According the reports released not too long ago, it is now confirmed that the highly anticipated F-Type roadster from Jaguar will be powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged engine in V8 configuration.
The V8 will also be available in two different types with one outputting over 485 horsepower in the XFR, XKR Coupe and the XJ. Another super power version of the V8 with over 525 horsepower will be fitted on the top of the line XKR-S.
Joining the fleet of V8 engines is the 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine confirmed with the option of two different power outputs; a 375bhp unit or a 335bhp. The 335bhp engine will be fitted to the XF and XJ to propel car to 62mph from a standstill in just 5.7 seconds.
A new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-potter will also be fitted in the entry level model of the F-type. However, only the six and eight cylinder engines have been confirmed. The 2.0-liter compact engine will pick up where the naturally aspirated 3.0-liter V6 engine left off in Jaguar’s lineup however hold your horses because UK will not be getting a taste of turbo power.
The Chief Powertrain Engineer for Jaguar, Ron Lee, comments that the both the supercharged V6 and turbocharged 2.0 liter utilize the technology of force induction to make big power efficiently but still delivering ultimate driving performance which are an important aspect in all Jaguar powerplants.
In tandem with the announcement of new engines, Jaguar will also invest some 200 million GBP to upgrade its UK Castle Bromwich plant where the new F-type together with other new cars will be built.
Early 2013 saw Jaguar’s partner, Land Rover hiring an additional 1000 workers to keep up of the increased production of their new SUV, the Evoque.
Now with extra funding from Tata and also an increased demand in the Chinese market, Jaguar Land Rover is setting its sight on its German rivals.
