2021 Jaguar F-Type MODEL OVERVIEW

Pros

  • Less tail happy than before
  • Powerful V-8 engine in F-Type R
  • Attractive exterior styling

Cons

  • Brakes lack stopping power
  • Rear end squirms during hard braking

The Jaguar F-Type channels the British brand's heritage, creating a modern sports car successor to the legendary E-Type. Available in coupe or convertible body styles, the Jaguar F-Type blends attractive design with thrilling performance. In addition to the standard model, there's also the potent F-Type R, which has AWD standard.

What's New

  • Heavily refreshed with new front fascia, thin headlights, and updated interior.
  • First Edition model based on the P300 grade adds 12-way power sport seats, Windsor Leather upholstery with contrast stitching, aluminum-trimmed instrument panel, leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum spokes, metal door sills with Limited Edition branding, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
  • New Heritage 60 Edition makes its debut

What We Think

Thanks to extensive suspension upgrades, the refreshed 2021 Jaguar F-Type possesses excellent stability—the Jag is no longer as tail happy as it once was. The 575-hp supercharged V-8 in the F-Type R provides prodigious power. Complementing the powerful engine is a well-tuned chassis that gives the F-Type agile handling despite the car's heavy curb weight. The brakes, however, lack stopping force, and the pedal is squishy and vague. Under hard or sudden braking, we found that the F-Type R's rear end squirms excessively, which doesn't inspire confidence.
