Jaguar has updated the F-Pace SUV which is all set to go on sale in Europe sometime in 2023 as a 2024 model. The plug-in hybrid model is now claimed to offer a 20% extra range. The 2024 F-Pace trim lineup comprises R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE, R-Dynamic HSE, 400 Sport and SVR (Market dependant). Prices in the UK start at £48,660 OTR.
Visually, the 2024 F-Pace doesn’t look any different compared with the outgoing model. However, there are a few key points to note. The R-Dynamic S, SE and HSE trims are equipped with 19-, 20- and 21-inch wheels respectively, offered with a choice of diamond-turned or black finish (all available with optional self-sealing tyres), while the 400 Sport now has 22-inch forged wheels—Style 1020 in Gloss Silver with diamond-turned finish and contrast inserts (market dependant). The centre caps on all are now black and silver as opposed to the previous red and silver.
The Black Pack is now standard on all models from the R-Dynamic SE through to the SVR; the pack now comes with gloss black finished mirror caps, grille, grille surround, window surrounds, fender vents, rear valance, and rear badge. Another subtle change is the R-Dynamic grille badge updated to black and grey as opposed to red and green.
On the inside then, the R-Dynamic S gains a new TFT digital driver display, offering a two-dial configuration with a choice of media or navigation in the centre, while wireless smartphone charging is standard from the R-Dynamic SE. Also, every trim in the F-Pace has the Pivi Pro infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay, Wireless Android Auto, integrated Alexa voice control, and what3words navigation.
Moving on to the juicy bits, the F-Pace SVR continues with the 405 kW (550 metric hp) 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine, while there are MHEV and PHEV options as well for those who don’t fancy the SVR.
Let’s talk a bit more about the PHEV then, shall we? The variant is called the F-Pace P400e. The setup is still the same; I mean, a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine is coupled with an electric motor and an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, offering combined figures of 297 kW (404 metric hp) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft). The battery pack capacity is now 19.2 kWh as opposed to 17.1 kWh of the outgoing model, resulting in a pure-electric range of up to 65 km (40 mi)—up from 53 km (33 mi).
