2007 Jaguar S-Type Overview
The S-Type Jaguars are the British marque's midlevel sedans, positioned between the entry-level X-Type and classic XJ series with respect to price. While this line begins just below $50,000, the top shelf S-Type will cost $15,000 more. There are a few minor changes for this eighth and final year of production, including new seat piping and revised burl walnut veneers. An adaptive radar-based cruise control system has also been added to the options list.
The S-Type is built atop Ford's former Lincoln LS platform, and shares many structural and mechanical components. Despite some overlap with Ford, the S-Type is unmistakably a Jaguar, in terms of both price and presentation. The Jag is set apart, even from its high priced competitors, by its interior and exterior design. The S inherits many styling cues from the Jaguar sedans of the 1960s, namely the Mark II. The grille, headlight design, and hood shape. A new design, called the XF, will replace the S-Type in 2008. So this might be the last chance to enjoy many of these details.
There are three variations of the S-Type available for 2007. Drivers who are used to more pedestrian sedan might have a difficult time distinguishing one from the next, unless they peaked at the price. The S lineup begins with 3.0 liter V-6 version, which offers 235 horsepower. It comes equipped with leather, walnut trim, a moon roof, dual zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, and full power accessories.
The next step is 4.2 liter V-8 S-Type, which supplies the 3900 pound car with 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This model includes all of the previously mentioned features, along with a sound system upgrade, xenon headlights, a navigation system, and an electric rear sun shade.
The top shelf R-Style is almost an entirely different car. The 4.2 L V-8 is enhanced by top-mounted supercharger, which boosts horsepower from 300 to 400. Jaguar claims a 5.3 second 0-60 time for this version. Oversize disc brakes, wider tires, 18 inch wheels, and Jaguar's Enhanced Computer Active Technology Suspension system have also been added.
All S-Type models are rear wheel drive. A six speed automatic is the only transmission option.
