2004 Jaguar S-TYPE Overview

The Jaguar S-Type lineup returns unchanged for 2004, but there are a few pieces of news regarding options. Jaguar's adaptive cruise control system debuts this year, and the six-speed automatic transmission becomes standard on the 3.0L sedan. Buyers can still opt for the six-speed manual. Later this year, the car would undergo a light face lift, but this restyled version would not be offered until 2005.

Two trim levels are available once again. The S-Type R sedan also returns, but R Style Jags are distinct models. Both regular S-Types, the 3.0L sedan and the 4.2L sedan, are available with the Sport Package performance upgrade with Jaguar's CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension) system. Both models come standard with a long list of luxury features, including a CD audio system, steering wheel audio controls, leather upholstery, a trip computer, dual-zone climate control, heated mirrors, keyless entry and a wood-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob. Safety features include stability control, automatic headlights, panic-assist braking and side curtain airbags.

The 3.0 liter V-6 generates 235 horsepower and 216 pound-feet of torque, and can be mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. V-6 drivers can expect 18/26 mpg fuel economy, and a 0-60 mph time of 7.3 seconds. The upper tier S-Type houses a 4.2 liter V-8, supplying 293 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed automatic is the only available transmission. The potent V-8 sends this S-Type sedan from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds, and fuel economy is estimated at 17/26 mpg.

Once again, the S-Type has been met with warm reviews from both owners and test drivers. The cost and frequency of maintenance are still common issues, but most are reporting small problems. Other annoyances include excessive tire wear and the lower quality stock radio. Most owners admit to buying the S-Type for it good looks, but other favorite features are handling, seat comfort, and overall interior finish.

I am contemplating purchasing one of these used. I do not want to be in the shop all the time. Miles on the car are 89k. It is a gorgeous car but I also need to be practicle. Pass or go for it?

Can You Ls Swap A Jaguar S Type From A 3 0 V6 To A 5.3 V8?

Is it possible to ls swap my jag from a 3.0 to a v8? Not using the same type of motors you'd usually find in them like the 4.8 or 3.0. I want the motor to at least be a 5.3 or 5.7.
