Jaguar announced at the New York Auto Show a refresh for its F-Type sports coupe that lops two cylinders off the base model V6. It won’t be quite that indelicate of a procedure and the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 will likely remain the most popular choice.

For 2018, the F-Type will provide six individual engine options. The F-Type will persist with its 340 horsepower six-cylinder mill, or 380 horsepower if you option for the R-Dynamic model. Next year’s Jags will also see the return or the previous 5.0-liter V8 trims — including the 550 hp R and 575 hp SVR. However, if you’re more into the F-Type for its charming looks than its bonkers performance, Jaguar will soon offer a 2.0-liter turbo for under $60,000. 

The four-cylinder coupe won’t be useless as its 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque should at least make it more lively than your everyday family hauler. However, if you want to run through the gears yourself, then this isn’t the car for you. The turbo four will only be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, leaving the 340 hp F-Type S as the singular option for those wanting a six-speed stick.

Jaguar says the 2.0 liter F-Type weighs in at around 3,360 pounds and is capable of a 5.4 second 0–60 mph time with a 155 mph limiter. Fuel efficiency, one of the sole reasons for picking this model, has yet to be disclosed for the North American market, but it’s certain to outperform the V6 and V8 in terms of efficiency.

If you’re looking for an economical F-Type, pricing begins at $59,900 plus the $995 destination fee. Just do us the honor of explaining why you’re buying this beforehand.
