The F-Pace shows a slightly updated design.
Jaguar introduced the F-Pace back in 2015, before following it up with its other crossover models including the smaller E-Pace, all-electric I-Pace and the supposed large J-Pace. We’re four years on now, but even among its contemporaries the F-Pace is still one of the best looking luxury crossovers in its class. From the outside, it seems Jaguar agrees to an extent, so there aren’t too many blatantly obvious changes adorning what should be the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace.
Up front, this camouflaged F-Pace appears to get a refreshed front clip, though it is not a radical redesign from what we have in the current model. The bumper looks slightly different, as does the headlight design, which is typical of a mid-cycle refresh. Around back, Jaguar has gone about a few more minor changes with the taillights and the rear bumper.
This 2021 Jaguar E-Pace only sports two exhaust outlets, implying this is the less powerful 25t model. Currently, the Jaguar F-Pace powertrains range from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine all the way up to a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Since this looks like it’s just a mild refresh, odds are we’ll see engines similar to what’s already in the F-Pace and the rest of Jaguar’s current lineup.
Current powertrains include:
- 2.0-liter Ingenium I-4: 247 or 296 hp; 269 or 295 lb-ft torque (25t and 30t)
- 3.0-liter V6*: 380 hp and 332 lb-ft torque (S)
- 5.0-liter V8: 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft torque (SVR)
One change we could see with the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is a shift to the 3.0-liter inline-six we’ve now seen in the new Land Rover Defender. It’s a brand new engine for Jaguar Land Rover, using a 48-volt mild hybrid system. In the Defender, it produces 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the current F-Pace S and its 3.0-liter V6, that would be a healthy power bump, and perhaps some improvements in fuel economy as well.
We should see more of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace in the coming months. It’s about time for at least a mid-cycle refresh, so it’s appropriate we’re seeing these spy shots now. As for pricing changes, new powertrains or revamped interior styling, we’ll have to wait and see what comes down the line. Stay tuned to TFLcar.com for more updates!
