Vicious and Vociferous: 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE
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.
