F-TYPE range goes V8 only
Jaguar farewells four- and six-cylinder F-TYPE models for V8 power in 2022
9 Nov 2021

JAGUAR will farewell turbocharged four-cylinder and supercharged six-cylinder versions of its F-TYPE coupe and convertible as the range moves to offer only supercharged V8 power for 2022.
Available in two states of tune, the 5.0-litre unit will offer 331kW/580Nm P450 R-Dynamic variants in coupe and convertible body styles, the 423kW/700Nm P450 R available as a coupe only. Both are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission with R-Dynamic models driving the rear wheels, the sportier R version adding all-wheel drive and an active sports exhaust.
The range will now be priced from $159,900 plus on-road costs, almost $32,000 more than the current 2.0-litre coupe entry model ($127,942). Jaguar’s six-cylinder F-TYPE range kicked off at $174,642 previously, with the MY21 V8 range beginning at $264,842. For V8 fans, it makes the MY22 line-up something of a bargain.
The P450 R-Dynamic coupe (from $159,900) and convertible (from $164,900) range can accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 285km/h. The latest F-TYPE variant is enhanced with Jaguar’s R-Dynamic pack as standard and includes 20-inch alloy wheels in a six-spoke design finished in contrasting dark grey and diamond turned finish.
For the F-TYPE R coupe (from $264,966), the dash to 100km/h falls to just 3.7 seconds with v-max electronically restricted to 300km/h.
The MY22 variant now includes metallic and premium paint as standard, alongside a fixed panoramic roof, exterior black design pack, aluminium paddle shifts, blind-spot assist pack, tyre pressure monitoring, and 20-inch alloy wheels in a five spoke design finished in satin grey.
All variants are equipped as standard with Jaguar’s configurable and adaptive damping system and quiet start function to limit exhaust noise on start-up.
The range also includes Jaguar’s 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and 10.0-inch touch Pro infotainment array featuring proprietary satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and DAB+ digital radio reception.
All F-TYPE models are also equipped with a 380-watt/10-speaker premium Meridian sound system with two subwoofers as standard issue.
The flagship F-TYPE SVR remains missing in action with the latest update, though its muscular supercharged V8 lives on in the current F-TYPE R. The slow-selling 221kW/400Nm four-cylinder and 280kW/460Nm supercharged V6 have also passed into the history books, alongside the previous low-output 250kW/450Nm V6 which was cut from the line-up in 2019.
Jaguar F-TYPE models continue to be backed by a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with included roadside assistance and five-year/130,000km servicing package.
The MY22 Jaguar F-TYPE coupe and convertible range is available to order now. First deliveries are expected in dealerships from December (2021).
