British automaker Jaguar has just unveiled its latest 2021 F-Type, bringing subtle design upgrades to a model largely reminiscent of its 2020 predecessor.

According to Jaguar’s Exterior Design Director Adam Hatton, “F-TYPE has always had great proportions and stance, and our latest design is all about enhancing those key Jaguar values. Our aim was to make the car more contemporary, more purposeful, and even more dramatic.” This has been achieved through minor tweaks to the car’s aesthetic, including a larger grille, slimmer and more aggressive headlights, a revamped clamshell hood that accentuates the car’s length, and modified air intakes by the sides. Its rear lights have also been swapped out for the brand’s “Chicane” design taken from the fully-electric I-PACE.

Moving to the interior, much of its design has remained the same, but Jaguar has given the car some vital technological upgrades. The cockpit is now equipped with a 12-inch reconfigurable HD TFT instrument cluster featuring graphics designed specifically for the F-Type. Drivers can choose from three display themes, which include a full map option, but defaults to an iconinc large central tachometer. This new addition is then complemented by another 10-inch touchscreen acting as the car’s Touch Pro infotainment system, working in tandem with thee tactile rotary controllers, giving users a perfect balance of analog and digital controls.

As to its performance, Jaguar will be making the new F-Type in three tiers: a four cylinder, six cylinder, and eight cylinder option, respectively pushing out 296 horsepower, 380 horsepower, and 575 horsepower. All three come equipped with the standard eight-speed transmission with full manual control via either a SportShift gear selector or mounted paddles behind the steering wheel.

There’s no official release date or pricing information yet from Jaguar, so those interested should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.
