Jaguar is set to shelve the V6 petrol engine in favour of the traditional inline six in the new S-type, due in 2007.
The new 3.2 litre unit will be used by Ford, Volvo, Land Rover and Jaguar in various applications, thereby reducing the unit cost per engine.
The standard engine is expected to produce 240bhp with a turbo-charged version approaching 300bhp.
