A rather unorthodox move from Jaguar comes in the form of 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. This will be the first sport utility vehicle to come from famed car manufacturer. Perhaps it comes from a need to follow the current market demands, or it could be that Jaguar just wants to expand the range of the vehicles it offers. In either case F-Pace promises to be a huge success which will establish England’s luxury car maker on the SUV market.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Engine and Drive-train
There is very little doubt that the engine fueling 2017 F-Pace will be a powerful, state of the art motor with potential a very few others posses. It has been officially announced that both petrol and diesel engines will be obtainable. The SUV will also have the Smart Regenerative Charging technology that ensures better economy, which is especially convenient for city rides.
Forthcoming Jaguar’s SUV will most likely have a 3 liter supercharged V6 motor with 380 horse power engine as their best offer. The top speed it can develop is 155 mph, and it can go from 0 to 60 mph in respectable 5.1 seconds. This engine comes from an in-house made Ingenium, which has been powering Jaguar’s vehicles for some time. These specifications sound promising and give assurance that the 2017 F-Pace will be on top of its class.
Design: Exterior and Interior of 2017 Jaguar F-Pace
Jaguar’s first SUV has a charming appearance. The aluminum made body is light and leaves a strong impression on anyone who lays his eyes on it.

The front of the vehicle features LED headlights which are supported by daytime running lights. 2017 Jaguar F-Pace has a sporty appearance, while maintaining all the elegance we are used to from Jaguar.

It is expected that distribution to the dealerships will start during the spring of 2016, but at this moment there are very few information which confirm this projection. 2017 Jaguar F-Pace price estimations vary, but they all agree that this not going to be an entry-level vehicle. These projections say that the starting price will be approximately 42.000$, and that it may rise as high as 71.000$. More information will become available as the SUV’s release date approaches. 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC and 2015 BMW X3 will present a though competition for the newcomer, and the time will tell whether or not F-Pace will be able to establish itself on the market as the top of the class vehicle.
