The 2021 Jaguar F-Type is here with sharper styling, and more power
Back in 2014 Jaguar took the covers off their newest car, the Jaguar F-Type Convertible. The car was instantly praised for its gorgeous looks, and earth-shattering exhaust note. However, nearly 6 years later the F-Type is getting on a bit.
Jaguar's new F-Type features notably sharper styling, with narrower headlights, a slightly larger grille, and pinched front fenders. Other smaller design changes can be seen, such as more notable air inlets at the front, and revised side skirts, with more pronounced scoops.
The interior remains largely unchanged, with an improved infotainment system, and a larger 12.3-inch instrument cluster.
The new car features Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8, with which the F-Type R produces 575 fire-spitting horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, that's 25 HP more and 14 more lb-ft of torque than the outgoing model. Furthermore, the sprint from 0-60 mph takes just 3.5 seconds. The F-Type R maxes out at an electronically limited 186 mph. The new F-Type also features a revised power steering system and new springs and anti-roll bars.
The F-Type still retains its signature 3.0-liter V6, which produces 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. The base F-Type, is also still offered with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine producing just 296 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. Just like previous versions all F-Type models will utilize a ZF eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission.
Pricing and availability has not yet been announced by the automaker, but the car should go on sale at some point next year. It will likely cost about as much as the current model, which starts at roughly $63,000.
