2022 Jaguar F-TYPE
The new 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE models bridge the gap between motor racing and the prestige of an executive corner office. Yet, what would be the ideal trim to buy? Read on as we explore the F-TYPE series.
Essential Features of the 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE
These cars are reserved for individuals who boast refined tastes and healthy budgets. The 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE’s top models thrust forward with 575 horsepower and reach speeds of 300km/h through a 3.7-second acceleration (0-100km/h). The secret to this performance is the 5.0-litre V8 gas engine that sits under the hood of all these trims.
Enough of the racetrack—let’s see what each model can bring to your lifestyle.
F-TYPE Standard Trim
Even this line’s most basic trim does an outstanding job of merging classic taste with modern convenience. Sprint forward at 4.6 seconds of 0-100km/h acceleration, reaching top speed at 285km/h with 444 horsepower.
Rolling in at $87,200, this coupé has a rear camera plus rear and front parking aid. It also has an interactive display equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bumping the price up to $90,300, the Convertible loses the top, and with it, the rear camera and parking assist. However, you keep the Navigation Pro System, and a retractable roof means you’ll be able to show off those sport seats with grained leather and suede cloth facings. Lastly, don’t forget: the F-TYPE rolls in 20-inch, five-spoke, gloss silver finish wheels.
This class experiences a price spike, but it’s justified. The performance specs remain similar to the standard trim, but here we have an all-wheel drivetrain system and a couple of extra options.
For $97,400, you have the option to flaunt the Gloss Black Body Package and the six split-spoke wheels of the R-Dynamic Coupé model. Though you’d get the delta aluminum centre console and the R-Dynamic treadplates with both models in this trim, taking the top off in the Convertible is the best way to flash them.
Here’s where things ramp up. The R model speeds away at 300km/h, getting to 100km/h in less than four seconds and powering on with an impressive 575 horsepower.
Take the F-TYPE R Coupé home for $124,000. Its sleek shape conceals the ebony interior, Windsor leather seats await inside, and the elegant R branding in all the right places. The keyless entry, the red brake callipers, and 10-spoke wheels all conspire to create an iconic, eye-catching figure.
Short words always suffice when dealing with top quality, and the Jaguar brand speaks for itself. In recap, the 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE line has a neat and concise list of three trim classes, and each has one coupé and one convertible variation. This new Jaguar line represents everything you could ever want from a sports car.
When deciding on a specific model, you first have to identify if you value the traditional look of a convertible over the nifty gadgets of the coupé counterparts. Then, choosing your trim class is just a question of what you can afford. If you can go up to the F-TYPE R, we 100% recommend you do.
