575-HP Jaguar F-Pace SVR To Debut At New York 2018

SUV

This fast cat will need to outgun some German and Italian competition.

Although Jaguar Land Rover recently announced its intention to have electrified powertrains available on every model beginning in 2020, high-performance definitely won’t be sacrificed. Even its SUVs, such as the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We previously spotted test mules on the road, so we can fully confirm the vehicle’s existence. We also learned that Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) developed the SUV with upwards of 575 horsepower on tap.

According to Auto Express, the F-Pace SVR will officially debut next spring at the 2018 New York Auto Show. Its direct competition? The Porsche Macan Turbo, Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63. All heavy hitters. Not long after the F-Pace SVR’s debut, BMW will launch its first-ever X3 M, so Jaguar knows it needs to get this right the first time around. Fortunately, under the hood will be the formidable supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Expect a 0-62 mph time of around 4.2 seconds and a top speed in excess of 175 mph. Based on previous spy shots, we can see some subtle differences under the camo when compared to the standard F-Pace.

Notice the new front bumper with larger intakes and a revised exhaust system with four ports. Hey, the engine needs to breathe somehow. Our sources also told us that, aside from the exterior upgrades, the biggest difference between the SVR and non-SVR is the exhaust note. Jaguar has a proven history of creating some of the greatest exhaust notes ever, such as the F-Type SVR. We expect more of the same this time around as well. We’re confident the wait until next March will be well worth it.
