2018 Jaguar F-Types Gets Turbo Four-Cylinder Option

Jaguar is adding to its previously announced updates to the 2018 F-Type with a new four-cylinder engine option. The entry-level F-Type is the final piece of the F-Type portfolio, which comes as a bit of a surprise at this year’s New York Auto Show.

Under the hood Jaguar has added their turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four Ingenium engine. It is worth noting that this is Jaguar Land Rover’s new 2.0-liter, not the one that is currently utilized in the XE and other products.

In this application the Ingenium engine is generating a healthy 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine can only be added to F-Types with rear-wheel-drive and Jag’s eight-speed automatic. The combination will propel the F-Type from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds.

Part of the reason this turbo four is so quick is because the F-Type 2.0T will also be the lightest version of the F-Type, coming in at 3,360 pounds. That weight figure yields a near 100 pound reduction over the closest F-Type with a V-6.

    Imagine if you will the weight savings of using a 4 cylinder over a V8 masquerading as a supercharged V6. I anxiously await the Jaguar Ingenium modular inline six.

    those are damn good numbers for a 4 cylinder


    You'd be really impressed with the Cayman S PDK (350 hp flat four): 0 - 60 in 3.6 seconds and 12-flat in the quarter. Not bad for two and a half litres (with some turbo help!).
