Jaguar F-Type facelift debuts with new V8 engine & tech

The Jaguar F-Type has been to the groomer for a makeover.

Jaguar has released the updated F-Type facelift. The sports car comes in both coupe and convertible body styles.


So, what changes have been made to the exterior?

The Jaguar F-Type facelift gets a new front end with a wider, rectangular grille and a redesigned front bumper. The headlights are sleeker and feature J-shaped DRLs. While the rear end looks similar to the outgoing car, minor changes like the reworked LED tail lights and rear diffuser add a fresh new look.

Step inside the cabin and the F-Type doesn’t seem to have changed much, except that you now get a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The infotainment system is now compatible with over-the-air updates and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.


The Jaguar F-Type facelift is offered with the same set of engines as before. The lower trims get the 2.0-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder with 296 hp and 295 lb-ft and 3.0-liter, V6 supercharged engine producing 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. There’s also the option of a 450 hp 5.0-liter V8 engine.

The F-Type R comes with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that has been tuned to produce 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. That’s 25 hp and 14 lb-ft more than the old car. The Jag can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and is limited to a top speed of 186 mph. All engines come paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel drive is available on select variants.


How much does the new F-type cost?

The Jaguar F-Type facelift is slightly pricier than the old car. In the UK, prices start at £54,060. Jaguar has not released the US pricing yet.
