The E-Pace is the third Jaguar model to get the limited-edition Checkered Flag treatment.
To celebrate 70 years of the company making sporty models starting with the XK120, Jaguar launched a new Checkered Flag edition of the F-Type sports car. A Checkered Flag Edition of the F-Pace performance SUV followed back in January this year, and now it's the E-Pace's turn to get the upgrades.
Joining the 2020 model year lineup, the Jaguar E-Pace Checkered Flag Edition is distinguished by its body-colored front and rear bumpers, twin tailpipes and LED headlamps with signature J-blade daytime running lights, as well as a black exterior pack. Other exterior enhancements include "Checkered Flag" side badges and 19-inch satin dark grey wheels, while convenience features include a powered tailgate and keyless entry.
Three colors are available for the Jaguar E-Pace Checkered Flag Limited Edition: Photon Red, which is exclusive to the limited edition SUV, Corris Grey and Yulong White.
Inside, there's prominent 'Checkered Flag' branded treadplates and an Ebony Grained Leather interior with red stitching. As standard, the limited edition E-Pace comes with 10-way heated front seats, a fixed panoramic roof and a 12.3-inch display, along with a soft grain leather sport steering wheel, black gearshift paddles and an Ebony Morzine headliner.
Like the regular model, the E-Pace Checkered Flag Edition is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder gasoline engine that produces 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is offered as standard.
All E-Pace models also include Jaguar's self-learning driver recognition system learns the driver's habits over time and acts accordingly, such as automatically adjusting the seat, climate and infotainment. Jaguar's optional Adaptive Dynamics also improves the handling response, body control, and ride quality. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also comes as standard across the entire 2020 E-Pace lineup. Pricing for the 2020 Jaguar E-Pace starts at $39,950.
