The Jaguar F-Type is sexier and sleeker than ever, but sporty looks aren’t the only thing that the latest F-Type has improved on. The vehicle has a range of new and exciting features that customers will be looking forward to.
High Performance Audio
To make the package even more desirable Jaguar is including a 770-watt Meridian sound system. The system offers a superb surround experience and top audio quality that will make it even more enjoyable to listen to music while bolting down the road.
Improved Driving Mechanics
The F-Type is one of the few vehicles out on the market that still offers a manual transmission and they do it quite well. The manual shifts with precision and comfort. It’s fun to drive and a good solid option for anyone still looking for a manual in a newer vehicle. The one downside to opting for the manual is that it’s only available with the rear-drive versions of the vehicle. If you want the newly offered all-wheel drive system, you’ll have to choose an automatic transmission to go with it as well.
Any tech enthusiasts will enjoy the tech upgrades Jaguar made to the new F-Type. It now comes with a range of Apple and Android functions that allow drivers to unlock and start the vehicle remotely. They can even roll down the windows of the car using the smartphone. This connected capability makes it easier than ever before to keep control of your car and make it perform the way you want it to. It of course will have improved media that will go along with that enhanced Audio system nicely.
Let’s face it, most people who buy the Jaguar F-Type like to go fast, and won’t object to more power. The top trim level of the F-Type, the R trim, has 55 more HP than before and is now sitting at 550 HP. It’s faster and more exciting to drive, and it’s now available in both coupe and convertible styles.
Sexier than Ever
All those enhancements are available without sacrificing the sexy sleek look of the Jaguar F-Type. The vehicle remains as compact and edgy as it’s always been. It’s got curves in all the right places. Exotic air scoops that cool the brakes while making the car more attractive to look at. It’s the F-Type shape at it’s best, and if you were just after a nice looking vehicle the F-Type would make sense for looks alone, even without factoring in all the other improvements the vehicle has.
There’s a whole slew of reasons to love the new Jaguar F-Type. It’s a major improvement on an already awesome car, and there’s more than enough reasons to trade in last year’s model for the next generation.
The latest Jaguar F-Type R lineup offers power-hungry vehicles that handle smoothly and offer luxurious interiors to boot. Jaguar has enhanced the body of one of their more powerful sports cars, to provide an even more enjoyable driving experience than before.
Each of the F-Type Jaguar options are very fast, but they range in power starting with the standard V6 at 337 HP, to the V6S at 376 HP and finishing off with the massive V8 engine that offers an intimidating 542 HP that makes the vehicle very fun to drive.
The V8 option sprints from 0 to 60 in just 4.0 seconds and achieves a top speed of 186 MPH making this vehicle feel at home on any race track in your area. To rein in all this speed the vehicle is fitted with highly-effective carbon-ceramic brake pads. These massive steel brake systems offer improved stopping power and reliable performance over time which is something you need when you cram an engine this large into a sports car.
The additional rigidity offered by the enhanced Jaguar frame gave engineers room to enhance the overall drive quality of the vehicle by altering the springs. They increased the spring rates in both the front and back of the vehicle giving it a more dynamic feel without compromising on comfort or smoothness. These simple changes give the vehicle more agility than it had previously. It will also steer more precisely and offer a higher level of control to the driver.
The F-Type is designed to glide smoothly down the road, but it doesn’t feel mushy like some of the sports cars out there. You can still feel the road under you as you travel, and the steering is highly responsive. Dynamic stability helps keep this overpowered car firmly planted on the road even around sharp corners, but you have the option of turning off this electrical aid if you want to really test the limits of this beauty. The car oversteers easily, and swings around sharp corners with glee. It’s well balanced and has a polish that stands out even among luxury cars. Looking around the interior it would be difficult to pick out anything that needed to be changed, and it’s rare to find that in a car today.
The base F-type offers plenty of power and a luxurious interior, but the F-Type R provides even more power for the true racecar experience. It doesn’t matter which version of this powerhouse you decide on, their all a blast to drive, and they are all built with that attention to detail that separates a Jaguar from your average run of the mill sedan.
