FWD, RWD or AWD ?[edit]

Have JLR announced which wheels will be driven yet ? RGCorris (talk) 19:49, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Not yet. I'd expect more details will follow at the Paris Motor Show this autumn Warren (talk) 14:00, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

"As with all Jaguars sold in the US it will be petrol only."[edit]

I attempted to remove this line twice, both edits were reverted, as they were automatically classified as vandalism.

I can understand the bot removing these edits but I feel like it is a stupid place for a stupid line to begin with. First off, the sentence is US-specific. In Europe the XE will be available as a diesel (as indicated in the info bar[?] on the right), so this fact should be reserved for a section of the article dedicated to the US model and its specifications. Especially in the 'Overview' section it looks out of place, where it does not relate or add on to the previous paragraph at all.

Second, the sentence doesn't actually indicate this is only true for the US model, it just says 'as with all Jaguars sold in the US', which includes Jaguars also being sold in the US but also in Europe, while in Europe diesel variants have been available.

A better version would be "As with all US Jaguar models, the US variant of the XE will not be sold with a diesel engine."
