Jaguar looks to set benchmark for vehicle dynamics with new F-PACE crossover

Taking chassis dynamics technology adapted from the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car, the new model will also be offered with an All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system that delivers torque-on-demand.

Chief engineer Mike Cross said: “We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-PACE must be a true Jaguar and deliver the Jaguar dynamics DNA.

“We’ve tested ride and handling to extremities in all environments and in all conditions, and the result is that the new F-PACE is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is going to be enjoyable to own. As soon as you get into the vehicle you know immediately that it’s a great place to be.”

The F-PACE will be manufactured using Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture and will feature a Double Wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension with the Electric Power-Assisted Steering system already seen in the F-TYPE, XE and new XF.

The new F-PACE debuts at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
