The Jaguar F-Type is getting a cheaper entry-level model in the U.S. for the 2017 model year.

Lowering the introductory price for the luxury sports car, the Jaguar F-Type coupe will start from $62,395 including destination, while the convertible will be priced at $66,395 when they arrive U.S. showrooms starting spring 2016. That’s about $3,600 less than the previous base model.

The new entry-level model is powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine with 340 horsepower, hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission.

According to the British automaker, “the addition of a new entry price level for 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE builds upon the pricing realignment strategy announced as part of The Next Generation of Jaguar for the 2016 model year in which an improved competitive value position was brought to market through a combination of new entry priced models, increased standard equipment and lower MSRPs that all help the brand target the heart of the luxury market.”

The 2017 Jaguar F-Type lineup will continue to consist of the F-Type, F-Type S and the range-topping F-Type R. Pricing on the 2017 F-Type S and F-Type R models has not yet been announced.
