The Jaguar F-Type is already one of the best-looking, most capable drop-top sportscars around. It’s stupendously fast, especially in V-8 S guise, and the gorgeous shape designed by Ian Callum looks like it was carved from solid granite instead of pounded from aluminum. Now, Jaguar is throwing a raft of new tricks at the F-Type, including a new all-wheel-drive system, manual transmission, and a new F-Type R convertible with the same supercharged, 550-horsepower V-8 from the F-Type R Coupe. In short, Jaguar wants to make the F-Type more usable for more people.

The new AWD system is available as an option on V-6 powered F-Type S Convertible (but not with a manual transmission), and is standard on the F-Type R convertible, which now replaces the V-8 S Convertible in the current lineup.

Yes, the Jaguar F-Type is getting a six-speed manual transmission, but it only works with limited drivetrains. Namely, the V-6-powered rear-wheel-drive variants, but Jaguar deserves a round of applause for its part in helping prevent manual transmission extinction. The company says it added the manual in response to widespread demand, most of which came from the United States.

Along with the addition of a F-Type R Convertible, the new features mean the F-Type’s range more than doubles in size from a mere six to a Porsche 911-rivaling 14 derivatives. Porsche has had incredible success with is vast range of 911s, which currently sits at 20, so Jaguar is almost certainly looking to replicate that success.

Updated 03/23/2015: Jaguar announced prices for the recently launched F-Type AWD Convertible. The model will go on sale in April at a starring price of $87,900.

The only other tip-off to the new drivetrain is a new “AWD” badge connected to the “S” and “R” badges under the right-side taillight.

Seemingly the only thing that hasn’t changed about the F-Type Convertible is the way it looks. That’s a very good thing, because the F-Type is one of the prettiest cars around. Its brilliantly cohesive design is a more-than-worthy spiritual successor to the Jaguar E-Type.

Both AWD variants get new hoods with a larger power bulge — possibly to make room for additional parts underneath required to drive the front wheels. The only other tip-off to the new drivetrain is a new “AWD” badge connected to the “S” and “R” badges under the right-side taillight. The two are still differentiated by their unique hood vents, wheels, and exhaust — a dual-pipe center exit for the S and a quad-exit for the R.

Like the outside, not much has changed inside.

Like the outside, not much has changed inside. The 2016 F-Type gets a few new interior updates, but none are exclusive to the AWD convertibles. The instrument cluster gets updated gauges and the infotainment system has been upgraded with new software that allows owners to monitor fuel levels and door-lock status via their smartphones, and start the engine remotely.

New standard equipment across the range also includes a 770-watt Meridian sound system, SiriusXM radio and Jaguar Smart Key keyless entry. Other than that, it’s the same high-quality, two-seat, driver-focused cabin with which we’ve become familiar.

Drivetrain

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible Exterior
- image 579241
As you would expect, Jaguar says its new AWD system not only improves performance, but also improves the F-Type’s drivability over a wider range of surfaces and conditions.

The supercharged, all-alloy, quad-cam V-8 that’s now new to F-Type R convertible is an absolute beast, and when combined with the new AWD, should allow it get off the line like a scalded cat. Jaguar backs this up with a 0-to-60 time of 3.9 seconds (0.1 seconds quicker than the RWD F-Type R) and an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph. With 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, we have no trouble believing those figures. The supercharged V-6 gets the same 380 horsepower as before and sprints to 60 in 4.9 seconds, 0.1 seconds slower than the RWD version.

As you would expect, Jaguar says its new AWD system not only improves performance, but also improves the F-Type’s drivability over a wider range of surfaces and conditions. Its Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) system is able to manage the amount of torque sent to the front and rear axles by linking to the powertrain, rear differential, center coupling and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system to mitigate oversteer in sketchy conditions.

Under normal driving conditions, it’s capable of sending 100 percent of the torque to the rear wheels and up to 50 percent to the front when things turn pear-shaped. Jaguar also promises a distinctly RWD feel for when the tarmac dries off or thaws out.

As previously mentioned, there’s no manual option for AWD models, but the Jaguar’s eight-speed Quickshift transmission is incredibly competent. It’s just a shame a RWD F-Type R with a manual transmission isn’t an option.

Jaguar performance brakes with steel rotors come standard, with carbon ceramic brakes available as an option.

Also new to the F-Type is an Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), which replaces the traditional belt-driven steering pump of the previous iteration. These systems can have a numbing effect on steering, but Jaguar promises improved precision, feel, and a reduction in CO2 emissions due to decreased engine drag.

The AWD F-Types use the same forged-aluminum, double-wishbone set up as its RWD counterparts, though it’s likely that some sprig-rate and damping tweaks have been made to compensate for the driven front wheels.

Competition

Porsche Carrera 4S Cabriolet

The 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet is the über sports car that can do just about anything. It’s certainly on the grand touring side of the 911 spectrum, but this is a car that’s as happy cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway with the top down as it is carving canyon roads or clawing its way up icy roads en route to the ski lodge.

It’s also the car the AWD F-Type Convertible has in its crosshairs. If Jaguar wants to expand the F-Type’s usability, then this car is the benchmark. If the Brit has one thing going for it, it’s an excellent power-to-cost ratio. You have climb all the way up to the $195,000 911 Turbo S Cabriolet with 560 horsepower before you surpass the F-Type R’s power figure.

Audi R8 V8 Spyder

With a mid-cycle refresh that came in 2012, the Audi R8 is as relevant as ever, and with that whole quattro thing, it’s another all-conditions drop-top that’s a direct competitor to the AWD F-Type. The base V-8 model starts at around $130,000 and $166,000 for the V-10, so it’s a good bit more expensive. Like the Porsche and Jag, it also comes in hard or soft-top configurations.

The V-8 puts down 430 horsepower and the V-10 churns 525 horsepower, so like the 911, the F-Type trumps it in terms of power-to-cost. It’s really all comes down to personal preference between a British grand touring hooligan and a precision German pseudo-supercar.

Conclusion

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible Exterior

The F-Type has always been a bruiser, but now it’s a friendlier bruiser — sort of like that 6-foot-4 bouncer that starts letting you in for free and never checks your ID after you introduce yourself and talk about football.

The addition of AWD drive expands the F-Type Convertible’s performance and drivability envelope. It’s sure to be an incredibly fun and capable thing to drive, but you can’t help feel like we’ve been robbed of a 550 horsepower Jaguar with a manual transmission and RWD. Hopefully that changes soon.

Press Release

The 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE will receive substantial upgrades, including the addition of Instinctive All Wheel Drive® (AWD) as standard on R models and an option on S models, an available six-speed manual transmission available on Rear-Wheel Drive V6-powered models, and Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS)1. The fundamentals remain true to core DNA of Jaguar vehicles: lightweight construction, refined power, perfect proportions and outstanding design.

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible High Resolution Exterior

"Our target with engineering the all-wheel drive F-TYPE was to maintain that engaging rear-drive character that’s so important to Jaguar sports car DNA, and offer even greater dynamic capability. With the manual transmission option for the V6-powered F-TYPE models, we’ve gone to intricate lengths to engineer a very precise, technical and responsive level of interaction between the driver, the clutch and the transmission shift mechanism. It’s one for the driving purists - and I count myself as one of them." - Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar

The enhancements broaden the F-TYPE range, from a supercharged V6 driving the rear wheels through a manual gearbox, to the 550hp F-TYPE R Coupe and Convertible with the supercharged V8, AWD and eight-speed Quickshift automatic transmission. Transmitting the V8’s 502lb-ft of torque to the road though all wheels helps the R models to accelerate from zero to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds on the way to a maximum track speed of 186mph2.

While the Jaguar eight-speed automatic transmission offers an excellent blend of shift speed, comfort and refinement, there will always be a select group of enthusiasts who want the satisfaction which comes from changing gear manually. To meet that demand a six-speed manual transmission is now exclusively available for the V6 and rear-wheel drive (RWD) configuration. The car features a short-throw gear lever with a travel of only 1.77-inches (45mm), closely-spaced ratios, and pedals well placed for heel-and-toe changes.

The F-TYPE becomes the first Jaguar sports car to use Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS). Years of development ensure that the technology is now mature enough to deliver the expected response and feel. This electric system provides power assistance only when needed, reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Those seeking the ultimate in top down performance will now find it in the new F-TYPE R Convertible, with standard AWD and 550hp, which replaces the RWD-only 495hp F-TYPE V8 S. A 5.0-liter V8 combines direct injection and a twin-vortex supercharger to provide immediate response to the driver. With the top down on an open road, this engine’s unmistakable soundtrack is exhilarating.

Developing 550hp and 502lb-ft of torque, the all-alloy quad-cam engine in the R Coupe and Convertible is matched exclusively to the QuickShift automatic transmission and All-Wheel Drive. The extra traction of AWD enables the R Convertible to accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 3.9 seconds - matching the R Coupe - up to an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph2.

Enhancements are not limited to the chassis and driveline technology. The instrument cluster features new dials and gauges. The infotainment system has been upgraded, and the F-TYPE now features InControl Remote™, InControl Protect™ and InControl Apps™3 connectivity and telematics functions. When away from the vehicle, InControl Remote makes it possible to check information such as the fuel level or the door lock status using a smartphone. The driver can also use a smartphone to start the engine, enabling the climate control system to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before the journey begins. InControl Protect sends a signal automatically to a call center based on a supplemental restraint system trigger; an emergency call can also be initiated manually by the vehicle occupants.

For 2016 model year the F-TYPE also features an increased level of standard equipment, providing the features customers expect from a premium sports car. Now standard is the top-spec 770W Meridian™ surround sound audio system, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio & HD Radio™, Jaguar Smart Key Keyless entry - making the most of the unique deployable door handles of the F-TYPE - and 14-way fully power-adjustable seats. Coupe models also receive the panoramic glass roof as standard, adding a tremendous amount of light to the cabin. R Coupe models receive a power tailgate as standard. On S models standard equipment now includes Configurable Dynamic Mode1, a flat-bottomed racing-style steering wheel and the driver-selectable Switchable Active Exhaust.

The new 2016 model year F-TYPE Coupe and Convertible range will consist of: F-TYPE (340hp, rear wheel drive with automatic or manual), F-TYPE S Coupe (380hp automatic with RWD or AWD, or manual with rear-wheel drive), and F-TYPE R (550hp automatic with AWD).

INSTINCTIVE ALL WHEEL DRIVE® with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics

The AWD system is offered as an option with the 380HP V6 F-TYPE S Coupe and Convertible and is standard on the 550hp R Coupe and Convertible, all equipped with the eight-speed QuickShift automatic transmission.

The underlying development philosophy for AWD was to maintain the inherent agility and precision of the rear-wheel drive character of the F-TYPE while delivering the traction and handling benefits that Instinctive All Wheel Drive offers. From behind the wheel, drivers will quickly notice the extra abilities that AWD adds to performance, handling and road holding1.

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible High Resolution Exterior Wallpaper quality
- image 578512

Operating on the torque-on-demand principle, the AWD system sends 100 percent of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels under normal driving conditions. This maintains the rear-wheel drive handling characteristics of the F-TYPE and also reduces parasitic losses in the drivetrain. If the system determines that the rear wheels are approaching the limit of available grip, the electronically-controlled center coupling transfers up to 50 percent of the engine’s torque to the front axle.

The system can vary front/rear torque split to mitigate oversteer and understeer when cornering by providing yaw damping. Upon entering a corner, if the car begins to oversteer, torque can be transferred to the front axle, generating a stabilizing moment. The process is virtually transparent to the driver. As a result, entry speeds can be higher, and the driver can apply more power sooner in preparation for corner exit.

The AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD), a control system designed and developed by Jaguar to maximize the benefits of AWD without any compromise to dynamics. IDD is networked to the powertrain, rear differential and center coupling and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system to provide optimum torque distribution.

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible Interior
- image 578513

Algorithms within the IDD controller continuously estimate road surface friction. The controller uses measurements from yaw rate, steering wheel angle, wheel speed, and lateral and longitudinal acceleration sensors. It also takes into account the Driving Dynamics mode selected by the driver. The IDD controller and the EAD controller use this data to determine what the vehicle is doing - known as a "state estimate" - and the design of the IDD system enables a common state estimate to be used in both controllers.

This detailed monitoring of the vehicle’s dynamics enables optimized torque distribution across the rear axle, and from front to rear, by applying both pre-emptive and feed-back control of the active driveline technologies. The result is improved agility and steering response, and the extra level of control this brings increases driver confidence.

Another benefit that AWD and IDD bring, compared to rear-wheel drive, is greater differentiation between Normal, Rain/ice/snow and Dynamic modes1. With Rain/ice/snow mode selected, the IDD control software is designed to deliver a more AWD-like character than Normal mode, while Dynamic mode provides the most rear-drive biased character. Since the system is continually updating its estimate of road surface friction, IDD will select the most suitable calibration.

"What we require of our AWD system in the F-TYPE is optimal traction, but preserving the Jaguar DNA and sports car character - that means rear-drive feel and steering without any corruption. The key to this is Intelligent Driveline Dynamics - IDD."

"IDD allows us to provide ’Instinctive All Wheel Drive’ - only delivering torque to the front wheels when it’s required to enhance traction. That means we get great steering precision and the efficiency of a rear-drive car, but with additional traction via the front wheels precisely delivered to match the driver’s demand, the road surface and the driving situation." -Russ Varney, Vehicle Program Director, Sports Cars, Jaguar

Visually, AWD models are differentiated by ’AWD’ badging on the rear and subtle but distinct changes to the exterior styling. The AWD aluminum clamshell hood is reshaped, giving the F-TYPE greater presence and optimizing packaging around the powertrain. On the hood are new vents: positioned further apart and further forward than those of rear-wheel drive F-TYPE models. AWD models also feature unique body-color side sills, as well as a body colored venturi on R models or valence around the exhaust tips on S models.

Meticulous attention to weight distribution means that the AWD F-TYPE retains excellent balance, with the weight moving forward by only 1.2 percentage points compared to the rear-drive models.

MANUAL TRANSMISSION

The six-speed manual transmission in the F-TYPE has been designed to for enthusiasts and purists. The combination of the free-revving supercharged V6 and a precise, perfectly-weighted shift delivers motoring nirvana.

The outstanding QuickShift automatic transmission is still a benchmark for shift speed and refinement, but for discerning enthusiasts, the purest driving experience comes from executing perfectly timed shifts using a manual gearbox.

To meet this demand, Jaguar has integrated a highly efficient six-speed ZF® transmission into the lightweight aluminum body structure of the F-TYPE. This manual transmission is matched exclusively to the rear-wheel drive 340hp and 380hp V6 powertrains.

"A manual transmission in a sports car is always the purist driver’s choice - and to meet their expectations the manual F-TYPE had to offer a completely engaging driving experience.

"The short throw of the gear lever, the mechanical quality of the shift, pedal spacing ideally suited to heel-and-toe changes, the tune of the V6 supercharged engine itself - all have been subject to detailed scrutiny to ensure driving a manual F-TYPE is as fun as it is fast." - Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar

The new manual transmission was developed for the F-TYPE with the experts at ZF. This compact unit features a lightweight aluminum alloy casing and an innovative semi-dry sump lubrication system to improve efficiency. Instead of relying on the usual splash lubrication method, the gearbox in the F-TYPE uses a compact mechanical pump driven from the layshaft to spray oil on to the meshing gear teeth, bearings and the synchronizer rings. Providing lubrication to exactly where it is needed with low viscosity oil significantly reduces drag losses. It also means that the gearbox contains just 1.2-liters of fluid, saving weight and improving packaging.

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible High Resolution Exterior
- image 578515

The custom-designed bellhousing contains a dual-mass flywheel for excellent NVH properties and a single-plate dry clutch has been engineered for reduced rotational inertia, therefore reducing shift loads.

Positive, precise and perfectly-weighted changes

Connecting the driver to the gearbox is a shift mechanism which combines the direct, short throw essential to a sports car application. Every tactile detail from the gearbox detent profiles, shift lever mounting bushings, and the shape of the center console armrest have been scrutinized to create an extraordinary manual transmission driving experience.

The rod linkage provides the most direct connection between the gear lever and the selector forks. Every mounting bushing has been carefully tuned to strike the perfect balance between shift feel and isolation from unwanted vibration. Optimization of the detent profiles gives smooth, precise changes without the high peak loads which result in notchiness when going into gear. A throw of just 45mm ensures fast, precise shifts.

Extensive development and testing results in a gear knob set at the ideal height and position for road and track driving. Such is the attention to detail that the center console armrest has been reprofiled for manual transmission models to allow for the optimum movement of wrist, elbow and shoulder during each gear change. To satisfy the most demanding enthusiasts, the brake and throttle pedals are ideally positioned for heel-and-toe shifts.

The perfect match: Supercharged V6

The manual transmission is paired exclusively with the all-aluminum 3.0-liter V6 engine. This supercharged direct-injection unit, in both 340hp and 380hp ratings, is defined by its linear power delivery and willingness to rev and the new gearbox engages the engine’s full performance potential.

Under hard acceleration the engine has been tuned to respond directly to throttle pedal inputs. Coupled with the reduced rotational inertias this enables the enthusiastic driver to execute fast, precise heel-and-toe downshifting. The engine ECU provides a speed matching function on upshifts, making each gear change smoother. An anti-stall hill holding function makes the F-TYPE easier to start off from a standstill.

ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING

2016 Jaguar F-Type AWD Convertible High Resolution Exterior
- image 578516

The EPAS system fitted to the latest F-TYPE is the result of R&D work which began in 2008. The years of development and tuning have ensured that this steering system delivers the immediate response and connected feel expected from a Jaguar sports car.

Jaguar sports cars have previously relied on hydraulic power assistance because it has historically delivered the most natural, intuitive performance feel. In recent years, Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) technology has matured, and now offers far greater tuning potential, excellent steering feel and better energy efficiency.

Advanced control algorithms ensure that the F-TYPE steering is free from any trace of the synthetic feel which can taint some EPAS systems. The software even compensates for differences in ambient temperature, ensuring absolute consistency in the feedback the driver gets through the wheel.

Hardware improvements were also implemented. Increasing the torsional stiffness of the steering column intermediate shaft helped to deliver the on-center feel needed to achieve our demanding targets.

Compared to hydraulic systems, which constantly use power from the engine, EPAS only uses electrical energy when assistance is needed, thereby reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. These improvements make the lightweight aluminum F-TYPE more efficient.

INFOTAINMENT AND CONNECTIVITY

The new Jaguar InControl® suite of connectivity, telematics and infotainment systems offer increased functionality, from smartphone apps and emergency services to remote engine starts

The F-TYPE offers a connected drive in every sense. Just as the chassis and the powertrains are engineered to respond immediately - and exactly as the driver expects - the infotainment systems have been developed to be as intuitive to use as possible. All models feature an 8-inch capacitive Touch-screen with a new user interface. The crisp, clear graphics make them quick and easy to use3.

For the 2016 model year the outstanding Meridian™ 770W surround sound audio system is standard on every F-TYPE model.

The F-TYPE ensures that drivers stay connected too, thanks to InControl Apps™. Connecting Apple and Android smartphones using the dedicated USB port gives seamless access to compatible third party apps stored on the device through the vehicle’s Touch-screen3.

Jaguar InControl Protect™ technologies have been created to improve safety, convenience and peace of mind. Should the car be involved in a collision severe enough to deploy the airbags, the integrated telematics module will automatically call emergency services and notify them of the vehicle’s location. This feature can also be triggered manually by pressing the SOS emergency call button.

In the unlikely event of a breakdown, F-TYPE owners can quickly and easily summon Jaguar Roadside Assistance simply by pressing a button on the overhead console. This will automatically connect them to the Jaguar Roadside Assistance operator, and will also send information on the vehicle’s location and status.

The InControl Remote™ app allows the driver to interact with their F-TYPE in a completely new way. Using their smartphone, drivers can see how much fuel is in the tank, if the windows are closed or if the alarm has gone off. Better still, it enables the driver to remotely lock or unlock the car and reset the alarm - from anywhere in the world. The beep and flash feature can help drivers to find the car again - perfect for busy parking lots or crowded city streets.

InControl Remote also makes it possible to start the engine remotely. (Not available on manual transmission cars.) This feature enables the climate control system to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before the journey begins.

All Jaguar InControl functions are standard on the 2016 model year F-TYPE.
