Default The Jaguar F-Type Is Getting a Major Facelift with Some Radical Changes

For the first time in more than six years, Jag's gorgeous sports car is getting a big design overhaul.

Quote:
A mysterious, camouflaged Jaguar F-type coupe has been caught by our spies.

It looks like a major facelift for the model, with a totally new front end and an updated tail.

While nothing is confirmed, the F-type could receive Jaguar Land Rover's new inline-six engine.


If you can believe it, the Jaguar F-type is getting a bit long in the tooth. First shown in concept form in 2011, the F-type has been on sale since 2013. Jaguar has steadily updated the car with new powertrains and minor styling updates, but new spy photos seem to indicate that the fast cat will be getting its first major facelift in more than six years.

Although almost all of it is covered in a swirly camo wrap, we can see a number of details on this F-type R coupe that set it apart from current F-types. (We know it's an R because of the quad exhaust tips.) Everything ahead of the A-pillars looks to be totally new given the different front fender/bumper cutlines, which are more horizontal than before. While they're almost completely covered up, it looks like the F-type is trading its tall headlights for very slim units reminiscent of those found on other Jags like the I-Pace, which would be a major design change for the model. A sticker that creates a fake cutline is placed above the actual bumper cut to make it seem like this prototype still has taller lights. Look closely, and you can see the outline of the actual lights and the creases that run above and below the lights to create definition.

The grille has the same classic rounded shape with a central bar through it, but the design of the mesh pattern is new. There are also reshaped intakes on each side of the grille that look more angular than before, and the front splitter is slightly different. It also seems like the hood is smoother than the current car's, although there could be a panel covering up the actual design. The only other changes we can see is are at the rear, where the car is getting a redesigned license-plate area and taillights with squared off lower graphics like those on the refreshed XE.

We don't know anything else about this upcoming F-type refresh beyond what we can see here, but that won't stop us from speculating. Jaguar Land Rover recently introduced a brand-new turbocharged and hybridized inline-six engine on a few Range Rover models, with the new six supplanting the existing supercharged V-6. If it fits in the F-type—and given how long the F-type's hood is, we bet it will—we think it's possible the straight-six will replace the V-6 in Jag's sports car, too. Don't expect a manual transmission, as that option was already killed from the V-6 this year and likely hasn't been engineered to work with the straight-six. The base turbocharged four-cylinder and top-end supercharged V-8 engines should remain, as will the all-wheel-drive system that is standard on some F-types and optional on others. The car should receive a number of tech updates to keep it feeling fresh and modern, and the interior could see big changes as well.

There is a chance that what you see here is actually a mule for the next-generation F-type, but we don't think that's likely. All of the new styling elements seen here look extremely production-ready, and there's nothing about this car that indicates it's a test mule using a new platform or powertrain. Ian Callum, Jag's head of design, has all but confirmed a next-gen F-type, but that would be at least a few years away (the next-gen car could get a four-seat layout and/or become an electric car). This facelifted F-type could be revealed as soon as this summer, likely going on sale as a 2021 model.

It was a close call between the F type S, possibly R and my M2. Sometimes I still wonder if I made the right decision.

**** it, I’m going to hit the powerball this weekend and buy an SVR.

Обновлённый Jaguar F-Type: первые изображения

Новый Jaguar F-type 2020 - КОЛЕСА.ру – автомобильный журнал
Автор: Никита Чуйко

Английское купе в ближайшее время готовится к существенному обновлению, и благодаря шпионским фотоснимкам у нас есть возможность представить, каким оно будет.

F-Type на конвейере уже достаточно давно – с 2013 года. Модель стала серийной версией и практически точной копией концепта Jaguar C-X16, представленного в сентябре 2011 года во Франкфурте. В 2017-м году спорткар получил небольшой рестайлинг, а сейчас проходит испытания автомобиль с куда большими изменениями во внешности. Главная деталь грядущего обновления – совершенно новая передняя оптика, полностью меняющая «лицо» спорткара. Если нынешний F-Type имеет вертикальные фары, придающие ему весьма добродушный вид, то рестайлинговый спорткар получит вытянутые по горизонтали узкие фары. Возможно, решётка радиатора станет крупнее, как видно на шпионских фотографиях, она избавится от пластиковой перекладины для установки номерного знака.

Оптика станет лейтмотивом обновления и в задней части. У нынешнего спорткара фонари имеют полукруглые выемки, обновлённая же модель получит более широкие трапециевидные. Соответственным образом изменится и графика светодиодных элементов, теперь они будут сделаны в стиле рестайлингового седана Jaguar XE, представленного в этом году.

Как сообщают наши коллеги из Motor1, обновлённый F-Type в самой мощной версии может получить 8-цилиндровый битурбированный мотор 4.4 от BMW, который придёт на замену двигателю 5.0 V8 Supercharged. Немецкий мотор, установленный в новую BMW M8 Competition, развивает 616 л.с. и 750 Нм, что на 41 л.с. и 50 Нм превосходит показатели нынешнего Ягуара. Кстати, следующее поколение F-Type может быть построено на среднемоторной платформе.


Премьера рестайлингового английского спорткара ожидается в следующем году.

Сегодня в России купе F-Type представлено аж с пятью вариантами моторов. Самый доступный заднеприводный 300-сильный 2.0 T оценивается в 5 315 000 рублей. Версия с полным приводом и 380-сильным компрессорным 3.0 предлагается минимум за 6 531 000 руб. Самой же дорогой является пятилитровая 575-сильная модификация SVR – 10 669 000 рублей.

Напомним, летом мы провели тест-драйв всей кроссоверной линейки английского бренда.

Believe it or not, the Jaguar F-Type has been on the market for eight straight years without the customary nip and tuck. That’s a lot, even for a sports car that usually gets to live longer than your run-of-the-mill sedan - the best example here is the Nissan 370Z, which still marches on to this day. The 2021 F-Type, however, will come to fix that as Jaguar is looking to revamp its range-topper in order to keep customer interest high, and there have been suggestions that it will be derived from the Aston Martin Vantage.

WWell, fellas, that couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, those presumptions have stemmed from an unofficial rendering based on Jaguar’s F-Type mules spotted in various areas of the world during their pre-production testing, tuning, and tweaking. There’s even a YouTube video uploaded by TFLnow that shows two F-Type prototypes up close, including what looks like a redesigned front end with longer and narrower headlights that stretch towards the back, in a quasi-similar way to those of the Aston Martin Vantage.

Sorry, folks, but we’ll have to challenge you to have another look at the said rendering and thoroughly compare it to the actual front end of the Vantage to see that things simply don’t add up. The camouflage foil is too thick to reveal anything, and if we’ve learned something during all these years of renderings that pop up online, it’s that they’re almost never spot on when it comes to guessing the actual design of an upcoming model. Heck, Toyota Supra’s headlights look more like the Vantage’s. So, please, make the childish rumors stop.

Now, there are a lot of missing pieces from the 2021 Jaguar F-Type puzzle.

We don’t know for sure whether these test mules are helping Jaguar prepare a facelifted variant of the F-Type or a new generation altogether - chances are it’s the former, but if the latter holds any truth, then expect an evolutionary, a la Volkswagen design approach and not too many fireworks.
Sure, the headlights and taillights will get a redesign, as will most likely the F-Type’s front end and derriere. However, the sports car will flaunt the same roofline, side profile, and pillar layout, hence our argument that this is most likely a mid-life refresh.


While we’re at it, let’s also touch on the performance factor - the F-Type is, first and foremost, a sports car, and customers will want to feel that while they’re driving it. At the time of writing, the F-Type could be had in various flavors. The entry-level model is motivated by a 2.0-liter turbo-four making 296 horsepower, while above it sits a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that can churn out either 340 horsepower or 380 horsepower, depending on your trim choice.

At the top of the food chain sits the F-Type R packing a 5.0-liter V-8 making 550 horsepower and the F-Type SVR, which extracts 575 horsepower from the same powerplant. However, for the tweaked model, we expect Jaguar to actually turn things up a notch and get its engineers to breathe more grunt into the straight-four and the V-6 mills.

The spicier rumor comes from the R and SVR models, which some are already touting as in line to get BMW’s twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8.
The unit powers some of BMW’s new models and can crank out up to 617 horsepower inside the M8, yet Jaguar will most likely detune the engine to around 600 horsepower for the SVR.

Jaguar F-type engine lineup
Engine Supercharged V6 Supercharged V6 Supercharged V8 V8 Supercharged
Compression ratio 10.5:1 10.5:1 9.5:1 9.5:1
Power 340 HP @ 6,500 RPM 380 HP @ 6,500 RPM 550 HP @ 6,500 RPM 575 HP @ 6,500 RPM
Torque 332 LB-FT @ 3,500 - 5,000 RPM 339 @ 3,500 - 5,000 RPM 502 @ 3,500 RPM 516 LB-FT @ 3,500-5,000 RPM
0-60 mph Auto: 5.1 sec Manual: 5.5 sec Auto: 4.8 sec Manual: 5.3 sec AWD: 4.9 sec 3.9 sec 3.5 sec
limited 161 mph 171 mph 186 mph 200 MPH

How the interior of the F-Type will evolve is still a mystery. The video we mentioned before shows that the cockpit topography will stay the same, although we also expect Jaguar to fit the F-Type with some sort of digital instrument cluster that would add a more modern twist to the British sports car’s ethos.

Car looks much better.

I hate that wing, the front is molded into the bodywork so no air can go under it, but from the back it looks like a traditional wing ... so faux wing ding. A neighbor has it on his and it looks very cheap in real life.
