- jaguar is simplifying its f-type lineup to include only v-8 engines. the turbocharged four-cylinder and supercharged v-6 are no longer available.
- the new base model is powered by a 444-hp supercharged v-8 while the f-type r still uses the 575-hp version.
- the 2022 f-types are available to order now and will arrive next month starting at $71,050.
jaguar is dropping the f-type's four- and six-cylinder engines in favor of a v-8-only lineup after giving its sports car a new look and simplified engine lineup for the previous model year. it'll now consist of two models: a new p450 model and the r model, and they will be on sale next month. unfortunately, the move makes the entry point for jaguar's sports car $8300 more expensive.
the f-type p450 is available as a coupe or convertible with either rear- or all-wheel drive. its supercharged 5.0-liter v-8 produces 444 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. jaguar claims that both rear- and all-wheel-drive models will reach 60 mph in 4.4 seconds with a 177-mph top speed. the f-type r still uses the 575-hp supercharged 5.0-liter v-8 with all-wheel drive, and in our test it reached 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on the way to a 11.7-second quarter mile at 121 mph.
base models are equipped with 20-inch wheels, larger rear brakes, and an active exhaust system. all-wheel-drive models, which are named r-dynamic, have gloss black trim and unique wheels. they're available in 11 exterior colors, and there are even more available from jaguar's special vehicle operations (svo).
the 2022 jaguar f-type is available to order now starting at $71,050 for the p450 coupe with rear-wheel-drive and $81,050 for the all-wheel-drive r-dynamic coupe. the f-type r's starting price will stay the same at $104,350.
