Jaguar goes V8-only on the F-Type

Jaguar redesigned its F-Type for the 2021 model year. The tweaks add up to a car that’s still visually interesting, but it feels as if something was missing. Now more things are missing because Jaguar has decided to ditch the four and six-cylinder offerings for 2022. The F-Type is going V8 only, and there’s a new P450 model that slides in under the top-spec F-Type R.

Jaguar F-Type P450

The F-Type P450 is available as a coupe or convertible, with RWD or AWD, and starts at just over $70,000. Under the hood sits a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 444 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque. Jag says both the AWD and RWD models will dash from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. And if your neighbors hate you, there’s a Quiet Start feature to keep the noise down when you press the start button. That, thankfully, can be overridden as you so desire.

Jaguar will still offer the range-topping F-Type R. It has the same supercharged 5.0 but instead produces 575 horsepower and is only available with AWD. It will get from 0-60 mph about a second quicker compared to the P450, and it does so with a starting price up around $105,000.

We have to assume the four and six-cylinder models just don’t move and sales needles for Jaguar. If people are shopping for an F-Type, they likely also want the noise they expect to come along with it. Thus this move makes sense, though we will say that the 380-horsepower V6 version was pretty good.

For more on the 2021 model, here’s my review of the car for Autotrader:

  1. I sort of wonder if this is US or North America-specific. It doesn’t look like any UK outlets have picked this up, and with more stringent emissions regulations and such in Europe, it seems surprising to stick with an older, bigger engine over a smaller engine with a bit of light electrical trickery. Unscientifically as well, it looks like there was roughly a 50/50 split of 6 and 8’s sold up here (based on the 20 for sale locally).
