Jaguar on Tuesday revealed the 2021 Model year F-Pace SVR performance which is more Quickier and can hit a higher top speed in seconds.
Like the outgoing model, the new SUV features the automaker’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine pumping out 542 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque, a 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) gain over the current F-Pace SVR. Coupled to the upgraded engine is a ZF eight-speed automatic and a torque on-demand all-wheel drive system that allows the SUV to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in a mere 3.8 seconds, three-tenths of a second faster than before. The SUV’s top speed sits at 178 mph (286 km/h).
Jaguar’s engineers have recalibrated the vehicle’s Dynamic driving mode to provide sharper throttle response, a stiffer suspension set up, optimized steering weighting, and made enhancements to the exhaust mapping. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR also includes a new Dynamic Launch feature that uses driveline inertia to maintain power to the wheels during gear changes.
The SUV’s adaptive damping has been updated to provide a more refined ride at low speeds. The massive brakes have also been updated with a new Integrated Power Booster that delivers a sportier and shorter brake pedal. Enhanced cooling also improves the performance of the brakes.
Inside, there’s now an 11.4-inch infotainment display to replace the previous 10-inch screen. The new unit supports over-the-air software updates, and also a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. There’s also a stumpy, new gearshift, rather than the previous handle-shaped design. The steering wheel gets a zinc-alloy material for the shifter paddles.
Pricing will be announced closer to the market launch next year but for reference the current F-Pace SVR starts at $80,985.
