Jaguar unveiled the F-Type sports coupe back in 2014, bringing the British brand back to its sports car roots. In 2021, this sleek sports car received a comprehensive update that included an all-new nose and a light taillight revision. With these updates still fresh, we expect the 2022 Jaguar F-Type to arrive unchanged.
The current F-Type is fresh off a refresh that brought in an all-new nose. This new front end gave the classy sports coupe a wider look with its thinner headlights, flatter hood, wider grille, and more. Around back, smoothed-out taillights are the highlights. Otherwise, this is the same F-Type we’ve seen since 2014, and we expect this look to remain the same in the 2022 F-Type.
Inside, the F-Type is simple but shows it’s a proper luxury car with its standard 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The rest of the cabin is about what we’d expect from a sports car that debuted in 2014, and we expect it to remain the same in 2021.
Under its hood, the current F-Type has a wide range of engine options, starting with the base 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that pumps out 296 horsepower. Up a notch is the supercharged V6 model that delivers 380 hp, while the full-throat R model gets 575 hp from its supercharged V8 engine. All 2021 F-Types come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. We expect these powertrains to remain the same in the 2022 F-Type.
The IIHS hasn’t tested the current F-Type, so there are no crash-test results. We do know the 2021 F-Type comes standard with automatic emergency braking and active lane control. We expect these features to remain the same in the 2022 F-Type.
