Under the hood of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine that can produce 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. All set to ignite new fires with its rejuvenated vigor to the segment, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace demands some major attention as it brings about a whirlwind of change. And with this new frenzy of re-alignment of the lineup, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace has stirred up a storm amongst its competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and the Mercedes Benz GLC Class. So, let's find out what kind of performance does the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace has to offer to its buyers.

What powertrain does the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace get?

Under the hood of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is the home to the 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine that can churn out a total of 246 hp and a peak torque of 269 lb-ft. The powertrain comes in perfect harmony with an 8-speed automatic that does a great job of taming the powertrain and cycling through the gears to put the power to the wheels via the standard AWD drivetrain. Compared to last year, one of the most welcome changes is the dropping off the RWD drivetrain since the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is the tastiest with the AWD.

If you want more power, you will have to upgrade to either the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace S, 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S, or the all-powerful 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR, all of which come with different powertrains and hence offer varying power, and peak-out at 550 hp in the SVR. That being said, the standard powertrain and transmission also perform a great job as it cycles through the gears with fluidity both up and down the geartrain and allows you to enjoy the ride thoroughly.

Compared to the rest, the Jaguar F-Pace, unfortunately, languishes out in the bottom part of the lineup as the Audi Q5 steps up its game and occupies the top spot. The Mercedes Benz GLC-Class stays true to its overperformance roots and comes in the second spot while the BMW X3 safely chips in for the third place. Another thing that works against the case of the F-Pace is that its price tag is higher than all of its adversaries. 

How fast can the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace complete the 0-60 MPH?

Since the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is not as powerful as its SVR sibling, expecting stellar 0-60 MPH figures would be for naught as the ride can complete the 0-60 MPH sprint in 6.9 seconds and the quarter-mile in 15.4 seconds. For most, this is more than acceptable as track-ripping performance is certainly not what's on offer with the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace for its asking price.

There are various drive modes that allow you to tap into the full potential of harnessing those 246 ponies under the hood. And with the Dynamic mode switched on, the 2021 F-Pace will understand what you want exactly and prance forward with a sense of urgency as you are thrust back into your seat. Despite what you might think, the ride actually feels light on its feet and makes you feel like it's going faster than it actually is.

Considering the competition it garners and the power each one has, it's more than evident that this outcome was expected where the Audi Q5 occupies the top spot. The BMW X3 comes in next while the Mercedes Benz GLC-Class follows suit in the third-place owing to the weight of luxuries it adorns in spite of being the lightest one here. Despite the weight loss spree, the Jaguar F-Pace is not as vigorous as expected and languishes in the last place.

Are the brakes capable of going from 60-0 MPH efficiently?

One of the most imperative parts that have been tuned for the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is the brakes that get 12.8-inch rotors both in the front and rear. Thanks to this very approach, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace can stop from 60-0 MPH in a stopping distance of 113 feet

ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution is standard fitment as the ride possesses the characteristic to inspire confidence in the driver. Furthermore, the brake pedal is well-weighted throughout the actuation range and offers a very linear feel and hence a linear braking performance that allows for a non-jittery experience even under harsh conditions.

The Mercedes Benz GLC is the lightest one in the lineup and hence that clearly shows in the braking performance as it quickly springs to the top spot. The Audi Q5 loses its winning streak here and is bumped to second place while the Jaguar F-Pace climbs up the ladder to finally place third in the lineup. The BMW X3 loses its standing on the podium due to a marginally longer stopping distance.

How are the drive experience and handling of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace?

To stay true to the fact of a mid-cycle refresh, the brand has tried to make the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace as driver-centric as possible. The engine has been refined while the steering and suspension systems have also been reworked. The steering wheel comes to life from the first time the car starts to roll on the surface and the suspensions perform a marvelous job of keeping it stable at all surfaces and conditions. Despite being an SUV crossover, the ride handles like a smaller vehicle at times due to its nifty handling. All of the road imperfections as smoothed out while the interiors keep things serene and calm at all times.

Even as you cut a sharp corner, the ride will surely make sure to give you that full-fledged experience of diving in deep into the curve, kissing the apex, and come out of it with a wide grin on your face and adrenaline riding high. Add to that the wide-set build and the 19-inch wheels with the all-season tires that stick to the road like glue, even when you don't have a lot of traction on icy or rainy days. Another highlight of this wheel size is that the ground clearance is bumped up to 8.4-inches that allows you to go-offroad just as easily and conveniently as you stay on it.

What MPG figures does the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace offer?

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is on a mission to turn the tide with changes all around, however, in terms of the fuel efficiency and MPG figures it offers, the story remains the same. Despite the surge in the price, the ride offers 22 MPG in the city, 27 MPG on the highway, and 24 MPG combined. The silver lining comes in the fact that it gets a segment-leading fuel tank capacity of 21.7-gallon that allows you to extract out a total combined range of 521 miles.

Compared to the rest, the Jaguar F-Pace is out in the rough as all of the others are more fuel-efficient with the BMW X3 leading the charge with its great MPG figures. The Audi Q5 follows the Bimmer as the next torchbearer while the Mercedes Benz GLC-Class still has a thing or two to learn in order to beat the other two. That being said, the Merc still manages to find itself among the better ones in terms of fuel economy.

Is the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace a good performer?

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is a jack of all trades and offers pretty much everything in terms of performance that you could ask for in a ride at this price. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is versatile, robust, well tamed, and keeps the driver's comfort and fun at front and center with the way its interiors are laid out and the way it performs on the tarmac. Furthermore, its fuel economy is still acceptable enough to suffice for the overall package that it offers in its price.
Hence, if you want a distinctively luxurious daily driver that also packs the punch to thrill, then the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is surely worth a look.
