Although Jaguar recently announced a supercharged XF sedan with a 470 horsepower engine, drivers considering a used Jaguar S-Type in New Jersey could find a more affordable option with similar power.

The XF was introduced several years ago by Jaguar as an update to the S-type line of sedans, and the mid-year introduction of the XF with supercharged engines ranging from 470 to 510 horsepower could offer some drivers the ability to go 0-60 in less than 5 seconds.

The main sticking point could be price, as the most affordable model with a less powerful engine starts at $52,000 MSRP according to the manufacturer.

Buyers may be able to find more inexpensive used Jaguar S-Types that offer similar quality, according to Edmunds.com editors.

The 2003 model was “the best Jaguar sedan available,” they wrote, and had an upgraded suspension front and rear in addition to a bevy of safety features.

Motorists looking for more power could find the 2003 S-Type R to their liking, as its 400 horsepower engine helps propel the car from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.
