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.
