Eric's Autos: Reviewing the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace
The snow leopard is a big cat like the jaguar, except it is built to deal with snow.
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.
A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine replaces the supercharged V-6 as the standard F-Pace engine.
A V-6 and turbodiesel four-cylinder are available options.
Two new electronic driving aids have been added to the equipment roster: Forward Traffic Detection, a collision-avoidance technology; and Forward Vehicle Guidance, a parking-assist technology.
