2019 Jaguar F-Type Gains Larger Infotainment System And Standard Torque Vectoring

The Jaguar F-Type is entering the 2019 model year with a host of minor changes.

Car and Driver reports the updated model will hit U.S. showrooms in May with prices starting at $61,745. That’s a modest increase of $850 but it will get drivers behind the wheel of the entry-level coupe which has been renamed the P300.

Despite sporting a new designation, the model continues to be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 296 hp (220 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque. It is paired exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This setup enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds.

Next up is the F-Type P340 which starts at $69,845. It features a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 producing 340 hp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (449 Nm) of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard but an automatic gearbox is available for an additional $1,300.

Moving up the ladder is the F-Type P380 which replaces the F-Type S. It features a familiar supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 380 hp (283 kW) and 339 lb-ft (459 Nm) of torque.

The F-Type 400 Sport has been dropped so the next model is the F-Type R which has a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 developing 550 hp (410 kW) and 502 lb-ft (679 Nm) of torque. The $101,745 model has an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables it to run from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds before topping out at 186 mph (299 km/h).

Finally, the range-topping F-Type SVR retails for $123,745. It rewards buyers with an even more powerful V8 engine producing 575 hp (428 kW) and 516 lb-ft (698 Nm) of torque. Thanks to the extra power, the coupe rockets from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds before hitting the magic 200 mph (321 km/h) mark.

Besides the minor name changes, all F-Type reportedly receive a standard torque vectoring system and a larger infotainment system with a 10-inch display. Drivers will also find a frameless rearview mirror and a new “SVO Premium Palette” with 18 colors.

    F Type P300, P340, and P380 sound so stupid. I expect that type of naming on a Tesla. *Hint *Hint. Also, the R model is most likely getting dropped next so all you’ll have is the three lower models and the SVR.

    • I agree the naming is stupid. It’s starting to be like Japanese goods. Or VW ag powertrain naming. People surely rather say I have an F-type V6 S than I have an F-type P380.

    So will they finally support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto?

    • probably not, gets the latest from JLR. Bigger screen, better graphics and faster. That’s it.

    Beauty as always but I think pipe style exhausts suit this cars style better, unimprovably perfectly in fact.

    This car is still really great looking, but getting long in tooth, especially for the interior. It needs the new tech and infotainment. This system is not up to date at all.
