Jaguar has released yet another set of F-Pace photos, teasing the crossover before it debuts at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
The photos show the F-Pace during extreme weather testing, from the blistering cold of Northern Sweden to the sweltering heat of Dubai.
For cold-weather testing, Jaguar turned to its test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, where the average winter temperatures rarely exceed 5-degrees Fahrenheit and can drop to as low as -40. The facility has over 37 miles of purpose-built handling tracks, mountain climbs, inclines, split-friction straights and off-road areas so that Jaguar can test the calibration of its all-wheel drive system, Dynamic Stability Control and All-Surface Progress Control.

At the other extreme was hot-weather testing in Dubai, where ambient temperatures can exceed 122-degrees Fahrenheit in the shade. According to Jaguar, cabin temperatures can reach as high as 158-degrees Fahrenheit when vehicles are left in direct sunlight, helping test the climate control systems and infotainment functions in extreme heat and humidity.

“We developed the F-PACE to offer the ride, handling and refinement demanded from a Jaguar, together with exceptional levels of ability and composure on all surfaces and in all weathers,” said Andrew Whyman, Vehicle Program Director for Jaguar F-Pace. “Just as we paid obsessive attention to detail over the engineering of every single component, we’ve exhaustively tested the F-PACE in the most challenging conditions to ensure that it will exceed the expectations of our customers around the world.”
