Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


With Jaguar also eyeing the high-performance EV market it seems imperative that the carmaker will bring in the hybrid version of the sportscar for the model year 2022 and even an all-electric version. Once launched it will go up against its rivals such as the Lexus LC 500, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and the Nissan GT-R Premium. But will it offer a better package for the price compared to its rivals? Let’s find out.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe Features

The R variant of Jaguar vehicles are ones to watch out for, as they sport some of the deadliest engines made by the manufacturer. The Jaguar F-Type R makes use of a supercharged V8, which is the most expensive engine in their lineup. Moreover, it comes with a truckload of features packed into a coupe body and maintains its reputation as one of the most stylish performance coupes on sale today.

We Recommend

With only one trim on offer, it isn’t easy or hard to recommend any. However, if we were to ask you to choose between all the trims or blindly pick the quickest, you’d be quite surprised. While the F-Type R does offer blistering performance due to its supercharged engine, it's a great car to go sideways in and has always been so. The front-engine layout that has been forgone for 2022 only amplified this coupe’s nature, and we can expect the weight in the mid-engine layout to affect handling as well. 

Therefore, if you’re looking for a better handler, the R-Dynamic would be a great choice. Although you will definitely lose to an F-Type R around a track because the difference in handling is in the lighter curb weight, which is more than compensated for by the bigger engine.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe Engine and Performance

Currently, the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe offers a 5.0L supercharged V-8 engine that is capable of pushing out 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. This same engine is expected to make a reappearance with the 2022 model with certain changes and upgrades. It will also offer an all-wheel drive as standard just like the current model and the 8-Speed shiftable automatic gearbox shall also be carried over.

While there is not much information available about the exact engine setup, it will offer at least two electric motors, one for each axle.

Good fuel efficiency shall also translate into a better range as well for the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. While nothing has been made official by the carmaker, the 2022 model will not only offer better fuel efficiency courtesy of the hybrid setup but also a much more aerodynamic design.

Not much has been revealed about the interior dimensions and layout of the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe but as per rumors, it will offer the best-in-class materials. What remains to be seen is how much space it will offer on the inside as the current model’s cabin can feel a bit cramped for taller passengers.

The exterior of the Jaguar F-Type R is often described as beautiful, sometimes even erotic, therefore it is only natural for Jaguar to design bespoke interiors. Standout features within the interior of the 2022 F-Type R include:

  • Sport 12-Way Power Adjustable Front Seats
  • Morzine Cloth Headliner
  • Leather-Wrapped Gear Shifter 
  • Leather upholstered dashboard
  • Metal-looking accents and Aluminum instrument panel 

How is the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe’s infotainment unit?

The 2022 model is expected to get a 12.2-inch touchscreen which shall come with the upgraded and much more smoother Touch Pro interface. It shall also include a wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability and also offer a wireless phone charging pad.

Some of the highlight features of the infotainment unit would be:

  • The wireless smartphone charging pad 
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Wifi hotspot
  • Updated interface with OTA updates
  • An optional larger touchscreen display
  • Premium 10-speaker Meridian 380W Audio System

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe Exterior

The current model of the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe offers a distinctive look and the 2022 model is only going to get more distinctive. Not much is known about the looks of the 2022 model currently, but some spy shots do suggest that the newer model will offer an all-new look.

It shall be much sleeker as well as much more capable of attracting more eyeballs.
