Jaguar's midlevel rear-wheel-drive sedan got a subtle but full redesign for 2005, resulting in what Jaguar called a "cleaner, leaner, more muscular look." Aluminum is used for the hood, and Jaguar says considerably tighter panel fits appear on this version than on prior models. Jaguar made the S-Type more rigid for diesel-engine applications in Europe, and American models benefit as well. For the first time on the S-Type, the interior could be trimmed with high-tech aluminum rather than traditional wood trim. Positioned between the company's compact X-Type and full-size XJ in size and price, the S-Type comes in three versions with distinct engines: a 3.0-liter V-6, a 4.2-liter V-8 or a supercharged V-8 for the S-Type R. For the 2006 model year, Jaguar's 4.2-liter V-8 earns a boost to 300 horsepower, while the supercharged R delivers 400 hp. Like other Jaguar models, the S-Type gets a chrome mesh grille. A new Conti-Teves foundation braking system promises improved stopping distance and pedal feel. Sirius Satellite Radio and Bluetooth wireless technology are available.
