Jaguar Gives Us a Sneak Peek of the F-Pace on YouTube

Jun 24, 2015
Previewed by the C-X17 concept, Jaguar’s all-new F-Pace midsize crossover was teased ever-so-slightly in a recent YouTube video published by the company. There’s not much new information, but we are given a look at the SUV’s family-resemblance light signature, basic shape, and engineering.

If the silhouettes featured in the video are any indication, the F-Pace will be quite a looker. F-Type–inspired LED light pipes in the taillights are unmistakably Jaguar, while hexagonal-element LED headlights and J-shaped LED daytime running lamps give the front end a very modern feel while still falling in line with its family’s styling.
The sketch featured in the beginning of the video, combined with generous coverage of the C-X17 crossover concept, make us think that the production vehicle will lose little in its transition from show car to road car. Jaguar also admits that the F-Pace will be mounted on the company’s Aluminium Intensive Architecture, which endows the Jaguar XF and XE sedans with lighter curb weights than their competition. We predict a similar dynamic advantage from the F-Pace. A short front overhang looks appropriately sporty, unlike the slightly awkward proportions of its front-drive–biased competition from Acura, Cadillac, and Lexus.

As we’ve reported before, the F-Pace may not be the last word in Jaguar crossovers. The midsize F-Pace may be joined by a fullsize J-Pace (inspired by the XJ sedan) and compact E-Pace (sharing much with the XE sedan).
