Jaguar F-Type arrives a bit restrained for 2018 with 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine

A seductively long hood, strictly raked windshield and wide rear haunches – these characteristics are what makes the Jaguar F-Type. Add in a snarling 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, and the equation is complete.

Via a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, this stunner runs with 340 horsepower on its rear wheels while the S models get up to 380 horsepower on all wheels with the automatic transmission. The F-type is truly powerful; however, it may prove to be an impractical choice for rough roads.

For 2018, Jaguar decided to tone it down with the F-Type, giving it a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four base engine, making a total of 10 powertrain options (a grand total of 24 model variants). It has been a while since news of a four-cylinder F-Type circulated, so this addition to the line is not too surprising. This particular F-Type runs exclusively on rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, producing only 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) of torque at 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. With this powertrain, the F-Type can launch itself from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155 mph.

2018 Range Rover Velar and 2018 Jaguar F-Type to mark US debut at New York Auto Show

What is in for Jaguar Land Rover in the United States for the 2018 model year? Jaguar Land Rover’s display lineup for the upcoming 2017 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) -- to be held at the Jacob Javits Center on April 12 to 23 – could give us some clues.

Jaguar Land Rover’s booth at the New York Auto Show will showcase two of its newest offerings – the new 2018 Range Rover Velar and the refreshed 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE. This will mark their debut on the American soil, bringing more excitement to customers in this part of the world.

The arrival of the new Range Rover Velar coupe-SUV meant that Land Rover’s Range Rover range now has four members. The Velar coupe-SUV is set to bring more depth to the carmaker’s already impressive offering, filling a slot between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. There will be a new size hierarchy in the Range Rover family, starting from the largest to the smallest: Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and the Range Rover Evoque.

Artist renders a shooting brake derived from the new Jaguar F-Type

The Shooting Brake is probably the least rendered body shape in the automotive world. But it’s also the most sought after design among car nuts for its unique, old-fashioned charm. All this time, X-Tomi Design is just one of the few artists who used Shooting Brakes in their drawing board.

As a matter of fact, there were already about 10 modern versions of Shooting Brakes under X-Tomi’s collection. The iconic body style was imagined into a Lexus RC F, a Camaro, a Challenger and Mercedes AMG GT. There is also one for an Audi TT S, a Nissan GT-R, a BMW M4 and M6 as well as a Toyota GT 86 and a Ford Mustang.

For sure, it takes a lot of imagination and creativity just to come up with both the classic shooting brake body and the latest vehicle model and create one exceptional concept design. And now, X-Tomi designers have thought of something new to add to their existing collection of Shooting Brakes. Without much ado, let us all welcome the Jaguar F-Type Shooting Brake.

Wheelsandmore Jaguar F-Type S 4.2 dons custom rims and more powerful engine

German-based company Wheelsandmore has always been known for its utmost focus on wheels. Yes, WheelsandMore could heavily customize wheels to the needs of its customers. However, as its name aptly suggests, WheelsandMore could do more than providing high-end super cars, sports cars and luxury vehicles with bespoke wheels – it could also tune engines of these mobile machines.

The latest project for the German firm comes in the form of the WheelsandMore Jaguar F-Type S 4.2. This is essentially a Jaguar F-Type S fitted with the company’s newly designed wheels and a specifically tuned engine. This upgrade program developed by WheelsandMore provides the Jaguar F-Type S with a lowered stance and a higher level of performance, allowing its drivers to experience a more pleasurable drive. This WheelsandMore upgrade program is available for both the Coupe and Convertible version of the Jaguar F-Type S powered by the supercharged V-6 engine.

WheelsandMore’s recent fray into mid-range sports cars involved the introduction of its new W-Technology label – the first examples of which were fitted in the WheelsandMore Jaguar F-Type S 4.2. Specifically, the WheelsandMore Jaguar F-Type S 4.2 is fitted with F.I.W.E. complex three-piece forged wheels. These double-spoke concave wheels WheelsandMore feature a deep barrel that lends the F-Type a more imposing appearance while retaining its classic British beauty.

The mid-engine with rear-wheel-drive layout “competition” heats up. That’s right. Jaguar’s director for design Ian Callum is well aware of the popularity of mid-engine among sports car enthusiasts. And guess what? He has actually been toying with this idea for years.

Callum had spoken with Road & Track at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show recently. During the discussion, he shared titbits on what to expect with the new Jaguar. Instead of a rear-wheel-drive with front engine, Callum hinted about changing the car’s “proportion”. And by that, he probably also meant placing the engine behind the front seats. What do you think?

We know for a fact that Lamborghini and Ferrari have already done this with the Huracan and the 488. For something that has sold over 4,600 units since last year, the F-Type undoubtedly is one of Jaguar’s bestsellers. Aside from its extensive choice of engines, the sports car is also offered in both coupe and convertible variants. Perhaps all that’s missing is a Jaguar with a mid-engine set-up.

A Jaguar F-TYPE SVR driven by actress Michelle Rodriguez has just completed its first high-speed test drive on a closed highway in the Nevada desert. The Fast and Furious star was able to push the fastest production Jaguar ever to its top speed, with the speedometer reading at 201mph, which is also a personal top speed record for Rodriguez.

Considered as Jaguar’s ultimate performance vehicle, the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR was developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to be quicker and faster as well as lighter yet more powerful but usable for daily driving. It is powered by the latest iteration of Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine which was calibrated and adopted from the F-Type Project 7 to provide 575PS of max output and 700Nm of peak torque.

Its front bumpers feature enlarged air intakes, revised charge air coolers and redesigned bonnet vents – all enhancing both the car’s cooling system performance as well as powertrain efficiency. The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is fitted with a new lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system that could endure even higher peak temperatures and lower backpressure. Moreover, this exhaust system is around 16kg lighter than during development.

Jaguar is introducing the 2017 F-TYPE SVR on March 1 this year, picking the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as the venue to unveil the car before it goes on sale. Sports enthusiasts will certainly love the amazing acceleration of the F-TYPE SVR, which marks the start of a line of SVR vehicles to be produced by Jaguar.

With a top speed of 200 mph, the two-seater can be used in both sports racing as well as daily commutes. Featuring an aluminum body, the F-TYPE SVR is lightweight and very agile. The dynamics and mechanics of the car’s design result not only to a lightweight racer, but one that is very responsive and comfortable to drive.

According John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, the F-TYPE SVR is the culmination of Jaguar’s current expertise on engineering, performance and design.

Jaguar is introducing a very special version of its award-winning F-Type – the new Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition – as a tribute to its reputation as a pioneer of the great contemporary British design. The new Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition is derived from the F-Type S Coupé and Convertible, while boasting of styling upgrades and more equipment.

Just as its name suggests, the Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition could be specified in any of the colors included in the Union Jack: Caldera Red, Glacier White and Ultra Blue. Moreover, customers could specify their new Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition in Ultimate Black.

This new special edition could be availed either as a Coupé or a Convertible. It is powered solely by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine – mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission all-wheel drive – that develops up to 380PS of output and 460Nm of torque.

Starting in the 2017 model year, more consumers can afford to purchase a new Jaguar F-TYPE in the United States. This came after Jaguar North America disclosed a decision to expand the F-TYPE’s price range in the country to cover new entry-level coupe and convertible models.

This expansion means that the introductory price of the MY2017 F-TYPE Coupe and Convertible will be lowered to $61,400 and $65,400, respectively. The MSRPs exclude $995 destination/handling charge, tax, title, license, and retailer fees -- all due at signing -- and optional equipment.

Despite the expansion, Jaguar’s sports car lineup for the 2017 model year will still be comprised of the F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R. This price level expansion builds upon the brand’s pricing realignment strategy that was disclosed as part of The Next Generation of Jaguar for the 2016 model year.

At the Coventry MotoFest, Jaguar will unveil the F-Type R AWD Bloodhound SSC Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV), a car that will support the Bloodhound world land speed record attempt. The Bloodhound F-Type R AWD is the latest project of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations and as you can see from the photos it incorporates the Bloodhound SSC colours, featuring a bespoke livery.

For those who don’t know, Jaguar is the Technical Partner of Bloodhound SSC and is supplying engines, engineering expertise as well as a number of support vehicles for the attempt to break the world land speed record. The F-Type features the same radio equipment as the rocket-powered Bloodhound SSC.

The vehicle uses the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine as the standard version, which produces 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque. As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph.

Jaguar has added an intelligent all-wheel-drive (AWD) as an option to its all-aluminum sports car, the Jaguar F-TYPE. Along with the optional six-speed manual transmission, the AWD system will further improve the sporty nature of the F-TYPE, which already features lightweight construction, refined power, ideal proportions and excellent design.

With the addition of such options, customers can now choose from 14 derivatives of the F-TYPE Coupé and Convertible models. The derivatives include the 340PS RWD Coupé and Convertible with a supercharged V6 mated to a manual gearbox as well as the 550PS AWD F-TYPE R Coupé and Convertible with a supercharged V8 mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission.

For the 550PS AWD R versions, a max of 680Nm of torque is delivered from the engine to the wheels, thereby allowing the vehicle to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 186 mph. Customers would not have to worry about any major changes in the styling of their F-TYPEs should they opt for AWD.

Although Jaguar said that it will not add an all-wheel drive version of the F-Type, it appears that the British manufacturer changed its mind and we will see an AWD version of its stylish convertible at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The decision to build an F-Type AWD was to better compete with its main rival, the Porsche 911 and to boost sales of the F-Type in North America and Alpine countries.

The new AWD version promises to double market coverage of the F-Type. When it comes to design, the new F-Type AWD is expected to show a higher bonnet due to the fact that the company needed to accommodate the extra driveshafts and differentials.

Jaguar is expected to offer the same 3.0-liter V6 engines or the more powerful V8. For those who don’t know, the 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 340 hp is capable to push the F-Type from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, while top speed is 161 mph or 260 km/h.

The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 gets ready to make its debut at Pebble Beach and the manufacturer announced that the brand new car will have a starting price at $165,000 excluding the $925 destination charge. For those who don’t know, the F-Type Project 7 was named in honor of seven Jaguar wins at Le Mans and was created by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

As expected, the vehicle will be offered in a limited edition and each unit will be powered by the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 575 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The vehicle has a total weight of 1,585 kg and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds), while top speed is electronically limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph.

Engine is mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission which sends the power to the rear wheels through the second-generation Electronica Active Differential (EAD). As standard, the vehicle is offered with the Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes as well as with the Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) for precise handling.

Jaguar Land Rover recently announced its brand new Special Vehicle Operations division and we already seen the F-Type Project 7 as well as the Range Rover Sport SVR. Today, the new division unveiled a high-performance support vehicle based on a bespoke F-Type Coupe.

The new vehicle will be used by Team Sky during Stage 20 of the 2014 Tour de France that will see riders traverse from Bergerac to Perigueux. The bad news is that Jaguar is not planning to place into series production any version of this unique F-Type Coupe, so if you like bikes you should choose the XFR-S Sportbrake.

The new F-Type Coupe features a new racking solution that can carry two of the team’s Pinarello Bolide TT bikes and comes with an exterior finished in Team Sky’s livery.

Jaguar already unveiled the limited edition F-Type Project 7 a.k.a. its lightest version of the F-Type at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but it appears that the British manufacturer has a new project. According to Auto Express, Jaguar wants even more and is preparing a new version of the F-Type that will be even lighter than the F-Type Project 7.

These words came from Paul Newson, the director of Jaguar Land Rover’s newly created Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division. And now listen to the interesting part: in order to make the F-Type lighter, Jaguar could use the technology found on the C-X75 Concept, that was powered by a 1.6-liter supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine.

Newson said that the Project 7 is 80 kg lighter than the standard F-Type, but thanks to lighter engines the car could become lighter. On the C-X75 Concept, the 1.6-liter engine could rev to 10,000 rpm and was capable to deliver 500 hp.

Just in time for the 60th anniversary of the iconic D-Type racer, Jaguar announced that it will build the F-Type Project 7. Set to make its public debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new F-Type Project 7 promises to be the most performance-focused derivative of the F-Type range.

In addition, the Project 7 will also be the most powerful production model to date as it is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that generates 575 hp and 680 Nm of torque. With a total weight of 1585 kg, the F-Type Project 7 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds), while top speed is electronically limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph.

The engine is bolted to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, while power is sent to the rear wheels through the second-generation Electronic Active Differential (EAD). Due to the power increase, Jaguar offers the Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes as standard as well as the Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) which, working in conjuction with the EAD offers precise handling.

Yesterday we’ve told you that McLaren is currently working on a hardcore version of the 650S, but it appears that British carmaker isn’t the only company, which is developing such vehicles. According to AutoExpress, Jaguar is also considering a lightweight version of the F-Type Coupe. Lighter, faster and more extreme than the standard version, the Club Sport version of the F-Type Coupe will shed around 200 kg, which means it could weigh around 1,465 kg.

As a result, it could sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 3.5 seconds, meaning that the car will enter the supercar territory. As expected, the F-Type Club Sport will be lighter thanks to a new carbon fiber aerodynamic kit, but also a more austere interior, as well as carbon-fiber seats and carbon-fiber panels.

For those who don’t know, Jaguar has quite a history of famous lightweight versions of its historical production vehicles, such as the C-Type and E-Type. F-Type Programme Director Russ Varney told Auto Express that a lightweight, harder version of the F-Type Coupe is on Jaguar’s list.
