Looking for a used Jaguar S-Type in Chicago? Jaguar Chicago can help. We've been in business for over 50 years, selling luxury cars including new and preowned Jaguar models here in Chicago. And, although Jaguar no longer make the S-Type model (manufactured from 1999-2008), we often have a few well cared-for used models in inventory.

The first S-Types were noted by the U-shaped center console (and the optional touch-screen navigation system came out in 2003). The 2003 model featured a revised dash, center console, and the grille included a Jaguar badge to give the vehicle a more traditional Jaguar feel. The 2003 model also came custom with a flip-open key for the ignition. Updates to the 2003 model included an electronic parking-brake paddle-switch that replaced the conventional manually operated lever for the rear brakes. In addition, the Jaguar S-type was given a six-speed, automatic transmission as well as a revised 3.0-liter V6 engine with 235 hp (175 kW) (US spec) versus 210 hp (160 kW) for the 1999 to 2002 models.

The S-Type R model had a 4.2 liter V8 engine with an Eaton M112 supercharger, producing 400 hp and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.3 seconds. It included 18-inch (457-millimeter) alloy wheels, wire-mesh grille, and monochromatic paint. The R also has a rear apron, side-skirts, and front apron with built-in fog-lamps, a rear spoiler, a brace located near the rear subframe, and R badging on the boot lid and both front fenders (wings).

For the 2005 models and later, minor adjustments were made to the overall look including redesigned front and rear aprons, a slightly modified grille, remodeled rear light clusters, an aluminium bonnet, and a new 2.7-litre V6 diesel engine with 207 hp (154 kW). The windscreen washer jets were incorporated into the windscreen wiper arms. There were no changes made to the cabin interior.

Later years the Jaguar logo appeared within the radiator grille and the leaping hood ornament became optional. In 2006 the only major change was the removal of the fog lights. Jaguar discontinued this luxury vehicle in 2008.
