Jaguar F-type in 2023

Review, specs, and pricing for the 2023 Jaguar F-type from cars and Jaguar

2023 F-type is equipped with a thunderous engine, a stunning exterior, and a ton of driving character—everything you'd expect from a Jaguar sports vehicle

It used to be offered with a turbo-four or a supercharged V-6, but currently, there is just a supercharged V-8 with a choice of 444 or 575 horsepower. The Porsche 718 and Chevy Corvette, two mid-engine sports cars with which the front-engine F-type competes, feel more agile than the hefty, heavy Jag.

 Additionally, the inside is beginning to appear old and provides little room for guests or other goods. You'll be delighted to be seen in this stunning piece of automotive sculpture, though, whether you go for the coupe or the convertible.

What has changed for 2023?

Jaguar discontinued its four- and six-cylinder engine options in 2022, however, the V-8-only F-type remains on the market unmodified into 2023.

Cost and Which One to Purchase

The 575-horsepower V-8 engine in the F-type R is alluring, but the P450's V-8 sounds just as nice and still has plenty of power. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the F-type, while all-wheel drive is an option on the P450 and standard on the R. 

The chic coupe is our favorite model, but if you prefer the feeling of the wind in your hair, the convertible is also a great option. Make ours British Racing Green with tan leather from among the many colors and interior finishes that are offered.

Performance - Engine, Transmission, and Other

Jaguar has adopted the opposite strategy and currently only sells the F-type with an antiquated supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, while many sports vehicles have switched to reduced turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines. 

It generates 444 horsepower in the P450 variant and 575 horsepower in the powerful R configuration. Both variants provide a fantastic aural experience with lots of pops, snaps, and crackles emanating from the exhaust. 

The F-type R reached 60 mph in our tests in 3.5 seconds. Although that is speedy, a similar Corvette or Porsche 718 is faster. 

The F-type has interesting handling, strong steering, and a generally pleasant ride, but if you want to race it or take it on furious backroad excursions, its reflexes won't be as quick as rivals with more intense sports car performance.

Fuel efficiency and actual MPG

The EPA has not yet released the official ratings for the 2023 F-type, but we don't expect them to differ significantly from those for the 2022 model. 

This implies that all-wheel-drive P450 and R variants are rated at 18 MPG combined, while rear-wheel-drive P450 cars will continue to provide 19 MPG combined. 

The F-type outperformed its EPA rating in our real-world 75 mph highway fuel-economy test of a 2021 R coupe, averaging 27 MPG, beating its highway estimate by 3 MPG. Visit the EPA website for additional details regarding the F-fuel type's efficiency.

Cargo, Comfort, and the Interior

The driver-focused cockpit of 2023 F-type is made of an intriguing combination of materials, including stitching, faux-suede accents, and chrome trim. 

Additionally, there are many alternatives for finer headliners, center-console trims, and additional gloss-black components. Upgraded 12-way power performance seats with different leather or suede upholstery choices are available for the six-way power sport seats that come standard. 

Both the coupe and the convertible have a small interior for the driver and passenger, and the trunk of the convertible is absurdly tiny.

Connectivity and Information

Every F-type is equipped with a 10.0-inch touchscreen that runs the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system from the manufacturer. 

The system comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features. The use of a Wi-Fi hotspot, a premium surround-sound audio system, and wireless phone charging are all options.

Features for Driver Assistance and Safety

Many driver-assistance features are included on the F-type, but we'd suggest choosing the independent blind-spot monitoring option. 

Visit the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for additional details regarding the results of the F-crash type tests. Important safety elements include:

  • Automated emergency braking as standard and forward collision warning.

  • Lane-keeping assistance and the common lane-departure warning.

  • Available rear cross-traffic warning and blind-spot monitoring.

Coverage for Warranties and Maintenance

Jaguar offers powertrain and limited warranties that are competitive with those offered by BMW and Audi, two other luxury brands. With its industry-leading free planned maintenance package, the British manufacturer surpasses both competitors.

  • Five years or 60,000 miles are covered by the limited warranty.

  • After five years or 60,000 miles, the powertrain warranty expires.

  • For five years or 60,000 miles, free maintenance is covered.
