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

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.

Jaguar F-Pace SVR to be launched at the 2018 New York Auto Show

For quite some time now, we have been seeing the Jaguar F-Pace SVR being tested on the roads. We last saw it near the Nurburgring but this prototype was in a camouflaged suit even as it showed off its new performance credentials. Nevertheless, we will not have to wait too long until we see the prototype stripped off of its camouflage, and in person. Jaguar has officially announced the F-Pace SVR’s debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show.

If asked about the model, the automaker will say that the Jaguar F Pace SVR is currently the fastest and most powerful of its kind. This is because it had been equipped with a supercharged 5.0 liter V8 engine that works with a 10 speed automatic transmission.

This engine, when in the F-Pace SUV, is slightly detuned. But this can also be found in the F-Type SVR and carries out 567 horsepower (422 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. Suspension and brakes will get an upgrade, and we also expect a similar raucous exhaust note like that of the F-Type to be carried over as well.

Arden seeks to unleash the Jaguar F-Pace’s hidden powers

The already potent Jaguar F-Pace S trim with 380hp (283kW) on the hood gains a few more muscles courtesy of Arden Tuning from Germany. After doing its magical ritual on the F-Pace, the supercharged 3.0- liter V6 engine now produces up to 410 hp with a more handsome body to boot.

The German tuning house has recently announced its Jaguar F-Pace Arden AJ 25 tuning kit featuring an extensive lineup of aesthetic enhancements for both the SUV’s interior and exterior.

Customers can choose from the three power upgrades that are available starting with the 20d that gives the base model an extra 35 hp or equivalent to 26kW, providing the SUV a total output of 215hp (160kW) over the standard 180hp (134kW).

AC Schnitzer offers upgrade package for Jaguar F-Pace

German tuning shop AC Schnitzer is all well-known for tweaking aftermarket vehicles made by BMW and Mini as well as, to some extent, Land Rover. However, that doesn’t mean that this famed German tuner is limited to tuning such vehicle makes. As proof, it recently churned a vehicle from Land Rover’s sister brand, Jaguar.

However, AC Schnitzer’s latest creation is somewhat subdued when compared to its previous works. We are referring to a tweaked version of the Jaguar F-Pace, courtesy, of course, of AC Schnitzer. Nonetheless, the tweaks made on the Jaguar F-Pace are visually enticing as well as performance enhancing. After all the works were done, this F-Pace became the very first Jaguar that AC Schnitzer has tuned.

Up front, the most apparent changes include the installation of a new front fascia with a carbon fiber diffuser – a new aerodynamic component that could be availed on the "R-Sport," "S," "Pure," "Prestige," or "Portfolio" trims of the Jaguar F-Pace. This aerodynamic element on the front is matched on the rear with the addition of a new rear roof wing, thereby allowing the tweaked F-Pace to generate more downforce than its regular counterpart.

Jaguar is placing three new Ingenium engines on the F-Pace crossover, XF saloon and XE sedan for the 2018 model year. According to Jaguar’s recent announcement, the updates will also be including new equipment and advanced technology.

As stated, there will be a 236 hp 2.0-liter twin turbo four-cylinder diesel engine for the 2018 F-Pace, XF and XE. This is the first time for a Jaguar Land Rover engine to be equipped with twin turbochargers along with newly updated fuel injectors, crankshaft and pistons to boot.

In line with this, Jaguar also offers two 2.0-liter petrol powertrains with either 197 hp or 246 hp engine performance. The 197 hp 2.0 liter petrol by all means is more practical for the compact XE range as compared with the much bigger XF saloon model. Except for the F-Pace, both XF and XE will be offered with a 197 hp 2.0-liter new engine.
