The F-Type brings generations of an iconic design to the forefront of athleticism, performance, design, and technology. Available in coupe and convertible forms, you will make a statement in virtually the most elegantly powerful vehicle on the road.
State-of-the art driving systems, including a beautifully proportioned chassis, tight suspension and responsive steering all contribute to the F-Type’s breathtaking agility. You become closely connected with the road on every adventure.
There have been a few changes between the current F-Type and the previous model. Here, we discuss these differences so you can purchase the right model year for your needs.
The current F–Type has a new engine focus
This year’s models offer two engines based on a 5.0L V8. From the previous F-Type, the lower-powered turbo 4-cylinder and supercharged V6 are discontinued.
Available in both the current F-Type’s coupe and convertible, a 5.0L V8 with a supercharger generates up to 450 burst horsepower and provides the genesis of the F-Type’s driving experience. This engine pairs with an eight-speed quick shift automatic transmission that facilitates outstanding acceleration. You can choose between rear-wheel drive and AWD configurations.
If you want the ultimate F-Type experience, you can choose a more powerful supercharged 5.0L V8 that rockets to 575 horsepower with a whopping 516 lb-ft of torque. This engine is also found in Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Ratings (SVR) models, which are at the top of Jaguar’s performance lineup. This powertrain pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD configuration.
Also common in high-end Jaguar models, the current F-Type trims feature a Switchable Active Sports Exhaust system that lets everyone know of your presence at any engine speed.
F-Type model changes between the current and previous years
Jaguar currently offers the F-Type, F-Type R, and the F-Type R-Dynamic. The F-Type trim replaces the P300 and First Edition options from the previous model year, and it is more powerful.
The F-Type, F-Type R, and the F-Type R-Dynamic trims are all available in either coupe or convertible models. The R-Dynamic includes the 575-horsepower powertrain.
