KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Jack R. Nerad, Executive Editorial Director, KBB.com - Updated Date: 6/18/2013


For 40 years Jaguar has been capitalizing on the heritage and prestige derived from its legendary sports cars, while not actually having a credible 2-seat sports car in its model line, but the new-for-2014 Jaguar F-Type convertible is meant to change all that. Designed from the ground up to compete with the Porsche 911, the F-Type's aluminum-alloy chassis is covered by sleek, contemporary bodywork that is subtly referential to the legendary E-Type. Under the classically long hood resides one of three different powertrain choices, all supercharged and all featuring an ultra-sophisticated ZF automatic transmission that can be manually shifted via steering-wheel-mounted paddles. The comfortably tight cockpit channels the past and accentuates the future with a dash that houses a large Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) touch-screen.

You'll Like This Car If...

While Jaguar is playing the heritage card with its F-Type, the car stands on its own as a performance machine, a worthy competitor to the Porsche 911 while at the same time quite different.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you are looking for a Jaguar convertible to provide a comfy conveyance to the hair stylist to get another blue tint, you are seriously underestimating what the Jaguar F-Type offers in terms of sheer go-power.

What's New for 2014

The Jaguar F-Type is all-new for 2014, returning the brand to the 2-seat sports car market for the first time in decades.

Driving It Driving Impressions

So do you want to go fast, faster or fastest? That's the choice Jaguar gives you. The base F-Type convertible equipped with its high-tech 340-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is a serious performance machine, as its 5.1-second 0-to-60 mph time and electronically limited 161-mph top speed attest. And things just get hotter from there. The more highly strung V6 F-Type S benefits from an increase of 40 horsepower enabling it to bolt to 60 in 4.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 171 mph. Those are compelling numbers, but the real mind-blower is the 5.0-liter V8 S model that can induce vertigo by vaulting from zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds. Its top speed is 186 mph. All this straight-line performance is matched by a well-controlled suspension, quick steering and huge brakes, and while the F-Type can be a handful if you floor the accelerator at rest, the car is filled with electronic driver aids that can tame the beast a bit if you want them to.

Favorite Features

5.0-LITER SUPERCHARGED V8 ENGINE
The F-Type is filled with innovative features, but its ultra-performance credentials are assured by its 495-horsepower supercharged alloy-block V8. Combining high-tech niceties like direct injection, variable cam timing and a water-cooled intercooler, the engine pours out streams of velvety torque.

8-SPEED QUICKSHIFT AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
You'd be hard-pressed to find an automatic transmission more intelligent than the ZF 8-speed in the F-Type. It actually detects your driving style and provides shift-mapping that matches your whims, kind of like eHarmony in a gearbox.
