2016 Jaguar F-Type Review

May 26th, 2015 by

2016 Jaguar F-TypeAs one of the most aggressive models that Jaguar offers, the F-TYPE has undergone several changes for the 2016 model year. The 2015 Jaguar F-TYPE was incredibly impressive, but Jaguar knew there were a few things they could do to make it even better. Thankfully, we at Jaguar Freeport can safely say that the heart and soul of the vehicle has stayed the same. Here is our 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE review.

Under the Hood

Though the rear-wheel drive V8 option was eliminated, the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE still has plenty of power to offer. It runs on either a V8 or one of two powerful V6 engines, churning out 340 hp and 380 hp respectively. Both V6 engines are available with all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, but make no mistake: this vehicle is track-ready. The V8 version generates a whopping 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. And while the V8 only comes attached to an all-wheel drive system, that system adapts to offer a truly thrilling track experience.

Other Changes and Impressions

As far as changes go, the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE replaces the hydraulic steering system with an electric power assistance that feels exquisitely similar. When it comes to shifting with a manual on the trim levels that have it, the action is smooth and affirming. The pedals have exceptionally responsive movement as well.

Other fixings include carbon ceramic brakes that can stop on a dime, an adaptive suspension, and a variable exhaust system. Overall this vehicle is very well equipped even at its base level, which starts at just under $66,000. Fully equipped with the V8 engine and all the exceptional options, the price is closer to $129,000, but for all of the abilities this Jaguar has, it’s well worth it.
