2005 Jaguar S-TYPE

The 2005 model year brings the only significant exterior styling changes in the S-Type's short history.  Alterations include new taillights, an all-aluminum hood, a face-lifted front fascia.  Inside, the S-Type sedan has a new bronze trim finish and redesigned instrumentation.  New packages include Aluminum Trim for both models, and a Vanden Plas upgrade for the V-8, which includes burled walnut, premium leather and special wheels.  The Sport Package is also continued.

Despite a variety of available upgrades and the availability of the R-Style sedan, the S-Type continues with only two distinct trim levels.  The sedan is available with a 3.0 liter V-6 or a 4.2 liter V-8.  The V-8 models also adds several additional features.  Options on both models include the aforementioned Sport and Aluminum upgrades, a navigation system, CD Changer, and the CATS suspension system.

The 3.0 liter V-6 will provide 235 horsepower and 216 pound-feet of torque, sending the 3800 pound sedan from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds.  A six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission is available with this engine. The 4.2 liter V-8 generates 293 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque and can only be teamed with the six-speed automatic transmission.  The 0 to 60 mph time is just 6.2 seconds with this engine, and fuel economy is estimated at 17/26 mpg.

The S-Type has been generally well-reviewed since a series on much-needed mechanical and electrical updates in 2003.  Some issues remain, like fuel economy, features reliability (cruise control, garage door opener), some Ford-like components, and service/parts/routine maintenance costs.  The S-Type has been consistently praised for the overall driving experience.  Handling, responsiveness, and engine power are all top features among owners.
