New Jaguar F-TYPE in Charlotte


The 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE in Charlotte is Closer--and More Versatile--Than Ever

Jaguar's iconic two-seater has seen some very interesting updates for the 2018 model, and few of them actually have anything to do with its design. The bulk of new features found in the newest F-TYPE are under the hood, or at the driver's fingertips. However, one major change may be particularly attractive to drivers in Charlotte, Concord, Matthews, Huntersville, or Fort Mill who have lusted after a Jaguar F-TYPE: with the addition of new trim levels and a new, smaller, punchier engine, there's a whole new cat in the family, and it starts at under $60,000.

The 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE is available in two body styles, and five trim levels: F-TYPE, F-TYPE R-DYNAMIC, F-TYPE 400 SPORTS, F-TYPE R, and the intimidating, ultra-high-performance F-TYPE SVR. All models are available as either a coupe or a convertible, and with style/trim/powertrain taken into consideration, the new 2018 F-TYPE offers nearly 30 different configurations.

Sport-Inspired Interiors

Jaguar has always been famous for its fine interiors--and while the 2018 F-TYPE doesn't see any radical changes or updates for materials or overall design, its luxurious and well-equipped cabin options are as intuitively-constructed, driver-centric, and premium as ever. In tech, an updated InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, with 8.0-inch haptic touchscreen, now comes standard across the full lineup for expanded usability and even 4G LTE data connection. For passionate fans of performance, the Jaguar F-TYPE also offers a new "ReRun" technology, which can overlay driving data onto videos created by your GoPro camera.

Heritage Style in Two Forms

There are styling cues that exist across the full lineup of 2018 F-TYPE models, from a four-cylinder coupe to a V8 convertible, that instantly identify this award-winning, and widely-beloved, sports car as the Jaguar F-TYPE. From the Roman-nosed slope at the hood, to the sleek character lines at the side, to the tight tuck at the rear, the new F-TYPE is as artful and beautiful to look at as it is exhilarating to drive. Choose convertible, coupe, and your preferred trim level to see all the forms that the 2018 F-TYPE can take.

Powertrain

The 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE introduces a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder for the first time into the lineup--a move that may have shocked some enthusiasts, but makes sense as a smart move into the future. Jaguar keeps the previous line's selection of engine options--including powerful V6 and V8 models--but the addition of a turbo-four allows for an even wider availability of configurations, and a lighter, more efficient F-TYPE. Each unique engine type, and drivetrain/transmission, brings with it a completely different feel and style--we encourage you to learn more about the different 2018 Jaguar F-TYPE powertrains.

Daily Practicality: Few drivers in Charlotte are buying or leasing a 2018 F-TYPE because they're looking for a practical daily driver--there are plenty of athletic, roomy options within the lineup for that. But the Jaguar F-TYPE is nothing if not obliging, so for your daily needs there's a bit of spare room (about 11 cubic feet in the coupe, 7 cubic feet in the convertible) in the trunk to store a few bags or a suitcase.

Heart-Pounding Pleasure: As with all other factors that make the F-TYPE a true Jaguar spirit, driving feel will vary dramatically in the 2018 model based on which powertrain and styling you choose: the 2.0-liter turbo F-TYPE is light, athletic, and youthful; the V6 F-TYPE is robust yet refined; and the supercharged V8 F-TYPE is loud, boisterous, and just a little bit wild. Zero to sixty happens in under six seconds for the lineup, with the awe-inspiring 2018 F-TYPE SVR offering a sprint time of under four seconds. It's one of the purest Jaguar sports cars in the world, and the thrill is real.
