NYIAS 2018 – 2019 Jaguar F-Pace Gets an SVR Variant

Jaguar Land Rover to Also Give I-Pace and Range Rover SV Coupe U.S. Debuts

Mar 26, 2018
Jaguar will give the 2019 F-Pace a high-performance SVR variant, and the powerful SUV is due to make its first appearance at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. Although Jag has yet to reveal any details of the new SUV, it’s fair to assume it will borrow more than a few bits from other high-performance members of the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) family.

Designed by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) arm, the F-Pace SVR might take some suspension tricks from the Range Rover Sport SVR, a favorite SUV in our long-term garage. Stripped of the Land Rover’s brand-expected off-road performance, the hi-po F-Pace will probably be even grippier and harder-core than the RR Sport SVR, with a lower suspension, massive brakes, meaty tires, and driver-selectable settings for the gearbox, steering, and suspension.

As to what lies under the hood, that’s a bit of a mystery. The F-Pace shares a lot with the Jaguar XE sport sedan, and SVO was able to force the brand’s 5.0L supercharged V-8 under the hood of that machine. The engine, which makes between 510 and 600 hp depending on the tune, might fit in the F-Type’s engine bay. If that’s the case, we expect it to produce the same 518 hp as the Land Rover Discovery SVX Concept. And don’t be surprised if the F-Pace SVR takes the Nürburgring lap record for an SUV from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, bringing the award back to the JLR stable.
Of course, this is all just vicious speculation at this point. Jaguar will reveal the F-Pace SVR in full this week in New York. The F-Pace will share the stage with two JLR vehicles making their North American debuts: the 2019 Range Rover SV Coupe and 2019 Jaguar I-Pace all-electric SUV.

As we reported earlier this month, the Range Rover SV Coupe will be a limited-production version of the luxury SUV. Handcrafted by SVO, the SV Coupe will boast a 557hp version of that aforementioned 5.0L supercharged V-8, and the luxury division will hand-build no more than 999 examples of the two-door SUV.
The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is an all-new, all-electric crossover that’s due to arrive in the U.S. in the second half of this year. With 394 hp and 512 lb-ft of torque thanks to an electric motor at each axle, the I-Pace will hit 60 mph in less than five seconds. Driven more sedately, Jaguar says to expect the I-Pace to travel up to 240 miles per charge. The I-Pace is reportedly able to be 80 percent recharged in 40 minutes when using a public DC fast charger. An 80 percent recharge from a 230V AC outlet takes 10.1 hours, with a full recharge requiring about 12.6 hours.

Earlier this month, Jag revealed its pricing structure for the 2019 I-Pace. Starting at $70,495 with destination before federal and local incentives, the I-Pace will present a compelling alternative to the larger, more expensive Tesla Model X 75D, which achieves an EPA-rated range of 237 miles.
