2017 JAGUAR F-PACE:

An SUV that embraces the Jaguar luxury and performance

During the introduction of the all new Jaguar F-PACE, I, along with most of the auto media folks, were captivated by this premium luxury SUV.

Fitting those attributes By Ron into a package that isn’t Moorhead a sports car or a sports sedan especially on the level that is historically Jaguar is a tall order. The folks at the land of the Leaper (the leaping cat of Jaguar) achieved their goal and then some. The F-PACE embodies the personality that Jaguar vehicles have embraced and expressed for years.

At the first sound of its growling exhaust I knew right away this was appropriately honoring the Jaguar Leaper. This SUV has the performance to back it up. You can easily see design cues taken from the F-TYPE. From the headlights set into the front fenders and the styling highlights as they run rearward to the taillights, along the way there are bits of F-TYPE. As Director of Jaguar design, Ian Callum explained, “The all-new F-PACE is an all-weather sports car.” According to Callum, the lightweight aluminum architecture gave them the design freedom to create a svelte SUV with attitude. You can certainly see F-TYPE personality throughout, particularly in the muscular 4X4 OFF ROAD HEADQUARTERS rear shoulders and the rear taillights.
