2018 Jaguar F-Type Gets New Base 4-Cylinder Engine, Cheaper Entry Price



Quote:
"The refreshed 2018 Jaguar F-Type will head to U.S. dealerships later this year with a starting price of $60,895 including destination.

Currently, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type starts from $62,395 but it comes standard with a 3.0-liter V6 engine providing 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. To give buyers more choice, the British automaker has added a new four-cylinder engine variant to the lineup that helps bring the entry-level price down. As a result, there will be a total of 24 derivatives available on the 2018 Jaguar F-Type lineup.

The all-new four-cylinder Ingenium powertrain is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The result is a zero-to-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph. The four-cylinder mill is paired to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission."

I think this is a good move for Jaguar and perhaps my car of the future, once the kids move out. I have never sat in an F Type. Anybody know if it can seat tall people comfortably? I am 6-3.

It needs a manual and a cheap "club sport" edition or something with cloth seats and no frills. That would be awesome. The V-6 with 6 speed manual is still the sweet spot in the F Type range.

Im 6'2" and sat in an F-type R at the dealership... they nearly talked me into leasing one haha. Fit was nearly perfect and had a TON of adjustability. The seats were so much better than those in the F-pace... but at $120,000 dollars it better be.

According to some "experts" on this forum, no luxury brand should have a no frills option as it would hurt their brand. Apparently Jaguar has a lot to learn about diversifying their models and attracting new buyers!

I am no expert but agree with the philosophy that making something more affordable can lead to brand loyalty for many who end up upgrading in the future (i.e. Porsche Boxster).

This is what I hear from manufacturers who do not offer manuals on their models... they can't justify the cost by adding a manual for the select few that would actually get one. Not saying I agree with it but thats the reasoning that they most often use.

I have to agree with you on this one, as much as I have defended the entry FP levels. It took Detroit a long time to recover from the vastly under-powered "muscle cars" of the 80's and 90's. Of course, much depends on the performance numbers, as you can certainly squeeze much out of a four-banger these days.
