New screen, new names, and more torque vectoring.
The Jaguar F-Type has been around since 2013, and although it is still a great sports car, it needed a little nip-and-tuck. For 2019, Jaguar has given the F-Type some subtle changes, all of which add up to a nice refresh. For starters, the 2019 model will adopt Jaguar's new naming scheme. The base F-Type P300 will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo producing 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The P300 will start at $61,745 for the coupe and $64,845 for the convertible with an eight-speed automatic sending power to the rear.
This represents a price increase of $850 compared to last year's model, justified by the addition of some new equipment. Brake-based torque vectoring is now standard across the F-Type range as is a new 10-inch InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. JRL says the system still doesn't have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility, but both are coming later this year. The P340 and P380 models each come with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6. The P340 starts at $69,845 for 335 hp and 332 pound-feet of torque, while the P380 ups it to 375 hp and 339 pound-feet for $83,845. Both V6 models are available with an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
AWD can be optioned for $3,000, and adaptive dampers, limited-slip differential, and 20-inch wheels are now standard. Jaguar mentioned that R models could potentially be dropped in favor of SVR models, but it looks like the R will last at least one more model year. The F-Type R and SVR are both unchanged for 2019, starting at $101,745 and $123,745 respectively. Even though it has been on the market for five years, the F-Type is still looking like a great sports car in the segment.
