2021 Jaguar F-Pace

2021 Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar has introduced the 2021 F-Pace with some external tweaks, revised interior, and new engines under the hood

Jaguar has refreshed the F-Pace for 2021 model year, and it comes with quite a few changes. While the changes are subtle on the outside - so subtle that a layman won’t even notice it – the automaker has rejigged the cabin. The old screen is swapped with a new, larger touchscreen infotainment system, and there are new engine options available under the hood, including a hybrid that offers up to 33 miles of electric range. Will this help elevate the Jaguar F-Pace in such a competitive segment?

2021 Jaguar XJ EV

2021 Jaguar XJ EV

Not much is known, but the all-electric XJ is currently under development

It’s no secret that Jaguar has eyes on launching an all-electric version of the XJ sedan, and just as we started lamenting the lack of tangible evidence of an all-electric XJ, a batch of spy photos fell on our laps and, lo and behold, we get our first look and what looks to be the all-electric XJ.

Granted, the spy photos don’t show the heavily wrapped sedan doing blitzing test runs, but, rather, they show the sedan getting transported to an undisclosed location where it could potentially do those blitzing test runs. We’ll take our victories where we can get them, though, and this batch of spy photos is validation — to a certain extent, at least — that the Jaguar XJ EV is actually a real thing. Expect more spy photos to come in the near future. Hopefully, those photos will show the sedan with its wheels touching the ground.

Update 3/9/2020: The Jaguar XJ EV Prototype has finally be spotted. Check out the first set of prototype spy shots in our special “Spy Shot” section below!

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type has been quietly revealed via Jaguar’s media page – although there was no live stream or any cool stunts, we have to admit that the 2021 model does offer significant improvement over the current model, including revised exterior lighting, updated technology inside, and a decent uptick in power output as well.

2021 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

2021 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Jaguar’s sleek people carrier is in for a new face and tweaked internals

Despite being busy adding the finishing touches on the refreshed F-Pace and F-Type, Jaguar isn’t forgetting about the XF Sportbrake. The sporty wagon is also in line to receive a mid-life revamp, and chances are Jaguar will go for the same approach it used on the XE: a comprehensive exterior redesign coupled with cabin tweaks and some changes in the powertrain department.

Our carparazzi have spotted the XF Sportbrake in test mule form, hiding under a lot of camouflage, but we can still tell you a thing or two about what’s in store for Jag’s executive wagon, despite the fact that the interior remains a mystery for now. Here’s everything we’re are expecting from the facelifted 2021 Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

2020 Jaguar F-Pace

2020 Jaguar F-Pace

The F-Pace is in line for a bunch of cosmetic changes and possibly a mild-hybrid powertrain to complement the existing engines

The Jaguar F-Pace arrived late to the SUV/crossover party. With it, the Indian-owned British carmaker had the intent of crashing the said party, but things didn’t quite go as planned. Although zippy on the asphalt and rather spacious, the F-Pace found it difficult to break the BMW-Mercedes-Audi-Porsche quartet: BMW has the spirited driving baked into every SUV it churns out, Mercedes-Benz relies heavily on comfort and plushness, while Audi ticks the material quality and hi-tech design boxes first and foremost, and Porsche kind of has everything. The Volvo XC60 is also lurking around, as is the Range Rover Velar. Yet a new set of spy shots hints at a redesigned F-Pace. Has Jaguar learned its lesson? Stick with us to find out.

2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR

2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR

Jag’s first SUV gets special treatment

Jaguar introduced the F-Pace compact luxury crossover back in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, eventually bringing it stateside in May of 2016. Lauded by critics as both beautiful and opulent (and when equipped with a supercharged V-6, pretty quick too), the F-Pace is the right machine for a segment overflowing with demand. Now, Jag’s first-ever SUV gets the go-faster treatment courtesy of JLR’s performance and customization division, Special Vehicle Operations (SVO). Making its debut at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, the F-Pace SVR is framed as a combination of sports car performance and practical SUV design, adding two cylinders, loads of extra power, a fresh aesthetic, and a whole lot more over the standard model.

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

The British midsize wagon returns and it’s coming to America!

Introduced in 2007 to replace the ageing S-Type, the Jaguar XF was redesigned for the 2016 model year. The makeover brought an evolutionary restyling but turned the four-door sedan in a sportier proposition on the outside and a more luxurious vehicle on the inside. The XF also received new drivetrains, most notably the company’s recently launched 2.0-liter four-cylinder in both gasoline and diesel formats. The 3.0-liter V-6 was also carried over, but with significant upgrades. Unlike the first-generation model, the second-gen XF arrived without a wagon version. This changed for the 2018 model year when Jaguar launched a redesigned XF Sportbrake.

Making things that much better, it’s available in the U.S. too!

The Sportbrake’s return is a bit surprising, especially since Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design, once predicted the death of the station wagon. But, while I’d like to know what made him change his mind, I’m actually glad that the Sportbrake is back in dealerships and especially in the U.S., where the midsize market was limited to just two models, with a couple more available in other niches. Sure, it’s still ridiculous, but with three different products in the premium market, we finally have some proper action going on.

Jaguar F-Type by B&B Automobiltechnik

Jaguar F-Type by B&B Automobiltechnik

German tuner presents plenty of tuning options for Jag’s resident performance ride

The Jaguar F-Type has been called many things, and as the ultimate sports car in the Jaguar family, it bears a lot of responsibility to make a good impression on the auto industry. To Jag’s credit, it prepared the F-Type to do just that and a lot of people have taken notice. That includes the tuning world, as is the case with German tuner B&B Automobiltechnik, which has a new tuning program for the F-Type. This kit is as extensive as they come as it offers plenty of engine upgrade packages for three different variants of the F-Type. The range-topper of the lot, the F-Type SVR, headlines the list with a package that brings an output of 645 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

In addition, B&B is also offering engine upgrade packages for the F-Type V8 S and the F-Type R with each program designed to net more power and performance out of the Jag sports car. Chassis and suspension modifications are also being offered, as is a new set of 21-inch wheels. All of these upgrades meet a certain standard that we’ve come to know from B&B Automobiltechnik.

Owners of the F-Type should take note of what B&B Automobiltechnik is offering for the Jaguar F-Type. As the face of the British automaker’s performance lineup, the F-Type and all of its variants have to live up to the expectations that have been set for it. These upgrades from B&B help Jag meet those expectations.

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.
