It’s certainly a popular formula– Porsche, Bentley, Maserati, and Lamborghini have all heard the siren call of the sporty SUV. So has Jaguar, which just recently revealed its first-ever crossover just in 2015. It’s called the F-Pace, and it’s pretty quick. But some believe it might be quicker, and rumor has it there’s a new apex-munching, V-8-powered range-topper headed our method called the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR. Jaguar-Land Rover’s skunkworks department, Special Vehicle Operations, is improving the Jaguar F-Pace SUV to deliver a sportier variation with around 550hp. The specialised group has actually already included the F-Type SVR and Range Rover Sport SVR to the brand’s ranks with more high efficiency models expected in the future.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Exterior
As is, the F-Pace currently looks very stylish. It utilizes Jaguar’s latest design language to terrific result, blending the strong qualities of a standard SUV, such as a raised position, husky haunches, and a high seating position, with the crisp lines and fine-tuned sophistication already present in the remainder of the lineup. Up front, the fascia echoes the XE, especially around the headlights, grille, and lower intakes, while the back resembles a hatchback variation of the F-Type. Surprisingly, all of it comes together without a hitch. If Jaguar follows through with an 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR, anticipate the naturally muscular design to handle a much more aggressive temperament, with many hints taken straight from the F-Type. The front bumper would get bigger consumptions, plus a chrome accent along the lower center grille and a glossy black insert. The narrow, LED-equipped headlights would remain as is, but the hood would get black vents. Additional vents would be placed on the tail-side of the front fenders, also finished in black.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Interior
One of the greatest appeals of the stylish SUV is a comfortable, luxury-laden cabin, where high-end materials and modern features enhance generous passenger volume. To that end, brushed metal trim, aluminum shift paddles, leather upholstery, and adjustable ambient lighting would all come standard on the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR. For infotainment, Jag should use the latest version of its InControl system, consisting of navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and smartphone app assistance. Controlling it all will be a large touchscreen mounted in the center console, plus a few redundant buttons at the three- and nine-o-clock positions on the three-spoke wheel. Inhabiting the gauge cluster will be an all-digital readout, while a Meridian sound system provides the jams.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Engine
The existing F-Pace uses three options when it pertains to picking a powerplant. The first is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder diesel, good for 180 horsepower and 318 pound-feet of torque. Next is a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, which is readily available in 2 levels of tune– 340 horsepower, or 380 horsepower. Both V-6 engines offer 332 pound-feet of torque. Each of these is more than adequate for something like the F-Pace, with the top-spec F-Pace S capable of sprinting to 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds and striking a leading speed of 155 mph. However, include the letters SVR to the name, and you’re going to require more. A lot more.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Price and Release Date
Pricing is yet to be announced, but the near ₤ 60,000 distinction in between the basic F-Type coupe and SVR edition is an indicator of how the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR will be priced. The typical model costs from ₤ 35,020 so expect the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR to approach ₤ 100,000 when it arrive at UK roads in 2018.
