Jaguar Translates the Brand’s Essence from Car to Crossover with the 2017 F-Pace
Though Jaguar is one of the last brands to release an SUV, the Jaguar F-Pace proves, once again, the brand’s creativity and originality.
It isn’t easy to translate the essence of a car to crossover SUV, but Jaguar rose to the challenge and exceeded expectations. In fact, Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum claims that it’s the toughest job his team has ever had to tackle, but the outcome was well worth the sweat and frustration. After a few setbacks and redesigns, the F-Pace was introduced combining the lively face of Jaguar’s sedans with the athletic rear fenders of the F-Type, and a sleek roofline that should negate the need for any alternative coupe-style option to be offered. The Jaguar F-Pace is priced like a compact luxury SUV, but is built more like a mid-size with ample cargo room.

The new Jaguar F-Pace offers as much in style as it does in performance. The exterior of the F-Pace turns heads. It was visually inspired by the F-Type giving it the body of a sports car, but the heart of an SUV. From the hood bulge in front to the pronounced rear haunches, Jaguar did a fantastic job reinventing the F-Type’s aggressive and athletic appearance for an SUV. As for the interior, the F-Pace comes fully loaded with multi zone climate control, heated seats, an advanced multimedia infotainment system, and much more.
Yet, performance is where Jaguar’s true genius comes into play. Offering three different engine options, the F-Pace aims to please. The standard option is a fuel-efficient 4-cylinder diesel engine expected to receive nearly 40 mpg. However, the other two more powerful options have received greater appreciation. These options include a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with 340 hp, and a supercharged version of this for offering 380 hp for a more Jaguar-like experience. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and All Wheel Drive enabling precise handling that will encourage you to take the winding scenic route when you have the time.
