British carmaker, Jaguar has announced the price of their much-awaited F-Pace luxury SUV that will be officially launched on 20th October, 2016. Powering the performance SUV are two diesel engine options – a 2.0 L and larger 3.0 L unit. Both engines are the new age Ingenium mills that have been developed by Jaguar for higher fuel efficiency, lower emissions and better power delivery. The 2.0 L turbocharged motor generates an impressive 177 hp power while the 3.0 L V6 turbocharged unit churns out 296 hp and a massive 700Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. The 3.0 L unit features Jaguar's unique twin-parallel sequential turbocharging, which eliminates lag across the rev band, thereby improving the throttle response.
The F-Pace shares its platform with the XE and refreshed XF and hence features a lightweight aluminium chassis. The new and lighter engines have further helped lower weight by up to 20 kg and, leading to a 50:50 weight distribution. Torque Vectoring is also part of the package, which assists in negotiating tight corners with ease using independent braking for each wheel. At the price announcement, Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd said, “The launch of the F-Pace in India on 20th October 2016, marks a significant milestone in the expansion of Jaguar's product offerings in India. F-Pace is Jaguar's first performance SUV and is sure to capture the hearts and minds of Jaguar fans and its distinguished & discerning customers spread across India.”
In terms of the interiors, Jaguar has left no stone unturned and the F-Pace comes with a Houndstooth embossed Windsor Leather Sport seats on the top-end F-Pace First Edition. Along with this, a new 10.2-inch InControl Touch Pro touchscreen infotainment system is an easier system to interact with, for the driver, as per the British carmaker. The F-Pace First Edition is inspired by Jaguar's CX-17 Concept and will be offered in two exclusive shades of blue and gold. Additional equipment includes 20-inch wheels finished in gloss black.
A feature exclusive to the F-Pace is the 'Activity Key' which can be tied around the wrist like a fitness band while the key fob can remain in the car if the driver steps out.
