Jaguar F-Type Convertible 2020 - 2021
The updated F-Type will hit the market in 2020, most likely as a model in 2021.
The F-Type, released as a 2014 model, has almost completely retained its former appearance. The only changes were sporty thin headlights, redesigned hood and front panel, as well as more awkward taillights, in line with the design of the updated XE sedan. In terms of equipment upgrades, Jaguar has finally abandoned the V-6 engine in favor of an electrified installation, which in the Range Rover 2020 provides 355 horsepower and 495 Nm of torque.
It is a soft hybrid system that combines a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine and starter. Going back to the old V-6, replacing the engine could mean abandoning the manual transmission.

Jaguar has added a specially tuned suspension to the F-Type 2021 model year and removed the SVR variant from the lineup. There are four available versions of F-Type equipment: P300, First Edition, R-Dynamic, R.
