Small but profound changes that lie ahead in the Jaguar F-Type and have been presented at the Hall of Los Angeles . Goes from having 6-14 versions, with different finishes and including the AWD system we saw in action a few days ago , the ability to rely on manual changes and the release of the Jaguar F-Type R Convertible .
Although Jaguar has chosen for this generation notation to American and calls this new F-Type MY2016, the fact is that come out next spring. Until then, or perhaps with some advance- we not know more than technical advances, and little or no scaling of finishes and prices.
In the Jaguar F-Type Coupe 2016 we find the following models:
- F-Type Coupe (340 hp, rear-wheel drive and manual transmission or Quickshift)
- F-Type S Coupe (380 hp, rear-drive or AWD manual transmission or Quickshift)
- F-Type R Coupe (550 hp, rear-drive or AWD and transmission Quickshift)
Regarding F-Type Jaguar Convertible 2016 , we see the following:
- F-Type (340 hp, rear-wheel drive and manual or Quickshift transmission)
- F-Type S (380 hp, rear-drive or AWD manual transmission or Quickshift)
- F-Type R (550 hp, rear-drive or AWD and transmission Quickshift)
Jaguar F-Type 2016: now, with manual transmission
If there was something that had been criticized – from affection , but critical- the Jaguar F-Type from the first of his days it was the absence of a manual gearbox. A sport of its kind looked like it was crying, and finally the six-speed gearbox will respond to such requests, but only in the lower range versions, both Coupe and Convertible. Alternatively it will be the box ZF Quickshift eight gear ratios.
The shifter for the manual gearbox has also been developed in collaboration with ZF; lubrication by immersion but not spray oil on the gears, which reduces torque losses by the resistance of the axes of the fluid box. In operation, the lever is short distances (45 mm), and from Jaguar and warn that the escalation of relations and pedals are located that provide the spike-heeled. Description: Jaguar sportsmanship have understood that many expected the F-Type.
F-Type Jaguar AWD
Jaguar has pulled his brother SUV, Land Rover, and the developments made for the XF and XJ models with AWD, for technology driving all four wheels that allow him to give the sport of agility and precision by using IDD, Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, which involves the use of an electronic or mechanical slip differential asset in the case of the models with supercharged V6 engine.
The Jaguar F-Type AWD AWD, but only demand when conditions demand. If the system detects that the rear wheels are approaching the limit of grip available, electronically controlled center coupling transfers torque to the front axle. Thus oversteer risks are avoided.
Moreover, the torque split control by selective braking curve (TVbB), which was originally developed for the F-Type R Coupe is now available in all versions. This system allows mitigate understeer by stability control circuitry sports.
Outside section variations that do recognize the AWD are minimal. Besides discrete specific emblems, the aluminum bonnet incorporates in a more pronounced wheel drive centerlines, and on the sides we see new, more separate air inlets and advanced than the F-Type traction on the rear axle. The V6 AWD also include 19-inch wheels Volution Technical Grey silver tone or mirror polished.

As we see the full breakdown of the engines serves, in fact, the use of two development blocks and three maximum power plus the choice between manual or automatic transmissions and drive sent to the rear or full train.
In the dynamic part, it is worth noting a change in the steering system , which is no longer hydraulically as was referenced in Jaguar, but the F-Type brand gets into the car of attendances 100% electric (EPAS) . By a sufficiently detailed mapping, Jaguar engineers say they have banished “all traces of synthetic feeling that can affect some EPAS systems.” Also the mechanical work done on the steering column promises a feeling of true guidance.
More features such as optional items
In 2016 Jaguar F-Type, the interior benefits from a new dashboard with refurbished areas and indicators. Infotainment system also has been updated with faster browsing and for the first time, with maps on SD cards. Among the optional equipment, the new F-Type has the telematics functions and InControl Secure Remote, which allows the location of the vehicle in case of theft via a mobile application.
InControl Remote also lets you check everyday information more useful, as the fuel level in the tank or the state of the door lock. With this application you can also start the engine remotely, so the climate reaches desired cabin temperature before the driver sits behind the wheel of the vehicle.
Also optionally, the Sport Design Pack adds a new front diffuser, stirrups and side air intakes, and in the case of the F-Type Coupe also the fixed rear spoiler.These elements subtly enhance the F-Type style without distorting the general line of a sports car that broke the mold when it was first introduced and that due to this update only changes appearance.
