    2018 Jaguar E-Pace Hopes To Strike Lightning Twice

    Sign in to follow this  

      Arrives early next year

    The Jaguar F-Pace has proven to be quite the success, selling 9,559 units through June and sitting on top of the company's sales charts. Jaguar hopes they can strike gold once again with the 2018 E-Pace that made its debut today.

    Compared to the F-Pace, the E-Pace is about foot shorter in overall length. Many design cues from the F-Pace are here such as a tall beltline, sculpted rear fenders, an F-Type-inspired rear tailgate, and slim taillights. The interior looks to be directly lifted from F-Type with a similar center stack layout - including the grab handle on the passenger side. All models get a 10-inch touchscreen with the latest version of Jaguar Land Rover's InTouch Pro infotainment system and two USB ports - optional is each seat getting a USB port.

    The U.S. will get a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four in two states of tune; 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque or 296 and 295 if you opt for the R-Dynamic. Power flows through a nine-speed automatic to all four wheels. 0-60 takes 6.6 seconds with the standard 2.0L and 5.9 seconds with the R-Dynamic. 

    Interestingly, the E-Pace isn't based on the platform that underpins the F-Pace. Instead, it uses the same platform that you'll find under the Range Rover Evoque. Jaguar has made some changes to it to make it feel more Jaguar-y with a multi-link suspension setup for the front and rear, stiffer bushings, and a set of anti-roll bars. An optional Configurable Dynamics package will bring adaptive dampers to tune the ride to your liking.

    The E-Pace arrives in the U.S. early next year with a base price of $39,595 with destination.

    (LONDON, U.K.) – July 13, 2017 - The new Jaguar E-PACE has set an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ title during its world premiere. The compact performance SUV leapt into the record books with a 50 foot-long jump, complete with a 270-degree corkscrew-like ‘barrel roll’.

    Demonstrating the agility, precision and performance of the newest Jaguar SUV, the feat was the final test for E-PACE after 25 grueling months of work across four continents to test extreme durability and that it lived up to the Jaguar ‘Art of Performance’ philosophy.

    The Jaguar E-PACE is a five-seat, compact SUV that packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a practical and connected all-wheel drive vehicle.

    Trademark Jaguar driving dynamics and design put the brand’s sports car DNA in a practical design, packed with advanced technologies to keep you connected. The E-PACE is the newest member of the Jaguar SUV family, joining the all electric I-PACE Concept and the 2017 World Car of the Year winner, the Jaguar F-PACE, which was launched in 2015 with a spectacular GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ setting loop-the-loop.

    The E-PACE exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car and characterized by the distinctive Jaguar grill, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give the vehicle a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating its dynamic agility. Jaguar sports car DNA is also evident in the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window design.
     
    Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, “Established Jaguar design principles ensure the E-PACE is immediately recognizable as the sports car of its class. Our new compact SUV combines the interior space, connectivity and security that families expect with the kind of proportions, purity of design and performance not usually associated with such a practical vehicle.”

    The E-PACE completed its world record jump at ExCeL in London – one of only a handful of venues in the UK big enough to accommodate the 525-foot run-up and run-off, vital for the 50-foot leap. Behind the wheel was stunt driver Terry Grant, who has completed stunts on many film sets and holds an impressive 21 GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ titles.

    Grant said, “As far as I am aware, no production car has ever cleanly completed a bona-fide barrel roll and therefore it has always been an ambition of mine to perform one ever since I was a boy. After driving the Jaguar F-PACE in the record-breaking loop-the-loop, it has been amazing to help launch the next chapter of the PACE family in an even more dramatic dynamic feat.”

    Unsurprisingly, the barrel roll is not one to be tried at home. Months of testing and analysis were completed to fine-tune the stunt, including achieving precisely the correct speed of run-up. The ramps were modeled extensively using CAD before any jumps took place. Terry experienced a G-Force of 5.5 during the 270 degree twist, and required a 525-foot run up to hit the air at the correct speed.

    Guinness World Record™ adjudicator Pravin Patel said, “This amazing feat really was a sight to behold.
    While I’ve seen the barrel roll stunt in film, witnessing this incredible feat in real life was something pretty
    special. Congratulations to Terry and Jaguar for setting another epic Guinness World Record ™ title.”
    The reveal of the E-PACE was followed by a spectacular musical performance by Pete Tong & The
    Heritage Orchestra who presented the now legendary Ibiza Classics.
     
    As a celebration of the new Jaguar
    E-PACE, Pete collaborated with singer-songwriter Raye to perform “You Don’t Know Me” by Jax Jones -
    a hit that features Raye and has over 230 million plays on Spotify and over 130 million YouTube views.
    Tong said, "I've been working with the Heritage Orchestra for the past couple of years but this is the first
    time I've been involved in something like this, it's very exciting and I'm glad to be a part of it! Jaguar
    breaking the Guinness World Record for the barrel roll was mind-blowing. This creative approach to
    revealing the new Jaguar E-PACE was the inspiration behind the collaboration between myself and Raye
    and we are now planning to put the track on my new album."
     

    The Jaguar E-PACE: Connected, Intelligent, Agile, Responsive

    The Jaguar E-PACE is connected and intelligent. A 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes as
    standard and connects customers to their favorite apps, including Spotify. The standard InControl Remote
    & Protect system automatically alerts emergency services in case of an accident and allows you to check
    fuel levels and mileage remotely via a smartphone or smartwatch. Customers can also warm up the
    vehicle or cool it down via their smartphone as part of this system.

    Digital connectivity can be found throughout the cabin, ready for every need of the modern family. There
    are up to four 12-volt charging points and five USB connections as well as an optional 4G Wi-Fi hotspot
    for up to eight devices.

    The compact SUV can seat five in comfort with generous rear legroom, while the large luggage space is
    made possible by the vehicle’s sophisticated Integral Link rear suspension architecture.

    The optional Configurable Dynamics system gives the driver even more control with individual settings for
    the throttle, automatic transmission, steering, and, where fitted, the Adaptive Dynamics suspension
    system3. The optional Adaptive Dynamics system is designed to sense driver input, body and wheel
    movements and pre-emptively loads the suspension and chassis and adjusts the damping for improved
    roll control and agility.
     
    The E-PACE is available with the choice of two 2.0-liter turbocharged Ingenium gasoline engines. The
    flagship 296HP Ingenium engine powers the sporting SUV from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds (6.4
    seconds for the 0-100km/h sprint) before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 152mph
    (243km/h).

    The Active Driveline all-wheel-drive system in R-Dynamic models is a technological first for Jaguar. The
    intelligent set-up combines all-wheel drive traction with Jaguar’s unmistakable rear-wheel-drive feel. The
    system’s torque-biasing capability delivers added stability and dynamics in varying conditions and
    weather.

    The E-PACE features the very latest driver assistance technologies as standard equipment. A stereo
    camera underpins the advanced Autonomous Emergency Braking system, which supports Lane Keep
    Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, as well as the Intelligent Speed Limiter and Driver Condition Monitor
    systems. Front and rear parking aids are also standard.

    The camera also combines with the electric power assisted steering system and rear radars to deliver a
    Blind Spot Assist function, to help reduce the risk of sideswipe collisions on multi-lane roads. A new
    Forward Traffic Detection system also warns drivers of approaching vehicles at junctions where visibility
    is restricted.

    The E-PACE is the first Jaguar vehicle to feature the company’s next-generation Head-Up Display
    technology. The advanced display can project up to 66 percent more information onto the windshield
    using large, full-color graphics with enhanced clarity. Essential information including vehicle speed and
    navigation directions are in full view at all times, with alerts and updates for the infotainment and
    convenience features all projected in the driver’s eyeline.

    An optional 12.3-inch full color digital instrument panel and choice of two premium audio systems
    developed with Meridian™ put the E-PACE on a par with its class when it comes to interior technology.
    The E-PACE is also available with Jaguar’s innovative wearable Activity Key. The waterproof and
    shockproof wristband has an integrated transponder, allowing the driver to lock the main key inside the
    vehicle when enjoying outdoor pursuits such as running or cycling.

    Whenever the Activity Key is activated, by holding the wristband up to the upper edge of the license plate
    surround on the tailgate, any conventional key fobs left inside the vehicle are disabled.

    Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed that the newest member of its Jaguar PACE family, the E-PACE, will
    be manufactured in Europe and Asia to satisfy expected customer demand for the compact SUV. From
    late 2017, the Jaguar E-PACE will be the first vehicle to be produced as part of Jaguar Land Rover’s
    contract manufacturing agreement with Magna Steyr, an operating unit of Magna Inc, in Austria. It will be
    joined by the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE from 2018. The Jaguar E-PACE will be also be manufactured at
    Chery Jaguar Land Rover’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Changshu exclusively for Chinese
    customers.

    I think they wanted to tie it to the XE sedan, since this is the small crossover.

    There is an i-Pace electric crossover too.

    The thing that I realized about Jag is they have their naming scheme out of whack..everyone else uses X to signify crossover---X3, X5, QX, etc but because of historic naming like XJ and XK their cars have the X prefix...

    You don't really favor that sort of unilateral conformity, do you? Personally, I loathe it.
    I have no interest in Jaguars but I'll tip my cap to any resistance to homogenization.

    Nah, I was being facetious...pointing out the incongruity relative to the competition..though I do wonder if some prospective customers are confused when they discover the XE, XF, etc aren't crossovers...

    Wow.  As I suspected, the F-Pace keeps Jaguar relevant by being their best-selling vehicle.  Now they release a little brother to the most popular model in the lineup.  An E-Pace starting around $40K puts it just above Buick Envision territory given the similarities in size.  In this increasingly crowded luxury CUV space, I wonder how the E-Pace will stand out these days.

    I understand this but hate it if they did follow that just to be like everyone else. I do think they could have used the e for their pure electric line rather than i. Why not call this model the i-pace and their pure ev e-pace which ties into electricity. Or they could have called it J-Pace for their EV since Joules is a part of the EV culture. I just wish more thought would go into the names.

    J-Pace is a cool idea... yeah, the 'e-' prefix would seem appropriate for a pure electric...the 'i' prefix makes me think of Apple products.

    J-Pace would have to be the full size crossover since the XJ is the full size sedan.  Rumor is the XJ will be dropped due to poor sales.  Jaguar will probably have more crossovers than cars in a couple years, interesting since they are the car division and Land Rover is the SUV side, but it goes to show how much people want crossovers.

The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.

      At an event in Vail, Colorado today, GMC took the wraps off the 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.  As before, the top of the Yukon lineup will be the Denali trim, but joining the Denali for the first time is the brand's new AT4 trim which is a more off-road ready version.
      The Yukon gets an all-new interior while the Denali gets its own exclusive version. The Denali instrument panel is completely new and there are also unique seats  and four color themes.  Real wood trims with a natural look and texture join with a Denali only leather, hand-stitched interior.  For the driver, there is a 15-inch diagonal multicolor heads-up display.  On the Denali, AT4, and SLT trims, there is an available power sliding center console that allow the console to slide back up to 10 inches offering a large storage area. 
      Joining the lineup is the AT4 version. All GMC nameplates except the Savanna will be getting an AT4 version by the end of this year.  The Yukon AT4 gets a unique front fascia, and body color or dark accents around the outside, and a pair of red recovery hooks on the front.  The AT4 can be ordered with a four-corner air ride adaptive suspension that can raise the vehicle an additional 2-inches. The air ride system also lowers the vehicle 0.75 of an inch when at speed and can lower the vehicle up to two inches for easier ingress and egress. 
      Also included in the Yukon AT4 are at two-speed transfer case, 20-inch wheels, traction select system with off-road mode, hill descent control, skid plats, AT4-exclusive leather appointed seats, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and heated outboard second row seats. 
      The 4th generation of GM's magnetic ride control is available in certain trims. Also available is an electronic limited slip differential. When in 4WD low, the eLSD operates at full lock to prevent wheelslip. 
      The Yukon will offer three engine choices. An all-new version of the 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque is a buy-up option. Standard is the venerable 5.3-liter, updated with new stop/start technology and dynamic fuel management which can allow the vehicle to run on as few a two cylinders.  Additionally, a 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel joins the Yukon for the first time.  No matter which engine is selected, the transmission is a 10-speed automatic activated through GMC's new Electronic Precision Shift push-button selector. 
      Like the recently revealed 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the Yukon gains 4.9-inches in wheelbase and that leads to a big increase in interior room.

      At an event in Detroit this evening, Chevrolet took the wraps off the Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. We don't have specs yet to publish, but wanted to get the pictures out for you to see.  I will be updating the article as more details come out. 
      Six different trims will be offered including the new High Country trim, an RST trim, and Z71 becomes its own trim line instead of being offered as a separate package. LS, LT, and Premier trims carry on. Engines are the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8s, but the 3.0L Duramax will also be joining the lineup. The 5.3 and 6.2 now sport dynamic fuel management. All engines send power to the wheels through a 10-speed automatic. The Duramax is available on every trim except Z71.
      The power ratings are:
      5.3-Liter - 355 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 383 lb-Ft of torque at 4100 RPM 6.2-Liter - 420 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 RPM 3.0-Liter Duramax - 277 Horsepower at 3750 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 1500 RPM The column shifter is gone, replaced with a new pushbutton design placed on the dash.  Thanks to a fully independent rear suspension, they both gain room inside. Magnetic Ride Control and an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension (available on Z71 and High Country) are available. The Air Ride suspension offers adjustable height of up to 4-inches at all four corners .
      The dash sports a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment center standard. Buyers can opt for a rear seat entertainment system with twin 12.6-inch displays. Interior room is up; Tahoe sports 40 percent more third-row leg room and 66 percent more cargo volume behind the third row. While maximum cargo room is up 30 percent, the overall length increased only 4 percent. This is done on a wheelbase that is 4.9 inches longer than the 2020 model.  Suburban gets a 4.1 inch increase in wheelbase so that interior cargo volume increases 19 percent while overall length increases 1.3 inches.

    • As I captain my 6.3 sec 0-60 V6 Colorado, I still have a soft spot for the 2.0L 4WD Ecosport, especially now when competitive pressure is driving the transaction prices way down.  All the reviewers are saying the little Ford has a good ride and handling, and without the impediment of an artificially high selling price, it becomes much friendlier of a proposition. Same with the Trax, which is selling with excellent discounts.  Known for a smooth ride and good handling. I keep checking for Chevy's Build&Price function to come online for the 2021 Trailblazer, too.
    • Ah yes, the ol' "five gallon bucket trick"...
    • It has something to do with the shift buttons.
