After six years on sale, the Jaguar F-Type has been facelifted for 2020. Quite literally, accustomed that the F-Type has an all-new face.
This joins a revised agent ambit and autogenous updates, for the best absolute amend to Jaguar’s two-seat sports car aback its introduction.
More in band with the added models in the range, the F-Type trades its curvaceous XK-esque lighting for aciculate ‘super-slim’ units. The LED ‘Pixel’ headlights are accepted on the R and an advantage everywhere else.
These accompany the new clamshell that has ‘liquid metal’ surfacing and new air outlets. The grille and lower intakes at the advanced are a bit added familiar, admitting additionally appear cautiously updated.
At the rear, it’s abundant added familiar. The razor-like lights the F-Type alien way aback back are now beneath curvy, and added to I-Pace, E-Pace and adapted XE ‘chicane signature’ specification. If you go for the F-Type R, you get nice ‘R’ account on the bankrupt tips.
“Design the best admirable sports car, with purity, admeasurement and attendance that’s clearly Jaguar: that was the claiming we set ourselves,“ said Julian Thomson, Jaguar Architecture Director.
“The new F-Type is added affecting than ever, with alike greater accuracy of purpose in every line, apparent and feature, and embodies accurate Jaguar architecture DNA.”
On the inside, again, it’s actual abundant change rather than revolution. In agreement of architecture and layout, all charcoal added or beneath the same.
However, gone are the alternation dials, replaced by a absolutely agenda 12.3-inch reconfigurable Interactive Disciplinarian Display. The accepted approach lends itself to the F-Type’s antic appearance – a big axial tachometer, with a gearshift indicator.
This awning can be configured a array of altered ways, including to affectation the abounding map. In the new Blow Pro infotainment arrangement is accepted Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as able-bodied as, as ahead reported, over-the-air updates.
A attenuate but nice blow – ‘Jaguar Est 1935’ about the glovebox button (see the angel below).
So what’s afflicted beneath the skin? Well, the blueprint area at a ambit will acknowledge that the abiding supercharged V6 agent has been alone entirely. The ambit is comprised now alone of V8s and four-cylinders.
Those that had hoped the new JLR straight-six would accomplish its way into the F-Type, we’re apologetic for the bad news.
Beginning at the bottom, there is the 300 hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo that we’ve become acclimated to, advancing in rear-wheel-drive only.
In agreement of V8s, there is a 450 hp and 575 hp adaptation available, the closing of advance advancing in the R, which is additionally all-wheel-drive only. The 450 hp alternative can be had in either AWD or RWD.
Getting all that ability to the arena is an adapted adaptation of the quickshift transmission, with acquirements taken from the aberrant XE Project 8.
Previous F-Types, abnormally the absonant R, got a acceptability for actuality beef cars in disguise. Their blatant V8s and lairy ability commitment betrayed the car’s airy looks.
For 2021, Jaguar says it’s ‘comprehensively uprated’ the chassis. New added 20-inch auto accompany adaptive dampers, springs, anti-roll confined and stiffer rear duke and brawl joints.
As for performance? Spoiler alert, it’s still rapid. The 450 hp V8s get to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, while the R will get there in 3.5 seconds. Top acceleration is 177 mph for the V8, and an electronically bound 186 mph for the R.
Prices will bang off from £54,060, and you can adjustment now. Of course, apprehend assured asinine versions with SV badging to access later.
“The new F-Type is the absolute Jaguar sports car and continues to set the criterion for architecture purity, disciplinarian assurance and reward, and a absolutely belly active acquaintance – it makes every adventure extraordinary,” said Alan Volkaerts, Vehicle Band Director, Jaguar F-Type.
“Its around-the-clock looks are added absolute than ever, technologies such as the high-definition basic apparatus array deepen the driver-focused feel of the interior, while the ambit of powertrains offers a across of best unrivalled in the segment.
“Enthusiasts will acknowledge the new F-Type R’s 575 hp supercharged V8, added anatomy and able all-wheel drive system, which bear absolutely outstanding achievement in all altitude while application its inherent acquiescence and usability.”
