Jaguar's F-Type is a bold exercise in building the perfect sports car. The range of V6 and V8 powerplants suit the chassis perfectly, making it a serious performance machine to compete with the likes of the Porsche Boxster, BMW Z4 and the Audi TTS. The F-Type also gives V8-equipped competitors such as the Corvette and Mercedes SLK55 AMG a serious run for their money as well. For 2016, Jaguar has taken even greater steps to create the most competitive perfect sports car they can with the addition of all wheel drive and a manual transmission for the driving purists.

What's New For 2016

Jaguar introduced the F-Type Convertible last year. This year they've introduced a coupe version of the car. A 6-speed manual and available all-wheel drive have been added to the powertrain options. The Meridian 12-speaker audiophile stereo is standard equipment for 2016.


  • Basic Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Compare the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE

Loading Comparison...


The Jaguar F-Type, now in its third year, is the first true sports car Jaguar has built in 40 years, since the demise of the E-Type. It’s true to the heritage without being retro.

The F-Type runs in the league with the Porsche Caymans and Boxster and the Chevrolet Corvette. Its aluminum architecture and chassis structure is riveted and bonded, light and rigid, although at 3500 pounds, the F-type is bigger and heavier than both Porsches. Even so, we think it’s more entertaining to drive than any car in its class, except the Cayman S, and maybe the Stingray Z51.

For 2016, Jaguar F-Type offers all-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission (although not together in the same car). Long live the manual gearbox! Finally a traditional Jaguar you can actually play with, like days of old. Although the 8-speed automatic with manual mode is satisfying.

There are a number of powertrains for the F-Type. There are two 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engines; one makes 340 horsepower, accelerates from 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds, and hits 161 mph, while the other, called the F-Type S, makes 380 hp, goes to 60 in 4.8 seconds, and hits 171 mph. It gets an active exhaust system, flat-bottom steering wheel, and driving modes.

Getting top billing for 2016 is a new F-Type Convertible R, which uses a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 making 550 horsepower, storming from a standing start to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and zooming all the way to 186 mph. It comes with a paddle-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.

The V6 is better balanced and more responsive, sweet and suitable to the car’s dynamics. In fact, the V6 engine is based on the V8; they share the same all-aluminum architecture, direct fuel injection, dual independent variable cam timing (DIVCT), and water-cooled twin vortex supercharger mounted in the V of the engine block.

For 2016 some service features are added, namely a five year or 60,000 mile warranty that includes maintenance, roadside assistance, and connected services.


The 2016 Jaguar F-Type comes with leather upholstery, leatherette trim, climate control. F-Type coupe ($65,000) and convertible ($68,100) come standard with 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 6-speed manual gearbox; 8-speed automatic is optional. F-Type S comes with 380-hp versions of the same engine. The F-Type R Coupe ($103,600) and convertible ($106,450) feature the 550-hp supercharged V8 and come with upgraded leather seats and trim. Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is available.


The F-Type is drop-dead gorgeous, with languid lines, muscular shoulders and powerful haunches. The flowing character lines along the sides are emphasized in the coupe because of the streamlined roofline. The coupe is the best-looking, purist version. Keeping it smooth, the door handles are inset, extended by the remote key fob.

A black eggcrate grille looks Jaguar all the way, including the shark gills on each side with LED lighting nearby. The headlamps are bending trapezoids. The hood has a sharp power bulge straight up the center. Regrettably, imitation intakes and vents are added to that hood, as well as the fenders and fascia.

Twin rollbar hoops have fairings so they don’t look like steel bars. On the convertible, the multi-layered and insulated top lowers in 12 seconds at up to 30 miles per hour, and serves as its own tonneau cover.

There’s a graceful ridge on top of the rear fenders that flows down to the center of the LED taillamps, thin elegant trapezoids that wrap forward all the way to the back of the rear wheels. The diving rear on the coupe is reminiscent of the E-Type. There’s a black diffuser with twin exhaust pipes coming out the center with the V6, a nod to the E-Type of 1961; double outboard twin pipes are used with the heavy-breathing V8. The rear spoiler is invisibly flat, until the car reaches 60 mph.


If you overlook the luxurious leather, available in red, and the big LCD, the interior says sports car, although we could do with a little less swoop. There is no wood. Carbon fiber is what’s happening today.

Jaguar calls the cabin asymmetric, as the controls and instruments are canted toward the driver. On the passenger side, it feels remote and not much like a sports car, as a big dashboard is so far away. However the passenger gets a grab handle; what’s missing is a sign saying: Hang on, you’re gonna need this.

But for the driver, the cockpit comes to life, as he or she is the center of attention. The panel is clean and sporty, with gauges recessed in binnacles. The speedo and tach are big. The bucket seats are excellent. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is nice and fat (flat-bottomed is optional), and the shifting paddles are tidy. The start button is the same orange that deep-sea divers use.

The knobs are functional, not fancy. They’re easy to recognize and they work. The climate controls on the center stack don’t require abstract thinking to use. Headroom is snug for tall people, and legroom tight for regular people, but the power seats are adjustable, supportive and comfortable even with their aggressive bolstering. The standard audio system is a 770-watt Meridian, with satellite radio.

The 11.7 cubic feet of cargo area behind the seats on the couple might hold two golf bags, but the 7 cubic feet or trunk space in the convertible is tiny, less than a Mazda MX-5. It’s the price you pay for the wind in your hair, a small price we think.

Driving Impressions

The V8 might be humongously powerful with its 550 horsepower, and its exhaust note will rouse the neighbors and your own lost youth, but the V6 feels more nimble and alive, more like a sports car and less like a hot rod. Even so, its weight can be felt. Not surprisingly, the coupe handles better than the convertible, given its stiffer structure. However with available adaptive dampers, the convertible’s handling comes closer to the coupe’s.

The F-Type is a car that can be driven casually, but it’s also a car that loves to be driven aggressively. We like the feel of the S model, the V6 with 380 horsepower, the most. We got both S cars on the track, where the V6 worked better because it’s better balanced. The rigid aluminum double-wishbone suspension keeps the car precise, although not like the Porsche Boxster or Cayman.

The Coupe R is the highest performing of the F-Types, ready for the track, with full grip and response, but frankly it was too powerful to be as much fun as the V6. In fact, the V6 works better everywhere except to pass on two-lanes. Still, the V6 gets to redline 7000 real fast.

Both engines use a close-ratio 8-speed automatic transmission that loves to play, using the paddles. Jaguar calls it Quickshift, and it is. In manual mode. the shifts are sharp and obedient at all times, with no over-rides. It’s fun and easy to do consecutive downshifts like in a Formula One car, using the paddles. The transmission does rev matching so each downshift is perfect. Manual shifting can also be done at the lever.

The brakes on the F-Type S are quite sensitive around town; on the track, they’re fantastic.

The Dynamic Mode is one of the best we’ve come across. Jaguar calls it Configurable Dynamics, meaning you can select which elements you want to sharpen, among steering, throttle, transmission and suspension.

But the first button you will play with is the one that changes the exhaust note, standard on the S models. BMW, Porsche and Mustang used the trick before Jaguar, but the Jaguar system is best because it’s pure; electronically controlled bypass valves in the rear of the exhaust open under hard acceleration. The four pipes in the V8 are raucous as the acceleration snaps your neck, while meanwhile you fly beneath the decibel meter when cruising.


The Jaguar F-Type is a worthy successor to the legendary E-Type. The 380-hp supercharged V6 is sweeter and better balanced than the 550-hp supercharged V8. Both use superb 8-speed automatic transmissions with paddles. The aluminum structure is state of the art.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
