2021 Jaguar E-Pace

The Jaguar E-Pace (which is not the electric one, that’s the I-Pace) gets a refresh for 2021.

Yeah, that’s right. It’s another mild refresh story!

It’s the time of year that model changeover begins in earnest, and there’s been no auto shows since February, so instead of a slew of these stories hitting during the various shows, they’re trickling out, likely right up until the end of the calendar year. Especially since the pandemic shuttered production back in the spring. Only just now are 2021 MY test vehicles hitting my local press fleet, so bear with us.

We’ll be writing and you’ll be reading about refreshes for the 2021 (and in some cases, 2022, model year) a lot between now and the time this dreadful year gets put in the rearview.

Ahem. Back to Jag. The 2021 E-Pace gets redone bumpers, LED headlights, LED taillights, a new grille, a roofline that is meant to evoke the F-Type sports car, available black exterior trim bits and accents, new interior features, upgraded infotainment, and updated interior design.

The new cabin includes an 11.4-inch curved infotainment screen, Jaguar’s Pivi Pro infotainment system, new soft-touch areas, and a new filtration system for the optional cabin-air ionization technology.

There’s some performance updates worth noting, as well. A mild-hybrid setup pushes the horsepower output on 300 Sport models to 296. New engine mounts are claimed to improve throttle response, and the point where the front suspension attaches to the chassis is stiffened, which Jag says will result in a more compliant ride. The company also claims overall NVH reductions.

An in-mirror camera for the rearview mirror is now available.

The E-Pace is now considered the entry level crossover/SUV for Jaguar, with base pricing starting at $40,995 for the P250 AWD, $46,095 for the P250 SE, and $49,995 for the 300 Sport. Add $1,050 for destination and delivery.

    Okay. And what it does with knife? Sorry, but knife is not mentioned anywhere in article. If E-Pace is Tesla killer it better get AK-47.

    The headline got my hopes up.

    It looks slightly better than the Kia Sportage styling of the original but still not up to Jaguar standards. The interior looks like what you get in a Land Rover, which I’m guessing is what most people end up buying instead because despite being a CUV E-Pace sales aren’t very good.

    The interiors in Jaguars are incredibly nice.

    Pity the car wont ever work if you bought one.

    I’m a big British/Jag fan (have an XKR, E-type and LR3), but the crossovers do nothing for me as they seem about as dull as any other. Until this article I didn’t know the difference between an I-Pace and E-Pace. As someone above said when you’re a Jag person and want a crossover, seems like a Land Rover would be the better choice. I’m “only” 42 but love the traditional Jags (round lights, wood, curves, V-8, etc). Perhaps in the minority.

      “when you’re a Jag person and want a crossover, seems like a Land Rover would be the better choice”

      Exactly, but let’s compete internally instead with the same product. That’s what great mfgs like GM do, isn’t it? /s

    Wow…the area around the driver looks VERY cramped.

    Jaguar has lost its brand DNA. Where is the sumptuous interior filled with vast amounts of wood and leather that was always a Jaguar hallmark? THAT interior could be from any CUV currently on the market. Replace all that pleather looking light grey leather on the dash and door panels with a contemporary matte finish open pore wood and then you would have something special. That’s what used to make a Jaguar a Jaguar.

    Spotted a red, original e-pace and thought it looked outstandingly fine. When I made out the “e-pace” badge, I bounded up like a puppy on a stranger. Was this a second offering on Jaguar’s new electric drive train? Gosh. It’s a cracker.

    Then I got round the back and saw two carbon caked trumpets still dribbling ochre snoz and my impression changed from fabulous wedding guest, to drunken buffoon with tuxedo crotch stain.

    If I’m having these new thoughts, there must be a lot of other people starting to think the same way.
