We're All-In On The Badass Jaguar F-Pace And You Should Be Too

Reveal / Comments

It looks good, packs power and seats five. What's not to love?

After a ton of teasing Jaguar has finally revealed its F-Pace SUV in full at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The luxury performance SUV market is fast-growing, and the F-Pace looks more than able to both compete and stand out in it. It packs a badass design inspired by the ultra-sexy F-Type, powerful engine options and an all-wheel drive system that should ensure a perfect balance between handling and hoonery. So, what makes Jaguar's new SUV so great and what do its performance figures look like? We thought you'd never ask.

The F-Type inspiration is seen specifically in the tail lights, fender vents and in its rear haunches. This gives the F-Pace an aggressively refined look, further highlighted by forged 22-inch wheels and a pseudo hood scoop. Inside the SUV seats five and sports a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment center and a wifi hotspot with support for eight devices. Another cool tech feature is a nifty wristband key lets you disable and lock your key fobs in the car, a useful feature for those with active lifestyles and folks who constantly lose their keys. At launch two 3.0-liter V6 engines will be offered: the first good for 340 horsepower and a supercharged version with 380 horses, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The top-tier V6 does 0 to 60 in just 5.1 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. A 180-horsepower diesel-four will be available late in 2016 as well. The engine power is aided by a lightweight design, with one third of the vehicle being made of aluminum. For handling there's a torque-on-demand AWD system, the same one found in the F-Type. It features a rear-wheel bias that swaps to a 50-50 torque split in just 165 milliseconds. Sales begin in spring 2016 and pricing starts at $41,985 for the diesel model, with the base V6 starting at $43,385 and the supercharged version coming in at $56,695. We expect big things from the F-Pace and can't wait to see more of it as we get closer to launch.
