2016 Jaguar F-TYPE: Engine Specs and Performance Features

The 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE is undoubtedly one of the most desirable sports cars on the road today. Possessing powerful engine choices, responsive handling, beautiful styling and a luxurious cabin, the new F-TYPE offers a thrilling driving experience for wherever your journeys take you. Check out its impressive engine specs and performance features.

Three Highly Advanced Engine Choices

For the 2016 F-TYPE, power is delivered by a range of three highly advanced engines. Offerings include a 3.0L V6 340 HP in the F-TYPE, 3.0L V6 380 HP in the F-TYPE S and F-TYPE S AWD and a 5.0L V8 550 HP in the F-TYPE R. All of these powerful engines feature a Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger, mounted in the “V” of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions. The supercharged engines also provide linear power delivery and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, which makes the engines more responsive to the driver’s demands.

New Manual Transmission

For the sports car purist and driving enthusiast, the F-TYPE and F-TYPE S RWD models offer a choice of a new 6-speed manual transmission. It features a precision-engineered short-throw shifter, which means that the gear changes are made quickly and smoothly. Consumers can also opt for the “Quickshift” 8-speed automatic transmission, which uses closely spaced gears, helping the engine deliver optimum power and toque at all speeds.

Available with the “QuickShift” automatic transmission, the technologically advanced all-wheel-drive system works with Jaguar’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) to constantly analyze the needs of all four wheels independently. It is very precise in determining where to deliver power to optimize traction and stability. The IDD system also senses impending understeer or oversteer situations. If the front or rear wheels start to loose traction during rapid cornering, the IDD swiftly deploys more power to the other wheels, which maximizes control in challenging conditions.

Performance is further enhanced on the 2016 F-TYPE by its aerodynamic shape, refined and dynamic suspension, quick-response steering and available performance braking systems. And for the full sports car experience, the Active Sport Exhaust, standard on the F-TYPE with manual transmission, uses Active Bypass Valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound.
