UK and Europe. Keeping this goal in mind, Jaguar XK is retaining great features like the bonded-and-riveted structure, while disposing off its older features.

Along with a 300 bhp V6 diesel -powered engine, the new Jaguar promises an acceleration of 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds, the average mileage being 30 miles per gallon. The body would be built of lightweight aluminum alloy, with more sculpting and surface development in the metalwork. The throwback fish-mouth shall be changed into a grille inspired by the XF. Jaguar claims that the interior shall be designed in a way unseen in any Jaguar model before. The highest quality cabin design is supposedly inspired by the newly released XJ which employs hand-stitched leather and high-tech materials in the interiors. The XK is expected to come with the TFT-screen instrument panel technology and the electrical harness system, both concepts taken from the XJ model.

Diesel engines are slowly gaining popularity among auto makers such as Audi and BMW. Jaguar has decided to join this league. Both the hard-top coupe and open-top convertible body styles will be available. The convertible will retain the soft roof for weight and packaging reasons. Jaguar is hoping to manufacture 10,000 to 12,000 units of the XK per year.
