Jaguar Engines – Complete 2024 Jaguar Vehicles Engine Guide

Jaguar Engines - Complete 2024 Jaguar Vehicles Engine Guide

Jaguar is a brand with an impressive history in motorsports, and the maker of some of the most iconic sports cars in history. As such, Jaguar engines and performance characteristics generate a lot of interest and curiosity among fans of the brand. Today’s gasoline-powered Jaguar models are powered by the Ingenium family of engines, although that means different things in different vehicles. To help clear up any confusion about this, we’ve put together the following guide to Jaguar engines, which we think will be informative.

Jaguar P250 Engine

Jaguar P250 Engine

  • 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder
  • Horsepower: 246
  • Torque: 269 lb-ft

The P250 is used in most 2024 Jaguar models that have internal combustion engines. It is the only engine offered in the E-PACE, and it serves as the standard engine for the F-PACE, although there are other options available. The XF comes with the P250, but has the option of the P300, which is a version of the same 2.0-liter engine that has been tuned to produce more power, in this case, 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The XF is the only model to currently offer the P300 configuration of this engine, although it was briefly offered as the base engine for the F-Type.

The engine uses the modular Ingenium architecture that debuted in late 2015 as a replacement for the Ford-sourced Duratec engines that had previously powered much of the Jaguar lineup. This architecture is incredibly versatile and is used for 3-, 4-, and 6-cylinder engines, using both gasoline and diesel, and is shared with Land Rover as well.

Jaguar P400 Engine

  • 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder
  • Horsepower: 395
  • Torque: 406 lb-ft

In terms of architecture, the P400 is very similar to the P250, just with two more cylinders. That said, there are obviously some differences, chief among them being how much extra power comes with those “extra” cylinders. The P400 is also mated to a mild hybrid system, which provides some extra low-end torque as well as improved fuel economy. The P400 is found only in the F-PACE, and is only available in one state of tune. It serves as a replacement for the V6 engine that Jaguar offered up until fairly recently.

Jaguar P450 P550 P575 Engine

Jaguar P450 / P550 / P575 Engines

  • 5.0-liter supercharged V8
  • Horsepower: 444, 542, or 575
  • Torque: 428 lb-ft or 516 lb-ft

Sitting at the top of Jaguar’s engine lineup is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8. This is offered in three different versions, but all of them are supercharged and have a 5.0-liter displacement. The base engine for the F-Type is a version of this engine designated P450. It produces 444 horsepower, enough to get the F-Type to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. The next iteration of the engine is the P550, which is found only in the F-PACE SVR. This version gets a big bump in power, up to 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. It makes for a SUV that can seat 5 adults comfortably, but can also hit 60 mph in under 4 seconds. Lastly, there is the P575, which is found in the F-Type R75. Jaguar’s most powerful gasoline engine, it makes the same 516 lb-ft of torque as the P550, but bumps horsepower up to 575.

There is some confusion surrounding the 5.0-liter V8. Though the engine wears the Ingenium branding, the block architecture is different from the other examples. The V8 was first introduced just after Ford acquired Jaguar, and this has led some people to believe it is a Ford design, which has since been exacerbated by Ford introducing their own 5.0-liter V8 engine. But the engine was designed before Ford took over, and Jaguar currently doesn’t use any Ford-designed engines. Jaguar uses entirely Jaguar-made engines.

Jaguar I-PACE

Jaguar Electric Vehicles

With Jaguar planning an all-electric vehicle lineup in the very near future, the I-PACE gives us a glimpse of the future of Jaguar propulsion. The good news is that it’s going to be quick, with the electric drivetrain in the I-PACE cranking out 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque. It has a range of 246 miles from a 90 kWh battery. We’ll be interested to see how this technology evolves, and what the performance possibilities will be.
