The F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe has been one of the most popular offerings from the British manufacturer Jaguar. The 2021 model year brought a lot of changes to this luxury sports unit, and we expect the 2022 F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe to be more of a carryover model. However, the vehicle does not lose its appeal just because it's going to be a carryover model because it offers exactly what you want. A balanced combination of sheer power, great exterior, and luxurious interior is what makes this car so popular among petrolheads. This Jaguar comes equipped with a 3.0L supercharged V6, which delivers decent power and performance figures as well.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


However, one of the few drawbacks this car has is its ride quality. Even though it comes with a stiff sporty suspension, the bumps make their way into the cabin, making the ride a little less enjoyable. With a price tag of $81,000 for the previous model year, the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is expecting stiff competition from Porsche 718 Cayman S, Audi RS5 Coupe, and the Mercedes AMG E53. Let's see if the Jag can hold its reputation against the European rivals or not. Even though the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is going to be a carryover model, there are some changes that you’ll be able to see. 

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Features

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic is denoted with the codename P380 and comes with a single powertrain combination. The engine under the hood is a 3.0L Supercharged V6 that puts out 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of maximum power and torque. The power is delivered to all four wheels through 8-speed automatic transmission. The following are the major expected standout features of the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic-

The F-Type R-Dynamic is a standalone trim with a single powertrain option. The R-Dynamic trim comes with a 3.6L Supercharged V6 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The pricing is expected to start at around $82,000. The R-Dynamic stands in the middle section of the F-Type lineup and is an ideal combo of power and luxury.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Engine and Performance

As mentioned earlier, the engine variant you’re going to receive in the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is the same 3.0L supercharged V6 that is going to deliver 380 horses and 339 lb-ft of torque. The engine is going to be mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which transfers the power to all four wheels. The company discarded the Inline-4 for the supercharged V6 last year, and that has been a good decision in terms of power, but the economy, never mind. 

Speaking of power, the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic is expected to run the 0-60 mph corridor in just 4.9 seconds and covers a quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds. Even though these numbers are lucrative, we’ve seen better. The supercharger does delay the power transmission to the wheels and the AWD does not create enough initial drag to see the car fly past the finish line. However, these figures aren't too bad either because the performance you see is much better than what it was before the remodel.

Even though the price tag on this Jag is the highest amongst the competitors, the performance isn't quite overwhelming. The Jag comes in third place in terms of power output, after Audi RS5 and Mercedes-Benz AMG E53. Also, this British automobile isn't the quickest of the lot either. That title goes to theAudi RS 5 for it has the highest power and torque on paper. It shoots off the start, thanks to its Quattro AWD tech. ThePorsche finds itself on the middle ground between the F-Type and the Merc in both 0-60 and quarter-mile.

How does the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe handle?

Speaking of handling, the manufacturer has done a decent job. The reason we use the word decent and not extraordinary is that you can still feel all the bumps inside. However, if you keep the ride quality aside for a bit, the handling is mama mia. With the finely tuned suspension setup and the torque vectoring differential, which basically improves the traction in almost every situation, the handling feels like clockwork. 

With the responsive steering wheel and great aerodynamics, the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic coupe eases into the curves without any problems at all. Overall, the ride quality is also not as bad as it sounds, it just falls a bit short of something you’d expect in an $80,000 vehicle. Overall the F-Type R-Dynamic is an impressively handling sports coupe with a slight hit taken on the ride comfort side.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Fuel Economy

Well, with the supercharged V6 plugged under the hood, you can't really expect much in the fuel economy section. However, this isn't the first time we’ve seen a manufacturer focusing on performance more than efficiency. However, speaking of efficiency, the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is expected to deliver an average mpg of 17 in the city, 27 on the highway, and 22 combined. And with the 18.5-gallon fuel tank, the expected range crosses over 450 miles on the highway.

As compared to the competitors, the 2022 F-Type R-Dynamic is expected to be at par in terms of fuel economy. The Mercedes is the best performing coupe here, delivering a combined efficiency of 24 mpg, whereas the Audi RS5 delivers the worst at 20 mpg combined. However, since the Mercedes-AMG E-53 has a smaller fuel tank, the F-Type delivers more range on the highway.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Interior

Looking at it, you can easily identify that the interior is where a lot of that $80,000 is spent on. The F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe comes with a cabin that exudes luxury from every part. The interior design is soothing to the eyes, and ergonomics are on point. You can see that the manufacturer has cut no corners on getting the interior as premium as they can. You can get an optional Windsor leather upholstery, but as a stock, you receive a suede interior. The Jaguar branding is omnipresent inside the cabin, which does add more to the aesthetic. Keeping the design aside, the comfort is top-notch. The seats are 12-way power-adjustable with lumbar support and heated to keep you warm during the winter. The steering wheel can also be customized to be leather-wrapped and heated for more comfort. 

However, like most coupes, the declining roofline starts to bug taller people. This can get uncomfortable in the long run, so consider that before purchasing this vehicle. One cool feature is that the AC vents are hidden under the dash and reveal themselves when you turn on the automatic temperature control. Overall, the interior feels great to be in, and the seats give you good bolstering to help you stay in the middle when you redline the vehicle on the freeway. Since it is going to be a carryover model, the interior of the 2022 F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is expected to stay the same, if not better.

As compared to the competition, the cargo capacity isn't exactly embarrassing in the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe. A 14.4 cubic feet of boot space can store a decent amount of luggage. The Porsche has different cargo areas in the front and back and combined they provide a slightly better room measuring 14.9 cu-ft, which is not actually as usable as the Jag. Apart from that, the F-Type seems to be slightly larger than the competition in terms of interior dimensions. Standout interior features include-

  • 12-way electric memory front seats
  • Sports seats with leather and suede cloth facings
  • Fighter Jet Inspired SportShift Selector
  • Single-zone Climate Control
  • Electrically adjustable steering column with memory

2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe: Infotainment and connectivity

The infotainment system of the 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic is intuitive enough. With the large 12.3-inch touchscreen display that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, the entertainment unit feels good to use.

The standard audio setup is a 10 speaker setup, which is crisp, but if you want more, get the 770W Meridian audio system for an extra $900. We guarantee you the satisfaction will be worth the price. The major highlights of the infotainment system include:-

  • 10-inch Touchscreen Display
  • 770W Meridian sound system
  • Real-time traffic updates
  • WiFi Hotspot
  • Wireless mobile charger
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Exterior

Since this is going to be a carryover model, it is still going to come with the simple yet elegant design that it has acquired after the redesign last year. The front profile looks aggressive with the sleeker headlights, and the bonnet gets a few strong lines that blend in well. The sides are a bit tapered, and the rear profile comes across as the widest. 

With the R-Dynamic body kit, it will look definitely better than the base variant. The tail lamps are also quite aggressive in style and are situated close to the center, giving them a slightly smaller appearance. Overall, the exterior is a work of art that is going to attract attention for sure. Overall the F-Type R-Dynamic is an extremely beautiful and aggressive-looking machine at the same time.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Safety

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic is expected to feature all sorts of safety features to ensure the safety of the occupants. At the same time, the safety features will also help in keeping the sports coupe on the intended path in full control.

2022 Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe Final Verdict

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic comes with a great array of features for the price, which makes this sports coupe quite lucrative. However, do keep in mind that it isn't the fastest vehicle in the segment, but if you don't carry a stopwatch all the time to measure a car’s 0-60mph, then it's not going to feel sluggish at all. Also, it features more interior space and also better handling, which both add to the overall experience. Hence if you’re looking for a premium sports coupe, the 2022 F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe is a good option to explore.
