All-New 2016 Jaguar F-Type – Baker Motor Company – Charleston, SC

February 24, 2015


Jaguar has received astounding feedback regarding the newly released 2016 Jaguar F-Type and models are speeding out of dealer showrooms!

The Jaguar F-Type is available in both a coupe and convertible – receiving equal praise for their design and performance!  However, the brand is not finished yet and there are rumors of new models coming our way soon!

It is no secret that Jaguar strives to design the most powerful luxury sports cars in the market and with a V8 engine, pumping out 500 horsepower, we could not be more impressed.  The F-Type is a great example of what Jaguar can do and we speculate that the sister models will not only match but could possibly exceed our expectations. 

2016 F-Type
2016 F-Type S
2016 F-Type S AWD
2016 F-Type R
