The past few Jaguar F-Pace iterations haven’t impressed many critics. They had too many concerns about the vehicle’s comfort level, challenging infotainment system, and noise levels for their liking. 

However, this year’s model appears to be different. MotorTrend actually likes this one, so Jaguar must’ve done something right for 2021. So, what does the new F-Pace offer, and what will you have to pay to get one?

What’s new with the Jaguar F-Pace this year?

The F-Pace is Jaguar’s first SUV, which debuted in 2017. For the 2021 model year, the automaker upgraded the exterior and interior to offer a fresh new model. 

One major change is the addition of a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The standard model still gets a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, but the more powerful four-cylinder from the previous model year is gone. Now, Jaguar has replaced the supercharged V6 with an electrically supercharged inline-six.

Another big change comes inside with the infotainment system. It’s been a bit of a disappointment in the past. But now, the F-Pace boasts a whole new display and a large screen similar to what you’d find in a Tesla.

Also, the 11.4-inch display now sits above the dash and sports a slight curve to eliminate glare. And it’s much brighter than before, making it easier to see what you’re doing on the touchscreen. 

Pricing for the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace

The 2020 model came in a whopping 12 versions ranging from $46,000 to $82,000, MotorTrend reports. This model year offers far fewer trims to choose from. Prices range from about $51,000 to $86,000. 

With the base-model F-Pace, you get a handful of standard amenities. They include a panoramic glass roof, satellite radio, heated front seats, and a larger touchscreen for the infotainment system. The price for this trim runs around $51,000. The top-trim SVR starts at around $84,000. 

Extras in the F-Pace include the Hot Climate Pack, which offers a cabin ionizer and a four-zone climate control unit. Adding this package cost about $2,110 extra. 

Another available package is the Premium Upgrade Interior. It offers higher-grade leather and an oyster headliner. This package costs an additional $2,220.

Is this luxury compact SUV worth the sticker price?


Shut Out the Outside World in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace

MotorTrend’s reviewers think that with the upgrades, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is more appealing to consumers who want splashy accouterments with performance. They might be right — the new infotainment system alone makes this model attractively priced. 

But there’s more to the F-Pace than meets the eye. Its new noise-cancellation feature is another reason to love this SUV. The ride is now much quieter than before, shielding occupants from outside noises. 

However, the non-hybrid model’s fuel economy is pretty average, with 20 mpg in the city and 26-27 mpg on the highway. Performance isn’t bad either: It can go from 0 to 60 mph in under seven seconds. 

Overall, each Jaguar F-Pace trim offers the right number of features for the price, whether you want every amenity or only a few.
