2015 NAIAS: Jaguar announced F-Pace crossover, will reveal it later this year

Article by Christian A., on January 11, 2015

We already knew that Jaguar was working hard on crossover and today, the new vehicle also received a name: it will be called the F-Pace. Clearly inspired by the C-X17 sports crossover concept, the new Jaguar F-Pace will take on vehicles such as the Audi Q5, Porsche Macan and the BMW X3.

As you can see, the F-Pace will face a tough segment, but we expect to see an interesting vehicle because Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum says that it will be company’s family sports car. In addition, Jaguar Land Rover global sales director Andy Goss said that the F-Pace will become one of the most innovative Jaguars they have ever developed.

According to the British manufacturer, the F-Pace will be introduced later this year, but not too many details were shared. We do know that it will use Jaguar’s new lightweight aluminum platform used also by the XE midsized sedan and it is expected to be built on the same line as the XE at company’s factory located in Solihull, England.

The new F-Pace will arrive with the same engines found on the XE, which means that we will see the 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic gearbox.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged direct injection petrol engine bolted to an 8-speed automatic transmission developed by ZF will be available too. A sporty version will use the 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque.

We don’t expect Jaguar to offer the 5.0-liter supercharged petrol engine that generates over 500 hp, but it will be a big surprise if we see it.
