In our 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. Chevy Corvette Stingray comparison, you’ll be able to make an educated decision and take your drives to a whole new level. Ready to see who comes out on top?
Jaguar F-TYPE vs Corvette Stingray: Performance
There’s no questioning that these two vehicles pack a lot of sporty power under the hood. Although, one model might leave you wanting more options.
The Chevy Corvette Stingray is equipped with one configuration. Its 6.2L V8 engine means business, generating up to an impressive 460 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque, leaving you with an exhilarating ride. This powertrain is melded to a 7-speed manual transmission, which allows you to control every shift.
On the other hand, the 2020 Jaguar F-TYPE gives sports car enthusiasts more selection. It has three engines to choose from, allowing you to customize your driving experience. Additionally, this vehicle puts off a bit more power. When equipped with the available 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine, you’ll have a whopping 550 HP and 502 lb-ft of torque at your fingertips.
Add on the 8-speed automatic transmission that offers guess-free shifting and one more gear to play with, and you have yourself one road-ready vehicle.
2020 F-TYPE vs 2019 Chevrolet Corvette: Fuel Economy
We know you’re going to be behind the wheel of one of these amazing vehicles often. So, why not have an excellent fuel economy to match?
When standardly equipped, the Jaguar F-TYPE gives you some extreme efficiency, allowing you to stay in the driver’s seat instead of at a gas station. With this model, you can expect an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG, presenting you with the perfect mix of power and efficiency.
Unfortunately, the Corvette Stingray doesn’t quite match that impressiveness. With an EPA-estimated 16 city/25 highway MPG, you may find yourself filling up more than you’d like.
F-TYPE vs Corvette Stingray: Interiors
Luxury is something that Jaguar is known for and it shows in the F-TYPE. When you slide inside its lavish cabin, you’ll be met with features that are hard to find anywhere else. Lightweight sports seats are available, keeping driving, comfort, and space in mind. These can also be heated, as well as cooled, for optimal comfort.
Technology is advanced in the F-TYPE featuring the Touch Pro™ 10-inch touchscreen, 10-speaker, 2-subwoofer Meridian™ Sound System, and even configurable lighting.
Though the inside of the Chevrolet Corvette is still remarkable, it doesn’t present the same type of luxury as the F-TYPE. For example, though the available Napa leather seats can be heated and ventilated, they’re not as stunning or cozy. In addition, the in-vehicle touchscreen maxes out at eight inches, there’s no configurable lighting, and the available audio system only gives you one subwoofer.
2020 Jaguar F-TYPE vs Chevy Corvette Stingray: The Verdict is Clear
Though the Corvette Stingray is quite the sports vehicle, it doesn’t live up to the performance, fuel economy, and interior features found in the 2020 F-TYPE.
