Jaguar F-Pace

The Jaguar F-Pace is available with one of three different engines, two of which give the Jaguar excellent acceleration and one of which provides the Jaguar with surprising fuel economy. For those looking to save on gasoline, the F-Pace is available with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine. Like most diesel engines, it combines a somewhat middling power output with a torque figure that may cause a double take. Horsepower is rated at 180, while torque is rated at 317 lb-ft.

The base gasoline engine is a 3.0L Supercharged V6, rated at 340 horsepower, with power sent to all-four wheels. Acceleration with this engine is on par with most sports cars, with 60 mph achieved in a claimed 5.4 seconds. For some though, that won't be enough and for those buyers, Jaguar offers a more powerful version of their 3.0L Supercharged V6 making 380 horsepower. 0-60 mph comes up in 5.1 seconds for the more powerful Jaguar F-Pace. All engines available on the F-Pace send power to all-four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The Jaguar F-Pace is available in six different trims, base F-Pace, Premium, Prestige, R-Sport, S and First Edition.

The base F-Pace comes with 18-inch alloy wheels a 380-watt, 11-speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, speed sensitive volume control, dual-zone climate control, a sliding panoramic roof, a rear power liftgate, powered front seats and LED daytime running lamps.

The Premium trim adds 19-inch alloy wheels, a memory system for the front seats and mirrors, an auto dimming rearview mirror and powered outside mirrors, a rearview camera and an automatic garage door opener.

The Prestige edition adds Taurus Leather seats that are heated in front and have more adjustability than those on lower models, a heated steering wheel, Xenon headlights, a navigation system, better interior lighting, parking sensors and keyless entry.

The R-Sport adds 20-inch wheels, an R-Sport body kit, additional exterior chrome around the grill and side vents, adaptive, intelligent high beams, 14-way power adjustable front seats with additional bolstering to keep drivers in place during high G cornering maneuvers, a lane keep assist function, a blind spot monitoring system, SiriusXM satellite radio and front fog lamps.

The F-Pace S is the only trim level available with the most powerful engine. It includes its own unique body kit and red painted brake calipers, along with most of the kit that comes standard on the R-Sport. However, it also includes adaptive suspension to further improve handling.

The 2017 only First edition includes just about every bell and whistle available on the F-Pace. That means it rides on 22-inch wheels and features a heads-up display, an 825-watt stereo, a surround camera system, a park assist function, 4-zone climate control, reclining, heated rear seats and unique interior trim.

It's not shocking, really, that driving the Jaguar F-Pace SVR through the French Alps puts a stupid grin on my face. Performance SUVs are in no short supply these days, and they're all incredibly entertaining.

Jaguar lovingly refers to the F-Pace SVR as the "magnificent beast," and it's easy to see why. With its excellent blend of muscle, agility and style, not to mention its useful utility, the F-Pace SVR is an incredible performance all-rounder.

A beastly performer

The first step in morphing a regular F-Pace SUV into a proper SVR happens under the hood. Jaguar Land Rover's familiar 5.0-liter supercharged V8 is shoehorned in, good for 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. The ZF-sourced, eight-speed automatic transmission has revised shift mapping, and routes power to all four wheels. The EPA says this SUV should return 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 mpg highway, but you weren't exactly expecting stellar fuel economy from a 550-horsepower SUV, now were you?
