As the Jaguar I-Pace turns into the extravagance section’s initially devoted battery-electric auto to stand up to Tesla, the F-type enters 2019 with a less complex mission: to consume gas and look lovely.
Panther’s refreshed two-seater will begin at $61,745 for the roadster and $64,845 for the convertible, an expansion of $850 over the new-for-2018 four-chamber base model. Renamed P300, the passage level F-type accompanies a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four motor useful for 296 strength and 295 pound-feet of torque, only with raise wheel drive and an eight-speed programmed transmission. The three supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 models whittle down to two—the 400 Sport was just for 2018—with either 340 stallions and 332 lb-ft in the P340 or 380 horses and 339 lb-ft in the P380, which was once in the past called the S. Both V-6 models can be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission and back wheel drive ($69,845 to begin for the P340 car and $83,045 for the P380 R-Dynamic car; convertibles include $3000). All-wheel drive is constrained to the programmed P380 and costs another $3000 (a programmed P340 costs $1300 additional).
While brake-based torque vectoring is currently standard on all F-type models, the P380 R-Dynamic includes a constrained slip raise differential, versatile dampers, 20-inch wheels (up from the standard 18s and discretionary 19s), and the (as we would see it) 100 percent required alternative that is the driver-switchable dynamic fumes. This framework used to be standard on S and every single manual trim however now is a $225 remain solitary choice. Try not to drive a F-type without one.
The F-type R, with its 550-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, is the priciest overhaul. It costs $101,745 to begin, and it must be had with all-wheel drive and the programmed transmission. The 575-hp SVR brings a titanium deplete, additional carbon fiber, and enough mods to securely achieve 200 mph, and it begins at $123,745. Convertibles on both V-8 trims include $3100.
The 2018 F-type included LED headlights, computerized crisis braking, path takeoff cautioning, a reinforcement camera, and the redesigned InControl Touch Pro infotainment framework as standard. Accordingly, very little changes for 2019. Eighteen outside hues join another SVO Premium Palette, which implies it’s never again conceivable to arrange a brilliant orange F-type without dropping in any event $4900. Matte completions are currently accessible in those 18 shades for $8500. However another 20-inch wheel configuration is accessible as a component of a carbon-earthenware brake bundle, which costs up to a heavy $14,740 additional, contingent upon display.

Two no-cost choices are our undisputed top choices: a back identification erase (evacuating everything aside from the Jaguar logo and leaper) and a spoiler erase on SVR models. In any case, evacuating the settled articulating wing on the SVR conveys serious results to the proprietor’s sense of self, similar to a speed limiter set to the R’s 186-mph top speed. Inside, the F-type dons another 10-inch touchscreen that traverses two inches more than previously, because of the expulsion of the physical alternate route catches on the left and right sides. A frameless rearview reflect and new bezel trim for the side air vents round out the progressions.
The 2019 F-sort should achieve merchant parts in May, looking as mind blowing as ever.
