2018 Jaguar F-Type is fast, sleek, modern and packed with luxury amenities. Jaguar has updated it for 2018, also with a more powerful engine. It may not look old, but the Jaguar F-type is entering its fifth model year, which typically means it’s past time to go under the knife for a little tuck. The changes are subtle yet provide the stylish sports car with the latest technology and a more refined look. The F-Type range offers sports cars that only Jaguar could create, effortless performance and precise agile handling, with everyday refinement and usability.
2018 Jaguar F-Type Exterior and Interior Design
The design may be little changed, Jaguar gave the F-type more substantive updates with new tech as well as new model variants. Jaguar’s F-Type is in the same boat with its gorgeous profile. And the reason Jaguar’s refresh doesn’t screw up the car is because, frankly, it’s hardly a refresh at all. So the handsome two-seater emerges with just a restyled front fascia, the two slotlike outer air intakes have been replaced and new LED headlights with an available adaptive function. The daytime running lights now double as the front indicators, while at the back there are darker lamp lenses. The coupe’s tight rear window gives the impression of the fenders flaring even more than they do, while the convertible just looks right, top up or down. A exhaust will play an off-kilter version of the engine’s boisterous tune.
The interior was also tweaked with gets new thinner seats this year to help increase room for tall drivers. Jaguar is also offering an expanded range of color and trim options for the interior, as well as new chrome and aluminum accents used to further differentiate between the various models. There’s a wide console between the driver and passenger, with a prominent grab handle for the passenger’s left hand in case there’s any doubt about this car’s true purpose. The Jaguar InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is now standard and features a faster processor. New safety systems are available this year to help you avoid incidents on your daily commute, plus a smartphone app that can download video from a mounted GoPro camera and overlay performance data on the image.
2018 Jaguar F-Type Release Date and Price
The 2018 Jaguar F-Type will be making its debut in the third quarter of 2017. With the range of customization options available, Jaguar estimates that there are 24 variants that the F-Type can be configured in. Jaguar has also ensured that the F-Type will be available with a wider range of drivers, with prices starting between $59,900 and $125,000.
2018 Jaguar F-Type Powertrain and Performance
Under the bonnet, Jaguar F-Type have some amazing engines. The new engine is the 2.0 liter turbocharged inline 4 found in other Jaguar models, and in the F-Type it has a specific tune of 296 horsepower and 295 pound feet of torque. That’s 56 horses and 44 lb ft more than what this four-cylinder turns out in the XE and XF sedans. It comes exclusively with an 8 speed automatic. That’s also very near the base supercharged 3.0 liter V6, which makes 340 horsepower and 332 pound feet of torque. We’d order either with the automatic transmission, all wheel drive for wet and dry handling prowess. That said, on the highest trim will exist the V8 is superlative. If you can afford it, buy the 2018 Jaguar F-Type top trim.
