Short Review

For 2017, the new model debuts with new trim levels: an entry-level trim model that is a bit more accessible, and an ultra-high-performance SVR trim level. Other than that the new 2017 Jaguar F-Type returns virtually unchanged over its previous iteration save for the mild updates and redesigns it features inside and out.

The new model represents everything lovable from Jaguar – amazing agility, stunning performance, and seductive design. Performance updates it has received will go a long way in burnishing its appeal in terms of offering a dynamic capability, and an even greater driver reward. And just like the model it is replacing, the new model is drop-dead gorgeous, with its taut proportions, aggressive edginess, and graceful shapes.

Simply Ignore The Cons

In achieving this impeccable résumé, certain things had to be compromised. Such sacrifices include comfort and convenience features. Those sacrifices are however easily ignored for performance-oriented drivers.

What About The 2017 SVR?

For 2017, Jaguar also offers the F-Type SVR. The new 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR is an all-weather supercar that achieves a top speed of 200 mph. it retains its day-to-day usability and inherent tractability but extensively exploits the lightweight aluminum sports car full potential. It benefits from an enhanced chassis, active and driveline aerodynamics resulting in a lighter, more powerful performance. Those opting for either the Jaguar SVR coupe or convertible should expect unrivaled driver reward and engagement in all conditions.

Some Of The Alternatives Are…

Yet, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type isn’t the only vehicle in its class that offers a scintillating performance. Direct rivals include the Audi R8, Porsche 911, Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, and the Acura NSX. You can also check out conventional alternatives such as Nissan GT-R, Porsche Cayman/Boxster, and the Chevrolet Corvette.

Is There A Release Date? Price?

The USA release date has been set for the spring of 2017. As for the MSRP pricing, details are as below: F-Type Base Coupe – $62,700, F-Type Premium Coupe – $68,100, F-Type S Coupe – $79,100, F-Type R Coupe – $105,000, F-Type SVR Coupe – $125,950, and the F-Type S British Design Edition Coupe – $92,100. All pricing includes the destination charge.

2017 Jaguar F-Type Exterior Changes Are Very Slim

As evidenced by the pictures, the new model carries over unchanged from the previous model year. With two years since it debuted in the automotive scene, the new model continues to provide the same gorgeous shape as before, and ranks among one of the sexiest car available. A lack of a substantial makeover doesn’t however rule out the possibility of minor differences between itself and its previous iteration. The added front differential gives it a slightly higher hood line. Also, there’re new vents on the aluminum hood.

Most of the changes were perhaps reserved for the F-Type SVR model that gained quite a bit of some aerodynamic works. It gained a full suite of features designed to seamlessly provide top-notch efficiency, performance, stability, and dynamics. One notable feature that engineers took more time to design was the deployable rear wing. It is more aerodynamically-efficient, and more effective in both lowered and raised positions.

2017 Jaguar F-Type Interior Beautiful But Small

The new model continues to offer excellent interior craftsmanship. The seats are comfortable and provide superb lateral support. But a lot has been done to provide excellent performance, all while sacrificing comfort, and space.

For instance, the legroom might feel limited especially for taller passengers. Exterior visibility has been compromised due to the rather thick roof pillars. And some drivers may find the ride quality to be overly firm.
