The Jaguar F-Pace was unveiled at the Auto Expo in Delhi earlier this year and is slated to launch in this calendar year. And now that the details of the features and specifications have gone live on the company website, we think the launch might be just around the corner.
The Jaguar F-Pace should be available in four trims – Pure, Prestige, R-Sport and the First Edition in increasing levels of trim. The basic differences would start right from engine options with the Pure and the Prestige getting the 2.0-litre Ingenium four cylinder diesel engines while the R-Sport and the First Edition will get the mightier 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 diesel mill. The 2.0-litre diesel produces 177bhp of power and 430Nm of torque and comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 3.0-litre mill churns out 296bhp of power and a whopping 700Nm of torque making it one of the most powerful diesel SUVs.
The F-Pace gets safety features like dual-front airbags, side airbags, emergency brake assist, cruise control, dynamic stability control and hill launch assist as standard. Dual-zone climate control, one-touch window operation, rain-sensing automatic wipers, automatic headlamps and electrically adjustable rear-view mirrors are also standard.

Bi-xenon headlamps with the signature J-shaped LED daytime running lights and fog lamps are standard on the F-Pace.
The R-Sport comes with 19-inch alloy wheels and the R-Sport body-kit with slightly more aggressive front and rear bumpers and body coloured side mouldings. The metal tread-plates get the R-Sport lettering instead of Jaguar. The standard seats are replaced by bucket seats and are upholstered in dual-tone leather. The tailgate can now be closed with a gesture and gets body coloured wing mirrors.
