The 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE is Coming, and it's Packing Six Different Road-Commanding Powerhouses

The arrival of Jaguar's new two-door coupe and drop-top convertible options is fast approaching, and they look to cater to performance drive-time predilections as diverse as the vistas of adventure they promise.

Our Huntington, NY Jaguar dealership awaits with more than a little excitement the new 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE, due to appear later this year. Among the most enticing elements of the new speedster will be a discerning driver's choice of highly advanced engines ranging from an energetic 296 horsepower to a road warrior's 575.

2018 F-TYPE's base model will showcase the 296-horsepower variant, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4‑cylinder Ingenium engine bespeaking the most advanced and efficient build for an F-TYPE to date. Jaguar looks to feature Intelligent Continuously Variable Valve Lift Control, an E-wastegate, and a variable-displacement oil pump, meaning the automaker's new blood will proffer not only the power of 295 pound-feet of torque to compete but also the operational efficiency required for a stand-apart dynamic drive-time. Acceleration from zero to 60 mph in up to 5.4 seconds appears to be a matter of course.

From Jaguar's initial offering, the sky's the limit. Step up to the 340-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 variant, and you can take advantage of 332 pound-feet of torque to rocket 2018 F-TYPE from zero to 60 in as little as 5.1 seconds. Looking for a touch more output to unleash the sports car beast? Avail yourself of an F-TYPE trim housing a 380-horsepower V6. Its potent 339 pound-foot shell-out reduces ascent from zero to 60 to a low 4.8 seconds. Add a trim at the next level like the new F‑TYPE 400 SPORT to the mix, and V6 power ratings ratchet up to 400 horsepower, with the eponymous engine gaining a supercharger for lower-rpm peel-outs.

At the top of 2018 F-TYPE's line lie two 5.0-liter V8 engine options, and it's here that one can truly feel the pulse of Jaguar performance. 550 horsepower churns from under the hood in the 2018 F‑TYPE R thanks to a 5.0-liter V8 engine. What's more, 502 pound-feet of torque is just the heart-pounding "get-up" to the car's "go." F-TYPE R looks to make possible a blistering 3.9-second acceleration to 60 mph. This is matched – some might say excelled – only by F‑TYPE SVR. This monster gains in the area of 60 mph in a lower 3.5 seconds, 575 horsepower driven by torque pound-feet in the 516 range. To say that's competitive would be an understatement.

How will the 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE compare to its laudable sibling? Only time, and a test drive to remember, will tell. Visit us here at Jaguar Huntington to take one of our 2017 Jaguar F-PACE models out for a scenic Long Island test drive.
