New 2021 F-PACE: Jaguar Heritage Reborn | Monchster Chronicles

Enhanced exterior design, an all-new interior, advanced connectivity, and efficient electrified powertrain capability 

With an assertive new exterior, beautifully crafted all-new interior, latest generation Pivi Pro infotainment, and the in-line four-cylinder engine and MHEV technology, the new Jaguar F-PACE is more luxurious, connected, and efficient. 

All-new interior features exquisite details, luxurious materials, and intuitive technology to create a tranquil cabin space for all occupants

The new exterior design gives the award-winning F-PACE performance SUV a cleaner, more assured presence, featuring a new sculpted bonnet with a wider power bulge and smoother, more precisely defined surfaces. The new bonnet also contributes to a more striking finish by reducing the number of shutlines on the front of the car.

New bonnet design, super-slim all-LED headlights, new grille, and new rear lights and bumper for a more assertive presence

An enlarged grille features Jaguar’s heritage logo-inspired ‘diamond’ detailing, while the side fender vents now feature the iconic Leaper emblem, demonstrating the exceptional attention to detail found right across the vehicle. A new front bumper with redesigned air intakes and dark mesh details visually widen the new F-PACE for a more assured dynamic presence.

At the rear, new slimline lights feature Jaguar’s double chicane graphic – first previewed on the all-electric I-PACE – to accentuate the width of the vehicle. The new bumper design and sculpted new tailgate also add visual drama and deliver a more confident appearance.

All-new, crafted interior

The F-PACE has an all-new interior with heightened luxury, enhanced connectivity, and greater serenity and refinement. The new cockpit design is bolder, more dynamic, and with a greater focus on the driver. A new sporty center console, faster in profile, sweeps up to the instrument panel and incorporates a wireless charger and greater console stowage.

Innovative Active Road Noise Cancellation and Full climate control 

At the heart of the new interior is a seamlessly integrated centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Authentic finishes, including wood veneers and aluminum, feature in beautifully formed shapes such as the upper door insert and full-width ‘Piano lid’ that is formed across the width of the instrument panel. Laser-etched mid-line speaker frets and the metallic rotary dial of the JaguarDrive Control epitomize the attention-to-detail.

The new Drive Selector

The new Drive Selector – just one of the many beautiful details – features an upper section finished with ‘cricket-ball’ stitching, the lower part is made of precision-engineered metal for enhanced tactility.

New door casings, featuring a new 360-degree grab handle, provide easier access and increased storage for drinks bottles, and other items, while the electric window switches are moved down from the top of the door roll, putting them within easier reach of occupants. 

Power and performance

The new F-PACE is available in the latest four-cylinder in-line diesel Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology Ingenium engine. All F-PACE models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions. 

Full powertrain: Diesel, 199PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD

Next-generation 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged Ingenium diesel engine delivers improved efficiency with MHEV technology

Advanced MHEV technology, available on the four-cylinder diesel engine powertrain uses a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) to harvest energy usually lost when slowing and braking. This energy is then stored in a separate 48V lithium-ion battery before being intelligently redeployed to assist the engine when accelerating away, as well as delivering a more refined stop/start system. 

Cutting-edge connected technologies

The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through the all-new 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen. Key benefits include enhanced clarity, the screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 percent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less. The intuitive new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay as standard.

To help drivers access vital information quickly, the new F-PACE also features an HD Interactive Driver Display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout that can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list, or infotainment details. Working in conjunction with the optional Head-up Display technology, the new F-PACE gives drivers all the information they need with the least distraction.

HD Interactive Driver Display

Segment-first Active Road Noise Cancellation technology constantly monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants. This means quieter levels within the cabin and improved refinement that helps to reduce fatigue, commonly associated with prolonged exposure to low-frequency noise. Cabin occupancy is monitored, with the system continuously optimizing performance to deliver the best possible experience for everyone. The lightweight technology ensures that vehicle weight and handling characteristics remain unaffected. Engine Noise Cancellation isolates the cabin from unwanted engine noise to further enhance the sense of tranquillity.

Jaguar’s latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers advanced 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to deliver more detail and a choice of real-time viewing when maneuvering the vehicle. 

The aluminum-intensive architecture uses recycled aluminum from closed-loop manufacturing

Jaguar’s commitment to creating strong and lightweight vehicles continues with the new F-PACE. The aluminum-intensive architecture uses recycled aluminum from closed-loop manufacturing for greater sustainability and is an important contribution towards Jaguar’s journey to Destination Zero, a world of zero emissions, zero accidents, and zero congestion.

  1. After all, you do not want to be out in the middle of a drive and have the engine sputter and quit on you, nor do you want to end up saddled with thousands of dollars in repair costs because the previous owner did not treat the vehicle with the respect it deserves. Ferrari for Rent
