Jaguar, the luxury car marque once known almost exclusively for its silky six-cylinder engines and growly V8s, has announced it will add a version of the Ford Falcon four-cylinder petrol engine to its line-up.
The company has also revealed it will fit a supercharger to its 3.0-litre V6 for an upcoming mid-life refresh of both its XF and aluminium-bodied XJ models that will include stop-start technology to switch off the engine while stopped in traffic.
Both the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and the V6 will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that will be a standard feature across the Jaguar car range.
I can’t believe they are putting a 4 cylinder 2.0l engine in the Falcon. It just seems wrong. But if Jag is using it then it must be good. Right?
