From Jaguar USA- a new 2021 Jaguar F-Type has been announced this month featuring a redesigned model with a new exterior and interior design, enhanced tuning, and more technology and convenience features to elevate this definitive Jaguar sports car.
Read more for a quick snapshot of the “need-to-know” information and stay tuned to Park Place Jaguar as more information is released over the new year.
The new F-Type still embodies the Jaguar design DNA in its purest form, but now, looks more beautiful than ever with even more driver reward. Drivers have the options between a 4-6-8 cylinder options, all with eight-speed transmissions with full manual control.
The new F-TYPE also offers more driver-focused technology, including a reconfigurable, high-definition 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as standard and software-over-the-air functionality so future software updates can be made at the customer’s convenience without additional trips to the service center.
“State-of-the-art technologies together with luxurious materials and finishes deliver beauty with purpose in an interior which will delight driver and passenger alike even before the engine starts and the journey begins. Jaguar has been making sports cars for more than 70 years, and that rich heritage has inspired the team to create something truly extraordinary.”
The proportions of the new F-Type are instantly recognizable, but there are a few key design enhancements that make this new F-Type a pure representation of Jaguar design language.
- Super-slim LED headlights with subtly updated ‘Calligraphy’ signature ‘J’ daytime running lights blend perfectly into the ‘liquid metal’ surfacing of the new clamshell hood.
- The rear haunches enhance the vehicle’s inherently dramatic, purposeful form. The LED rear light clusters have been subtly updated too. Now slimmer, to match the headlights, they feature a bolder, ‘Chicane’ light graphic introduced by the all-electric I-PACE performance SUV.
- The bumpers are new, and introduce bolder surfaces with discreet signature graphics to enhance the overall design and provide greater differentiation across the model range, from the F-TYPE to the F-TYPE R-Dynamic to the F-TYPE R.
- A new clamshell hood design sweeps elegantly back from the slimline LED headlights.
And that’s just a few of the subtle, yet powerful updates made to the exterior of this iconic sports car for an overall more muscular tone form front to back.
Inside, the driver-focused ‘1+1’ cabin envelops the occupants with luxurious materials such as Windsor Leather, Suedecloth and Noble Chrome, while Jaguar craftsmanship is embodied in beautiful details such as monogram stitching on the seats and door trim.
Other updates to the elegant interior include:
- the 12.3-inch reconfigurable HD TFT instrument cluster and Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment system
- 12-inch reconfigurable HD TFT instrument cluster with graphics unique to the F-TYPE. This offers a choice of three display themes, including a full map. True to sportscar form, the default setting sports a large central tachometer.
- the F-TYPE features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as standard13, along with software-over-the-air functionality
The intense eye for detail even touched the seatbelts (yes, you heard that right). The seat belt guides are finished with discreet ‘Jaguar Est. 1935 markings’, which are proudly repeated on the glove compartment release button surround. This subtle reference signifies the year the Jaguar name was first used by company founder Sir William Lyons to brand one of his beautiful cars.
A range of powerful, responsive engines in the 2021 F-TYPE includes four-, six- and eight-cylinder options with 296 hp, 380 hp and 575 hp respective outputs. All are matched to eight-speed Quickshift transmissions with full manual control capability using either the SportShift gear selector or the steering wheel-mounted paddles.
The new 2021 Jaguar F-Type will be available in an F-Type R configuration, F-Type R Dynamic, and F-Type core models. Learn more here.
