Jaguar has always been a castaway in the sports car segment. They have been producing equally powerful cars, yet they don’t seem to get the attention they deserve. Even to this day, Jaguar doesn't have the brand power of the likes of Porsche, Aston Martin, etc. Jaguar has constantly offered mean and sharp-looking cars with a plethora of engine options for every type of person.

Pros

Attractive looks

Detailed interior design

Thrilling exhaust notes

Nice big sunroof

Cons

Very expensive base model

Options make it more expensive 

What's New?

The headlight assembly is a little bit slimmer for the 2022 model, but the difference is very minute

F-Type may be replaced by J-Type with mid-engine configuration, and there are also rumors about it being powered by electric motors.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


If we consider the pricing of competition, the Jaguar F-type is way too expensive for a Turbo Inline-4, but the experience it offers is on another level. It would have been a wiser decision to skip the older generation F-Types as they were bulky, but since 2020, the design of this car has taken a u-turn and has become one of the best-looking coupes out there. The appropriate rivals for the F-Type would be the BMW M4 Coupe, Porsche 718 Cayman, and Lexus RC 350 F Sport.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Features

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type is expected to be offered in 4 trim levels, which range from $61,600 to $103,200. However, all the trims are configurable with options that are plentiful. The R trim puts it in some serious competition with the more sports-car-only manufacturers. The coupe comes with many standard features like a climate pack, ventilated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, and more.

If you are not looking to take your F-Type on track days and often find yourself cruising around urban neighborhoods, the base P300 model will do you just fine. The Inline-4 cylinder is capable enough and is easier to maintain. However, the exhaust note on the F-Type R is not easy to overlook. So if that’s what you're looking for, the other trims have no appeal.

Price:

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type is available in many engine options like 2.0L Turbo Inline-4 on the base trim (P300), Supercharged V-6, and a Supercharged V-8 on the R models. The official pricing details aren’t available, but it is expected to stay more or less similar to the previous year’s model. The base model P300 starts at $ 61,000, and it can go up to $103,000 for the R AWD model.

Release Date:

There again is no official news but 2022 F-Type is expected to go on sale in spring 2021.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Engine and Performance

The engine lineup on the F-Type is the same as last year. Why would they change it anyway, since there is an option for everyone in Jaguar’s catalog? The P300 trim has a 2.0L Intercooled turbocharged Inline-4 engine which produces 296 hp & 295 lb-ft of torque. This much power is enough for someone who drives in the urban areas most of the time. The transmission on offer is an 8-speed automatic standard on all trims.

The base engine, even though just a 2.0L, is like a fire-breathing dragon. The spits & crackle sound it makes when you accelerate or let go of the throttle is pretty amazing. The driving dynamics have hit the sweet spot. As the Inline-4 engine is lighter by 440 lbs over the V6, making the overall car lighter and consequently feels very nimble. The steering wheel has just enough weight to it, and it induces confidence to take on tight corners. Jaguar has uniquely tuned the suspension. The rear end is a bit stiffer and the front end has a softer setup. This will make the RWD variant of the car stick to the road better. 

Now, this is a sports car, so don’t expect a plush ride quality on the bumpy roads. While the suspension tweaks will minimize the impacts felt by the driver, you will certainly feel that the road is bad. The F-Type has a dynamic spoiler that automatically wakes itself up to increase the down-force. That spoiler can be manually set to the desired position if you want to show off a little. All this performance was on a base engine. Just imagine the brutal force it will have in the Supercharged V-6 & V-8 variants.

The base variant reaches from 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds. The supercharged V-6, P380 trim has a 4.9 seconds timing for the 0-60 MPH. Lastly, the F-Type R with its supercharged V-8 reaches from 0-60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds. These are the 2021 model performance figures, but since there are no mechanical changes, we should do just fine in the upcoming year. The BMW with its Inline-6 engine takes 4.1 seconds to reach the 0-60 MPH speed. Porsche takes a bit more time with 4.9 seconds for the 0-60 MPH. The Lexus RC 350 F-Sport isn't far behind with 4.7 seconds on the clock.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Fuel Economy

If fuel economy sits high on the priority list you must opt for the base I-4 engine. The V-6 & V-8 engine will literally chug on the gasoline. The F-Type has the best fuel economy in its segment in both the city and the highway. The coupe offers 23 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. Jaguar has fitted a 16.6 gallons fuel tank which leads to a combined range of 432 miles.

BMW M4 has not performed so well, and this is solely because of that I-6 engine under the hood. That's not the case on the Lexus though, even though having a thirsty V-6 under the hood, it has better numbers than the competition, except for the Jaguar. Similar is the case when the range is considered, with Jaguar taking the top spot with Lexus close behind with a margin of 32 miles in combined scenarios.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Interior

This is where the F-Type earns its hefty price tag. The interior of the Jaguar screams attention to the tiniest of the details. There isn’t any genuine leather used, but even the faux leather used is of nice quality and feels soft. Most of the car from the inside is covered in soft-touch leather. Jaguar has done very subtle branding inside the car in various places like there is Jaguar written on the A/C vents. On the dashboard, it says Jaguar and its year of inception.

The steering wheel doesn’t have any design tricks like on many performance cars we are used to seeing; it is rather a basic circular one. The leather wrapping on it does make it more comfortable to hold. Paddle shifters are standard on all trims thankfully. The instrument cluster is a 12.3-inch high-resolution TFT panel. The quality of the switches on the F-Type is immaculate. These aren’t your usual press switches, these are more of a flip-style switch. Flipping these gives a satisfying feeling. These are rubberized and textured so no fingerprints whatsoever. 

The car comes with climate control as standard. The A/C vents have a nice trick to impress someone special. The ones on the dashboard are hidden under it, and once you turn on the climate control, they rise from the inside and they are so very well done. Really impressive! The storage spaces inside this cabin are going to be scarce as it is a coupe. Still, you have your glove box, cup holders, and some storage under the armrest with USB ports and a MicroSD card slot. The seats on the F-Type are very nicely bolstered with a hollowed-out area below the headrest. The seats are totally adjustable in any way you please and have a memory function for up to 3 people. The seats are very comfortable, and the legroom and headroom is no issue whatsoever.

Thanks to Jaguar, they didn’t add a second row just for the sake of it, which would have been a disaster. Mustang owners are suffering now, they can confirm it. The infotainment system on the car has a 10-inch touch screen with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay support. The touch response of the screen is very good. The standard sound system is a 10-speaker setup from Meridian of 380W, and you can get a glass-shattering experience with a 770W system at $880 extra. Major infotainment features include-

  • 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster
  • Impressive sound system
  • Real-time traffic updates
  • WiFi Hotspot, Wireless mobile charger
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Exterior

The 2022 Jaguar F-type is hands down one of the best-looking coupes in the market. Interestingly the overall design resembles a Maserati or an Aston Martin, a bit too much. Not a big problem though since you are free to take inspiration from everywhere. We genuinely hope that Jaguar doesn't change this design for at least a decade, it is so timeless. The headlights are especially the hottest piece of discussion on this car. The sharp blade-shaped DRLs coupled with 4 square LEDs give Bugatti a run for their money.

The car gets wider at wheels and narrows down just a little bit in the midsection, a design masterpiece indeed. The hood has two functional air intakes. The taillight section has kept the overall signature F-Type design but has made it sharper. One easy giveaway of which F-Type you have is the exhaust tips. The base variant comes with a trapezoid-shaped big exhaust tip in the center, The V-6 variant gets dual pot exhaust at the center, and the top trim gets 2 sets of twin pot exhaust tips.

There should have been a spoiler on such a performance machine you might think. It is hidden and comes out only when needed, like the one on Lexus LFA. But it is more subtle than the Lexus LFA. Seeing all this, we've started to think that the premium price tag Jaguar is asking is worth it. Major exterior highlights of the 2022 Jaguar F-Type Coupe are-

  • Heated front windshield
  • Powered tailgate
  • Fixed panoramic roof
  • SVO Special Effect Paint W/Gloss Finish
  • 20" 5 Spoke 'Style 5102' Wheels W/Gloss Black Finish

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Safety

The 2022 F-Type will have the same chassis as the previous year. It is constructed with an Aluminium unibody chassis for lighter weight but with the same strength as the steel counterparts. As the ritual goes, automakers don’t allow their pricey performance machines in the crash tests. It must be of sentimental value for them, but passenger safety should sit on top of their list, anyway. The car is equipped with many active safety features like a rear-view camera, forward collision warning, parking sensors, driver drowsiness monitoring, and lane-keep assist. More safety features include:-

  • Remote SOS Emergency Call
  • Tire Specific Low Tire Pressure Warning
  • Side Impact Beams
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • Parallel park (Optional)
  • Blindspot monitoring (Optional)

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Competition

2022 Jaguar F-Type vs 2021 BMW M4 Coupe

Technically, BMW is superior with its more powerful engine, and both the cars have totally different design aspects. There is that manual gear shift available for purists, which is becoming a rarity these days. The interior on the M4 suits the overall theme well. The only gripe would be that the base price is already high and options will make it go further. So you are looking at approximately an $80,000 price tag.

2022 Jaguar F-Type vs 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman

The Porsche 718 could be the cheapest sports car you may have with a big name behind it. Both Jaguar and Porsche are well known for their precise handling. The performance numbers are almost the same on both cars, but the driving fun a Porsche offers hasn’t found any match to date. The cargo space is more on this one but at the cost of two passengers' occupation. Anyway, with the small stature Porsche has, it would have been a disastrous second row.

2022 Jaguar F Type vs 2021 Lexus RC 350 F Sport

The Lexus RC 350 F Sport is another worthy competitor for the F-Type. It comes cheaper, has slightly more headroom and legroom, and even has a shorter turning radius for improved maneuverability. However, all those factors only make it marginally better. The F-Type beats the Lexus in terms of power and performance, and even handling. The Jaguar even has bigger cargo space.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Final Verdict

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type would be a perfect choice for those who want a completely unique-looking sports car but don’t want those big V-6 or V-8 engines. One thing which requires quite a lot of research is why Jaguar has put such an astonishing price tag on the base variant. It has reached Porsche territory, and obviously, people will lean more towards the German sports car. One thing that is worth mentioning is that the interior quality and perfection on the Jaguar are better than on the Porsche. BMW M4 is great, and it all depends on if you like the way it looks or not. The V-6 & V-8 variants are priced better than the base variant, but they are still on the higher side. If you can spend the high dollar without breaking a sweat, the 2022 F-Type is a car so unique it might become your identity.
