The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is expected to have updated styling, a well polished,and updated interiors with a new infotainment unit. The 5 seater Jaguar is expected to be released around late 2020 and the SUV will most definitely spare no compromise on the luxury front and the R-Dynamic, on the performance side as well.

Jaguar is a British automotive manufacturer that makes luxury vehicles and sports cars. The F-Pace was the brand’s first-ever proper SUV before the introduction of the Jaguar E-Pace. Jaguars were not that popular among the common folks but became a sort of a status symbol. 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 and the new F-Pace is expected to hit the markets late 2020. The F-Pace competes against the Mercedes GLC, BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

What’s new in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic?

The new 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic gets a facelift like the F-Pace R Dynamic and F-type which got it in 2020. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace gets an updated front fascia, improved interiors and a new infotainment unit this time around. 

What about the engine offered in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic?

The Jaguar F-Pace is currently available with 2 engine options, either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 or 3.0-liter supercharged and turbocharged inline-6. The aging V-6 gets replaced by the new 3.0-liter twin-charged inline-6 with this update. The engine is mated with a mild-hybrid setup for the first time and delivers up to 395 horsepower (R-Dynamic). Transmission duties are dealt with an 8-speed ZF automatic powering all four wheels.

Common to all these is an Eight-Speed ZF 8HP70 transmission that is slick in shifting gears and offers very little transmission lag. Gear shifts are mostly smooth and precise and there is very little, to complain about the same. 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. In the torque department, however, Mercedes takes a respectable second place.

What about the mpg figures of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic?

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. Hopeful that it may outweigh its rivals, the Jag is definitely not the best in this comparison, period.

Although Jaguar has paid a lot of attention to boost fuel economy with features such as the stop-start system which works well in traffic, it falls short of the X3 as it delivers a combined mpg of 23 while the X3 manages 26 miles to the gallon. On city drives, expect 22 mpg and 27 mpg on highways. Talking of the range, it’s again the BMW that takes the lead with its better fuel economy.

How’s the Exterior styling of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic?

The styling of the Jaguar is one of its strong points. The F-Pace R Dynamic has clean lines running along its body which is in fact the longest here. In terms of presence, the width of the SUV is used brilliantly to portray class and elegance while ensuring a sporty and retro appeal. With the 2021 model, the F-Pace boasts an updated front fascia with Ultra-slim, all-LED quad headlights with “Double J Blade” daytime running light signatures, the same design language as the new F-Pace R Dynamic. Sleeker headlamps paired with slimmer taillights and R-Dynamic accents will give the Jaguar F-pace an unmistakable curb appeal.
