Jag considering diesel XJ for U.S.

AUTOWEEK

Oily cats

Jaguar sources say the company is considering bringing a diesel XJ to the United States, possibly by 2008. The likely engine would be the 2.7-liter 204-hp, 321-lb-ft V6 twin-turbo*diesel it plans to offer in European XJ models.

“There’s potential for lots of demand for diesels in the U.S.,” says Jaguar and Land Rover chief engineer Al Kammerer, “but first we’ve got to cross plenty of technical hurdles.”

Next year’s introduction of low-sulfur diesel in the U.S. is the first step, but Jaguar will also have to develop a urea-based catalyst that scrubs smog-forming nitrogen oxides.

If the American public buys into a diesel XJ, don’t be surprised if an oil burner shows up in the XK8 sports car; a diesel is penciled in on the XK8 plan for 2009-10.
