2017 XE normally this loud?

Post by gr4peglue » Wed Jun 12, 2019 1:02 pm

This might be a silly question but I've noticed my 2017 XE Is very loud in dynamic and normal mode while I'm driving especially on the highway. I don't mind the loudness but was a bit curious to know if this is normal.

In ECO mode it isn't as loud.

I figured it's loud because it's supercharged but I don't know much about engines and all.

The super charged unit will be quite loud with power applied. Part of the appeal. :D

Might be because in eco it drops the revs really low and changes gears early so you don't hear much. Jaguar doesn't pipe through fake engine noise through the internal speakers

I've noticed there is some noticeable exhaust noise at around 50-60 that disappears as you go up towards 70.

Hmmm. Wonder whether loud = sewing machine ?

Is it an unpleasant loud ? Mine was horrendous till I fitted the Halfords strap and now it is all lovely and smooth and V6'y with a slight supercharger whine.

I did have a courtesy car f-type 340 with the same engine as mine and it was really loud. Deliberate I suppose. And not at all addictive..... :mrgreen:
