2017 Jaguar F-Pace Release Date and Price
It’s been almost two years since Jaguar publicly announced its first SUV model ever. Back in 2013 at the Frankfurt motor show, the concept version of the Jaguar’s SUV was first revealed. Since then, the model has been previewed on several other occasions. According to the latest reports, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is expected to make its debut in 2016.
The C-X17 concept made its first public appearance at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show. Later on the same year, it made its debut at the Guangzhou motor Show, followed by several other presentations of this concept vehicle. Then the British automaker unveiled a test prototype of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace during the 2015 Tour de France cycling race. On this occasion, Jaguar’s crossover SUV served as a back-up vehicle to Team Sky team, which turned out to be a great publicity stunt for the upcoming model.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Price
As for the proper global premiere of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace, it is expected to take place at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. The model will be built in Solihull, UK, with its pricing most likely to start around £40,000.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Design and Specs
The C-X17 Concept was underpinned by an advanced modular platform made of aluminum. A similar architecture is expected when it comes to the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. The production-ready version will retain the concept’s dimensions (4,718 l/1,959 w/1,649 h mm). Its wheelbase will stretch 2,905 mm, while the ground clearance should measure 213 mm.
The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace has actually been announced as „The Ultimate Practical Sports Car“, sharing many of its features with the XE model. The company’s officials claim that the upcoming model will be exceptionally dynamic and agile. Thanks to its aluminum chassis, it will come as one of the lightest models in the segment. For instance, the Porsche Macan SUV, as its main rival, weighs 1,850 kg. As for the 2017 F-Pace, it is expected to weigh only 1,600 kg. Needless to say, its lowered curb weight combined with a powerful engine range will result in superb performance figures and great fuel economy.
Mechanically, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace will be offered with a range of Ingenium engines. These are the four-cylinder 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel engines fitted with a turbocharger. There will also be a mighty 3.0-liter V6 gasoline unit and a 5.0-liter V8 on offer as well. However, the V8 together with the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace Hybrid are expected to arrive at a later date. The entry-lever F-Pace will come with standard RWD, while AWD should be optional. Some sources even suggest that the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace AWD will comparable to the Land Rover models.
