Jaguar showed us Tuesday what we’ve seen mostly already — the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace fully undressed — and clued us into all the juicy details.

The company’s mid-sized crossover will start from $40,990 plus $995 destination, at some point, but will go on sale next year with a duo of potent V-6 engines in the U.S. that will likely start closer to $45,000 at launch. When the car goes on sale in Spring 2016, a 340-horsepower supercharged V-6 and a 380-horsepower supercharged V-6 will be our only options stateside. Both mills will be mated to all-wheel drive and a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. A 2-liter, I-4 diesel that produces 180 horsepower will arrive in the States later in 2016.

And then Jaguar took the car on a giant-sized Hot Wheels track. Well played.

Jag_FPACE_Power_Loop_140915_01Jaguar outlined the F-Pace’s technology and packages that include autonomous braking, a 10-inch infotainment display and 22-inch wheels. The automaker also announced a “First Edition” package that would include features from the C-X17 concept, including houndstooth interior touches. (Why don’t more automakers do this?)

According to Jaguar, the 380-horsepower V-6 will launch the F-Pace to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, while the less-potent, 360-horsepower V-6 managing the same run in 5.4 seconds. (If you’re wondering, the diesel does it in just over 8 seconds.) Jaguar didn’t announce fuel economy estimates with any of its engines.

The F-Pace will come standard with an 8-inch touchscreen entertainment system (the larger 10-inch version will be an option) that can be upgradable in the future, Jaguar said. The 10-inch version will come standard with a solid-state internal hard drive that could make navigation and search functions faster.

Jaguar’s crossover will have 8.4 inches of ground clearance if you’re thinking about ever taking those 22-inch shoes off road (you’re not). Jaguar also announced that the F-Pace sports 25.5 degree and 25.7 degree approach and departure angles, respectively.

A suite of safety features including traffic sign recognition, blind-spot monitoring, cross path detection and autonomous emergency braking will be available on the F-Pace. The car’s cameras can also detect speed limits and adjust “maximum speed limits” for the driver if engaged.

The F-Pace will also sport a low-speed cruise control for off-roading — similar to systems used by Toyota and Jeep — if you’re into that sort of stuff.

Jaguar said the V-6 F-Pace will start at $42,390 plus $995 destination, and the more potent F-Pace S will start at $56,700 plus destination.

    Dude 360 is plenty of HP for a car this size. Don’t need no 380. Also, consider it’s LESS expensive than a GLA!

    I really hate the GLA.

      This makes the GLA look ridiculous, but that doesn’t take much at all.

      Well, not exactly, last I checked, $32k is still less than $42k. Until we can build and price one, who knows what the value proposition is compared to a loaded press fleet special.

        With equipment, it’s $50,000 for the GLA. I bet this comes with more as standard, and let’s not forget the standard V6 as well. That counts for something.

          “With equipment, it’s $50,000 for the GLA. I bet this comes with more as standard, and let’s not forget the standard V6 as well. That counts for something.”

          It comes with a standard 4-cyl diesel that drags you to 60mph in 8.2 seconds.

          I’m not sure why you think this vehicle comes with more standard than any other. It quickly rises to about $55K and can top 70K if you go crazy.

          If you want to play the options for $$ game, the MKC might be the one to beat. It comes pretty darn well optioned at the price of a base F-pace and the MKC typically goes for less than retail.

          Don’t get me wrong. I think the F-pace is interesting and I think it has a very good chance at being competitive. It certainly appears to have a lot more going for it than it’s entry level Land Rover brothers. I’m curious to see how well it reviews.

      More than that, it also makes JLR’s own Range Rover Evoque look silly.

    Another crossover. *yawn*

    Stoooopiiddd. Not only because its another fake suv, but moreso because it now competes with LRs in the same showroom.

    Here’s a thought Jaguar, make some new cars which don’t suck. LR has got things covered on their end.

      It certainly will be a lease-only proposition due to depreciation and reliability. I do like how it looks though, especially as opposed to an Evoque, or the POS new Discovery Sport Poverty Edition.

    • 0 avatar

      Not sure how much it will compete, actually. It doesn’t threaten the RR and RRS at all, and it doesn’t compete with the LR4. Plus, it has a very different aesthetic than Land Rover. If anything, I think all it will do is draw more people than before into the showroom.

        I can’t tell what the driveline will be nor can I determine which platform it will use. However LR offers the Ranger Rover Sport which is a variant of D7U and the new Discovery Sport (D8) which is the new Freelander (a name which was retired). This looks about the size of the Discovery Sport although it may be using a different platform and not technically be a clone.

        http://ae-plus.com/features/land-rover-discovery-sport-packaging

        I agree it has a different aesthetic, but a proper replacement for DEW98 would reach a wider audience considering you can get this sort of thing from LR on the other side of the showroom.

          Hehe I saw an LR3 yesterday, and the only light it had working on the back was the CHMSL.

          The woman driver also couldn’t manage to pay attention long enough to note the light had been green for 5 seconds.

          BEEEP.

          You can tell by the proportions that the F-Pace is definitely longitude-engined.

          The Discovery Sport uses the same transverse-engined Ford EUCD-derived platform as the Range Rover Evoque, so it’s definitely not that platform. It’s probably not on a platform with the Range Rover Sport (which itself is shared with the big Range Rover), either.

          The XE and new XF share an all-new longitude-engined platform (replacing the ancient DEW98 structure that underpins the current XF). I would guess that the F-Pace uses that structure.

            You’re probably right but of course Mazda uses a long hood for its proportions but is not RWD.

          • 0 avatar
            Kyree S. Williams

            Well, yes, but Mazda has the wheels pushed further back and more front-overhang, which you traditionally see on FWD cars. There’s a chance it’s transverse-engined and therefore FWD based, but I doubt it. This one looks RWD to me.

            I hate to say it, but I’ve become a bit of a RWD snob when it comes to luxury cars. It looks decently-priced as a RWD car to me (especially compared to the FWD Evoque), but if I find out it’s FWD, I’m not going to be interested anymore.

            I like RWD too, I feel proper cars come with it and more the commuter type should use transverse FWD.

      The Jag crossover won’t likely get cross shopped with LR – They might come from the same company, but they couldn’t look any more different.

      I’ve always assumed that a lot of the reason for this vehicle is that there are a lot of Jaguar dealers who do not carry Land Rover, either in the same building or within the same company.

      Which means there was a lot of screaming about completely missing out on the main growth market in vehicles today.

      I know in the Richmond, VA area, Jaguar and Land Rover are carried by two completely different dealerships – both of whose franchises go back to well before the Tata buyout. For most of their history, the only thin that Jaguar and Land Rover had in common is that they were both British.

    Interesting they show it in RHD and also Celsius. Guess this is the JDM model.

      The Brits have gone metric, haven’t they?

        CoreyDL

        I thought it was sort of a mixed bag with them – stone for weight etc, yet they use Fahrenheit and MPH. The speed limit is “seventy” as they say on Top Gear lots.

      or the UK – they are technically metric, except for distances (and by extension MPH). Celsius use is common

        I believe most Canadians know both metric and imperial. And Canadians in Korea told me you never tell anyone your height in anything but feet and inches.

          The metric system is a scam based on erroneous principles and foisted on the Canadian public.

          The original base measurements (distance to the sun) were incorrect.

          Stating that using 10 as their base makes it easier is also incorrect as 12 is the lowest number that can be evenly divided by both odd and even numbers.

          Their measurement sizing (cm’s and mm;s) are too small to picture.

          All existing infrastucture and therefore construction in Canada was/is done using the Imperial System. Therefore Imperial cannot ever fully be replaced.

          Tire sizing is still metric.

          And yes the Police and all sports teams still use Imperial when releasing information.

          I truly believe all of the above. However, now I have to go and yell at a cloud.

      It wouldn’t be JDM at any rate, because the car is not domestic to Japan. JDM typically refers to a Japanese car (or a version of it) sold in Japan, like the Nissan GT-R.

    If I can get a roll of that houndstooth leather in a dark color, I’ll reupholster the seats of my 300zx. :) As for the rest of the car, interior looks nice enough, exterior is handsome but generic CUV, with Jaguar grille, headlamps and taillights. Should be popular if lease pricing is good. Don’t understand why the two engine choices are so similar. Will typical customer really care about 5.1 vs 5.4 seconds for 0-60? I could understand if one was a turbo-4, but the are both supercharged V6, I’ve read elsewhere they are same engine with different calibration. I suspect the extra hp will be used to justify a fat markup for the higher trim level.

      The current J/LR V6 is literally the latest AJV8 engine block, minus two pistons and with some balancing action to make a 90-degree V6 actually work. J/LR’s current four-cylinder is a Ford EcoBoost. Apparently, they’ve come up with a new line of engines called Ingenium, which will at least spawn a four-cylinder and an inline-six (which is great, since straight-six engines have long been a part of Jaguar’s history). The four-cylinder engine should debut on the XE and possibly the new XF. And the I6 would eventually make its way to this car, as Jaguar phases out the V6.

    I like it a lot, I will probably buy one. Jaguar is in the game now.

    How short our time frames are. In the time since my 08, gas sucking MDX was bought, I’ve seen gas at 2.50, then spike to 4.70, then back to 4 then down now to 3.

    My diesel car has seen diesel from 4.80 to the current 2.65.

    Don’t buy a huge truck, it will change.

    I like the car, but I REALLY like that dash area with the radio/hvac controls. It looks like something from TRON. Honestly one of the best radio/hvac control centers I have ever seen.

    Bravo to Jag for using a colored interior! I think car interior colors have gotten far too bland, this is a step in the right direction without being too zany.
