The Jaguar F-Pace has been the brand’s best-selling model for quite some time, so it should be of no surprise when Jaguar decided to give a proper facelift to the SUV. Hence, we have the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV. Although this car used to sell like hotcakes, the customers were always let down by the interiors which felt a bit drab. So Jaguar decided to flip the script and finally, you have some pretty desirable interiors.

Jaguar also took this opportunity to make some changes with the stuff under the hood so now you have new Mild-Hybrid powertrains and some four-cylinder engine options. Though many would appreciate the updated powertrains since it is the R-Dynamic variant we are discussing here, it is the refreshed interiors that take the spotlight in this update.

Owning a Mercedes or a BMW or even an Audi can feel like the same but there is something special in owning a Jag. The Jaguar F-Pace came with minor upgrades to make it stay new in the market. The classic brit starts from $46,500 in the base avatar and the new F-Pace is expected to hit the markets late 2020. Rivals of the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic are the BMW X3, the Mercedes-AMG GLC43, and the Porsche Macan.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Pricing and Features

9.0/10

The Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV is a single trim in of itself. A mild hybrid 3.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged six-cylinder is at the heart of this trim, it is the top of the range trim of the F-PACE line-up until the SVR rolls out.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Don’t expect the car to be more reliable than the rest of the everyday cars you see. Especially after Jaguar as a manufacturer has landed almost near the bottom of the Reliability Surveys done online. This fact does not provide any peace of mind, to be frank, but rest assured you can at least put your faith in the engines as they have been tried and tested and have been around for a while. Although not the most reliable of the ones out there, still Jaguar has come a long way since the old days of unreliable motoring.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

Talking specifically about the F-PACE, this car has landed on the bottom of the reliability surveys and charts repeatedly. Consumer Reports made a list of the least reliable vehicles and the F-PACE landed on the top of that list. But Jaguar has looked at that aspect and have doubled down on the quality. That is proved by the fact that there are 0 recalls for the model year 2020. The true cost to own a Jaguar F-PACE for a length of 4 years and 15,000 miles driven per year is $126,978.

Warranty

There is no news about any changes with the warranty package, so it should get the same warranty package as the previous car. since Jaguar has a really sketchy reputation with the reliability hence, they hope to make up for it through the warranty package. Unsurprisingly, the warranty package offered is the best in the segment, especially the complimentary scheduled maintenance program which is quite lengthy.

Criteria

Period

Limited warranty

5 yr./ 60,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain warranty

5 yr./ 60,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Complimentary scheduled maintenance

5 yr./ 60,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Miles Per Dollar

Since we do not have a proper break up of the costs involved with the ownership of the F-Pace, we cannot come to a conclusive MPD ratio. As mentioned above, the total cost of owning the F-Pace over a period of 4 years is around the $126,000 mark.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Buying Advice

Since it is a single time in of itself, there is no dilemma as such when it comes to choosing. Jaguar is yet to give more details about any special packages but they can very well make their way to the line-up.

Is buying a used car Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV a good idea?

2021 is a facelift of the F-PACE SUV, so anyone choosing an older vehicle will be missing out on a lot of new technology, interiors, and performance as it is mostly a different car altogether. It is best advised to stay clear of used F-Paces or Jaguars in general, mainly due to their atrocious maintenance costs once out of warranty.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Engine and Performance

8.0/10

Until the 2021 F-Pace SVR arrives, the R-Dynamic S 400 remains the flagship trim, and that carries forward to the powertrain as well. So, the power duties are handled by a 3.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged inline-6 with mild-hybrid tech making 400 hp and 406 lb-ft. The electric compressor helps with the turbocharger boost at low revs.

Apart from standard all-wheel-drive, there is a bevy of driving modes offered; they make changes to the throttle response, adjust the steering, and optional adaptive dampers. The all-wheel-drive helps weather-proofing the car apart from the obvious performance reasons handling all that power. Jaguar has stepped ahead of the competition with the power and torque figures courtesy to their twin-charged mild-hybrid unit.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV Acceleration And Braking Performance

An 8-speed automatic sends all the torque to all the wheels as standard. The gearbox can pull the F-Pace to some respectable 0-60 times. The all-wheel-drive system is however rear-biased but it can vary the torque almost instantly depending on the situation.

Pitching the Jaguar against its rivals and you will find that it's way ahead of all its rivals by quite some margin, in terms of power figures. The AMG GLC43 is the quickest to 60 while the X3 has the highest top speed.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The EPA rated fuel economy for the Jaguar F-Pace is 24 mpg combined (2.0-liter unit). For 2021, the introduction of the mild-hybrid setup would enhance the fuel efficiency of the SUV but, we are yet to receive the stats for the R-Dynamic.

Expect decent figures from the R-Dynamic since it houses start/stop and the rudimentary Eco mode. The X3 should be your pick for interstate trips as it has the best range in the competition. Porsche offers an appalling economy figure, given it isn’t that powerful, it should’ve done better in this aspect.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Interior

8.2/10

This is by far the biggest talking point about this update as most would agree that the interiors in the old car were seriously outdated. You are greeted with a totally redesigned dashboard with a new infotainment screen sitting atop. A conventional gear lever now replaces the rotary dial gear shifter from before.

The cabin now features much better finishes all around; materials include open-pore wood veneers and aluminum. Twist knobs are provided to control the temperature as well as the seating heating/ventilation functions. Lots of soft-to-touch have been sewn with great attention-to-detail on the armrests, doors, and the dashboard. The seats now have a broader cushioning, and they also have heating/ventilation functions and well as massage functionality. The X3 also has the most room as it seems, so it’s the best for spending those long hours in. That said, everyone except the Macan is pretty good in terms of space offered inside.

How’s the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV’s infotainment system?

The 11.4-inch curved-glass display serves as the main infotainment display along with a 12.3-inch serving as the digital instrument cluster. The infotainment system in charge is the Jaguar’s new Pivi Pro. Jaguar says that this infotainment is quite intuitive, any function that frequently needs to be accessed in just one or two taps away. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration come as standard and so does connecting two phones simultaneously with Bluetooth.

The digital gauge cluster features enhanced graphics and it features navigation in a full-screen mode for better clarity. The curved display too looks really elegant cased in magnesium alloy sitting in the middle and is miles better than the old 10.0-inch unit. A head-up display is offered, too. the system stays 4G and not 5G which people are beginning to see in the tech world. The standard features at a glance

  • 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen
  • 14-speaker Meridian sound system
  • Pivi Pro infotainment system
  • SiriusXM radio functionality

9.9/10

The changes for the exteriors are quite subtle but they are noticeable; and that may not necessarily be a bad thing. The headlights are now smaller and now incorporate LED headlights. The ‘Double J Blade’ daytime running lights feature a J-pattern as the name suggests, the taillights are almost similar to the old one but the internal electronics have been changed. A new fascia now complements the rear, and so is mostly at the front. The hood and grille work much better together now visually as the grille has been enlarged.

The bumper vents are bigger too as a result and this makes the SUV sit a bit wider than before. Incorporating the iconic Jaguar "leaper" logo is the fender vents that are all new for this car. and since it is the R-Dynamic S 400, integrated exhaust outlets are featured and the rear bumper is redesigned as well. A 21-inch wheel is an option you can now have with the SUV. The F-Pace is almost the lightest of the bunch, owing to the plenty of aluminum being used in making the F-Pace. All the cars have pretty similar lengths and wheelbases but the extra width in the F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV should help with the interior space.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Safety

9.5/10

There are plenty of safety features that are now a part of the safety package in the F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV, such as the new active noise cancellation and engine noise cancellation. Special mention should be given to another new feature which is named Clear Exit Monitor, it alerts you while exiting the car if there is any traffic, or for that matter, any bicyclist who might crash with you or with the opened door.

The standard safety features are discussed as below

  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • rear cross-traffic alert
  • active noise cancellation
  • engine noise cancellation
  • keyless entry
  • High Beam Assist
  • 3D Surround Camera
  • ClearSight Plan View
  • 3D Perspective View
  • Junction View

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Competition

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV Vs BMW X3

The X3 is also heavily updated for 2021, so it is a neck-to-neck competition with one of its arch-rivals. Like the F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400, a lot of new safety and comfort technology makes its way into the car. the car is set to launch in fall 2020 and it will be costlier than the outgoing models.

BMW X3

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV Vs Mercedes-AMG GLC43

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 is there to provide a spicy driving experience but wants to bathe you in its typical Germanic luxury. You are greeted by some bracing acceleration complimented by some keen handling. Matters on the inside are stylish as well as spacious. Things began to falter at the cargo space, and the Jaguar is far more refined and quieter.

Mercedes-AMG GLC43

2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic SE SUV Final Verdict

The refreshed 2021 Jaguar F-PACE R-Dynamic S 400 SUV is finally here, and it is better than ever. For years, the customers were not happy with the drab interiors and Jaguar has finally done something about it and made them interiors not only look good but futuristic as well. The interior materials have a lot better quality than before, what remains to be seen how Jaguar manages to keep up with the reliability which has been a concern in the previous years.

Pros - Seats are power-adjustable, space, storage cubbies, SiriusXM.

Cons - Gas guzzling V8, costly options.

One of the most reliable options. My RSQ8 is the best when it comes to the power but the way it delivers it is smooth and comfortable with easy to drive. The handling is good and it moves effortlessly in traffic as well in congested spaces. The infotainment screen is big, bright, and responsive. The interior is good. It is Spacious and airy. Seats are comfortable, and it has a number of good features as standard. Bulky styling The brakes work fantastically, which I feel makes me feel safer, rather than trying to rely on airbags, and belts. Excels in almost all conditions. Got a good deal so I? happy with what I paid. good team of staff
