The refreshed 2018 Jaguar F-Type will head to U.S. dealerships later this year with a starting price of $60,895 including destination.

Currently, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type starts from $62,395 but it comes standard with a 3.0-liter V6 engine providing 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. To give buyers more choice, the British automaker has added a new four-cylinder engine variant to the lineup that helps bring the entry-level price down. As a result, there will be a total of 24 derivatives available on the 2018 Jaguar F-Type lineup.

The all-new four-cylinder Ingenium powertrain is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The result is a zero-to-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph. The four-cylinder mill is paired to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission.

Whoah???

Personally, I think this dilutes the F-Type brand. Now, it doesn't seem like a very "exclusive" product line with 4 cylinder horse power that's equivalent to a Toyota / Scion!

In addition, why would anyone in a market segment (that can afford a +$60K car) want to "settle" for a 4 cylinder European exotic, to begin with?

It just doesn't make any sense to me.
