Jaguar E-Pace Sets Record For Farthest Barrel Roll in a Production Vehicle

Jaguar E-Pace Sets Record For Farthest Barrel Roll in a Production Vehicle

Talk about making a big splash at your world debut

It’s hard to have a more successful world debut than what the Jaguar E-Pace just had. You would think that being the second SUV in Jaguar’s lineup would be enough to catch people’s attention, right? Nope. Jaguar had to do something different, and it did just that by setting a new Guinness World Record for the longest barrel roll of any production vehicle, doing so by hitting a 50 foot-long jump and completing a 270-degree corkscrew in the process. The world record itself is impressive, but it’s really old hat for Jaguar, which has made a habit of setting world records upon the debuts of its new models. Remember, the Jaguar F-Pace also launched itself in the record books when it set the loop-the-loop record with a measurement of 62.6 feet during its launch in 2015.

Renowned stunt driver Terry Grant took the wheel of the E-Pace during the barrel roll attempt, which was an excellent choice as Grant owns 24 Guinness World Records. Think the E-Pace’s barrel roll record is his crowning achievement? That’s up for debate since he also owns the aforementioned loop-the-loop record with the F-Pace, not to mention his other records, including driving a Nissan Juke on two wheels and going 55 mph for 1.6 miles while piloting the Nissan Leaf. This new world record set by the E-Pace is the perfect showcase of the new SUV’s agility and performance capabilities. It’s hard to imagine any kind of real-world application as far as barrel-rolling is concerned, but then again, a record is a record and Jag’s new SUV can now be considered a legitimate world record-holder.

Jaguar Pulls The Covers Off Of The New E-Pace, Officially Establishes SUV Family

Jaguar Pulls The Covers Off Of The New E-Pace, Officially Establishes SUV Family

The E-Pace has big shoes to fill following up the F-Pace

The Jaguar F-Pace represents Jag’s first foray into the SUV market and it’s been an unbridled success. It’s received rave reviews, posted strong sales numbers, and was even named the 2017 World Car of the Year back in April. Needless to say, the follow-up model would have enormous shoes to fill. That model has now arrived, and from the looks of things, the all-new Jaguar E-Pace is going to do just fine slotting in below the F-Pace in Jag’s now-potent crossover and SUV lineup.

The entry-level premium crossover officially made its world debut in London and there’s already growing confidence among Jaguar execs that it has another hit on its hands with the new E-Pace. The crossover won’t have an easy time at it, though, because it’s entering a market that already features entrenched models like the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA-Class, and Porsche Macan. Don’t expect Jag’s new crossover to shrink away from the competition, not when it has the F-Pace’s pedigree and some technical assistance from Jaguar’s sister company Land Rover, regarded as the godfather of today’s modern crossovers and SUVs. All things considered, the Jaguar E-Pace has all the tools to be as successful as its big brother. The more important question to ask is if it’s good enough for World Car of the Year consideration. It’s too early to say at this point, but the signs are there for the E-Pace to have a similar trajectory as the F-Pace. It just has to prove it’s worth all the hype.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace – Driven

2017 Jaguar F-Pace – Driven

Jaguar jumps into the crossover craze

Back in 2000 when BMW launched the X5, brand loyalists and German enthusiasts call heresy. How could BMW stoop to this? BMW is all about being “the ultimate driving machine.” Well, the naysayers kept taking hits as Audi, Porsche, and other non-SUV-type automakers jumped into the category. Now for 2017, Jaguar is taking the leap.

The F-Pace isn’t some solid-axle, old-school SUV, however. No, Jaguar designed the F-Pace using as much lightweight aluminum and high-strength materials as possible. It’s the same type construction found in Jaguar’s XE and XF sedans. In fact, a third of the F-Pace is made from a propriety aluminum alloy blended together from 75 percent recycled materials.

Inside, the crossover takes after the XE sedan. Fit and finish are all spot-on Jaguar, with all the familiar controls and digital interfaces. The F-Pace isn’t’ without its flaws, however, but I’ll get into that later.

One thing that’s not flawed is the F-Pace’s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6. Yep, it’s the same V-6 found in the F-Type – the F-Pace’s spiritual brother. The V-6 pumps out 380 horsepower in this optional tune. The standard tune dials back the all-aluminum mill to 340 horsepower. And as you can guess, Jaguar wants you to associate the F-Pace with the F-Type. It’s that air of sportiness marketing types want to convey.

So what’s it like to live with the F-Pace for a week? Keep reading to find out.

2017 - 2019 Jaguar F-Pace

2017 - 2019 Jaguar F-Pace

Among the many premieres hitting the spotlights at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the biggest news coming from the Jaguar booth is the arrival of the F-Pace, the carmaker’s first-ever SUV. The new model is expected to heavily complement Jaguar’s existing lineup beginning in 2016.

For those unsure about the "Pace" part of the name, they should be reminded that one of William Lyons’ maxims about the car brand he co-founded. He said that all Jaguar models had to have "grace, pace and space," something that the SUV adheres to. As expected, the SUV’s styling is heavily inspired by the C-X17 line of concept cars that were presented back in 2013. A big reason for that is the overwhelmingly positive response to the 2014 Jaguar C-X17 concept. Knowing it had a hit prototype on its hands, Jaguar continued down that path for the F-Pace.

The result is an SUV that prominently features Jag’s current design language and is complemented by a series of high-powered engines. The company hopes it will serve as a successful springboard as it enters the increasingly competitive SUV segment.

2016 Jaguar F-Pace First Edition

2016 Jaguar F-Pace First Edition

Jaguar’s newest vehicle is a rather large departure from the typical sports car or low-slung luxury sedan the brand is known for. Debuting as the 2014 Jaguar C-X17 concept back at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is set to ignite a fire under the brand. While deliveries of the new sport-tuned SUV are set to begin for the 2016 model year, Jaguar figured it needed more. To that end, the F-Pace is already getting a special edition.

Called the F-Pace First Edition, this special edition comes in very limited numbers – 2,000 units worldwide – and is designed to look like the C-X17 concept.

It’s not clear how many examples Jaguar has allotted for the U.S., though we know the U.K., Jaguar’s spiritual homeland, is only getting 200 units. There is plenty more information, so continue reading for the details.

Jaguar F-Pace Sets World Record For Largest Ever 'Loop The Loop'

Jaguar F-Pace Sets World Record For Largest Ever ’Loop The Loop’

Jaguar celebrated its 80th anniversary this month, and part as part of that celebration, it decided to pull a daring maneuver with its first production family sports car, or SUV, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. The F-Pace was piloted by stunt driver Terry Grant around a 63-foot tall loop, setting a new Guinness world record in the process.

What did it take to accomplish this record-setting feat? Reports say that Terry trained for two months to prepare. He endured both physical and dietary training to ensure his body could handle the three-second journey around the loop, which generated a maximum of 6.5 Gs.

Jaguar Land Rover Will Produce Cars At Magna Steyr's Factory

Jaguar Land Rover Will Produce Cars At Magna Steyr’s Factory

Times are good at Jaguar Land Rover; so good in fact, that the company has announced a partnership with manufacturing and engineering specialist Magna Steyer to outsource production of future vehicles at its factory in Graz, Austria. JLR has successfully doubled sales in the last five years, to over 462,000 units, and its three factories in England are approaching capacity. New factories in Brazil and China will be coming online soon as well, but JLR is projecting the need for even more production capacity.

"The U.K. remains at the center of our design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Partnerships such as this will complement our U.K. operations and engineering," says JLR CEO Dr. Ralf Speth. "Today marks another step towards building our global footprint. This agreement will allow us to expand our award-winning model range as customers around the world demand ever-more innovative vehicles from Jaguar Land Rover."

JLR hasn’t announced which model(s) would be built in Austria, but if the agreement is similar to the ones Magna Steyer has with other companies, it likely means one or two models will be exclusively outsourced. For instance, every Mini Countryman, Mini Paceman and Peugeot RCZ on the road was constructed at Magna Steyer’s facility. Additionally, the company has built every Mercedes-Benz G-Class since its introduction in 1979. In short, it’s a fairly common practice within the industry.

Jaguar's baby F-Pace Could Be Named E-Pace

Jaguar’s baby F-Pace Could Be Named E-Pace

Jaguar is about to launch its first crossover, the 2016 F-Pace, to join the ever-growing SUV market, but the Brits don’t want to stop here. Following rumors that they could also develop a larger SUV under the J-Pace moniker, word now has it a crossover smaller than the F-Pace is on the drawing board as well. Now, Car Magazine reports that this third high-rider could be named the E-Pace and rival the likes of the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Such a crossover would make sense to Jaguar’s bean-counters. The E-Pace would be small enough to share underpinnings with the Range Rover Evoque, which would allow for reduced development and production costs. The same platform, the Land Rover D8, is also used on the new Discovery Sport. The all-steel structure isn’t just relatively cheap to build, but it’s also flexible with body style variations and simple to tweak in terms of engineering.

However, a D8-based E-Pace would mean that this new crossover won’t benefit from Jaguar’s new aluminum-intensive platform for both the upcoming F-Pace and the XE sedan. Unless Jag finds a way to significantly improve the D8 platform, the E-Pace might find it difficult to compete against the X3 and GLC.

The E-Pace is still at least three years away if Jaguar decided to build it, which means plenty of time for the Brits to shift the project toward a lighter platform.

Jaguar Denies It; But Report Indicates The J-Pace Will Arrive In 2019

Jaguar Denies It; But Report Indicates The J-Pace Will Arrive In 2019

No matter how much Jaguar denies the existence of a new crossover being developed to slot in above the upcoming F-Pace, the rumors keep on coming. Unlike previous reports, the latest rumblings on the proposed J-Pace crossover cast a little doubt to Ian Callum’s “categorically, no” response when asked about a larger Jaguar SUV or crossover.

Callum’s statement was in regards to a three-row Jaguar not happening because it wouldn’t be sporty enough. If this latest report from CAR is true, Jaguar’s team has either figured out how to get a three-row crossover to be sporty, or the big crossover won’t have three rows. The latter would be somewhat disappointing since the big Jag will reportedly share a platform with the Range Rover, and offering a third row would be an excellent way to keep these two SUVs from stepping on each other’s toes.

One way it seems that Jaguar SUVs will differentiate its crossovers from Land Rover or other competitors is by making them more performance-oriented than the go-anywhere Land Rover models. The report says that the J-Pace will be offered with two wheelbase options as well as a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and even a high-performance model. Unlike the four-wheel-drive Range Rover, the J-Pace will most likely come standard with rear-wheel drive.

The J-Pace seems to have evolved from the idea of Jaguar growing the lineup of its XJ sedan. A coupe, convertible and shooting brake were all said to have been considered, but it sounds like a J-Pace makes more sense financially following the launch of the F-Pace and the redesign of the XJ in 2018.

Jaguar Focusing On F-Pace; New XK Not A Priority

Jaguar Focusing On F-Pace; New XK Not A Priority

The debut of Jaguar’s first crossover vehicle, the F-Pace, is coming up fast, and with it a fundamental change in the way we think of Jaguar. The CUV is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September, broadening Jaguar’s lineup in an entirely new direction. Car and Driver snatched a moment at the Mille Miglia to chat with Jaguar’s chief designer Ian Callum about the F-Pace and the future of the rest of the Jaguar lineup, and got some surprising tidbits — most notably, that a next-generation XK is "not a priority."

Callum, who’s been behind the design of every modern Jaguar since 1999, said that the F-Pace will be a performance CUV, borrowing from Land Rover’s sport-CUV playbook while riding on a platform that’s unique to Jaguar. As the F-Pace is intended to improve Jaguar’s ability to compete with BMW, Audi and Mercedes, competent handling will be paramount.

Things get interesting when Callum is asked about the next XK. The success of the F-Type has led to speculation that the next XK might be a 2+2 version of that car, and Callum observed that the question has been asked at Jaguar as well. "We’ve got a few ideas," he said. "It’s not a priority." He didn’t elaborate on what Jaguar’s focusing on instead, of course, but did observe that in spite of the foray into the crossover market, "We’re not really in a place to expand any more," in regards tothe possibility of another small Jag. A larger crossover has also been all but ruled out.

Jaguar Plans No SUV Above F-Pace

Jaguar Plans No SUV Above F-Pace

The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace isn’t even out yet, but there is already plenty of talk about other crossovers in the Jaguar lineup. Just recently, a report quoted Jaguar brand director Steven de Ploey as saying that the automaker is “investigating” a smaller crossover, but it doesn’t sound like Jaguar has any plans to move up the CUV ladder.

All but denying reports of a larger, three-row SUV called the J-Pace, Richard Agnew, Jaguar’s global PR director told Motoring that the story was “speculation.” Agnew’s statement backs up that of Jaguar design boss Ian Callum who, at the New York Auto Show, said “categorically, no” when it came to a bigger Jaguar SUV.

Even though such a rumored SUV would have gone up against new vehicles like the Audi Q8, BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS-Class, the majority of growth among crossovers and SUVs is in the compact segment, such as the Porsche Macan and BMW X1. The article says that a sub-F-Pace crossover from Jaguar would require a new platform, and that probably would take until 2020 to complete.

For now, Jaguar is focusing on building a strong core lineup consisting of the redesigned XF sedan and the all-new XE and F-Pace models. Motoring says that the F-Pace will make its big debut on September 4th at a live unveiling at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Jaguar Wants Baby Crossover Placed Under The F-Pace

Crossovers are big business these days as automakers rake in profits from the hot-selling high-riders. Jaguar is no different as it prepares its first crossover, the F-Pace for production in the near future. However, Jaguar appears interested in a second crossover slotted under the F-Pace to help grow the portfolio.

“A family [of SUVs] is not confirmed but we are investigating it,” said Steven de Ploey, Jaguar’s brand director. “We have the architecture and capability with Land Rover to go left or right, up or down, but we’d only do it on two key attributes. The car has to be dynamically the most capable and it has to meet our design standards.”

Meeting those design standards is a big deal for the resurging automaker. Ploey added the crossover must perform as a Jaguar should, saying, “It has to be a Jaguar in design and performance, and it would be a challenge to do this. A challenge it might be, but one Jaguar Land Rover seems competent to accept. Just look at the Range Rover Sport SVR and its high-performance demeanor.

The other issue JLR must sort out is logistics. "You’d not just be competing with premium brands but high-end mainstream manufacturers, too. There are lots of other things we have to do before this, but we have opportunities and permission to play there,” Ploey said. In other words, JLR would likely have to invest in expanding its assembly centers and strengthening its supply chains before commencing production of a second crossover.

The last hurtle Ploey mentions is the vehicle architecture. “We’d need a different architecture. What we have is scalable, but that low? You’d really have to investigate taking it down.” Whatever the outcome, if Jaguar can make its crossover behave like the Range Rover Sport SVR, the automaker will have a grand slam.
