New emissions standards in the United States were one of the main causes for an engine change in 1971 for the Jaguar XKE line. As a result, a new 5,343cc V12 engine launched with the release of the Series 3 Jaguar XKE line. To accommodate the new engine size that was 3-inches longer than the V6 previously used, but was significantly wider due to the new carburetors, changes were made to the front end on the 1972 Jaguar XKE and the other Series 3 model-years. More flared wheel arches, a cross-slatted front grill and wider tires were some of the most obvious visual changes. The Roadster and the Fixed Head Coupe 2+2 were also built on the longer chassis to accommodate engine size. If you’re the proud owner of a 1972 XKE, then you know many of the interior changes first hand. These included standard option power steering, air conditioning, an optional automatic transmission and leather interior.
