Jaguar Confirms Engine For 2014 F-Type At Beijing Auto Show

Follow Viknesh

Earlier this month Jaguar confirmed its stunning C-X16 Concept from 2011 will be produced and that it will go on sale in mid-2013 as the F-Type, initially as a convertible.

Today, at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, Jaguar confirmed the F-Type will feature a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine.

In addition to the announcement of the new V-6, Jaguar also said it plans to launch a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for use in its XF and XJ sedans.

Both engines will be paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions and the V-6 will also benefit from engine stop-start technology.

Starting with the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, Jaguar says the engine is based on a similar design used for its existing supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 and that it will come in two different states of tune: 340 and 380 horsepower. The 380-horsepower version will be reserved for the F-Type sports car. Key features of the design are direct injection technology, variable valve timing and aluminum construction.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder shares its design with the engine found in the Range Rover Evoque from sister company Land Rover. It has a rating of 240 horsepower and also benefits from direct injection technology and variable valve timing.

While the four-cylinder engine is unlikely to be offered in U.S.-delivered XF and XJ sedans, we will be seeing the new V-6 when the F-Type lands in the summer of 2013. Prototypes of the car have already been spotted testing near Jaguar's headquarters in the UK.
