CR Model Summary
Jaguar's F-Type resurrects the brand's sports-car heritage. Both V6 and V8 supercharged engines are offered, ranging from 340-to 575-hp. The eight-speed automatic works well, but the shifter is fussy. For the convertible, Jaguar chose a soft-top design in the interest of folding speed, lighter weight, and trunk space. In initial drives we noted that the body is solid and free of shakes, and open top motoring is free of wind buffeting. The exhaust note is quite brash. The ride is very taut and controlled, and handling is responsive and capable, with communicative steering. The coupe body style can be had in an R-version, which features a 550-hp V8. Options for 2016 include all-wheel drive and a manual transmission.
