The Jaguar F-PACE is a performance SÚV designed and engineered to offer the agility, responsiveness and refinement that all Jaguars are renowned for, together with outstanding dynamics and everyday versatility.
Developed using Jaguar's Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the F-PACE combines purity of line, surface and proportion with F-TYPE-inspired features such as powerful rear haunches, fender vents and distinctive tail light graphics.
The bold front grille and the muscular bonnet hint at the performance potential of engines like the 380PS supercharged V6 while elements such as slender full-LED headlights, forged 22-inch wheels and short front overhang carry the design vision of the C-X17 concept through to production.
The F-PACE seats five occupants in absolute comfort. The interior is a perfect blend of premium materials and finishes, exquisite detailing, luxuries such as heated, electrically reclining rear seats, and a 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system fitted as standard.
The attention to detail continues with the frameless rear view mirror, illuminated metal treadplates with Jaguar script, bright metal pedals, premium carpet mats, suedecloth headlining, chrome seat switches on the 10-way adjustable seats and optional carbon fibre door finishes.
F-PACE's design credentials were underlined when the performance SÚV became only the second vehicle to claim a historic double by winning both the World Car Design of the Year and World Car of the Year trophies at the 2017 World Car Awards.
'By remaining absolutely true to our design principles the F-PACE is immediately recognisable as a Jaguar. It offers all of the interior space you would expect – and more – but because of our disciplined approach to surfaces, proportions, and purity of line, we have designed what I consider to be the most balanced, most attractive vehicle in its class.'
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar
Jaguar Land Rover's Lightweight Aluminium Architecture gave the design and engineering teams the ideal starting point. It was created from the outset as a modular structure, so the wheels can be positioned exactly where they are needed to deliver the proportions, dynamics, and practicality essential for a performance SÚV.
The wheelbase and track are not shared with any other Jaguar. At 4,731mm (4,737mm for SVR) long and with a 2,874mm wheelbase, the F-PACE delivers Jaguar's characteristically sleek profile and short front overhang, together with an exceptionally spacious interior.
Rear knee-room is class-leading and the luggage compartment volume is an astonishing 650-litres†.
The light, stiff body structure comprises 80 per cent aluminium, and is the only aluminium-intensive monocoque in the segment. Additional weight savings come from the composite tailgate and magnesium for parts such as the cross-car beam.
As a result, the rear-wheel drive 163PS diesel manual transmission model weighs from 1,760kg and achieves CO2 emissions of 147g/km* (NEDC Equivalent Combined cycle). With the 380PS supercharged V6 petrol engine from the F-TYPE under its sculpted aluminium bonnet, the F-PACE can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 5.5 seconds (0-60mph in 5.1 seconds) before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph.
The body's high torsional stiffness enables the F-TYPE-derived double wishbone front suspension and sophisticated Integral Link rear suspension to perform even better. Together with Torque Vectoring and an Electric Power Assisted Steering system as standard, to give the best possible feel and response, the F-PACE delivers the perfect balance of ride and handling.
Even the entry-level model benefits from monotube dampers as standard, but for even better ride and handling the electronically-controlled Adaptive Dynamics system measures body and wheel movement 100 and 500 times a second respectively, ensuring optimum damping forces in all conditions.
For the most enthusiastic drivers the F-PACE delivers greater scope for customers to personalise the driving experience thanks to Configurable Dynamics. The system allows drivers to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preference by choosing Normal or Sports settings for the throttle response, gearbox and steering. The chosen combination is activated by engaging 'Dynamic' mode using the chequered flag button on the central console.
Adaptive Dynamics, modifies F-PACE's damper response to match the conditions and driving style. It analyses acceleration, cornering, throttle and brake pedal activity to optimise the suspension settings and maintain F-PACE's dynamism and comfort. When fitted alongside Configurable Dynamics, the driver is able to alter the damper setting based on their preference.
Úsing state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics simulations and applying lessons learnt from the XE and XF, the F-PACE has a drag coefficient as low as 0.34, helping to reduce fuel consumption and improve refinement. The vehicle is also engineered for exceptionally low lift with excellent lift balance front-to-rear, resulting in better steering feel and stability at higher speeds.
'This is a performance SÚV with outstanding dynamics yet also delivers a smooth, quiet ride. The
F-TYPE-inspired design combines dramatic looks with a spacious interior and an exceptionally large luggage compartment. Together with our infotainment system, our most advanced all-wheel drive system and an outstanding range of active safety technologies, the F-PACE makes every journey a better, more rewarding experience.'
Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar F-PACE
The F-PACE's torque on-demand All Wheel Drive (AWD) system is Jaguar's most sophisticated yet, and has the highest torque capacity. It features the advanced, in-house control system first developed for F-TYPE AWD: Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD). IDD preserves rear-wheel drive agility and handling characteristics but can seamlessly transfer torque to the front wheels to exploit the performance benefits of extra traction, on all surfaces and in difficult weather conditions.
Another world-class technology developed for adverse conditions is All Surface Progress Control (ASPC). To make the most of the available grip, ASPC automatically controls the throttle and the brakes, enabling the vehicle to pull away smoothly: the driver just has to steer. ASPC functions between 3.6km/h (2.2mph) and 30km/h (19mph), and the driver selects the desired speed using the cruise control switches. ASPC is compatible with rear- and all-wheel drive and vehicles with automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR), developed from Land Rover's patented, award-winning Terrain Response technology, makes the AWD system even more effective in challenging conditions. Integrated into JaguarDrive Control, AdSR identifies the type of surface and optimises the mapping of the powertrain, brake settings and Dynamic Stability Control system. First launched in the XF, AdSR has been enhanced by a third mode designed for deep snow and gravel.
For drivers facing similar challenges, but who want to retain control of the throttle pedal, Low-Friction Launch (LFL) is available. This function uses a very progressive throttle map, making the vehicle easier to control in slippery conditions.
The F-PACE has been engineered to satisfy the most stringent safety standards worldwide and received the full five-star safety rating from EÚRO NCAP with exceptional levels of occupant and pedestrian protection. The standard of active safety is just as high, thanks to a suite of advanced driver assistance systems. The stereo camera at the heart of the Emergency Braking system features a pedestrian detection function. The inclusion of Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, High-Speed Emergency Braking and other new safety technology for 2019 model year, enhances the Jaguar F-PACE's safety credentials further.
Key information such as vehicle speed and speed limits can be projected directly into the driver's line of sight by the optional laser Head-Úp Display. The high contrast colour images can also show cruise control settings and turn-by-turn navigation instructions.
Infotainment and connectivity is just as advanced with InControl technologies. The premium Touch Pro system is based around a 10-inch Touchscreen and comes as standard for 2019 model year. It features a powerful quad-core processor and runs on ultra-fast Ethernet. The incredibly responsive user interface is intuitive and provides sharp graphics. The navigation system, when fitted with Connected services, can save you time by learning your commute, offers true door-to-door guidance and can even advise others of your arrival time. Navigation can also be shown full-screen in the 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, when fitted.
Dual View screen technology is available on the F-PACE when specified with satellite navigation, CD/DVD player and optional Meridian sound system. The advanced screen technology allows the front passenger and driver to view different outputs using the same central touchscreen display.
The F-PACE also features Jaguar's advanced Activity Key. A waterproof, shockproof wristband with an integrated transponder, this segment-first, wearable technology supports active lifestyles because it allows the keyfob to be securely locked inside the vehicle – invaluable if you're going surfing, for example, or kayaking.
Locking the F-PACE using the Activity Key will disable any keyfobs left inside. The clever device works on the same RF frequencies as the other keys and is used to lock and unlock the vehicle by holding it in close proximity to the J of the Jaguar lettering on the tailgate. Activity Key has no battery, so you never have to worry about changing it.
