2018 Jaguar F-Type vs. Its Competition

2018 Jaguar F-Type
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

With its new base 4-cylinder engine, the Jaguar F-Type lineup now runs the gamut.

Lower power (and pricetag) variants like the turbo-4 and the 340-hp V-6 square off nicely against the Porsche 718 Cayman and, to a lesser degree, the Cadillac ATS.

The Porsche is the most precise of the trio, but the Jaguar is the eye-catcher.

The Chevrolet Corvette, when optioned just right, fulfills the same grand touring intentions as the F-Type.

So too the audacious new Lexus LC, which is priced against the F-Type R.
