Eric's Autos; 2022 Jaguar F-Pace

Eric Peters on

The thing about Jags is the most iconic ones have never been practical cars. Thank God.

They have always been beautiful cars.

The chromed leaper on the hood, for instance, is more beautiful all by itself than the entirety of most other cars.

The trick is making practical beautiful.

Enter the F-Pace.

What It Is

 

The F-Pace looks like a medium-small, five-door crossover -- but it's actually a Jaguar under its skin.

Specifically, a Jaguar XF, with which the F-Pace shares the same D7 Premium Lightweight Architecture and underlying mechanicals. That means it shares the same rear-drive-based layout and turbo/supercharged engines -- with the option to get a V8 engine. And that's what makes it a Jaguar that happens to seat five -- and has enough room for all their stuff, too.

Prices start at $50,900 for the P250 trim, which has a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, eight-speed automatic and a full-time AWD system. The $59,600 S340 adds a turbo-supercharged 3.0-liter in-line six, configurable drive modes and an adaptive suspension.

The $65,500 R Dynamic S400 boosts the turbo-supercharged six to 395 horsepower and 406 foot-pounds of torque.
