CR Model Summary
Jaguar's high-end F-Type coupe and convertible have had a few assets added to their portfolios for 2016. The first is a six-speed manual transmission available in the RWD models equipped with V6 engines. The silky smooth eight-speed automatic remains standard, and it is the only gearbox available with the V8. The F-Type offers all-wheel-drive, increasingly a must-have for any luxury-car marque in rear-drive only. Electric power steering will replace the old-school hydraulic power steering on all models. The F-Type also gets Jaguar's JustDrive smartphone app, which builds on the new InControl touch-screen infotainment system. It presents a very simple mobile-web center-dash screen using a USB connection and Bluetooth to relay your voice commands to call up music, voice texts, and navigation data in addition to access to numerous other apps.
