Jaguar Land Rover showcased the latest 2017 Jaguar F-PACE crossover model at the Motor Show held in Frankfurt, Germany, a few days ago.
The new F-PACE 2017 model comes in to heat up the market as far as modern crossovers are concerned, especially given the fact that it is the first SUV made by the car manufacturer. The new Jaguar SUV draws its inspiration from a previous concept known as C-X17 and for sure, many are expecting a lot from this first ever Jaguar SUV.
Jaguar F-PACE is meant to compete with luxury SUVs
As noted earlier, the introduction of the new mid-size Jaguar F-PACE crossover only serves as a stern warning to other makers of similar models. In fact, the competition in the industry is now set to heat up, with players such as Porsche Macan and other luxury competitors starting to fear for their lives.
There are also high chances that the new model might find itself pitted against one of the company’s own Land Rover models. However, the new model is just a test of what the company can do as far as making luxury SUVs is concerned. Many auto makers, and not just Jaguar, have been in the race of luring more customers to their brands with SUVs that deliver amazingly comfortable rides without compromising on the craftsmanship or even the fuel economy.
A glance at the features of the new Jaguar F-PACE SUV 2017 model
According to the auto manufacturer, the newly launched Jaguar F-PACE SUV 2017 model is still a Jaguar by design. On it, you will still find amazing proportions, pure surfaces, a dynamic stance as well as a beautiful sensuality. In a statement put forward by the director of Jaguar design, Ian Callum, he claims that the progressive and purposeful appearance of the new F-PACE model has greatly been influenced by the F-TYPE.
The powertrains of the F-PACE come in several options. There is a 6-cylinder supercharged 380hp 3-liter engine that can hit 60 a speed of 60 miles an hour in just 5.1 seconds. This engine option is also available on the F-TYPE sports car. The company revealed that another engine option, a 4-cylinder diesel engine, will be available at a later time. Potential buyers of the car will however have to wait until spring before they can get the car from showrooms. You will also find other options in the shape of 180hp 2-liter, 4-cylinder engines.
Jaguar designed the new F-PACE with aluminum architecture and for sure, this gives the car a road presence that is actually very premium. In addition, the Jaguar F-PACE uses high strength steel in most areas with an aim of delivering sharp handling. Inside the F-PACE you will come across a standard 8-inch infotainment system with touch-screen technology. If this is not enough for you, there is an upgrade of 10.2 inches for the display and this upgrade is equipped with a 1GB/s Ethernet.

Even though the company did not mention anything related to the fuel economy figures of the powertrain options available for the Jaguar F-PACE 2017 model, there is some news about the pricing of this new SUV. The base prices will range somewhere from $40,990 to around $56,700.
