Jaguar Xk

With rising gas prices concerning virtually every consumer, Jaguar is reportedly working on offering a diesel motor in the XK coupe and cabriolet.

Although the automaker had said that the XK would be gas-powered only, the success of BMW's diesel-powered 635d coupe has Jaguar hoping the oil-burning sports cars will increase sales.

The new engine may be a twin-turbocharged version of the 2.7-liter VD turbodiesel V-6, currently used in the European-spec XF and XJ sedans.; The revised diesel could produce over 250 hp (an increase of 46 hp) and return more than 30 mpg. The new variant would be offered only in Europe.

WHY WHY WHY Not in the US - I have a 2006 E320 CDI and I get 35 mpg commuting 50 miles round trip a day. I traded my SUV at 16 mpg for this car, so I have cut my fuel usage in HALF. WHY does Europe get all the saving and not us?
