What's New on the 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE?

Seeing as it's time for a refresh, the 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE saw a few minor exterior updates along with an additional engine option, a limited-edition model and new innovative technology features. While the F-TYPE received a redesigned front fascia with new LED headlights, front bumper and intake layout, there's also more options regarding paint colors, interior colors and wheel designs.   

 

Arguably the biggest news for the 2018 F-TYPE is the new base 2.0-liter inline-four turbocharged engine that generates 296 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft of torque at 1500 rpm. This engine, along with the other engine options, is paired exclusively with the Quickshift eight-speed automatic transmission allowing this sports car to go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. Also new for 2018 is the Limited-Edition 400 Sport model that features a 400-horsepower supercharged V-6 engine. This new limited-edition model also flaunts 20-inch wheels and a special Dark Satin Grey finish. 

 

If those updates alone weren't exciting enough, there's also new technology in the F-TYPE , including a new standard infotainment system, the Touch Pro. The Touch Pro features an 8-inch touchscreen, map-zooming functionality, and a 4G LTE data connection. The new features of this system will impress any driver with the ability to send an ETA to desired contacts and calculate whether you have enough gas to get to your destination. Not only that, but drivers who want to show off their F-TYPE have the option to add ReRun. This technology allows you to integrate data pulled from the car into GoPro videos and even add an instrument-cluster graphic that shows speed, gear, throttle position and more. From the new incredibly powerful engine option to the Limited-Edition 400 Sport model, 2018 very well seems to be the most exciting year for the F-TYPE yet. 

History of the Jaguar F-TYPE 

The striking Jaguar C-X16 Concept was revealed in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, offering a glimpse into the future of innovate sports cars. Since its debut, many would say sports cars have never been the same. Building upon this concept vehicle is the Jaguar F-TYPE model that unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. This was Jaguar's first two-seater sports car for 50 years and gained national attention while winning the World Car Design of the Year Award. 

 

In 2013 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Jaguar debuted the coupe version, revealing for the first time, the F-TYPE R Coupé that was to go on sale in the spring of 2014. At the same time, the performance-based 550PS F-TYPE R model also hit the market and astonished drivers with its ability to hit 60mph in just 4 seconds with a top speed of 186mph.

 

Along with the release of the 2014 F-TYPE , was a unique hand-built limited-edition model, the F-TYPE Project 7. With only 250 being manufactured, this model went from a sketch on a piece of paper to the production line in just a few short months. This F-TYPE flaunted a roadster body that encompassed the legendary look of one of Jaguar's most well-known racing cars, the Jaguar D-Type.

 

2016 was the year of expansion for the F-TYPE , going from six to fourteen model options. It also became equipped with All-Wheel Drive and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics that further enhanced its performance in various conditions. For drivers who preferred to manually shift gears, Jaguar began offering a six-speed variation that established an even deeper connection between car and driver. Of course, this was also the year the 550PS F-TYPE R Convertible was introduced.
