Jaguar has announced U.S. pricing for the 2017 Jaguar F-Type Coupe and 2017 Jaguar F-Type Convertible. Base price of both coupe and convertible versions has been reduced for 2017 model year. The 2016 F-Type Coupe and 2016 F-Type Convertible are priced at US$61,400 and US$65,400 (excluding destination charges) respectively. The entry price point has been lowered by US$3,600 for the coupe version and by US$2,700 for the convertible version. The 2017 models will start reaching showrooms in late Spring of 2016.
This price adjustment is part of the pricing realignment strategy announced for the 2016 model year. This strategy aims at an improved competitive value position by combining new entry-priced models, increased standard equipment and lower MSRPs.
Despite the drop in prices, the base F-Type still gets standard features such as Meridian 770 Watt surround sound audio system, navigation, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, sport seats finished in leather and suede cloth and Jaguar InControl Apps.
Power is sourced from a supercharged 340 hp 3.0-liter V6 engine which mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that supplies drive to the rear wheels. 340 hp is a decent power output but pale in comparison to the top-end F-Type R which produces 550 hp from its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 paired which is linked to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
All 2017 Jaguar models come with standard EliteCare coverage with complimentary scheduled maintenance, roadside assistance and Jaguar InControl Protect & Remote for 5-years or 60,000 miles.
