The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is yet another impressive car model that took part in this year’s Auto Show in Frankfurt. The model is precisely a British sport utility SUV that will be very affordable once released for retail. This mid-size SUV can generally be described as aggressive, refined and responsive. It has better driving dynamics, a powerful drivetrain, and incorporates the most advanced technological features.
The outer body of the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is predominantly constructed out of aluminium and has a very bold and elegant appearance. Its dimensions go well with the XF and XE sedan models. In fact, the front end in these models is almost similar. It has a mesh grille and LED headlights. From the side view, the car is sleek and has very long vents. The side glass tapers steeply beginning from the falls of the front doors to the third light windows. The LED tail lamps sit high and come in a semi-circular shape. The user will choose between 18 inch an 22 inch wheels for movement. Inside the car, the cabin space is roomy and well utilized. The design can be described as elegant and chic like that in the XE and XF as well.
Wood trim, ambient lighting and aluminium are some of the materials that are used to furnish the interior. This car that can accommodate 5 adults has seats that are well finished for optimal comfort. Its cargo area is also roomy enough for more load. One of the most outstanding features in the model is the presence of touchscreens and digital displays. In the base model, there is an 8.0 inch touchscreen display with all the infotainment functions. A 10 inch center screen with gesture controls is also availed in the higher trim levels as well as the 12.3 inch navigation screen. The rotary drive controller in the model is found at the center of the console that is beautifully furnished. Other features in the car include climate control, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows, a Jaguar InControl audio system, among others. Safety features include cruise and traction control, blind spot monitors, air bags, stability control, pedestrian detection and automatic brakes, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, among others.
Engine and Performance
The buyer will have 2 engine options to choose from in this car model. Both are 3.0 liter supercharged V6 aluminium models with a 90 degree vee and Rootes Type supercharging and direct injection. The engine generates 340 horsepower in lower tune and 380 horsepower in the higher trim level. The generated power, in both engine options, reaches the wheels using an 8 speed automatic gear-box with shift control on the S models. The S model (380 horsepower) can rocket to the 60mph mark in 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 155mph. In addition to the above-described engines, it is likely that later on, a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine option will be provided. This engine model will yield a power capacity of 180 horsepower and withstand 317 pound feet of torque. Although the mileage figures for this new variant have not been presented to the public, the estimates are that a gallon of fuel will cover around 40 miles. The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace has the all wheel drive mode as the standard. For improved performance, the model has a good suspension and also has up to 8.4 inches of ground clearance.
