Jaguar reveals the new F-Pace in full ahead of its full debut at Frankfurt
One of Jaguar’s most hotly anticipated model, the new F-Pace crossover, was recently revealed in full on the web.
After countless teasers, rumors, and reports, Jaguar’s first ever foray into the world of the luxury crossover is here, to take on the long-running BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE (formerly the M-Class) and the Audi Q7.
Due for a full reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show in just a few weeks time, the F-Pace stays true to the original concept design of the C-X17, which perhaps makes it the most attractive SUV crossover in its class.
It’s built using J-LR’s latest iQ[Al] platform, which obviously signifies the extensive use of aluminum with the periodic table abbreviation, the new F-Pace also promises to be the lightest in its segment. According to the press release, aluminum is utilizes in nearly ever component from the entire double wishbone front suspension, to the integral link rear suspension subframe.
The new F-Pace also debuts Jaguar-Land Rover’s latest line of Ingenium engines, stating with a collection of gasoline and diesel fours, along with Jaguar’s traditional supercharged AJ-V6 and finally, the supercharged AJ-V8 in 5.0L form for the top-spec F-Pace SVR.
Some rumors suggested an all-electric model may surface as well, boasting a range of around 300 miles. Though there hasn’t been any confirmation of such a model yet.
Either way, check out the press release after the jump along with a video previewing the new F-Pace.
