Six F-PACE Trims and Numerous Interior Amenities

The 2018 F-PACE comfortably seats five, with a spacious interior featuring plenty of room for those even in the second row. What makes this car stand out is the ability to customize things to your liking. Leather seating is standard in the base edition, but the new Portfolio trim offers extra comfort with softer, extra-pleated Windsor leather seats.

This roomy SUV comes with 33.5 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the rear seats, perfect for daily drives but also offering enough space for weekend adventures. Throw in a set of golf clubs or some hiking gear to take with you. The front seats offer lumbar support, with ventilation controls to keep you comfortable, regardless of what the temperature is outside the cabin.

A Powerful Jaguar Engine

The F-PACE offers a choice between a diesel and a gasoline engine. The three engines from the 2017 model all return, but the 2018 F-PACE also adds a fourth option, a 247-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine featuring all-wheel drive. The other options are:

  • 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder 180-horsepower turbocharged diesel
  • 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder 296-horsepower turbocharged gas
  • 3.0-liter, supercharged 380-horsepower V6 gas

Each version of the F-PACE shifts from a powerful 8-speed automatic transmission. And when it comes to steering, braking, and tight turns, the F-PACE is smooth and graceful, while providing outstanding fuel economy, too. The efficient diesel engine receives an EPA-estimated 33 MPG on the highway1.

The supercharged 380-horsepower V6 engine offers the fastest acceleration across the available engines. In testing, the 2018 F-PACE S with 380-horsepower went from 0-60 MPH in just 5.4 seconds.

A High-Performance Vehicle

Jaguar vehicles are generally known as being sporty and quick-to-respond to driver inputs. Despite this being an SUV, it still responds like a sportier vehicle. When the road conditions do change, the F-PACE is capable of mixing its driving aids with standard all-wheel drive to offer a convenient experience.

The All-Surface Progress Control system can assist drivers in slippery situations by getting around a snowy driveway or powering through slick grass. The Adaptive Surface Response, which is an available feature, is able to pinpoint where traction is needed, so you don't spin out on a slippery surface.
