New Jaguar F-TYPE Gets A 2.0-Litre Turbocharged Four-cylinder Ingenium Petrol Engine

Added in: Jaguar

It’s still quite a powerful thing! Jaguar is broadening the appeal of the new F-TYPE with the introduction of the four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine. The pairing of Jaguar’s all-aluminium two-seat sports car with the advanced 300PS 2.0-litre turbocharged powerplant is aimed to deliver Jaguar sports car DNA with enhanced agility and improved efficiency and affordability.

The new model can accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155mph (249 kph). The turbocharged engine’s high maximum torque of 400Nm, generated from 1,500rpm, together with the eight-speed Quickshift transmission, is claimed to deliver exceptional response throughout the rev range.


A host of advanced technologies enables the Ingenium engine to deliver this blend of high performance and low fuel consumption. Neatly integrated into the cylinder head is a electrohydraulic valvetrain featuring patented control algorithms developed in-house. This technology is said to enable fully variable control of intake valve lift for optimum power, torque and efficiency throughout the engine’s operating range.

The exhaust manifold is integrated into the cylinder head casting. Coolant flowing through ducts in the manifold reduces warm-up times and therefore reduces fuel consumption and emissions. The manifold is carefully matched to a twin-scroll turbocharger. The design prevents exhaust gas pulsation interference, ensuring that the turbine wheel responds far more quickly: boost pressure is delivered near-instantaneously, making turbo lag almost non-existent, providing the responsiveness so familiar to the F-TYPE driving experience.

To ensure the best possible launch performance and transient response while still enabling the engine to develop its high peak power output, the turbocharger features ceramic ball bearings. These deliver the lowest possible bearing friction, especially from cold starts.

The 200bar direct injection system features centrally-mounted fuel injectors. Together with optimised spray patterns this technology helps to minimise fuel impingement on the cylinder walls and the piston crowns, improving efficiency and reducing emissions.


The Ingenium engine contributes to an overall vehicle weight reduction of 52kg – most of which is over the front axle – and this is key to the four-cylinder F-TYPE’s enhanced agility. Meticulous tuning of the chassis to complement the new engine delivers even greater steering response, body control and ride comfort.

The 2018 Model Year Jaguar F-TYPE features visual enhancements to give the sports car an even more powerful presence. Redesigned bumpers, together with optional full LED headlights enhance the F-TYPE’s design and provide greater differentiation between each model in the range.


At the rear the four-cylinder model features a unique single tailpipe finisher to distinguish it from the twin central exhausts and quad outboard exhausts of the V6 and V8 models. Lightweight 18-inch wheels also identify the latest addition to the line-up, and help to minimise unsprung mass, contributing to the enhanced ride and handling.

The changes to the F-TYPE’s interior, including lightweight slimline seats, Touch Pro infotainment system and new chrome and aluminium trim finishers, heighten the driver-focused feel. A sleek frameless rear view mirror adds another contemporary touch.


The new F-TYPE range also offers a wider range of advanced driver assistance systems underpinned by the integration of a forward-facing stereo camera. These systems help to improve safety and reduce driver workload, and include Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning as standard, and optional Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Speed Limiter and Driver Condition Monitor.
