Jag’s chief engineer holds court with the company’s latest pride and joy

When it comes to premium SUVs, the Jaguar F-Pace is the neophyte in a market that has been populated by the likes of the BMW X3 and the Audi Q3. And yet, when you look at the F-Pace, it does have that feel of being more than just the new SUV on the block. Whether it’s the well-designed exterior, the luxurious interior, or the variety of engine options, something about the F-Pace exudes an aura of confidence, the kind that you normally don’t associate with all-new models.

That’s one of the many things that has endeared the F-Pace to a lot of people and to shed more light on Jag’s first ever SUV, AutoCar Editor-in-Chief Steve Cropley managed to score a shotgun ride with Jaguar Chief Engineer Mike Cross as the latter gives an unfiltered lowdown on what makes the F-Pace one of the most significant models Jaguar has ever released. The two discuss a number of items pertaining to the F-Pace, including some of the SUV’s technical features and how they translate to being driven on the road. They also talk about what the addition of the F-Pace means for Jaguar’s lineup moving forward and the importance of the SUV in the automaker’s evolving image.

There are a lot of other things that Cropley and Cross talked about and that would be unfair to describe in words when you can watch the video for yourselves. It’s not that long – 6:28 – so it should make for a very informative viewing experience, especially for those that are currently in the market for a premium SUV. If you’re having trouble choosing, watch this video to see if the F-Pace suits your needs.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
