The Jaguar F-Type won’t be any quicker for the 2017 model year, but it’ll definitely be easier on your wallet.

Coventry, UK’s finest sports car manufacturer, has announced official pricing information for the 2017 F-Type Coupe and Convertible, and they start at $61,400 and $65,400, respectively. That’s $3,600 and $2,700 less than their 2016 model year equivalents, which will give their owners plenty of extra cash to spend on tires and gas. None of these prices include the $995 destination charge, however.

Despite the price cut, the duo will come with more standard features than they do today, such as a new six-way adjustable “partially electric” seat, valet mode, and solar-attenuating windshield glass, which reduces the intensity of the sun’s rays inside the cabin. The Coupe and Convertible will continue to offer a Meridian surround sound system, navigation, satellite radio, leather seats, and Jaguar’s InControl app suite as standard as well.

The entry-level hardtop and droptop will continue to be powered by a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 that produces 340 very loud horsepower. And unlike their V8-powered brother the F-Type R — which only offers an eight-speed “QuickShift” automatic — the base models can be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.

Though the MSRPs haven’t been released yet, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type lineup will once again include the F-Type S, the F-Type S AWD, and the F-Type R, alongside the entry-level offerings. Engine specs are still under wraps, but we expect them to remain unchanged as they have in the rest of the lineup.

As a refresher, the 2016 F-Type S features the same 3.0-liter V6 as the regular F-Type, but it’s been retuned to offer 380 hp. Power output remains unchanged in the AWD variant, but in the F-Type R, a growling, rip-roaring V8 is charged with moving the car forward. The 5.0-liter supercharged powerplant rockets the AWD car forward with 550 hp, ensuring the trip to 60 mph comes in just 3.9 seconds.

The 2017 F-Type will growl its way into U.S. showrooms in the late spring of 2016.

2018 Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar’s F-Type sports car is getting a refreshed look, new powertrains, and cool technology for the 2018 model year. Debuting at this year’s New York Auto Show, the updated F-Type now has a wider range of variants, making the model accessible to more people.

The 2018 F-Type headliner is an entry-level version powered by a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Even with a smaller motor, the most basic F-Type can hit 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, thanks in part to a weight savings of 114 pounds compared to the V6 model. The only transmission option will be an eight-speed automatic.

Jaguar’s 2018 F-Type gets subtle styling tweaks, GoPro integration
2018 Jaguar F-Type

It may not look it, but the current Jaguar F-Type is a fairly old design by industry standards. Jag's sports car is about to enter its sixth model year, so to keep it fresh, designers conducted a little plastic surgery, added new tech, and reshuffled the lineup of F-Type models.

The updated F-Type looks almost the same as the outgoing version, which is not a problem. Rather than try to fix what isn't broken, designers made subtle changes like adding smaller, rounder air intakes alongside the mouth-like grille, and equipping the F-Type with LED headlights. These headlights have an adaptive function that allows them to switch between four modes: City, Country, Motorway, and Bad Weather.

On Tuesday, Jaguar’s latest F-Type series sports cars announced they can offer more than an incredible drive. Thanks to a new GoPro partnership, Jag drivers can now turn their cruises into a real-life video game with a highlight reel. ReRun, an upcoming iOS app, will use the car’s Bluetooth and new infotainment system to turn a GoPro into a high-end dash cam.

By syncing the car with the camera through that Bluetooth connection, the footage can be paired with what the Jaguar is doing. The app integrates overlays that detail the car’s speed, throttle, braking force, g-force, gear selection, trip mileage and even fuel level and steering wheel position into the footage, turning the drive into something that looks like a screenshot.
