    Jaguar will release a major update for the F-Type next year, which will have significant styling alterations including a dramatic overhaul of the front end with a reshaped bonnet and slim headlights relocated further down the front fascia.  A redesigned grille  will take centre stage on the all-new front of Jaguar’s Porsche 911 rival, while at the back, a new tail-light design with a squared-off rear profile mimicking the recently facelifted XE saloon is expected to be seen. This is the first major styling revision since the F-Type was launched in 2013.

    On the inside, it’s expected that much of the more advanced technology and infotainment features from the I-Pace and the 2019 XE will make its way onto the updated F-Type. That means new digital dials, a larger and more feature-laden touchscreen, and substantial upgrades to the materials.

    Jaguar Land Rover is now phasing out the long-used supercharged V6 in favour of a new turbocharged and hybridised straight-six, and the F-Type will benefit from this more efficient powertrain. The turbocharged four-cylinder and supercharged V8 engines should be carried over to the new car with limited changes.

    What remains unclear is whether the new F-Type will retain a manual option that is available in some markets. However, we could see the revised F-Type revealed before the year is out, with an on-sale date in the first few months of 2020 for the international markets.
