2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Dynamic Mode Short-Term Memory
September 19, 2014
Pretty much anytime I'm driving our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, it's in Dynamic Mode. I like the responsiveness and immediacy. After all, it is a sports car. While running some errands, I discovered that Dynamic mode remains on after you shut it off, but not always.
As it turns out, the Dynamic mode will remain selected for six hours after you shut it down. It makes sense to me, since during a daily run around the city, I like it to remember where we left off. If I park it for the night, it'll revert to normal mode, which means I won't startle my neighbors out of their slumber when I start up in the morning. Well, maybe not startle them as much. It's still quite growly at startup, regardless of mode.
