Jaguar F-TYPE vs. Chevrolet Corvette: See how these two convertibles stack up against each other with a competitive analysis from Jaguar Huntington

If you're like many drivers here in Long Island, then there's nothing you love more than a bit of spirited driving in the open air. And if you're looking to truly take in the unadulterated sights and sounds of the road around Huntington, NY, the best way to do is from behind the wheel of a sporty convertible. A stylish convertible is a perfect for Long Island drivers of truly discerning tastes, and in our humble opinion, there's no better convertible out there than the new Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible here at our Huntington, NY dealership.

That being said, every savvy luxury car shopper knows that it pays to compare and contrast your options. After all, the Jaguar F-TYPE is far from the only convertible out there. However, we here at Jaguar Huntington are confident that it's easily the most dynamic and compelling option for Long Island drivers. So, to help you explore your options, we've put together a quick comparison showing you how the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible compares to one of its closest segment rivals, the Chevy Corvette.


Now, let's get down to brass tacks. The first thing any you'll want to know about any convertible is just how powerful it is. And while Jaguar and Chevy are strong contenders in that regard, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible is the clear winner in this category. With its available 5.0-liter V8 engine with twin vortex supercharger, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible is good for a staggering 550 horsepower as well as boasting a top speed of 200 mph. And while we don't recommend testing that limit on the roads around Huntington, NY, we can certainly say that the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible beats out its Corvette Convertible counterpart, as the latter only offers up to 460 horsepower with its 6.2-liter V8 engine.

It's also worth it to note that while the Chevy Corvette Convertible only offers rear-wheel drive, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible features available Intuitive All-Wheel Drive, providing greater control when cornering at speed and more confidence-inspiring traction in wet or slippery road conditions that we so often see here in Long Island.

Luxury Features

Performance thrills aside, there's plenty to recommend the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible over the Chevy Corvette Convertible with its extensive list of luxury features alone. Now, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible boasts many of the creature comforts you'd expect of a luxury car of its status, from its high-quality leather upholstery to its premium 10-speaker Meridian sound system. However, what you might not expect is that while the Jaguar F-TYPE is undoubtedly more stylish and full-featured than the Chevy Corvette Convertible, it's also more practical to boot. 

With its Jaguar InControl Touch Pro touchscreen infotainment system featuring standard Navigation Pro onboard navigation, it's only too easy to find that new restaurant right here in Huntington, NY or take a scenic drive down Long Island's North Shore in your free time. While the Chevy Corvette convertible offers a comparable touchscreen infotainment system, you'll have to pay extra if you want navigation included.

However, perhaps the best thing about the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible is the peace of mind it offers. With Jaguar Elite Care coverage for up to 5 years or 60,000 miles including 24-hour roadside assistance, complimentary scheduled maintenance, and Jaguar InControl® Remote and Protect™, the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible easily beats out the value of the Chevy Corvette Convertible, which only offers up to 3 years or 36,000 miles of warranty coverage.
