The new 2018 Jaguar F-Pace is an all-new model that offers striking features thereby making it a standout in its class. In fact, it may be hard to ignore it on the road thanks not only to its pretty face but also its easy-to-drive personality, and impressive practicality. It can surprisingly venture off-road, too. Additional features it offers include an engaging driving quality, above-average ground clearance, spacious cargo and backseat space, a supercharged V6 engine, and a sharper handling and steering feel. Continue reading on for the latest news on its release date and price.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace Release Date & Price
The Jaguar F-Pace has already debuted on the market, however, its release date has been confirmed will take place sometime in the first half of 2018. Pricing has been announced, and Jaguar says the F-Pace MSRP starts from $40,990. Leasing is an option as well for those who’d want to sample its delicacy first before ordering one.
First things first, while the introduction above sounds awfully impressive, we have several gripes about the vehicle under review. For one, relative to similarly priced rivals, the gasoline engine sounds a bit less efficient. Again, the V6 engine may get tiresome in everyday driving experiences due to its boisterous exhaust, and lastly, the ride quality may feel a bit firm over broken pavement. Well, beyond the negative idiosyncrasies, Jaguar seems to have ticked most of the right buttons.
Quite so often, beauty and practicality seem to be mutually exclusive but with the F-Pace, Jaguar has proved the two can be worked out just as well. It is fun to drive, engaging, and offers a striking beauty that will culminate in many social media posts involving selfies. And to add to this immaculate features, Jaguar also went into great lengths to add an impressive ground clearance. The wheelbase, too, was boosted. The result of this is better off-roading experience, improved cargo and passenger space.
Driving dynamics were not left out of the equation. The same verve that drives Jaguar’s sedans and sport car’s was also roped in. Boasting of the same mechanical underpinnings that highlight both the XE/XF models and a bit of inspiration from the F-Type, the result is smooth and comfortable driving manners that are best-in-class. Furthermore, worthy of praise is its RWD driving architecture, impeccably composed suspension system, and an ultra-rigid structure. For some, however, the ride quality may be a bit firm.
Motivation beneath its hood is offered by a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine rated at 340 horsepower. It is available for all trims with the exception of the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace Firs Edition and S models. Jaguar says, this output is enough to fire up the F-Pace from 0-60 mph to 5.4 seconds. Fuel economy numbers stand at 20 mpg in combined city/highway cruising. Those looking for more power can opt for the F-Pace 20d AWD model that gets a turbo-diesel four-cylinder 2.0L engine good for 180 horsepower and 318 pounds-feet of torque. Similar to the BMW X3, it takes 8.2 seconds for a 0-60 mph run. Fuel economy ratings for the diesel-powered mill haven’t been released but jaguar estimates it to be in the 20+ mpg region.
