The Jaguar F-Pace will officially be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Revealing some more details on the British automaker’s new SUV, Jaguar promises that the F-Pace “will bring new levels of dynamic ability to the brand when it goes on sale in 2016, after debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.”
Teased numerous times and even shown in concept form, the F-Pace is developed on Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminum Architecture and is designed to handle with precision and control without sacrificing ride comfort. Jaguar revealed that the F-Pace will have a sophisticated double wishbone front suspension while the rear is an Integral Link suspension.
Incorporating technology from the Jaguar F-Type, the new SUV features a similar electric power-assisted steering system that offers drivers greater feedback and control compared to a hydraulic system. It will also feature the same torque vectoring by braking technology that was first developed for the F-Type with a torque on-demand all-wheel-drive system.
“We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-Pace had to be a true Jaguar and had to deliver the dynamics DNA,” said Mike Cross, chief engineer of vehicle integrity at Jaguar. “We’ve tested ride and handling to the limit, and the result is that the new F-Pace is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is comfortable and quiet. As soon as you get into the vehicle you know immediately that it’s a good place to be.”
