The Jaguar F-Pace is the snow leopard of Jaguars. It has more than twice the ground clearance (8.3 inches) of an XJ sedan or an F-TYPE coupe. It comes standard with road-clawing (paved or not) all-wheel drive. And it offers a diesel engine with high gas mileage, which no rival offers.

What It Is

The F-Pace is a five-passenger luxury-sport crossover SUV.

It costs $42,065 for the base 25t trim. Equipped with the available turbodiesel engine, the price rises to $46,275. A top-of-the-line 35t Portfolio trim with a supercharged V-6 engine costs $63,200.
