2006 Jaguar S-TYPE Overview

The S-Type sedans are Jaguar's mid-priced ofering, falling in between the entry level X-Type and the flagship XJ sedans. Both the X-Type and S-Type Jaguar sedans are differentiated from the flagship XJ by their foundations. The two lower level sedans are Ford-based, while the XJ remains pure Jaguar. The S-Type is built atop Ford's former Lincoln LS platform, and shares many structural and mechanical similarities.

For 2006, the V-8 engine has been tweaked for slightly more power and a more advanced braking system has also been added. Bluetooth and satellite radio are added to the options roster.

The S-Type sedan has a unique and distinguished grille design, reminiscent of the Jaguar's classic designs. The S borrows many styling elements from the Jaguar Mark II sedan built in the 1960s.

The two model S-Type lineup begins with 3.0 liter V-6 version, which generates 235 horsepower. It comes equipped with leather, walnut trim, a moon roof, dual zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, and full power accessories.

A 4.2 liter V8-powered version is also available. This V-8, found in all the higher priced models, now produces 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This model receives sound system upgrade, xenon headlights, a navigation system, and an electric rear sun shade.

A six speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels on both models.

    Any Oil Other Than The Expensive Zf Trans Oil?

    Can't afford ZF but don't want to ruin transmission. Heard Mercon S/P or LV might work or some type of Castrol or Pentasosin.
