The Jaguar F-Pace has been growing like a baby on a special military supplementary diet over time. After adding a base 247-horsepower turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine in late 2017, the 2019 version brings around a whopping 550-horsepower. This is the F-Pace SVR, hitting 4.1-seconds from 0-60 mph, and a top speed of 176 mph derived from a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8.
Even before you step in for a test drive, you have to brace your adrenaline for one of the most exceptional experiences. With such specs, it is easy to see why the F-pace was an SUV of the Year finalist even though it was the first-ever SUV from an automaker beholden for producing sports cars, big grand tourers, and luxury sedans.
The new F-pace wears some of the tech we are commonly seeing around vehicles of this nature including active lane control, automatic emergency braking, and parking sensors. But you can have the optional adaptive cruise control system that gives you traffic sign recognition improvements and a steering-assist feature that helps keep the big bold machine centered in its lane.
It boasts of a cool 8.4 inches of ground clearance, making it a well-poised off-road animal, even where others would still beat it on this element. You will interact with a 10.0-inch touchscreen display which is now standard and dominates the center stack.
This one allows gesture controls, just in case the situation so demands or the magnificent seems intimidating. If your budget allows you can have your Jaguar F-Pace fitted with a digital cockpit display.
Jaguar has had its fights, but this is one is a machine that doesn’t sound too bad for 2019, especially of the market opens blessings on it. In 2019, the F-Pace starts at about $46,000 for the base trim, going all the way up to nearly $81,000 for its 550-hp V-8 SVR.
