2018 Jaguar unveil F Type add bottom power New engine Turbocharge 2.0litre and 3.0 litre supercharge

The Jaguar F-type has packed a choice of rasping 3.0 V6 or burbling 5.0 V8 under its generously sized bonnet. Now Jaguar has announced another, more modest option: a new 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, from Jaguar Land Rover’s latest family of Ingenium engines.

It’s no weakling: with 296bhp on tap, the new 1997cc petrol engine is the most powerful four-cylinder unit in a production Jaguar yet. With 148bhp per litre, it actually has the highest specific power output of the F-type range, and with 295lb ft of torque spread from 1500 to

Whether it’ll offer a suitably goosepimply soundtrack to match is another matter, but Jaguar says its engineers have been hard at work on the intake and exhaust systems to get an authentically brusque F-type sound. Higher-spec R-Dynamic versions will come with a switchable active exhaust, while standard models will feature automatically opening valves to become more vocal above predetermined revs.4500rpm it should offer plenty of in-gear shove.

All F-types fitted with the 2.0-litre engine come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive.

It’s brisk enough; 0-62mph takes 5.7sec, the same time as the manual rear-drive V6 coupe. For context, the auto V6 takes 5.3sec, and the all-wheel-drive version of the 550 horsepower V8 4.1sec.

Top speed is electronically limited to 155mph(250kmph).

The F-type range as a whole has been given a minor brush-up for 2017 (on sale now, but confusingly called the 2018 Model Year range by Jaguar).

There are subtly redesigned bumpers, optional full LED headlights, slimmer seats, a much-improved touchscreen system and a suite of active safety systems including autonomous emergency braking.

The four-cylinder F-type is around 52kg lighter than the equivalent V6 model, and has had a subtle reduction in spring and damper rates to accommodate the reduction in corner weights. The electric power steering has been recalibrated slightly, too.

‘Most of the weight reduction is over the front axle, making the car beautifully balanced and really agile to drive,’ reckons Erol Mustafa, chief product engineer for Jaguar sports cars.

You can spot the four-pot F-type from the outside by its single exhaust outlet (V6 models get twin central tailpipes and V8s quad outboard ones) and its model-specific 18-inch wheels – although spanglier 19- and 20-inch rims are an option.
