The 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Performance Specs Raise It to New Heights
The 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE performance specs are the highlight of the new Jaguar, with four different engines ranging from 340 hp all the way to 575 hp. Each engine’s power is augmented by a twin-vortex supercharger, and drivers have their choice of manual or automatic transmission. The supercharger ensures a linear power delivery and helps reach 0-60 mph times of as little as 3.5 seconds.
Four Different Engines
There isn’t a wrong choice among four precision-engineered and supercharged engines, though they are different. Let’s look at the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE performance specs:
- A 3.0L supercharged V6 engine is standard on the Jaguar, rated at 340 hp (6,500 RPM) and a maximum of 332 lb-ft of torque (3,500-5,000 RPM). This base engine features a 0-60 mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 161 mph.
- Stepping up to the F-TYPE S model upgrades the 3.0L supercharged V6 engine and raises its output to 380 hp (6,500 RPM) and 339 lb-ft of torque (3,500-5,000 RPM) with a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 171 mph.
- The F-TYPE R steps up to a 5.0L supercharged V8 engine capable of 550 hp (6,500 RPM) and 502 lb-ft of torque (2,500-5,500 RPM). The R has a top speed of 186 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
- At the top is the F-TYPE SVR with an upgraded 5.0L supercharged V8 that features 575 hp (6,500 RPM) and 516 lb-ft of torque (3,500-5,500 RPM) with a top speed of 200 mph. The F-TYPE SVR goes from 0-60 mph in only 3.5 seconds.
Driving enthusiasts will be happy to know that the F-TYPE has a manual gearbox available with six speeds, engineered for performance driving. The QuickShift automatic transmission delivers swift and smooth shifting across its eight gear ratios as well.
Advanced Braking Technologies
You may not want to tap the brakes when taking full advantage of an F-TYPE SVR’s 5.0L supercharged V8 engine, but you can rest easy knowing that Jaguar has installed some of the most advanced braking technologies on your new vehicle. The available Carbon Ceramic Matrix Braking system is the most high-performance braking system to appear on a Jaguar street vehicle with 4-piston rear calipers and 6-piston front calipers as well as a set of unique forged alloy wheels.
