Sleek, sexy redesigned 2021 Jaguar F-TYPE big on power, tech
Jaguar has showed off its completely redesigned 2021 F-Type for the first time, revealing a hot redo of the two-seater that is loaded with modern technology and hasn't lost its robust powertrain offerings.
For the exterior, Jaguar is quick to point out that its designers made the model more "focused and assertive." That starts at the nose where slim LED headlights look to pierce the air as they sit below the car's clamshell hood. The front bumper and grille are enlarged over the previous generation giving the car a more powerful stance as the car's classically athletic porportions play out moving toward the rear.

"Enhanced wheel designs, and a fresh look for the side-vent using the Jaguar 'Leaper' detail add to the F-TYPE's modernity," said Adam Hatton, Exterior Design Director, Jaguar. "The powerful rear design has new slim, elegant lamps incorporating latest LED technology and our Jaguar 'Chicane' rear signature graphic with intricate monogram pattern. And everywhere you look, you'll find relentless attention to detail –each is a work of art in itself."
The 2021 F-Type is available in 16 paint jobs: Ligurian Black, Ethereal Silver, Ionian Silver, Sunset Gold, Petrolix Blue, Velocity Blue, Tourmaline Brown, Desire, Sanguinello Orange, Atacama Orange, Sorrento Yellow, Constellation, Icy White, Flux Grey, Malachite Green and Amethyst.
