Vicious and Vociferous: 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE

May 19th, 2015 by

It’s good to run with the cool crowd.  Just ask the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE.  As the new kid on the block, the F-TYPE had a whole lot to prove when it arrived last year.  Not surprisingly, it staked its claim in the conversation of luxury sports coupes, making one heck of a first impression.

And now, it’s time for round two.  Ready to roll with this naughty knockout?  Then get going with the video below:

At the tippy-top of the model range is where you’ll find the loud and lusty R model.  Its performance specs – a whopping 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque – elicited from its supercharged 5.0-liter V8, have carried over from the previous iteration unchanged.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?

The biggest change to the R model – and the entire F-TYPE array, for that matter – is by far the addition of all-wheel drive.  Standard on the R and optional on all other trims, the all-wheel drive platform is a huge boon to the F-TYPE’s overall driving demeanor.  With this system in tow, the F-TYPE now is an all-season all-star.

For more information about this tenacious two-door, or to take the wheel of one, we invite you to swing by our Great Neck, NY showroom.  Our seasoned staff is available to address your every question regarding the fantastic F-TYPE, or any other Jaguar model that might be on your short list.
