Jaguar F-TYPE now exclusively equipped with V8 engines.
Infotainment system and styling updates for the Jaguar I-PACE
No notable changes for E-PACE, F-PACE and XF.
It’s been a quiet year for Jaguar as it prepares to evolve into an electrified era. It’s also been a challenging one, having its fair share of production cuts and sales decreases through an aging product lineup.
There are new products in the pipeline, fully electric vehicles to be exact, but they aren’t scheduled to arrive before 2025. In the meantime, here’s what to expect from the Jaguar brand in 2022.
After receiving a refresh for the 2021 model year, the Jaguar F-TYPE growls into 2022 with powertrain changes. Once again offered as a coupe and a convertible, the F-TYPE is now sold exclusively with V8 engines, as the 296-horsepower turbo 2.0L inline-four and the 380-hp supercharged 3.0L V6 have bit the dust. The P450 and its 444-hp supercharged 5.0L V8 can be matched to rear-wheel or all-wheel drivetrains, while the F-TYPE R AWD is blessed with a 575-hp version of the V8 engine. The F-TYPE’s Pivi Pro infotainment system now integrates Amazon Alexa voice assistance, and this applies to all Jaguar models for 2022.
The midsize Jaguar XF also received revisions for 2021, and nothing major is happening with the midsize sports luxury sedan for 2022, aside from an appearance in the latest James Bond flick No Time to Die. The XF’s powertrain choices now include 246- and 296-horsepower versions of the brand’s turbocharged 2.0L four (named P250 and P300), matched to either RWD or AWD. However, in Canada, only the P300 variant with AWD is available.
During the 2021 calendar year, the Jaguar E-PACE gained some styling enhancements, a refreshed interior and a new infotainment system, among other things. No changes have been announced yet for the 2022 model, which should carry over both turbo 2.0L four-cylinder engines with 246 hp (P250) and 296 hp (300 Sport). All-wheel drive is standard.
Like the XF, the Jaguar F-PACE received a mid-cycle refresh in 2021 with minor design revisions, the company’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system with an 11.4-inch touchscreen, and a 12.3-inch driver instrument panel. A supercharged 3.0L inline-six (P340) with mild hybrid technology is offered, which delivers 335 horsepower, while a 246-hp turbo 2.0L four (P250) is also available. The F-PACE R-Dynamic S variant gets a turbocharged and electrically supercharged mild hybrid 3.0L six, generating 395 horsepower. There’s also the Jaguar F-PACE SVR with its supercharged 5.0L V8, generating 542 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
Lastly, the fully electric Jaguar I-PACE relies on a two-motor system producing 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, and thanks to its 90-kWh battery pack, driving range is rated at 234 miles in the U.S., 377 km in Canada. The I-PACE gets a new Pivi Pro infotainment system, in addition to enhanced over-the-air software update capability, an 11-kW on-board charger for quicker juice-ups as well as new paint colours and alloy wheel designs. Only the HSE trim level is available in Canada and the United States moving forward.
