Customers in the United States will get the same three versions of the F-Type, with the first one being priced from 69,000 USD, the second one from 81,000 USD and the top spec from 92,000 USD.

The entry-level Jaguar F-Type will get a 340 HP 3.0 liter V6 engine under its hood, the F-Type S will get a 380 HP 3.0 liter V6 unit while the F-Type V8 S will be powered by a V8, producing a total output of 495 HP and 625 Nm of torque.
