Jaguar is giving their F-Type line a refreshing look and adding two new variants for 2018. The all-new 2018 F-Type features new LED headlights and slightly darker taillights.

Every model except the SVR also gets some updates on the front bumpers. The most noticeable change is on the side vents, which morph from the double slots to single openings. The F-Type R's large side vents are also bisected horizontally.

The two new . But the R Dynamic isn't that exciting since its pretty much package for the entry level 340- and 380- hp. All the models are available in 19- and 20-inch wheel options, as well as gloss black-painted hood vents, side sills, rear diffuser, and splitter.

The R-Dynamic model is equipped with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces either 340 or 380 hp. The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed Quickshift automatic transmission. In addition, the R Dynamic is also available in both coupe and convertible.

On the other hand, the 400 Sport model is powered by a V6 engine that produces up to 400 hp. But the only available transmission is the Quickshift automatic. It also comes with larger brakes, unique 20-inch dark gray wheels, and black-painted calipers. There are also performance seats included, black brushed-aluminum trim and yellow contrasting stitching.

The two other major updates for the F-Type line involve the infotainment system. Every model now comes standard with Jaguar's Touch Pro infotainment system and its 8-inch touchscreen which the driver can interact. There is also a new cool app that the automaker developed with GoPro. It's called ReRun, which allows the drivers to connect a GoPro camera to the vehicle, and download footage to the phone.

The new 2018 Jaguar F-Type range goes on sale in the first quarter of 2017. According to a Jaguar representative, further information such as the price will be revealed at the New York Auto Show.
