The new Jaguar F-Type will be offered with a choice of two engines: a 3-liter supercharged V6 used for the F-Type and F-Type S models and a 5-liter supercharged V8 used for the F-Type V8 S version. Both engines are offered with the company’s new Intelligent Stop/Start system that allows better fuel economy in certain urban driving conditions.
The base model is the Jaguar F-Type. It is powered by a supercharged V6 engine that delivers a total of 340 HP and 332 ft-lbs of torque at 3,500-5,500 rpm. It will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 161 mph. It will also go from 50 to 75 mph in just 3.3 seconds.
Next on the line-up, there’s the F-Type S. It gets a more powerful version of the V6: 380 HP and 339 lb-ft of torque at 3,500-5,500 rpm. This version will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 171 mph. It will go from 50 to 75 mph in just 3.1 seconds.
The top version is the F-Type V8 S. It gets a 5.0 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 495 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque produced over the 2,500-5,500 rpm. The extra power will allow the model to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and hit an incredible top speed of 186 mph. It will also go from 50 to 75 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
These engines will be mated to an eight-speed ‘Quickshift’ automatic transmission, specifically tuned by Jaguar for the F-type to prioritize acceleration. There is also an optional Active Exhaust system which enhances the exhaust note.
For those opting for track-driving activities, the S models can also be ordered with Dynamic Launch Mode and a mechanical limited-slip differential.
Depending on the version, Jaguar will also offer three different types of braking systems. The standard F-Type is offered with the Jaguar Performance system with 13.9-inch (354mm) front and 12.8-inch (325mm) rear brake discs with silver painted calipers. In the S version, the front gets larger 15-inch (380mm) brake discs.
The F-Type V8 S model is offered with a Super High Performance system with the largest set of brake discs fitted as standard to a Jaguar production car: 15-inch (380mm) front and 14.8-inch (376mm) rear
