Jaguar signed his chit and joined the country club “Brilliant and Fast SUV” on Monday when he unveiled the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.
The high-test, high-riding sports SUV makes 550 horsepower and 502 foot-pounds of its supercharged 5.0-liter supercharged V8.
With four wheels, the F-Pace SVR sprints up to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, en route to a top speed of 176 mph. The SVR is Jaguar’s first performance SUV and adapts to an already crowded elite set with the Mercedes-AMG GLC63, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and Porsche Macan Turbo, as well as the BMW X3 M and Audi RS Q5 models at come .
A Land Rover Range Rover SVR Velar should soon join the crowd.
The F-Pace SVR gets a bigger snout than the rest of the F-Pace range that helps the SVR V-8 breathe. Larger exhaust outlets and a lighter, lighter exhaust help the F-Pace to vent as well, driving the SVR soundtrack in its wake.
The hood vents help the SVR vent more hot air under the hood, and the new vent slots help cool and reduce lift on the front wheels.
At the rear wheels, Jaguar added an electronic rear differential that shifts the torque to the outer wheels for a better bend and helps the F-Pace SVR to better fit on its rear wheel – the first high power SUV with a “drift mode”? Jaguar says its dynamic mode shifts faster on the gears, boosts steering and sharpens the throttle to extract the maximum performance from a 2-tonne SUV.
The SVR carries larger wheels 21 or 22 inches up to 1 inch wider with more sticky tires than the F-Pace.
The little things add up: Jaguar says the wheels cut up to 17 pounds of total weight, and the exhaust is 14.5 pounds lighter than the standard system. Dozens of pounds of total weight may not radically change the performance, but the big V-8 anyway skips SVR F-Pace speed to extra-legal speeds. Upgraded front brakes 15.5 inches front and 15.6 inches rear stop any return within legal limits.
Jag has stiffened the F-Pace SVR to handle power and provide better grip with firmer front and rear springs, 30% and 10% respectively, and stronger anti-roll bars help keep it flat.
The “SVR” badge is the highest in Jaguar’s Den, and the pinnacle of production in the Special Vehicle Operations Division. The Jaguar F-Type also carries a SVR badge in its halo edition.
Inside, the SVR has deeper front and rear seats, and the latest Jaguar infotainment system that stacks two 10-inch screens one over the other for infotainment and vehicle control systems .
Like the SVR F-Type, the SVR 2019 F-Pace does not come at a lower cost. When it goes on sale later this year, the Jag’s hot crossover starts at $ 80,985, including the destination.
