2017 All-Stars Contender: Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar’s first SUV is hungry for a trophy

The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace S roared into the All-Stars competition on 22-inch wheels driven by a 380-horsepower supercharged V-6. The F-Pace is Jaguar’s first-ever SUV and the British automaker couldn’t afford to get its entry into the hot market segment wrong.

With 332 lb-ft of torque on offer as well, the F-Pace S is capable of hitting 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds. The output gets sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Our example came equipped with plenty of luxury and tech upgrades, including the $1,800 Comfort and Convenience Package (cooled front seats, heated and power-reclining rear seats, gesture-opening tailgate). It also featured the $2,200 Luxury Interior Upgrade Package (four-zone climate control, cooled glovebox, upgraded carpet, suede-cloth headliner, and configurable ambient lighting), and $3,200 Technology Package (10.2-inch navigation screen, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and 825-watt Meridian sound system).

Absent from this package are increasingly common active features like adaptive cruise control. Jaguar offers it along with 360-degree parking assist as part of the $3,200 Driver Assistance Package.

After spending some time with the F-Pace, online editor Ed Tahaney found himself fond of the exterior, noting, “the F-Pace is one of the best-looking SUVs around, it looks good coming and going.”

Features editor Rory Jurnecka wrote, “the F-Pace offers just the right blend of comfort and sport — it’s a vehicle that feels confident when it’s pushed, but doesn’t make sacrifices when you just want to amble around town.”

Was the F-Pace able to parlay these positive impressions into an AUTOMOBILE All-Stars trophy? Come back on March 11 to find out.
