Inside the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace
Jaguar is one of the most iconic car brands in the world. For decades, this UK-based auto manufacturer has produced and sold a wide variety of luxury vehicles.
Out of Jaguar’s vehicle lineup for 2019, the new 2019 F-Pace looks to be the clear standout.
The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace has a wide variety of trim levels. These trims vary widely based on the features included, engine selection, and other options. Due to this, the base MSRP of each trim can also vary considerably.
For the Jaguar F-Pace, the first series of trims is the 25t trim level.
This starts with the base 25t, which like all other Jaguar F-Pace trims comes standard with all-wheel-drive. As the base trim, this vehicle has a starting MSRP of $44,600. The next option up is the 25t Premium, which has an MSRP starting around $47,000. Following the Premium trim is the 25t Prestige, which starts at $51,600. The final trim is the 25t R-Sport. Starting at $55,900, the R-Sport has an additional drive control features that can make it a better option for those that are looking for some kick and additional driving benefits.
Although the 20d Series is very similar to the 25t, there are two key differences: the lack of a base trim and that it comes standard with the diesel engine. As such, this trim level has the same top trims, which are the Premium ($48,500), Prestige ($53,100), and R-Sport ($57,400).
The next trim level up is the 30t Series. There are four trim options in this series: the Premium ($50,000), Prestige ($54,600), R-Sport ($58,900), and Portfolio ($63,000).
The 30t Series has more interior features than their counterparts. Plus, the R-Sport and Portfolio trims have further driving control benefits and safety features than the lower trims
The highest trim available with the Jaguar F-Pace is the SVR trim. With this trim, you will receive the V8 engine that is not available in the other trims. This makes it ideal for anyone that is looking for the most performance and luxury possible. Along with the higher engine performance, you will see a starting MSRP of $79,990.
Engine Performance and Fuel Efficiency
One area where the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace excels is engine performance. The standard engine choice is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that will provide nearly 250 horsepower. This is much more powerful than many other luxury crossovers available today. At the same time, you can expect to get a blended fuel efficiency of about 26 mpg. The next engine available is a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will provide close to 300 horsepower and a V6 engine that will produce around 380 horsepower. With these engine options, fuel efficiency will likely fall to no more than 22 mpg.
If you want the best engine performance possible, you will want to invest in the SVR trim since it’s equipped with the V8 engine. This impressive engine produces over 550 horsepower, which is extremely fast for a smaller crossover. As a side effect of the increased engine performance, the fuel efficiency will end up declining to around 20 mpg.
Those that are looking for more fuel efficiency will want to upgrade to the diesel engine under the 20d trim series. Although the horsepower will fall to about 180, the fuel efficiency will exceed 30 mpg on a blended basis.
Entertainment and Safety Features
Similar to other Jaguar vehicles, the F-Pace is considered to be a very comfortable vehicle to drive. Drivers will enjoy the stylish and luxurious interior that comes standard with all trims. This includes leather interior, heated seats, and large windows for an expanded view.
The 2019 F-Pace also comes with plenty of entertainment features that drivers will love. The included InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is controlled by an impressive 10-inch touchscreen and comes equipped with an 11-speaker Meridian audio system. For even more entertainment options, a 17-speaker Meridian audio system, a larger touchscreen with navigation, and smartphone integration come with the higher trims.
Drivers will enjoy the large suite of standard safety features. This includes a rearview camera, low-speed automatic emergency braking, alerts for driver drowsiness, improved parking sensors, lane keep assist, and a wide variety of airbags. Higher trims come with high-speed automatic emergency braking, traffic and speed limit sign recognition, and a 360-degree parking camera.
All-in-all, Jaguar is well known for producing vehicles that have great engine performance and plenty of style and tech features. The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is no exception.
While the base engine option is quite powerful, those looking for the best performance possible will really enjoy the V8 that produces a best-in-class horsepower output. At the same time, the F-Pace has a slew of interior features that make it safe and comfortable for anyone to drive.
