The 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE is a sophisticated, powerful, modern big cat with a shell made of lightweight aluminum and advanced technology built in. Its V6 and V8 supercharged engines are designed to not only make it roar louder but also run faster. If you love powerful two-door cars, you will love this cat.
The 2017 F-type is available in Coupe and Convertible body styles and comes in a choice of four engines – 3-litre 340 hp V6, 3-litre 380 hp V6, 5-litre 550 hp V8 and 5-litre 575 hp V8. It is said that power is nothing without control. Well, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type has a lot of control built in.
2017 Jaguar F-Type Controls
The 2017 F-Type has a choice of either manual (for sports enthusiasts) or automatic transmissions. Whatever you choose, the car offers advanced braking systems and driver assistance, including assisted parking and reverse park camera.
For your safety and the safety of your passengers, there are two front airbags and two side airbags built in. It also has 6 sensors that detect the size and weight of the driver and passenger. The sensors trigger the front airbags to deploy appropriately. In addition, seat belt pretensioners automatically tighten the seat belts when they sense rapid deceleration.
The 2017 F-Type has Jaguar’s InControl Remote system which enables you to monitor and control your F-TYPE from your smartphone. You can remotely start the engine, cool the cabin, lock/unlock your car, and track its movement. It would be nice to be able to remotely disable the car completely (in case of theft), but we will have to ask Jaguar about that.
2017 Jaguar F-Type Dashboard Touchscreen
When in the driver’s seat though, the advanced dashboard puts more control in your hands. There is an 8-inch touchscreen that offers climate control, GPS navigation, audio choices or Bluetooth telephone connectivity, audio playback, as well as video. Do keep your eyes on the road though. Watching an edition of Fast And Furious while driving this cat may endanger your life.
But there is no question that music played over the standard 770 watt Meridian Surround Sound System coupled with 12 speakers, including deep-bass sub-woofers, built into the car, will give you a most pleasurable riding experience.
