2016 Jaguar F-Type All-Wheel Drive & Manual Priced

I admit the E-Type is my all-time favorite expression of personal transportation, but I can’t stand those Jaguar enthusiasts that’re disappointed by the F-Type. Introduced to great reception some two years ago, the F-Type is the spiritual successor of the XK-E, with the mandatory modern take on what a sporty Jag should be. But the 2016 model year made the F more complete than ever.

Previously available only with the eight-speed automatic from ZF and rear-wheel drive for absolute hoonage, the leaping cat brand from Coventry made the F-Type more appealing to a wider pool of potential customers thanks to a duo of new features: a six-speed manual transmission for the base V6 model (coupe or convertible) and an Instinctive All-Wheel Drive system for the F-Type S and V8.

Let’s not beat around the bush too much and start with the most important detail of them all: pricing. For the rear-wheel drive, 340 HP 2016 Jaguar F-Type V6 Coupe manual, the British customer will have to pay £51,250 on-the-road, which translates to $77,680 at current exchange rates. If you want the soft top convertible, that starts at £56,735 ($86,497). The 380 horsepower 2016 F-Type V6 Supercharged can be had with a stick shift too (£60,250/$91,855 for the coupe or £65,735/$100,219 for the soft top model).
Of course US pricing will be a lot lower than what the converter is telling us...
...but wait ’til you hear how much the Instinctive All-Wheel Drive-equipped models cost. Pricing for the coupe and convertible Jaguar F-Type S 3.0 V6 Supercharged AWD starts at £66,900 ($101,995) and £72,385 ($110,358).

Move on to the full-on 2016 Jaguar F-Type R 5.0 V8 Supercharged AWD and you’re looking at £91,650 ($139,729) for the coupe and £97,135 ($148,092) for the drop top. Again, pay no attention to the GBP-USD conversion ‘cos the US pricing will differ greatly from the figures presented above.

With the V8 R Coupe AWD slated to go on sale in the U.S. of A. in March and the V6 manual in July, here are the details you’ve been waiting for: the 2016 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe AWD hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, with the 2016 Jaguar F-Type V6 manual able to do the same stint in 5.3 seconds. Economy? That’ll be 25 mpg (9.4 l/100 km) for the R Coupe AWD and 28.8 mpg (8.1 l/100 km) for the V6 manual.
