Jaguar unveils its 2019 F-Pace SVR

Jaguar is an automaker best known for elegant sports cars, big grand tourers, and luxury sedans. With the ever-expansing SUV popularity among the urban drivers, the fabled automaker decided to try its luck with a new market niche, releasing its Jaguar F-Pace model. Since it went on sale two years ago, the sport-luxury SUV has not only been topping the automaker’s sales charts, but it has also earned comparison test victories, and even an SUV of the year finalist prize.   

The F-Pace SVR has nearly 100bhp more than a Porsche Macan Turbo Performance Pack. Jaguar claims that its newest F-Pace will do 0–60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and that it has a top speed of 176 mph - impressive, considering its size and weight. It must be noted that SVO did not just perform a heart transplant and call it a day. It also worked hard to ensure the F-Pace SVR’s prodigious power is actually usable. Its new front and rear fascia, plus its new spoiler work to reduce lift and improve aerodynamics, and a stiffer adaptive suspension system and more rigid chassis combines with a revised electric power-steering system to keep the shiny side up during spirited driving.   

In addition to these mechanical tweaks, the F-Pace now features the same Electronic Active Differential found on the F-Type, and the controls and electronic systems in charge of the car’s drivetrain and adaptive suspension have been calibrated for the SVR. Often it can take a year for a new model to make it from auto show to dealer showroom, but that is not going to be the case for the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR. The new performance SUV hits Jaguar dealers this summer, at a starting price tag of $80,985.
