We Recommend

The Powerful SVR makes its debut this year so if you yearn for power packed performer you can go for it. If your pockets are your barriers, then you can go for the F-Pace S trim. If you still want to go for the lower trims but still don't want to compromise with the comfort then go for the various packages available on 25t and 30t.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE diesel SUV Engine and Performance

All of the engines feel energetic, including the turbo-four, but the V6 and V8 really take things to a new level.-car.usnews.com

Engine and Transmission

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace S comes with a 3.0 liter Super Charged V6 engine. With the supercharger mounted on to it, this engine is capable of churning a 380 hp horsepower and a 332 lb.ft torque. That looks quite impressive for the price being paid.

Moreover, this engine is paired up with 8 Speed Automatic Transmission. An All-Wheel-Drive system comes standard on all the trims.

With this supercharged engine, the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace leads the class followed by the Audi Q8 and the Maserati Levante. Although the Range Rover Sport HSE has a supercharged3.0Liter V6 engine, it still comes at the end of the line along with the Porsche Cayenne and the BMW X5.

Acceleration

Looks like the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace S with its supercharged V-6 engine catches speed on a quick pace. It accelerates to a speed of 60MPH in 5.1seconds. Its lighter weight seems to play quite a role in its quick acceleration apart from its powerful engine.

With such an impressive acceleration the F-Pace once again leads the class followed by X5 and the Q8. Then come the Levante, Cayenne and the Range Rover Sport HSE.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace feels pretty smooth to be handled on curvy and tight roads. This is because of its ease to change its directions while still holding the line. But due to a very stiff suspension, it might get a little bumpy on the rugged paths when at speed.

Moreover, the transmission feels quite responsive and its high ground clearance and its all-wheel-drive system make it run with ease on all types of terrains. However, you cannot expect it to be an off-roader

Braking

The braking pedals of the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace looks quite optimum and help in providing smooth braking. Although their sizes are not yet available, they are sufficient enough to stop it at a distance of 121 ft while traveling at a speed of 60MPH.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE diesel SUV Competition

2019 Jaguar F-Pace S vs Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE has been in the market for quite some time now. On the other hand, it's the third year for the F-Pace into the market. Although both of them come with a 3.0 Liter Supercharged V6 engine, the F-Pace is a more power packed performer in all the aspects. However, the Range Rover Sport still maintains an upper hand when it comes to interior space and luxury. Also, it seems to be a better off-roader. However, with a much economic price, the F-Pace still stands as a better option

2019 Jaguar F-Pace S vs Audi Q8

The Audi Q8 has made its debut into the market for the first time. However, it has taken its stance in the market right after its debut. However, with a power supercharged V6 engine, the F-Pace still stands as a tough rival to be brought down both in terms of power and performance. Although with a poor infotainment system makes it fall back. This is because the Audi Q8 has made its debut packed up with advanced technological features. So basically if you are looking into the Q8 it's because of its technical aspects and not the performance aspects.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace S vs BMW X5

It has been a long time that the BMW X5 has been on the market. Thus it very well knows how to maintain its stance without being disturbed by any new comers. Although the supercharged V6 engine of the F-Pace is quite powerful, then the X5, the BMW X5 performs on par with the F-Pace in most of the aspects. Moreover, its fuel economy is more, the infotainment system is superior and also has quite a spacious and luxurious interior. So this could be a table turner that offers you more at the same price.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE diesel SUV Final Verdict

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is still part of the first generation. Still, it holds a variety of trims with many luxurious features and a quite a differentiating powertrains. It sure is worth what it is being paid for but still aspects such as the infotainment system and a few other technical aspects are yet to be worked upon.
