What You Will Like

The F-Pace slots into Jaguar's lineup above their new entry-level XE, but below the mid-sized XF, nearly splitting the difference in price between the two sedans. With a base price of below $41,000, the F-Pace is surprisingly cheap, especially considering its combination of sporty styling and excellent performance. A Porsche Macan is over $14,000 more expensive to start and while a BMW X3 is somewhat cheaper, it doesn't have nearly the presence that the F-pace has, even in its base configuration.

What's New For 2017

The F-Pace is a brand new vehicle in 2017 and is currently the only crossover or SUV sold by Jaguar. As it turns out, Jaguar's corporate styling philosophy translates well onto the tall wagon body used by the F-Pace, with the new vehicle looking exceptionally sporty for a crossover. The sporty styling is not misplaced as Jaguar have gone through great lengths to ensure that the new F-Pace is every bit as exciting to drive as it is to look at.


  • Basic Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

What’s this? A Jaguar truck? The ghost of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons might moan in dismay, but a carmaker lacking a truck (words like sport-utility and crossover weren’t part of the automotive lexicon in Sir William’s day) is giving away sales in today’s market. And Jaguar is about a decade late to the game.

Arriving so late means that to have any chance of success the newcomer has to be exceptional. Does this new Jaguar measure up to that metric? Let’s come back to that.

First, the fundamentals. The Jaguar F-Pace is based on the same solid rear-wheel-drive structure that’s the foundation for the new Jaguar XE sedan, though the architecture has been expanded for the SUV; the new crossover sport-utility slots between the BMW X3 and X5 in terms of size. And it should weigh in at the low end of the compact crossover SUV scale, thanks to a body shell that’s 80 percent aluminum.

While its dimensions and tightly wrapped skin suggest athleticism, a suggestion vindicated by its dynamics, the Jaguar F-Pace also has a high usefulness index, thanks to a roominess advantage versus its prime competition, most of which hails from Germany.

Other strong points: infotainment and telematics that are several cuts above previous Jaguar systems; an excellent premium audio option; quiet operation; all-wheel drive is standard on all models; and respectable off-road performance augmented by a new system that allows the operator to select a specific speed for crawling up or down steep slopes.

At launch, F-Pace buyers have the choice of a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 in two levels of output: 340 horsepower or 380 hp, both rated for 332 pound-feet of torque. A turbodiesel is expected to join the powertrain inventory fall 2016. All engines transmit thrust through an 8-speed automatic transmission, primarily to the rear wheels, sending power to the front wheels when needed.

And, finally, there’s the value factor: price-wise, the F-Pace is at the low end of its competitive set.


The 2017 Jagaur F-Pace comes in nearly a dozen trim levels, starting with the diesel-powered F-Pace 20d ($40,990). The F-Pace 35t ($42,840) is powered by a 340-hp V6. Other models include the F-Pace Premium ($45,700); F-Pace Prestige ($50,100); F-Pace Sport and F-Pace R Sport ($57,290); and the limited-production F-Pace First Edition. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge of $995.)


At some level, it’s reasonable to say all sport-utility vehicles look pretty much alike, basically a two-box shape with varying degrees of detailing in the sheetmetal. Reduced to basics, the F-Pace is typical of contemporary styling trends, particularly compared to a segment pacesetter like the Porsche Macan. Still, this newcomer does manifest current Jaguar styling cues, particularly up front, and with the exception of a strong character line stretching between the wheel wells its skin fits like Spandex.

Viewed in profile the rear-sloping roofline and beltline rising from front to rear are reminiscent of the Range Rover Evoque, not too surprising considering the Jaguar Land Rover family ties. But in any case the taut surfaces, rearward converging lines, and muscular haunches conspire to give the F-Pace an action-ready look that does stand out from the crowd.

The F-Pace is a little bigger than key competitors such as the Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC, and Porsche Macan. But it’s only slightly bigger, and its proportions disguise its size.


Michael Dale was fond of saying, “Jaguars are about elegance; a Jaguar should make you feel elegant.” As a former RAF fighter pilot and Sports Car Club of America national champion, a man with a need for speed, this seemed a slightly odd trait for Mr. Dale to espouse. But as the then president of Jaguar North America, Mr. Dale’s observations commanded respect.

His elegance assertion was made in another century, but it’s a solid bet that he’d find plenty of elegance in the cabin of a new F-Pace, even in the basic trim level. It may not be the kind of walnut-lined elegance that distinguished Jaguars of yesteryear. But the contemporary blend of first rate materials, handsome design, painstaking craftsmanship, and up-to-date infotainment.

This last, telematics, infotainment, connectivity, call it what you will, hasn’t been a strong point in Jaguars, but it is now. The screens are big (standard) and bigger (bigger in higher trims), with bright icons and a nav system that’s cooperative and accurate.

Almost as important, the F-Pace is roomy compared to its German rivals, ample leg and head room behind the front seats, lots of stowage behind the rear seats. One caveat: like all two-row SUVs, great and small, the F-Pace is rated for five passengers, but occupying that middle spot in the rear means straddling the driveshaft tunnel. So, the center seat is best suited to kids in car seats.

Driving Impressions

As noted, the F-Pace looks like an athlete (by SUV standards), and its responses vindicate its appearance, i.e., they’re athletic. Body motions are well controlled; steering is surgically precise, and particularly tactile on center; and tire grip, augmented by all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, sending power to the wheel with traction, inspires a high level of confidence.

Speaking of high: our half-day with the F-Pace took place in high country around Aspen, Colorado, at altitudes ranging from 8000 to over 12,000 feet. Altitude saps horsepower, but even so Jaguar’s supercharged V6 engines delivered impressive punch in tight passing situations.

Punch up the optional Dynamic Mode, and the Jaguar’s computer enhances throttle response, raises transmission shift points, reduces shift time, adds weight to the steering effort, and adds red to the instrument lighting, so you know you’re ready to rock.

Jaguar predicts 0-to-60 mph in 5.1 seconds with the 380-horsepower V6, 5.5 seconds with the 340 hp version, at sea level. Altitude erodes horsepower, but based on our Rocky Mountain high experiences, we have no reason to doubt the claims.

In addition to brisk acceleration and agile dynamics, the F-Pace is also quiet at most speeds on most pavement, and delivers surprisingly supple ride quality.

Another surprise: the F-Pace has moderate off-road capability, with a nifty new feature that allows the driver to negotiate steep uphills and precipitous downhills by setting a specific (low) speed, 3 mph, 5 mph, whatever seems appropriate. Jaguar calls it All Surface Progress Control. Think of it as a low speed cruise control.

One performance element that wasn’t on display in Colorado was the 2.0-liter turbodiesel, 180 horsepower, 318 pound-feet of torque, that will become available this fall. However, the same engine is available in the new XE sedan, which was also part of the Colorado program, and while the F-Pace is substantially heavier, we anticipate respectable performance based on our experience in the diesel-powered XE.


In performance, style, assembly, appointments, and, though it’s a minor point for this kind of luxury crossover, off-road capability, Jaguar’s first SUV is at least the equal of anything in its class and arguably better than most. Though he was basically a sports car purist, it seems safe to say Sir William would approve.

New Car Test Drive founding editor Tony Swan filed his report after test drives of Jaguar F-Pace models in Colorado.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
