2023 Jaguar F-Pace price, specs, and features
The 2023 Jaguar F-Pace is a compact luxury SUV that starts at around $52,400. The F-Pace comes standard with a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine capable of producing 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.
This engine is available on both the base F-Pace and the F-Pace S models. If you upgrade to the R-Dynamic S model, you get a 3.0L twin-charged inline six-cylinder engine that uses a turbo and a supercharger to produce 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.
Finally, the top-of-the-line SVR model comes equipped with a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine which outputs 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Every engine option is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard.
The F-Pace is a luxury compact SUV. With that luxury designation, there are a significant number of standard features to be found in the cabin. Some of these features in the 2023 F-Pace include an 11.4-inch touchscreen with wireless smartphone integration and charging and a 12-speaker audio system.
Standard safety features include a rearview camera, forward collision warning with automatic braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic high-beam headlights.
Available safety features include adaptive cruise control with lane centering, adaptive speed limiter, parking assist, and a heads-up display. When properly equipped, the 2023 F-Pace is capable of towing 5,291 pounds, and the V8-equipped SVR model is capable of a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds.
Which vehicles outpaced the F-Pace?
While the 2023 F-Pace is an excellent vehicle, it did only score an 8.0 overall from U.S. News. The most significant issues U.S. News found with the F-Pace involved the SUV’s high starting price which can reach nearly $90,000 for a fully loaded model.
Another issue was the F-Pace’s poor fuel economy due to its performance-focused engines. This 8.0 rating put the F-Pace eighth in its class of luxury compact SUVs.
Ranking higher than the F-Pace is the Volvo XC60, Lincoln Corsair, Mercedes GLB, Acura RDX, Mercedes GLC, BMW X3, and Genesis GV70. All of these higher-ranking vehicles have many of the same characteristics as the 2023 F-Pace but are more affordable. The only vehicles found in the luxury compact SUV class that cost more than the F-Pace are the Porsche Macan and the BMW X4.
Is this luxury SUV worth it?
If you can find a deal on a 2023 Jaguar F-Pace, don’t let the price tag bring you down. The F-Pace is a luxury SUV with performance that matches some of the world’s best sports cars.
When these performance numbers are combined with the capability of towing over 5,000, you have a classy luxury vehicle that can do it all.
