Jaguar F-Pace spotted in mid-facelift

13-09-2019 11:25
The Jaguar F-Pace came out back in 2015, so it should not be surprising that it is getting its planned mid-generational refresh next year. Today, car spotters have fished out the first test vehicle cruising the city streets.

The Jaguar F-Pace came out back in 2015, so it should not be surprising that it is getting its planned mid-generational refresh next year. Today, car spotters have fished out the first test vehicle cruising the city streets.

Based on the photos provided, the exterior changes will be minimal. The headlights and the bumpers will likely be the only parts to get a new look. The cabin will be getting an XE-style multimedia system and probably also an SVR-like gear joystick instead of the usual selector knob.

Nothing is being revealed about the engines at the moment. The current F-Pace is available with a wide range of engines, including two-liter, four-cylinder gasoline ones rated at 250 hp (186 kW) and 365 Nm (269 lb-ft) of torque and 300 hp (224 kW), 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

The list goes on to include three same-volume diesel units rated at 163 hp (122 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft), 180 hp (134 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft), and 240 hp (179 kW) with 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). A six-cylinder diesel turbo sits at the top of the range with 300 hp (224 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft).

The engine lineup likely won’t be revised too drastically, but new hybrid options may appear, and a gas-powered 3.0-liter V6 with around 400 hp (300 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) is possible, too.

The performance-packed SVR version (see video) can get a much more interesting update. It currently ships with a supercharged V8 engine rated at 550 hp (410 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. The update might switch the series to a superior 4.4-liter, twin-turbo BMW V8 capable of 625 hp (466 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. Rumors persist that the Jaguar F-type SVR coupe and convertible will also be getting the same BMW engine soon, but exact dates remain unknown.
