2015 Jaguar F-Type
2015 Jaguar F-Type

New for 2015

The Jaguar F-Type remains largely unchanged for the 2015 model year, but an F-Type Coupe is introduced, which allows Jaguar to compete more directly with Porsche 911s and Chevrolet Corvettes. The F-Type Coupe is powered by the same V-6 and V-8 engines as the convertible, but adds a new high performance F-Type R that increases the output of the supercharged V-8 to 550 hp.

Vehicle Overview

The Jaguar F-Type marks the return of a sports car to the automaker, one it’s needed for years. Available as a coupe and convertible, the F-Type is reminiscent of the classic E-Type, but with its own modern flair, and comes equipped with one of the best exhaust notes to come straight from any automaker's factory. Once the XK coupe and convertible are discontinued after the 2015 model year, the F-Type continues as Jaguar’s sole sporty two-door.

Summary

The 2015 Jaguar F-Type is a rear-drive sports car, available in coupe or convertible forms, and with a quartet of engines that send their power through a ZF eight-speed automatic. The base engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that’s available at two output levels, for F-Type and F-Type S models. The standard engine makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, while the S models produce 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. Each level of performance receives its own unique final drive ratio (3.15:1 standard, and 3.31:1 on S models), making performance distinct on each model, while retaining an intoxicating exhaust note. EPA-estimated fuel efficiency is 20/28 mpg (city/highway) for base models, and 19/27 mpg for S models.
Like the V-6, the available supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 is available in two different power levels, with the F-Type S V-8 Convertible making 495 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, and the F-Type R Coupe making 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated fuel economy is an identical 16/23 mpg.
The 2015 F-Type's convertible top can be raised or lowered in 12 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Notable features on the F-Type include HID headlights, adaptive front lighting (with automatic high beams), a powered rear hatch on the coupe, an active rear spoiler (raises above 60 mph on convertible and 70 mph on coupe), configurable driving dynamics, an eight-inch infotainment screen, active center air vents (they raise when needed and stay hidden otherwise), customizable interior lighting, blind spot monitoring, a closing vehicle sensor (if a vehicle is approaching quickly from behind at speed that might make lane changes more dangerous), and a dynamic stability control system.
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type has not been evaluated by the NHTSA or the IIHS.

What We Think

We’re not kidding when we say the 2015 Jaguar F-Type has one of the best exhaust notes available straight out of a showroom, regardless of engine choice. The selectable active exhaust option is a box we checked on our Four Seasons 2015 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe, an option that “opens bypass valves in the exhaust under hard acceleration. The sweet mechanical music that follows, especially the crackle and pop when you lift off the gas, are worthy of an Italian supercar.” This is standard on V-6 S, V-8 S, and R models. We’ve heard more artificial exhaust notes piped through speaker systems this year than we’d care to admit, but the Jaguar is pure, unsynthesized, goodness.
The F-Type isn’t all aural enjoyment, however, as it has the handling chops to back up the soundtrack. In a Driven Review of a 2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe we noted that, “when the surface is rainswept and slick, you’ll appreciate that a brake-type torque vectoring system helps tug the front end toward the apex of a corner, while an electric-type limited-slip differential puts down the power evenly through the rear wheels as you accelerate away.” Handling was excellent, and in our Driven Review of a 2015 Type R Coupe we said “the R has the quickest steering ever fitted to a production-model Jaguar, blending spontaneous turn-in with delicate weighting and low effort. Having said that, the direction finder could still do with a bit more self-centering, a bit more concentration around the straight-ahead position, and a bit more feedback when held on (opposite) lock.”
The F-Type marks a turning point for the brand as it attempts to lure more than a few people from the German cars they’re used to. If you’re dying for AWD or a manual transmission, you only have to wait for the 2016 model, though both new features won't be available together: V-6 cars will get a stick-shift option, and V-8 cars will get AWD standard.
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type coupe is a sports car, not a grand touring car. While it’s generally civilized, the car always remains a pretty tough proposition -- a little noisy, a little uncomfortable, and a little more than you bargained for.

2015 Jaguar F Type S Coupe At Tire Rack 58
One look at the summer tires on our Four Seasons 2015 Jaguar F-Type was all the evidence we needed that our colleagues in Los Angeles had their fun while the car was stationed in Southern California. The rear tires were almost totally worn out, even though they had only covered about 15,000 miles. We knew we needed some fresh rubber for summer in Michigan, but we also were curious how much the beat-up tread was hindering our F-Type's performance. To find out, we asked Tire Rack, our official wheel and tire supplier, for some input.
