Overview

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

A new turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is introduced at the entry level. The S trim has been discontinued and in its stead is the R-Dynamic trim level and a limited-edition 400 Sport version. LED headlights are now on the menu, along with an upgraded infotainment system, self-parking feature and lighter seats. See the 2018 Jaguar F-Type models for sale near you

Which F-TYPE is the Best?

For the complete Jaguar F-Type experience, choose a version with the V8. It doesn't have to be the full-on SVR, the R will be more than adequate. If the show is more important than the go, the base version can easily handle those duties.

How Much Does a 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE Cost?

The 2018 Jaguar F-Type is available as either a 2-seater convertible with a power-retractable fabric top or a 2-seater coupe with a glass roof. Both versions come in base, R-Dynamic, 400 Sport, R and SVR trim levels.

The base F-Type coupe ($60,895) starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, an automatic rear spoiler, steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles, sport exhaust with center-mounted dual tailpipes, rain-sensing wipers, leather/suede-effect fabric upholstery, 6-way adjustable seats with driver's-side memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel (tilt-telescope), a self-dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, an engine start button, an 8-in touchscreen infotainment system, navigation, a USB slot, HD and satellite radios and a 12-speaker 770-watt Meridian audio system.

The R-Dynamic ($80,895) has the 380-hp V6.

The 400 Sport ($90,495) comes with more power, as well as leather upholstery, ambient cabin lighting and a heated steering wheel.

The F-Type R ($100,895) gets the supercharged V8, 20-in wheels, sport exhaust with quad tailpipes (and a button to open up the sound), stronger brakes, an electronic torque-vectoring limited-slip differential, heated sport seats and rear-parking sensors. The coupe has a powered tailgate.

The SVR ($122,895) has the most power, plus a titanium exhaust system, a carbon-fiber spoiler, parking sensors at the front, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, quilted stitching in the leather-covered seats and a simulated suede headliner.

Options include a heated windshield, a carbon-fiber roof for the coupe, active-safety features like blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, plus a pricey but strong carbon-ceramic brake system in the sportier trims.

The convertible's top takes 12 seconds to go up or down, and it can operate at speeds of up to 30 mph.

Trunk space is tight in the convertible: 7 cu ft. The coupe is only marginally more accommodating at 11 cu ft.

Competition

2018 Jaguar F-TYPE vs the competition

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray -- The Corvette is comparable in many respects to the V8-powered F-Type models and costs much less.

2018 Porsche 718 Boxster -- For pure driving enjoyment, it doesn't get much better than this. However, there's no engine in the Boxster's portfolio to match the F-Type's V8.

2018 Porsche 911 -- The larger 911 competes closely with V8-engined F-Type models in both price and performance.

Used Aston Martin V8 Vantage -- Sensational looks. It's an entry-level model, but still feels incredibly special.
