2020 Jaguar F-Type Might Roar Louder Than Ever With BMW Engines

BMW and JLR have struck deals for future electric powertrain sharing. Between now and then, the Jaguar F-Type might get BMW petrol-power.

Talks about the next wave of products from Jaguar began in the last year. The future of the flagship XJ will be all-electric and at one point, it seemed as though the brand’s sports car, the Jaguar F-Type, was headed in the same direction. In this round of rumors, it seems as though BMW petrol engines will be called upon for the next F-Type.

As we all know, Tata purchased Jaguar Land Rover a few years ago and although Jag’s received a few new models, it’s Land Rover that has obtained the most attention in recent years. Moving forward, Tata will now concentrate on Jaguar with a slew of new or revised models. In fact, up to five new Jags are on the way in 2020.

The Jaguar F-Type will be one of them and while exterior changes seem subtle based on images floating about on the web, it’s what’s underneath that will see the most upgrades. According to Auto Express, these upgrades will allow BMW petrol engines slide in the engine bay.

The key player is BMW’s delightful twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 which produces anywhere from 450-horsepower to nearly 620-horsepower depending on the application. On board, the F-Type and other Jaguars will gain a new 10.2-inch infotainment system with digital heater controls.

Also expected to get upgrades in the coming months are the F-Pace and E-Pace SUVs and the XF sedan. For many Jaguars, electrification is in the works as well.
