Jaguar Debuts Electric Plans With Battery E-Type

  Jaguar Debuts Electric Plans With Battery E-Type Starting in 2020, every new Jaguar will have some form of electric power. To prove it, Jaguar built an all-electric E-Type.This post was originally published on September 7, 2017, and has been republished because of today's Royal Wedding, which you may have heard about. - Ed.

Jaguar ' s new F - Type four - cylinder follows in the footsteps of Porsche's Boxster and Cayman, downsizing from six cylinders to four. But, while that German

Jaguar has revealed a new entry-level member for the F - Type family, powered by the company’ s most powerful 2.0-litre engine ever.

ÅLESUND, NORWAY – After pushing the performance envelope with recent models such as the 575-horsepower, all-wheel drive SVR, Jaguar is going leaner, lighter and a bit more affordable with its F-Type sports car for model year 2018.

This new iteration is getting a feistier version of JLR’s turbocharged, 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder Ingenium powerplant, nestled under its forward-hinged hood.

2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type

  2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type The 2+2 sports car is expected to be based on the next-generation F-Type due in 2019. It’s a known fact that Jaguar wants to expand its sports car portfolio beyond the F-Type lineup. How are they planning to do so? There have been recent talks of a rebooted XK to join the aforementioned F-Type as a more practical alternative with space in the back for two rear passengers. That scenario seems to be increasingly more likely if we were to rely on a new report coming from Autocar.

The pairing of Jaguar ’ s all-aluminium two-seat sports car with the advanced 300PS 2.0-litre turbocharged powerplant delivers Jaguar sports car DNA with

The F - Type downsizes. Sacrilegious , you might think, transplanting a smaller heart into a sports car known for its feral supercharged engine and raucous

The new engine’s maximum output ratings are 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheels only by Jaguar’s trusty eight-speed automatic transmission, with manual mode and steering-mounted aluminium paddles. No all-wheel drive or manual gearbox for the newcomer, which is available as either a coupé or soft-top convertible.

Jaguar promises 0-100 km/h sprints in 5.7 seconds for this new sports car variant – and it’s a perfectly believable claim.

The all-aluminium four-cylinder is a full 52 kilograms lighter than the 3.0-litre, 335-hp, supercharged V-6 that is next up the engine power and displacement ladder for the F-Type. Most importantly, all of this mass is taken off the car’s front axle, which brings great benefits in terms of agility, balance and handling.

Guess How Slow a V12 Jaguar From 1991 Is

  Guess How Slow a V12 Jaguar From 1991 Is And yet, we'd still choose the Jag.MotorWeek tested a 1992 XJS V12 convertible and recorded a 0-60 mph time of 9.0 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 16.8 seconds. Yeah, that's rather slow by today's standards. That gorgeous Jag would get smoked by a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica (7.8 seconds to 60) or Honda CR-V (7.6 seconds). Even a lowly new Subaru Impreza (8.4 seconds) would beat it. And in a drag race between the Jag and a 2018 Hyundai Elantra, you should put your money on the Hyundai, which sprints to 60 in just 7.8 seconds.

Find a Dealer. Jaguar put out a new video touting both the 2018 F - Type and its new four - cylinder engine, part of Jaguar ' s Ingenium modular engine family.

It was inevitable really: Jaguar is about to follow Porsche’ s lead by fitting a four - cylinder turbo to it sportiest model, the F - Type . How do we know this?

As always with Jaguar, suspension bits have been carefully adapted and tuned for the best blend of ride and handling, without the help of adjustable shock absorbers, in this case. Quite successfully, too.

Standard on the new entry-level F-Type are 355 and 325mm brake discs, bolted to 18-inch alloy wheels, with tires in sizes 245/45/R18 and 275/40/R18, respectively, in the front and rear. Also available are 19- and 20-inch wheels with matched tires.

Other changes for 2018

For 2018, all F-Type models get full LED headlights and new bumpers and air intakes on a slightly restyled front fascia, plus LED rear lights. Standard, inside, are new seats wrapped on die-cast magnesium frames that reduce weight by almost 8 kilograms, Jaguar’s latest Touch Pro infotainment system features a touch screen that now lets you ‘pinch-to-zoom’.

New systems of all kinds are available, including a lane-keeping assist function that is quite obtrusive (easily switched off with a button, thankfully) and parking assist that feels downright strange in this sports car. A new ReRun application, developed with GoPro, generates videos of your driving adventures with embedded data. That is more like it.

Some won't find it quick enough Or loud enough. When Jaguar first announced it was going to build a watered-down four - cylinder version of its F - Type Well, it turns out , we could be quite wrong about all this. It still looks like an F - Type , except for the centrally-mounted single exhaust pipe, not unlike

Behind the wheel

The car I drove, too briefly, on Norwegian roads, was a four-cylinder Coupé with the R-Dynamic package that includes 19-inch wheels and performance tires, the familiar F-Type sport exhaust switch and various trim details. The very first impression, as expected, was the deep, muffled drone of the new four-cylinder engine at lower revs. Nothing exotic or ravishing about it.

Things get much better, in aural terms, when you finally punch the right pedal. A throaty bark arises, as the needle sweeps through the mid-range and climbs towards the 6,300 rpm virtual redline, where the 8-speed gearbox will clamp the inner clutches on the next ratio. And that bark has Jaguar tattooed onto every sound wave, whichever tricks the engineers have used to achieve this.

Yet, it is through its leather-draped wheel that the F-Type four-cylinder feels most distinct from its muscular siblings. There is a lightness to its steering, on-centre and with small inputs, that makes it feel like an entirely different car, at first. The new ‘four’ tracks superbly, dispatching tighter corners with just a touch of consistent tire squeal that can hardly be labeled understeer. That said, it did wander and weave on Norwegian roads that are rutted, to a variable degree.

Jaguar moves to trademark C-Pace name

  Jaguar moves to trademark C-Pace name The Jaguar C-Pace could be a crossover coupe version based on either the E-Pace or the F-Pace. The trademark application was filed on July 9, and along with car-related goods and services, the application also covers software and charging stations, even buildings. We'll keep an eye on it.

Is Jaguar ’ s four - cylinder F - Type a sacrilege ? We find out . 2018 Jaguar F - Type 4 - cylinder first drive. autoweek.com. August 10 at 1:54pm · Public.

Jaguar F - Type 4-cyl 2017 review If some posts on social media are to be believed, those responsible for putting a 2.0-litre four - cylinder engine into Jaguar ’ s F - Type two-seat sports car should be hung, drawn and quartered. Anything other than a supercharged V6 or burbling V8 is sacrilege , surely?

The new four-cylinder convertible and coupé are smart additions to an F-Type family that now comprises five models and twenty-six variants, counting the 400 Sport coupé and drop-top that will be available for the 2018 year only. They are sports cars with charm and character like very few, along with pretty decent handling and performance, thank you.

Lister Is Turning the Jaguar F-Pace Into the "World's Fastest SUV" .
With 670 horsepower and a top speed of "over 200 mph," the Lister LFP will certainly haul.The LFP looks much like the F-Pace it's based on, albeit with a number of custom Lister touches. There are new bumpers, widebody fenders, new sideskirts, massive wheels, bigger brakes, and a bright yellow spoiler just to name a few. Lister says the LFP makes 670 horsepower, but didn't specify in its announcement what sort of engine it will use. We're guessing it'll use a retuned version of the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 currently found in the F-Pace SVR-though we can't be sure. The sprint from 0-60 mph is estimated to take just 3.
