Test Drive of the 2022 Jaguar F-Type in British Racing Green
Thursday on Sunrise LBK with Dave King and Tom Collins, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Tom to talk about his test drive of the week, recalls after a serious fire problem in some cars, as well as other auto industry news.
This week The Car Pro was test driving the 2022 Jaguar F-Type. Jerry started the discussion by saying that this model has been changed from previous versions, where now they only come with a V8 engine. The version that Jerry drove has 444 horses, and you can even get one with 575 horses, although he thinks that would be almost frightening, and says that even at 444 you get more power than you'd ever need because you can get up to 177 mph, and go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. Additionally, Reynolds says that the exhaust crackles back at you when you let off the accelerator. The 2022 Jaguar F-Type has a "British Racing Green" exterior color, a beautiful interior as you'd expect from a Jaguar, can come in a convertible version, sits low to the ground, has no back seat but still decent cargo room, and a window sticker price of $86,000.
All in all, a really great car. It's not for everybody, obviously, and I don't know that I'd want it as a daily driver, but you know, for a fun weekend car, if you had a lot of money, this thing is awesome.
The Car Pro also talked about some stories on his website carprousa.com. One story talks about his review of the previous week's Infiniti QX50. Another gives a warning on Hyundais and Kias which are getting recalled after a serious issue of them catching on fire, which could burn down houses. And finally, a story on oil that talks about oil changes, synthetic oil, and oil consumption.
