The 2021 Jaguar F-Type offers a truly driver-focused view of the world. It's in every aspect of the coupe, from the way the seats are configured to the technology at hand and the overall driving experience. There's a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a full array of standard and optional driver assistance features, and three powerful engine options. The 2021 Jaguar F-Type even has an active exhaust system, which is switchable either as an option or as standard.
