The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace makes its World Debut
Suspense was at an all-time high as Jaguar debuted the brand’s first-ever SUV. The 2017 F-Pace made its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show with British stunt driver Terry Grant behind the wheel. Fireworks exploded as Grant sped into a 62.6-foot-tall 360-degree loop, setting a Guinness world record for biggest loop-the-loop.
Designed by the same team as the C-X17 concept vehicle, the F-Pace is a spacious five seater that looks like a cross between Jaguar’s F-Type Coupe and a Range Rover Evoque. It features a low, sleek roof, assertive lines and genuinely looks sporty. The F-Pace has a 113.1-inch wheelbase, with optional 22-inch wheels and Jaguar's signature LED lighting.
"We designed the all-new F-Pace to be first and foremost a Jaguar. That's why it has exciting proportions, a dynamic stance, pure surfaces and a beautiful sensuality about it. Its progressive, purposeful appearance has clearly been influenced by the F-Type. Every Jaguar car should draw your eye from 200 meters away and I believe the presence of the all-new F-Pace on the road is second to none in this class. The Lightweight Aluminum Architecture gave us the design freedom to create a car with latent poise - a svelte car with attitude," said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. "It looks assertive yet not aggressive. But it's also versatile and equipped with real-world answers to everyday questions. The all-new F-Pace is an all-weather Jaguar sports car, life-proofed for five people and their belongings."
The F-Pace will hit dealerships early 2016 with pricing starting at $43,385.
