2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

There has been talking of a completely redesigned, mid-engine F-Type for quite some time, and rightfully so. The outgoing F-Type is in dire need of an update, as several rivals are going the mid-engined route for more balance and performance. We hope that Jaguar jumps on the bandwagon very soon, and rumor has it could also be renamed as the J-Type. However, in light of the 2021 refresh, the current front-engined model is expected to be in production for a couple more years.

The Jaguar F-Type is a performance grand tourer with a two-door, two-seater design that has been around since 2013. The convertible model was launched first followed by the Coupe model in 2014. The mechanicals and engine options haven’t been updated since its launch, but the design received a significant makeover last year with a completely redesigned front with thin headlights and taillights, improving the overall look. Despite the facelift, sales have been declining in recent years, with just under 2000 units sold annually. 

There are three engine options to choose from, and even the base inline-4 models are good fun to drive and exhibit excellent handling due to their weight characteristics, while the larger engines have stood the test of time so far and provide plenty of power as you toy with the throttle. We expect the 2022 model to be priced similarly, starting at around $65,000 for the base convertible model. If Jaguar decides to finally launch the predicted mid-engine model, prices could increase significantly. Rivals include the beastly Audi R8, new and improved Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and the reputed Porsche 911 Turbo.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


If Jaguar launches the predicted mid-engine model, prices are sure to rise significantly with new powertrains on offer including a hybrid model. On the other hand, if the current model is continued, prices will be similar since it will be a carryover model.

There are three trim levels on offer for the convertible model: P300, R Dynamic, and R. Prices are expected to start at $65,000 for the base convertible P300 model which gets a 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-4 engine that sends power to the rear wheels using a ZF sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable seats, 10-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and a recently added 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Upgrading to the R Dynamic model will add $20,000 to the base price and includes a more powerful 3.0L Supercharged V6 engine, and all-wheel-drive as standard. The top-of-the-line R model crosses the $100,000 mark, with prices starting at $106,000 and includes the powerful supercharged V8 engine, all-wheel-drive, 20-inch wheels with staggered-width tires, active exhaust, LED headlights, improved leather upholstery, adaptive dampers, ambient lighting, a premium Meridian audio system, and an electronic limited-slip differential. As expected, there are plenty of options on offer including premium Windsor leather upholstery, heated windshield, and more which can drive the price up significantly.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Features

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type is available in two trims P300 and First Edition. The F-Type P300 trim starts at $64,700 and the F-Type First Edition trim starts at $75,400. Both the trims get a 5.0-liter supercharged inline-4 engine that sends power to the rear wheels. Standard features include LED headlights with Jaguar’s signature daytime running lights, active sports exhaust, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Connectivity.

We recommend

We recommend going for the base P300 trim until and unless you have extra $10,000 to show off in the exclusive body kit clad F-Type convertible. Furthermore you get all the necessary features in the base trim itself. 

Release Date

With no official release date yet for the 2022 model, but we can expect it to go on sale in spring of 2022.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Engine and Performance

If Jaguar launches the rumored mid-engine model, it will be the second car in Jaguar’s history to get a mid-engine layout after the infamous XJ 220 which was the fastest production car when it was launched back in 1993, with a top speed of 220 MPH. The new F-Type might get a hybrid powertrain that combines the V6 engine with dual electric motors for more performance, like some of its rivals.

But if Jaguar carries over the same model, we can expect the same engine options. The base P300 model gets a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 engine which produces a respectable 296 hp and is also found in several other Jaguar models. It propels the F-Type to 60 in 5.7 seconds. The next rung up the ladder is the R Dynamic model which gets a more powerful 3.0L Supercharged V6 engine that bumps the power up to 380 hp. Unlike the base model, the V6 gets an all-wheel drive as standard and reaches 60 in just 4.8 seconds.

The top-of-the-line R model gets the powerful Supercharged V8 engine which produces an impressive 575 hp, making it one of the most powerful cars in its segment. With the V8 engine, the F-Type reaches 60 in just 3.5 seconds and reaches the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds. Regardless of the engine selected, all models get a smooth and capable 8-speed automatic transmission. The Jaguar F-Type has always been a very good handler, with a firmer ride and predictable steering. 

Despite an underlying firmness, the F-Type delivers a balanced ride, and the steering wheel is light and easy to use at city speeds. The F-Type makes the most power in its segment but is beaten out by both the Audi R8 and Chevrolet Corvette Stingray from 0 to 60, both of which have sub-3-second timings compared to the F-Type’s 3.5 seconds. Moreover, rivals are only on the road to improvement, with the Audi R8 rumored to go all-electric for 2022 with 1000 hp on tap, making it a lot faster.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Fuel Economy

Unlike some of its rivals, the F-Type can be bought with three engine options including an efficient Inline-4 engine which gets an EPA rating of 23 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway, which is the highest in its class.

The more powerful Supercharged V6 engine returns 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highways, while the fire breathing supercharged V8 is rated for 16 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway, which is impressive considering the significantly higher power output compared to rivals.

Surprisingly, even with the big 6.2L V8 engine, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the most economical of the bunch with an impressive EPA rating of 27 MPG on the highways, which, combined with the 18.5-gallon fuel tank, gives it the longest range of 500 miles. The Audi R8 with the big V10 engine is the least efficient of the bunch with a combined rating of 17 MPG. Even with the smaller flat-6 engine, the Porsche 911 offers similar figures as the F-Type on the highways.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Interior

With the recent 2021 refresh, the interiors received significant updates including a fully digital gauge cluster, and an improved infotainment system. The F-Type can seat two adults in comfort, with plenty of bolstering to keep you in place while carving corners. Even with its high-performance nature, the interiors are as luxurious and well-appointed as most luxury cars. Both seats are ergonomically positioned for a comfortable driving position with easy-to-access controls. 

The new 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster shows plenty of information at the press of a button. All visible surfaces are covered in premium soft-touch materials with plenty of chrome trims and accents used to break the monotony. The improved infotainment works well and is easy to use with a huge 10-inch touchscreen dominating the dashboard which gets the InControl Touch Pro software.

Connectivity features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto are available as standard. Unfortunately, the interiors still feel cramped, especially on the convertible model, with a paltry cargo space of just 4 cubic feet. If the new mid-engined model is launched in 2022, we can expect completely revamped interiors with improved cargo space. Some of the notable features are:

  • New 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster
  • A 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • InControl Touch Pro software
  • Apple Carplay, and Android Auto connectivity
  • Premium audio system
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Wireless charging
  • Heated and cooled seats

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Exterior

The Jaguar F-Type has always been a very handsome sports car, and with the recent updates, the looks have further improved. From the thin headlights to the sleek body, the F-Type is beautiful no matter the angle. If the mid-engine model is launched, we can expect a different design language.

The V8 models also get quad-tipped active exhausts which look and sound menacing, while the V6 models get a central-mounter exhaust. Unfortunately, practicality is severely limited because of the negligible cargo space, especially on the convertible models which stand at just 4 cubic feet. With the expected mid-engined model, the cargo space could be significantly improved by offering cargo space under the bonnet as well as the boot.​​​​​

Some of the standout exterior features are:

  • Thin LED headlights and taillights
  • Quad tipped exhausts
  • Automatic headlights
  • A wider and more prominent grille
  • Wider rear wheel arches on the convertible model
  • New badging

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Safety

Being a low-volume and expensive sports car, the Jaguar F-Type hasn’t been tested by the NHTSA or IISH yet. But it does come with plenty of safety features as standard including forward automatic braking, active lane control, and a lot more. Standard safety features include:

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Forward collision warning
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Lane keep assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Blindspot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Emergency SOS service

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Competition

2022 Jaguar F-Type vs 2022 Audi R8

With the expected mid-engine layout, the new F-Type will be a lot more similar to the Audi R8. The R8 is the faster car, hitting 60 MPH almost half a second faster than the F-Type. For 2022, the R8 is expected to get an all-electric powertrain with a massive 1000 hp on tap, which will make it the fastest in its segment. The R8 is also more practical than the F-Type with more interior and cargo space on offer.

2022 Jaguar F-Type vs 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Unlike the Jaguar F-Type, the Stingray gets only one engine option, a 6.2L V8. The Corvette Stingray is significantly cheaper than the F-Type and is also faster to 60 by 0.7 seconds. The interiors also offer more space, with significantly more cargo space on offer. The Corvette Stingray is not slated to receive any significant updates for 2022, with no hybrid models expected anytime soon.

2022 Jaguar F-Type vs 2022 Porsche 911

The Porsche 911 is slated to get several new updates in 2022 including a refreshed GT3 model with more performance. The 911 gets a smaller turbocharged engine which is more efficient but 0.2 seconds slower than the F-Type. Unlike the F-Type, the 911 offers more practicality with seating for 4 passengers and a spacious cargo area.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible Final Verdict

The F-Type continues to be one of the most handsome and best handling grand tourers on the market. Issues like the limited cabin and cargo space will be improved if Jaguar decides to release the anticipated mid-engined model, which will also offer a hybrid powertrain. Rivals like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray have already moved to the mid-engined layout, and it’s only natural for Jaguar to follow suit. Even if the current model is retained for 2022, it is still a very good choice, especially with the V8 engine and that glorious soundtrack.
