Additionally, the new model gets everyday versatility and unrivaled dynamics.

Below we’ve reviewed everything that pertains to the new 2017 Jaguar F-Pace, including its release date, price, redesigns, and engine specs.
We highly recommend it to anyone looking to stand out from the crowd. It offers best-in-class backseat and cargo space, fuel-efficient engines, superior off-road capability, supercharged V6 power, and a sharper and engaging driving dynamics. What’s even more, you get all these features for a reasonable price.
Quite often than not, practicality and beauty are mutually exclusive. And yet, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace seems to defy this. What makes it even more appealing, is the fact that it manages to combine the looks, practicality, competitive pricing, and efficiency with superior performance. This is what Director of Design, Jaguar – Ian Callum, had to say, “The new 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is immediately recognizable as a Jaguar. This has been made possible by staying true to Jaguar’s design principles. We’ve managed to create an excellent package because of our disciplined approach to proportions, surfaces, and purity of line.”
For a performance crossover, the new Jaguar F-Pace 2017 had to get optimum designs for better practicality, dynamics, and proportions. That said, Jaguar’s engineering and design teams embarked on creating the crossover SUV using the Lightweight Aluminum Architecture. The exterior profile is sleek and exceptionally aerodynamic for a car of its dimensions.
Again, the new model becomes the first model in the segment to make use of 80% aluminum metal. What this essentially means for buyers, is they should expect significant fuel savings, better aerodynamics, and improved aerodynamics due to the weight savings. In fact, Jaguar says the new F-Pace has a drag coefficient of only 0.34, realized through the extensive use of aluminum, and using state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics. Engineers also achieved better steering feel and stability at higher speeds through excellent lift balance front-to-rear and exceptionally low lift.
“The new 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is as a result of considering views from all our customers around the world and innovation from Jaguar’s designers and engineers. It is a performance crossover that delivers a smooth and quiet ride quality yet manages to offer outstanding dynamics. And together with our all-new infotainment system, advanced all-wheel-drive system, exceptionally large luggage compartment, and a spacious interior manages to make every journey a better, more rewarding experience,” said Vehicle Line Director, Kevin Stride.
Yet the new 2017 F-Pace isn’t without rivals. Some of these include the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Porsche Macan, and Acura RDX.
