Jaguar’s first crossover SUV, the F-Pace will soon get the high-performance version to compete with rivals like the Porsche Macan Turbo, Mercedes AMG GLC63, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio but upcoming Audi RS Q5 and BMW X3 M as well. The current version can be had with two four-banger engines including the diesel option. More power comes from the 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 available in 340 and 380 horsepower options. However, the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR will get special treatment from Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations.
The “special treatment” means the supercharged V-8 engine under the hood combined with upgraded underpinning, brakes, exhaust, etc. The high-performance character of the model will also have the effects on model’s exterior and interior. The model should debut in early 2018.
2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR: Design
The SVR version of the slinky F-Pace was spotted while testing covered with black/white camo and obviously the model will boast more aggressive styling than conventional versions. The 2019 jaguar F-Pace will have the more aggressive front bumper with huge air openings responsible for cooling down the supercharged V-8. The profile of the prototype has very similar bodywork as the current versions but the difference will make lightweight wheels with low-profile tires. Peeking behind the rim arches are massive brake discs.
The further distinction will be seen on model’s rear end. The SVR version will get the unique rear bumper and quad-tip exhaust setup.
Interior of the model hasn’t been caught by the spy photo. However, inside the cabin we should expect aggressively bolstered, sports front seats combined with unique upholstery and special accents on the dash, door panels, etc.
The model will also get the latest InControl Touch interface and the package of active safety systems. The premium sound system will also interference with the sound of the mighty V-8 engine.
2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR: Performance
What is most important about the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR is, of course, what this model will have under the hood. We don’t have doubt that power will come from Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine. However, the question remains what level of power will this engine provide in this application. We expect the number around 550 horsepower which would place the 60mph time in 4 or fewer seconds.
Jaguar will combine this engine with the 8-speed automatic transmission. The power will go on all four wheels by default. The model will also get a special-tuned suspension, upgraded brakes and exhaust. We should also see the special combination of materials in some components in order to save some pounds.
2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR: Arrival, Price
The premiere of the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR will take place at some Auto Show in the first half of 2018. The price estimation is around $65, 000.
