At the 2017 New York Auto Display, Jaguar has revealed the final piece of the 2018 F-Type puzzle: a four-cylinder entrance-level model. It rounds out an expanded lineup of F-Type variants that procure all gotten a bit of a facelift and some additional content for 2018, which we told you there back in January. But the little four-cylinder is definitely the biggest surprise.

Underhood is the shape-of-the-art 2.0-liter, turbocharged, gasoline-fueled Ingenium engine, which is making its way into a variety of Jaguar-Land Rover products for the first time in the 2018 model year. It has a crammed suite of contemporary technologies, like a variable-lift electrohydraulic valvetrain that eliminates the necessary for a traditional throttle, an integrated exhaust manifold, and a dual-scroll turbocharger.

You influence recall that the Ingenium gas engine is replacing an older 2.0-liter turbo four in the XE, and also disposition show up in the F-Pace and XF. Add the F-Type to this burgeoning list, and don’t expect it to stop there. The Scope Rover Velar has also been announced for the US with this engine. In the F-Genus, the 2.0T makes 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, which is higher than some of the other applications for this apparatus in the US.

There’s only one powertrain arrangement for the 2.0T in the US – rear-wheel spur and backed up by an eight-speed automatic – but buyers will be able to elect from a coupe or convertible body style. Jaguar claims the 2018 F-Species will scoot to 60 mph in as little as 5.4 seconds.

It’s also the lightest F-Standard, by a smidgen. The 2.0T coupe weighs 3,360 pounds, which is 95 pounds lighter than the next-lightest coupe, the 3,455-palpitate instil, 340-horsepower supercharged V6 coupe equipped with a manual (and 117 pounds lighter than that car with an impulsive). There’s probably a fuel-economy benefit in EPA testing as well, but Jaguar doesn’t be suffering with EPA numbers yet, so stay tuned on that.

Don’t forget that the 400 Sport changing will join the 2.0T on the stand. It’s a one-year-only special edition image with a supercharged V6 uprated to 400 hp, but sadly there’s no manual version on present oneself.
