2015 Jaguar F-TYPE Overview

Jaguar made its return to the sporty two-seat segment last year with the F-Type Roadster, nearly 40 years after the last E-Type was made. Aimed at the likes of the Porsche Boxster and 911, it's also been the biggest step at reinventing Jaguar as a performance brand, not one just known for making wood and leather-lined luxury sedans.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, a coupe joins the roadster in the F-Type lineup. And with the coupe also comes an even higher-performance model, the F-Type R Coupe with 550 horsepower from its supercharged V8. New carbon ceramic brakes are also available, as is the InControl Apps suite for the infotainment system.

Choosing Your Jaguar F-Type

Starting at $65,000, the F-Type Coupe is $4,000 less expensive than the convertible. They share a supercharged 340-horsepower V6 engine, which gets both cars from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds. An eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is the only transmission. Also standard are the Dynamic Mode, with sport suspension and sport exhaust, a performance braking system and 18-inch alloy wheels. A 380-watt Meridian audio system is included on all F-Types, with iPod/USB interfaces, Bluetooth streaming audio and 10 speakers. A 770-watt version with 12 speakers is optional, along with HD radio and satellite radio.

The V6 S models add an additional 40 horsepower to the supercharged V6 engine, reducing 0-60 time to 4.8 seconds and boosting top speeds to 171 mph. Also standard is a Dynamic Launch control system, as well as an Active Sport exhaust system and 19-inch wheels. Available as options are two-high performance braking systems, including the new carbon ceramic brakes.

The V8 S is the top version of the roadster. It gets a 5-liter supercharged V8 engine with 495 horsepower, bringing the 0-60 time to just 4.2 seconds and the top speed to 186 mph. Twenty-inch alloy wheels are standard, as is the super performance braking system and an electronic active differential. Carbon ceramic brakes are available.

The new R Coupe is the top F-Type for 2015. The 5-liter V8 gets even more power, now at 550. Zero to 60 takes 4 seconds and the driving modes are retuned for greater response. Torque vectoring is added to the active differential. Also included are quad exhaust pipes.

CarsDirect Tip

All versions of the F-Type are achingly gorgeous, although the coupe has ever-so-slightly more practicality for two people on a weekend trip. Options are expensive, and performance in the V6 cars is nothing to sneeze at, so clearly they represent more of value than the V8 models.
