Before You Buy: 2016 Jaguar F-Type S

Before You Buy

Welcome to the launch of our new video series!

Let me be the first to welcome everyone to the launch of our brand new segment, "Before You Buy." Why am I so excited to make this announcement? Because CarBuzz is now expanding its YouTube channel with a series of walk around videos featuring today’s latest cars, trucks, and SUVs. These videos will work in conjunction with a full write-up for each vehicle. Our goal is provide readers with not only the official specs such as engine, transmission, and body style, but also a more in-depth look and discussion. A car is a major purchase and we want to help you make a smart buying decision.

So let’s get right to it: our first Before You Buy video is the 2016 Jaguar F-Type S. We’ve already published the full test drive review, but let’s take a closer look at what’s one of the best-looking cars on sale right now.

With its supercharged 3.0-liter V6 producing 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, the F-Type S shown here is actually the mid-range model. The base F-Type comes with the same V6, only power is down to 340 ponies. You can also opt for the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with over 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. But is the F-Type S roadster and coupe the so-called sweet spot of the entire F-Type lineup? Check out the video for our take on this, and be on the lookout for many more Before You Buy videos.
