2018 Jaguar F-PACE KBB Expert Review
Introduced just last year, the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace is the British luxury brand’s first-ever SUV and it has quickly become its most popular model. This all-wheel-drive compact-crossover SUV plays well on and off-road. It seats five, and in the Jaguar tradition, it’s extremely sexy on the outside and luxurious on the inside. For 2018, the new F-Pace is improved with more standard horsepower, a radically improved in-cabin infotainment system and increases in active safety technology. With many luxury and sport variations, including the supercharged 380-horsepower S model that accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds and an available turbodiesel engine, the new F-Pace is a worthy contender against such luxury-compact SUV stalwarts as the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
You'll Like This Car If...
You’ll like the F-Pace if you want to be noticed. With the world awash in BMW X3s, Audi Q5s and Mercedes GLCs, the Jaguar is for those who want something unique. Something beautiful. It has the chops to challenge those Germans, but it also draws a crowd when you park it.
You May Not Like This Car If...
The quality of Jaguar vehicles is better than ever and continuing to rise steeply, but it’s statistically still behind some of its German rivals. Jaguar’s resale values also continue to lag. If ultimate reliability and high resale value are top priorities, you may want to shop other vehicles in the class.
What's New for 2018
For 2018, the F Pace gets more standard horsepower from its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, an improved infotainment system with faster response, and increases in active safety technology. The optional Surround Camera System now includes Forward Traffic Detection, which alerts the driver when a vehicle is crossing his path.
Sitting high in the F-Pace's driver's seat and confidently aiming its bulging hood down the road feels good. The new standard turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is a powerhouse, making 247 horsepower. That’s enough to get this SUV down the road with a neck snap. Jaguar says it’ll accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6.4 seconds. We also like the turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder engine, which provides deep torque for superb low-speed acceleration. But our favorite is the supercharged V6. It’s a thrill-maker, pumping out 380 horsepower and a mouthwatering growl from the SUV’s dual exhaust tips. With this engine Jag says the F-Pace hits 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds. The 8-speed automatic transmission is also one of the best, shifting precisely and quickly. No amateur on rugged roads, the F-Pace's full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD) system defaults to a rear-drive bias, but can seamlessly assign torque to the front wheels as needed.
Good news for your phone-addicted teenagers: The new Jaguar F-Pace is a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, and up to eight devices can be connected at any one time. Audi and Cadillac also offer onboard Wi-Fi in the compact-crossover-SUV segment, but it’s still unique in the marketplace.
JAGUAR INCONTROL TOUCH PRO
Jag's InControl Touch Pro infotainment/navigation system is a must-have for anybody who can afford it. As part of the $3,200 Technology Pack option on F-Pace Prestige and above models, Touch Pro includes a widely configurable 12.3-inch high-definition touch screen, an ultra-quick navigation system, and a 17-speaker Meridian digital surround-sound system.
With good workmanship and high-quality materials, the interior of the new Jaguar F-Pace is quiet and comfortable with an understated charm and interesting details like the rotary shifter. Five adults fit comfortably with the just-right stadium-seating second row, and the feeling of roominess is enhanced by one of the biggest panorama roofs in the business. Unfortunately visibility is compromised for the driver by a thick B-pillar and a narrow view through the rear window. The standard power rear tailgate opens wide to offer a best-in-class, 33.5-cubic-foot capacity, which expands to almost twice that with the rear seatbacks folded down.
Remember when Jaguars reminded you of red phone booths, double-decker buses and quaint little countryside pubs? Ancient history. Jag doesn’t do stuffy and boring anymore, and its design team wanted to make sure the F-Pace doesn’t get lost in the crowd. No chance. In fact, the F-Pace draws a crowd when you park it. Long, low and wide with an athletic stance and radically raked front and rear glass, the F-Pace looks like it’s as ready for the racetrack as it is the carpool lane. But it also looks right at home parked up front at your favorite fine restaurant.
Notable Standard Equipment
Beyond essentials like strong engine/transmission combinations, every Jaguar F-Pace includes all-wheel drive, weight-saving aluminum used throughout, an epic sliding panorama roof, and a 5,290-pound towing capacity. Also worth paying attention to are the SUV's power front seats and rear liftgate, 11-speaker Meridian sound system, and Jaguar EliteCare. Elite Care includes a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile free scheduled maintenance, 5-year/60,000-mile 24/7 roadside assistance program, and 5-year/unlimited-mileage subscription to Jaguar InControl Remote & Protect services like a smartphone app that lets you remotely lock/unlock the doors, start the engine and heat or cool the cabin, plus automatic notification of emergency services if an airbag deploys.
Notable Optional Equipment
The base 2018 F-Pace model offers an SD-card navigation system and a rearview camera option, but moving up the ladder gives you plenty of places to spend extra. F-Pace option packages offer heated seats and steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, head-up display and blind-spot monitoring. For the technocratic, there are optional Wi-Fi hotspot capability, 360 degrees of outside camera coverage and automatic parking assistance. Adaptive suspension dynamics is also available for better ride and handling, Adaptive Surface Response maximizes grip at any speed, and Configurable Dynamics allows the driver to manually set up how the F-Pace drives.
Under the Hood
The new turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is also used in the Jaguar XE and XF sedans, makes 247 horsepower and is standard on all non-S models. Also available in the Premium, Prestige and R-Sport trim levels is a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder. Fear it not: This Ingenium diesel engine is torquey, fuel efficient and fun to drive. Also optional is the same 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that's making a legend out of Jag's F-Type sports car. That sweetheart of an engine comes at two levels of boost: 340 horsepower for the non-S models and 380 horsepower for S versions. It sounds sexy, with a throaty growl, and turns the F-Pace into a truly quick cat. The superb ZF 8-speed automatic comes standard on all models.

2018 Jaguar F-Pace SUVs start with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of about $43,000 including the $995 destination charge. The Premium model starts around $45,500 and the optional 20d diesel engine adds about $1,500 to the price. Pricing and feature sets move up from there, and you can add $1,400 to almost any F-Pace to get the "35t" supercharged V6 gasoline engine with 340 horsepower. The F-Pace S models start about $59,700 and come with a 380-horsepower V6. All-wheel drive and a panorama roof come on every F-Pace, which keeps the Jag reasonably price-competitive with the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC.

And while Jag holds no historical precedent for strength in the resale-value market, the 2018 F-Pace may hold its value better than past cats.
