Jaguar fans, guests and customers, including James Corden, Michelle Rodriguez, Miranda Kerr and David Gandy joined the car’s creators in this unique virtual world
To be one of the first owners go to jaguar.com and click the ‘I want one’ button
Whitley, Coventry – 15th November 2016. The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar. This is a production preview of the Jaguar I-PACE, which will be revealed next year and on the road in 2018. Customers can register now at jaguar.com to be one of the first I-PACE owners.
Jaguar’s engineering and design teams have torn up the rule book to create a bespoke electric architecture, matched with dramatic design. The result is a no-compromise smart, five seat sports car and a performance SUV in one.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: “The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.
“Our virtual reality reveal today has pushed technology boundaries as well, and captures the hi-tech essence of the concept car. We only have one concept car and it is in LA for the reveal. For the first time, VR has allowed us share it across the globe in the most immersive way possible.”
This unique and world-first ‘social VR’ reveal is believed to be the largest live and connected VR event of its type to date. Throughout the day more than 300 guests were transported into a specially created life-like virtual space, into which, two of the car’s creators, Ian Callum and Ian Hoban were projected.
From VR hubs in Los Angeles and London, groups of 66 guests including A-list stars Michelle Rodriguez, Miranda Kerr and James Corden, used HTC Vive Business Edition headsets, powered by Dell Precision workstations, to put themselves inside the concept car and interact live with other participants. Guests ‘sat’ on the concept’s virtual seats, had a 3600 view of Venice Beach as the concept was built piece by piece around them, and saw the I-PACE Concept race towards them across a virtual desert.
Dr Wolfgang Ziebart, Jaguar Land Rover, said: "This is an uncompromised electric vehicle designed from a clean sheet of paper: we’ve developed a new architecture and selected only the best technology available. The I-PACE Concept fully exploits the potential EVs can offer in space utilisation, driving pleasure and performance."
The state-of-the-art electric motors and 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack were designed in-house by Jaguar Land Rover to give the best possible performance and range for most daily journeys. Where ever you are in the world you can simply plug your car into a wall socket overnight, and have more than enough range to complete the average daily commute of around 50 km.
For rapid charging, using a typical public 50 KW DC charging network, a full charge will take just over 2 hours. Enough to deliver more than 220 miles range (measured on the US EPA test cycle) or more than 500 km range (measured on the European NEDC test cycle).
The I-PACE Concept transforms the electric driving experience and offers the driver-focused performance and response Jaguar is renowned for. To help deliver this, the I-PACE has electric motors on the front and rear axles. Their combined output is 400PS and 700Nm of torque – the same torque rating as the F-TYPE SVR.
Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, described the set up to VR guests who were able to use virtual reality to get under the skin of this ground-breaking technology. He said: "Electric motors provide immediate response with no lag, no gearshifts and no interruptions. Their superior torque delivery compared to internal combustion engines transforms the driving experience. With 700Nm and the traction benefits of all-wheel drive, the I-PACE Concept accelerates from 0-60mph in around four seconds."
The virtual reality experience also allowed participants to sit in the front and rear of the Jaguar I-PACE Concept and explore the beautiful interior, discovering hidden details and features.
Ian Callum said: “The interior of the I-PACE Concept is finished with beautiful, premium materials and an unwavering attention to detail. Throughout the interior you will discover a host of beautiful details to surprise and delight. From the expansive panoramic glass roof to the sporting, beautifully finished seats, every feature bears the hallmark of British craftsmanship.
“And there is digital craftsmanship too, with two touch screens serving up information when and where you need it, limiting distraction and improving the driving experience”
Renowned VR Director, Alexander Horton, led the creative direction. Participants experienced the car being built around them, speeding towards them and appearing to fall to Earth from another planet – clearly signalling the future-forward nature of the revolutionary Jaguar.
The new and exciting VR platform pushed the boundaries further than ever before, with the inclusion of social interaction and a live presenter broadcast into a single VR world.
Groups in both LA and London were able to communicate and interact with one another, all whilst watching Ian Callum and Ian Hoban explain through high-end real-time 3D graphics both the design process and technology behind this forward-thinking concept car.
The VR content from the reveal will now be available on Viveport through a dedicated Jaguar app allowing consumers to experience the I-PACE Concept at home.
Jaguar joined forces with VR leaders HTC, Computer experts Dell and Creative agencies ReWind and Imagination to create the world’s largest, global, connected VR experience.
Dan O’ Brien, Vice President Virtual Reality at HTC said: "Jaguar Land Rover is renowned for its innovative spirit, and with Vive Business Edition we’re thrilled to be the virtual reality partner to help bring their latest launch into an immersive VR landscape and to VIVE users at home. With the blend of cinematics and Vive’s room-scale VR technology, the I-PACE Concept VR experience offers an incredible level of immersion, and showcases an exciting reimagining of the traditional car launch.”
Dell Precision workstations powered the design and development of the Jaguar I-PACE Concept and the VR reveal experience. Dell Precision Tower Workstations are configured specifically with the increased performance, graphics and memory for VR content creation and advanced commercial visualization, making these types of applications possible in new areas of business, such as automotive.
Rahul Tikoo, Vice President and General Manager for Dell Precision, said: “Dell has long been involved in VR. We’ve been evolving our business model to introduce solutions that are optimized for the future of VR, from our VR-ready XPS and Alienware devices for the best VR experience to VR-ready Dell Precision solutions for professionals to create it. The Jaguar I-PACE Concept, designed and introduced with VR, reinforces the incredible innovation that’s possible with VR technologies and the potential to ultimately transform industries.”
Ross Wheeler, Head of Automotive at Imagination, said: “For the first time in history, a global automotive brand has used fully immersive VR to launch their latest car. This launch takes the individual far beyond any new car experience they would have witnessed before, allowing people across the world to connect in real time, be fully immersed within the vehicle and share live together their experience of Jaguar’s first ever electric vehicle.”
“Jaguar, by embracing cutting-edge technology in this way, has created an experience rich and rewarding for its consumers. It has undoubtedly redefined the future of how automotive brands introduce their new vehicles to customers.”
재규어가 2015 프랑크푸르트쇼 개막을 하루 앞두고 전세계 미디어를 대상으로 F-페이스 SUV를 공개했다. F-페이스는 최근 큰 폭으로 확대되고 있는 프리미엄 SUV 시장을 노리고 개발한 재규어의 야심작으로 이미 다양한 루트를 통해 디자인이 공개된 바 있다.
스타일은 예상대로 이안 칼럼이 주장해온 우아함을 바탕에 두고 역동적인 곡선을 많이 썼다. 길이 4,731mm, 휠베이스 2,874mm로 BMW X3보다 약간 크며 650L의 트렁크 공간을 확보해 실용성도 뛰어나다.
파워트레인은 2.0리터 180마력 디젤부터 380마력 가솔린 3.0리터 수퍼차저까지 다양하다. 2.0리터 엔트리 디젤의 경우 6단 수동이 기본이고 FR과 AWD의 구동계로 나뉜다. 차체의 80%를 알루미늄으로 만든 인텐시브 모노코크 형태로 무게를 1,665kg으로 억제한 덕분에 이산화탄소 배출량은 동급 최저 수준인 129g/km에 불과하다.
고성능인 380마력 수퍼차저 유닛은 정통 스포츠카 F-타입에 쓰여 검증 받은 바 있으며 뒷바퀴굴림 기반의 AWD 구동계를 통해 날카로운 동력성능을 낸다. 또 같은 소속인 랜드로버의 터레인리스폰스와 비슷한 형태의 그립 컨트롤 기능도 제공한다. ASR(Adaptive Surface Response)로 불리는 장치로 재규어 드라이브 컨트롤과 다이내믹 스테빌리티 컨트롤 등을 결합해 지형에 상관없이 최상의 그립을 제공한다.
첨단 기술을 적극적으로 받아들이는 재규어답게 F-페이스에도 독특한 장비를 갖췄다. 시인성이 뛰어난 레이저 타입의 HUD와 웨어러블 기술을 활용한 액티비티 키(Activity Key) 등이 좋은 예다. 방수 및 방진 기능을 갖춘 액티비티 키는 밴드 형태로 팔목에 차는 형태로 액티비티를 즐길 때 키를 잃어 버릴 염려가 없어 환영할만하다.
재규어, 뉴욕 맨하탄 파크 어비뉴 터널(Park Avenue tunnel) 320km/h 주행 화보입니다.

New York City's Park Avenue Tunnel was closed off to the public as British car manufacturer Jaguar showcased the distinctive sound of the new F-TYPE SVR ahead of the 2016 New York International Auto Show [NYIAS].
Along with its performance and handling, the F-TYPE's visceral sound is one of the most celebrated features of Jaguar's highly successful sports car. The tunnel, which passes under seven blocks of the iconic Park Avenue area in Manhattan and is 422 metres long, provided a unique environment to experience the distinctive, purposeful, and harder edged sound delivered by the F-TYPE SVR.
Key to the new car's phenomenal sound is its Titanium and Inconel exhaust system. This enhances the F-TYPE SVR's high performance character still further. As part of the New York demonstration, Jaguar used a custom technology specially adapted to respond specifically to the exhaust note of the F-TYPE SVR. As the car powered through Park Avenue tunnel, a series of specially installed lights changed colour from white to Jaguar Red in tandem with its increasing acceleration.
The F-TYPE SVR also features the latest evolution of Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 to deliver increased engine output and the ultimate in performance and driver reward.
The F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar SVR and the fastest F-TYPE ever with a top speed of 200mph. It has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to be lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful while remaining tractable and useable day-to-day.
Priced from £110,000 for the Coupe and £115,485 for the Convertible
분노의 질주 더 세븐에서 레티 오티즈 역으로 나왔던 미셸 로드리게즈가 직접 운전했다고 합니다.
그녀가 달린 속도는 자그마치 201mph(약 323.5km/h)라고 합니다.
The new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR, the fastest Jaguar ever, has been put through its first high speed test drive with Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez at the wheel.
On a closed highway in the Nevada desert, home to the world's fastest road race the Silver State Classic Challenge, the actress pushed the car to its top speed with the speedometer indicating 201mph - a personal top speed for Michelle.
Michelle Rodriguez said: ""Driving this car was insane! I've now broken my personal speed record in the beautiful Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. Reaching 201mph felt amazing, the car drove really smoothly, all my corrections were minimal, I was super focused, and it really reacted in all the right ways. I don't think I'd ever go this fast without a professional driver seated next to me, but oh man, it was an incredible feeling."
"I've always wondered what it was like to travel faster than my top speed of 140mph and, outside of the Autobahn, it's impossible for me to do it safely anywhere else and safety is most important to me. It was refreshing to be able to take myself beyond my limitations, going that fast is a big responsibility but the experience in this car was more graceful than anything I've felt before."
Developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to be lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful while remaining useable day-to-day, the F-TYPE SVR is Jaguar's ultimate performance vehicle.
John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said:
"Building upon the award-winning F-TYPE was a challenging objective. Everything in terms of handling, design, sound and performance had to be taken to a new level, and is what the new F-TYPE SVR delivers. It is a 200mph all-weather supercar, but above all one that is designed to be driven every day."
The F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar SVR and fastest F-TYPE ever. Acceleration from 0-60mph takes just 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 200mph for the Coupé. Priced from £110,000 for the Coupé and £115,485 for the Convertible,

The all-new Jaguar XF brings an unrivalled blend of design, luxury, technology and efficiency to lead the business car segment, underpinned by class-leading driving dynamics and refinement.
The dynamic, coupé-like design is formed around Jaguar's aluminium-intensive architecture and combines the outstanding proportions, elegant surfaces and perfect lines which define all Jaguar cars, with a longer wheelbase, more interior space and exceptionally low aerodynamic drag.
The cabin is a seamless blend of contemporary luxury materials and finishes, traditional Jaguar craftsmanship and state-of-the art technology, with features such as a reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, laser head-up display and the InControl Touch Pro premium infotainment system - the all-new XF is the most connected Jaguar ever.
The 2007 XF was a radical step forward for Jaguar - and for the business car segment. Combining a sleek, coupé-like exterior and a luxurious interior, it set the class benchmark for aesthetics and driving dynamics.
Features such as the rotary shift controller, rotating air vents and phosphor blue ambient lighting set the cabin apart from the competition and made the XF a highly desirable, aspirational vehicle. It was like nothing Jaguar had ever made before, and like nothing the competition could offer. The XF went on to become the most-awarded Jaguar ever.
The all-new XF retains its predecessor's core attributes, but uses Jaguar's aluminium-intensive architecture to enable weight savings of up to 190kg - making the 163PS diesel model 80kg lighter than the nearest competitor - plus an increase in torsional stiffness of up to 28 per cent. The architecture also delivers dramatic improvements in packaging and the proportions so essential to Jaguar design.
The all-new XF is 4,954mm long: at 2,960 the wheelbase is 51mm longer than before, the front overhang 66mm shorter. Though 7mm shorter and 3mm lower than the original XF, rear seat space is class-leading thanks to 15mm more legroom, 24mm more kneeroom and up to 27mm more headroom than before. Aerodynamics are also superior: the drag coefficient drops from 0.29 to just 0.26.
The light, stiff body is also fundamental to the all-new XF's superb vehicle dynamics. Double wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension - combined with near-50:50 weight distribution - deliver the ideal balance between ride and handling.
"From an engineering perspective, our targets with the all-new XF were bound by one holistic goal - it had to do everything better, and it does.
"It offers even better dynamics, even greater refinement for the comfort of its occupants, it delivers an all-new infotainment system, and it utilises every last mm of packaging to maximise interior space, while exploiting all the weight-saving optimisation offered by our new aluminium-intensive architecture. As a driver you will notice these benefits from the moment you sit behind the wheel."
Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XF
Adopting Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) maintains Jaguar's leadership in steering feel but also reduces fuel consumption by up to two per cent and three per cent for diesel and petrol models respectively. EPAS also enables functions such as camber compensation and advanced driver assistance systems including lane-keep assist, driver condition monitoring and bay- and parallel park-assist.
Advanced passive damper technology delivers exceptional ride quality as standard through an extra valve which reduces damping forces at low speeds. For even better control the Adaptive Dynamics system monitors body movement 100 times a second and wheel movement 500 times a second to determine the optimum damper settings for the driving conditions.
Jaguar Configurable Dynamics technology, optional on all V6 models, provides the ultimate in control and enables the driver to individually tailor settings of the dampers, steering, engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive (AWD) was engineered into the vehicle from day one. The torque on-demand system is new, and the transfer case features a lighter, quieter, more efficient chain drive.
Capability is also enhanced by the advanced control system first used in F-TYPE AWD: Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD). This delivers rear-drive handling with the performance and traction benefits of AWD.
A first for XF AWD is the addition of the Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) mode to Jaguar Drive Control. Leveraging Jaguar Land Rover's unrivalled expertise, AdSR identifies the type of surface, such as snow or gravel, and adapts the mapping of the engine, transmission, steering and Dynamic Stability Control to make the vehicle even more composed in low-grip conditions.
Ability is unrivalled in rear-wheel drive form too. All-Surface Progress Control, developed for low-speed driving in adverse conditions, automatically manages the brakes and the throttle to deliver the best possible traction, enabling the car to pull away smoothly and without drama: the driver only has to steer. ASPC operates between 3.6km/h and 30km/h, and the desired speed is set by the driver using the cruise control switches.
Infotainment and connectivity is the most advanced Jaguar has ever offered. The all-new InControl Touch Pro system builds on the intuitive user interface of InControl Touch, and supports all the same features - including InControl Apps, InControl Remote and Wi-Fi hotspot - but offers a 10.2-inch touchscreen and Dual View technology which simultaneously allows the driver to see information such as navigation, while the front seat passenger watches TV or a DVD.
To enrich the experience there's also natural voice control, supporting commands such as 'more like this' for track selection, and 10GB of the 60GB solid-state drive is dedicated to media storage, enabling Gracenote album art to be displayed. Audio systems include the exceptional 17-speaker, 825W Meridian digital surround sound system.
To handle the enormous amounts of data, InControl Touch Pro features a high-performance quad-core processor and runs on state-of-the-art, ultra-fast Ethernet, a network technology which offers exceptional data transfer rates of up to 1Gbit/second. Combined, they deliver incredible graphics, fast response times and help to future-proof the system for significant upgrades in functionality over time.
To minimise driver distraction the all-new XF offers a colour laser head-up display. Compared to competitor systems, this technology is smaller, lighter, and generates high contrast images which are easier to read in strong sunlight.
Stereo camera technology enables autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keep assist systems. Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist takes the stress out of motorway driving in stop-go traffic by tracking the vehicle in front, at a safe distance.
The traffic sign recognition system brings Jaguar's first application of an intelligent speed limiter. Once set, the system monitors speed limit signs, compares them with navigation data and, when a change in speed limit is posted, can regulate vehicle speed by either smoothly accelerating the car up to a higher limit or slowing it down to a lower limit.
The all-new XF is also the first Jaguar to offer adaptive full-LED headlights. Featuring two banks of LEDs and reflectors - one for dipped beam, the other for main beam - they generate light with a colour temperature closer to that of daylight than is achievable with Xenon lights, delivering better illumination. At the same time, energy consumption is reduced. So efficient are they that, unlike first-generation designs, cooling fans are not needed.
If the high-beam assist function is specified, the stereo camera will detect other vehicles in the distance, and the headlights will be dipped automatically as necessary to avoid dazzling other drivers.
The all-new XF range will consist of: XF Pure/ SE, XF Prestige, XF R-Sport, XF Portfolio, XF S.
The powertrain range will consist of: 163PS and 180PS 2.0-litre diesel manual and automatic; RWD, 240PS 2.0-litre petrol automatic; RWD, 300PS 3.0-litre diesel automatic; RWD and AWD, 340PS and 380PS 3.0-litre petrol automatic.
Manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover's Castle Bromwich Plant, the all-new XF joins the Jaguar saloon car range between the XE and XJ model lines.
"The XF nameplate sits at the very heart of Jaguar; the original XF was revolutionary for the brand, and now the all-new aluminium-intensive XF represents another innovative step-change within the business segment.
"Lighter and more efficient, with enhanced space, an all-new premium infotainment system, a greater breadth of powertrains, unrivalled dynamics and refinement and, of course, world-leading design, the all-new XF offers customers a compelling package."

"The F-TYPE is a sports car that excites the senses, with a visual drama that is both individual and very British. Creating the British Design Edition gave us the opportunity to subtly enhance the way the F-TYPE looks - inside and out."
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar
Based on the F-TYPE S Coupé and Convertible, and featuring a range of visual enhancements and additional equipment, the British Design Edition is offered in a specially-selected colour palette inspired by the Union Jack: Caldera Red, Glacier White and - new to the F-TYPE range - Ultra Blue. Ultimate Black is also available.
Further enhancements to the F-TYPE's award-winning design come from the Sport Design pack and discreet British Design Edition badges front and rear, with unique branding on the centre console, headrests and the stainless steel tread plates.
Behind the 20-inch Cyclone wheels with unique Satin Grey finish is an uprated braking system featuring red calipers (black is available as an option).
Complementing the range of exterior colours is a crafted premium Jet leather interior finished with contrast stitching in a choice of three colours. The driver-focused theme of the 'one-plus-one' cabin is heightened by carbon fibre trim around the centre console.
Jaguar's InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus infotainment systems are offered with upgraded audio equipment developed together with leading British experts Meridian. InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus support a range of apps which make it easier than ever for the driver to stay connected.
The Jaguar F-TYPE British Design Edition will be available in Coupé and Convertible body styles. Power comes exclusively from the 380PS/ 460Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, matched to the six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive, or eight-speed Quickshift transmission with rear- or all-wheel drive.
Winner of more than 140 awards since its launch in 2012, the all-aluminium Jaguar F-TYPE is not only the embodiment of Jaguar DNA, it is the definitive British sports car.
Befitting its status, the F-TYPE British Design Edition model is offered in Caldera Red, Glacier White and - new to the F-TYPE range - Ultra Blue. Customers also have the choice of Ultimate Black.
Enhancing the F-TYPE's dramatic lines is the Sport Design Pack. Optional on the S model, this is standard equipment on the British Design Edition and comprises a gloss black front splitter, body-coloured side sill extensions and rear venturi - a fixed rear spoiler is also available for the Coupé.
The 20-inch Cyclone wheels with Satin Dark Grey finish are unique to the British Design Edition and are fitted with 255/35/R20 and 295/30/R20 tyres front and rear respectively. British Design Edition centre caps are available as an accessory fit.
And as well as larger wheels and tyres than the F-TYPE S, the British Design Edition also features uprated stopping power courtesy of the Jaguar Super Performance Brake system. The calipers are finished in red, with black available as an option.
Completing the exterior enhancements are new badges for the front grille and the tailgate. In place of the red and green of the S roundel, the British Design Edition features Union Jack detailing in subtle monochrome.
The F-TYPE's interior has always been a special place to be. The combination of a driver-orientated 'one-plus-one' cockpit, superbly comfortable and supportive seats, and luxury materials and finishes make Jaguar's sports car different.
The British Design Edition builds on this theme, offering premium Jet leather throughout together with contrast stitching in a choice of three distinctive colours: Red, Ivory and Reims Blue. The 14-way sports seats feature headrests embossed with British Design Edition branding.
Replacing the aluminium of the F-TYPE S, carbon fibre trim is used on the centre console - this is also complete with British Design Edition branding. The texture and satin finish of this material complements the premium Jet leather interior perfectly.
Thanks to repackaging of key components at the rear of the vehicle, all 2017 model year F-TYPE convertibles offer an additional 8-litres of luggage space.
Technology that brings driver and F-TYPE even closer
The standard specification of the British Design Edition also includes upgraded audio compared to the F-TYPE S. Vehicles equipped with the InControl Touch infotainment system benefit from a 380W Meridian system with 10 speakers, while the InControl Touch Plus system delivers 770W of Meridian surround sound through 12 speakers.
Both InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus support the familiar InControl Apps and InControl Remote features, but the InControl Remote App is now available for the Apple Watch. Interacting with the vehicle - from anywhere in the world - has never been easier.
Functionality is similar to the current InControl Remote smartphone app, so drivers will be able to use their Apple Watch to lock and unlock the vehicle, check how much fuel is in the tank and find it on a map. It's even possible to set the climate control and start the engine to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before the journey begins.
재규어 첫 SUV F-페이스(Jaguar F-PACE) 큰 사진들 올립니다. 현지시간 15일, 우리는 내일 정도에 2015 프랑크푸르트 모터쇼 사진이 쏟아져 나오겠네요. ^^ 나오는 족족 전달하겠습니다. 자세한 내용은 더 보기를 클릭요
September 14, 2015 - The all-new 2017 Jaguar F-PACE is a medium luxury SUV designed and engineered to offer the agility, responsiveness and refinement that Jaguar cars are renowned for, together with the exceptional dynamics and everyday versatility of an SUV.
Designed by the same team as the C-X17 concept vehicle, the F-PACE remains true to the aesthetic of the award-winning concept. Thanks to the flexibility of the Jaguar Lightweight Aluminum Architecture, designers could work hand in hand with the engineers to determine key dimensions such as the wheelbase and track, delivering the proportions and elegant lines that distinguish it instantly as a Jaguar vehicle.
"We designed the all-new F-PACE to be first and foremost a Jaguar. That's why it has exciting proportions, a dynamic stance, pure surfaces and a beautiful sensuality about it. Its progressive, purposeful appearance has clearly been influenced by the F-TYPE. Every Jaguar car should draw your eye from 200 meters away and I believe the presence of the all-new F-PACE on the road is second to none in this class. The Lightweight Aluminum Architecture gave us the design freedom to create a car with latent poise - a svelte car with attitude," said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. "It looks assertive yet not aggressive. But it's also versatile and equipped with real-world answers to everyday questions. The all-new F-PACE is an all-weather Jaguar sports car, life-proofed for five people and their belongings."
The influence of the F-TYPE is instantly apparent at the rear of the F-PACE, from the design of the LED tail-lights to its muscular rear haunches. The rakish angle of the rear window belies the load space behind it. Jaguar design cues extend to the silhouette of the F-PACE, with a sleek roofline as well as short front and rear overhangs that reflect the vehicle's agile response. The vehicle's stance is further emphasized with the fitment of optional 22-inch diameter wheels.
Outside, the taut surfaces and clean lines of the bodysides are formed from a single sheet of aluminum - building upon the brand's decades-long expertise in designing, engineering and manufacturing vehicles using this lightweight material. The bold, upright front grille is assertive, but also contributes to the aerodynamic efficiency of the performance SUV. The Jaguar signature power bulge extends the full length of the aluminum hood emphasizing the vehicle's performance capabilities. Altogether, the exterior design cues from the bodyside, hood, front and rear help underscore the vehicle's athleticism as a performance SUV.
The sleek headlights, available with adaptive full-LED technology2, feature daytime running lights with the signature Jaguar 'J' Blade design. The slender LED fog lights available on R-Sport trim levels were developed in-house and use TV screen optics and light tubes to deliver compact packaging, as well as an exceptionally smooth, homogeneous light source.
The F-PACE is a five seater and features a spacious, luxurious interior which utilizes premium materials, craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail that gives every Jaguar vehicle its unique sense of occasion.
The 'Sports Command' driving position in the F-PACE provides authoritative, confidence-inspiring outward visibility2, while retaining the Jaguar-specific sports car feel; the dramatic curve of the front door top is incorporated into the dash fascia enhancing the cockpit-like feel.
The vehicle's available leather sports seats are shaped to provide exceptional comfort and support; they are available with 14 different adjustments plus heating and cooling functions. A range of contemporary trim options are also available, including authentic metal finishes such as Meshed Aluminum and beautiful crafted veneers such as Satin Grey Ash.
The instrument panel, similar to those found in the new XE and XF, features two large, deeply-hooded analogue dials and a central TFT display, or an optional 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster featuring the choice of four visual themes and full-screen navigation9. Ambient lighting, especially with the 10-color option, further enhances the sense of luxury.
The long, 113-inch (2,874mm) wheelbase makes ingress and egress to and from the rear seats easy, while the seat base itself was designed to allow passengers to sit further outboard; resulting in more space for three occupants to fit in the second row. The positioning of the seats, together with the height of the beltline, means that even small children enjoy a good view out. The available four-zone climate control system with B-pillar vents and the electric recline function of the rear seats adds to the passenger experience.
Driver and front seat passengers will also enjoy a center console that offers a 12V socket and up to three USB ports. The rear console can feature up to two more 12V sockets or two additional USB ports.
The focus on package efficiency also means that the F-PACE has a loadspace volume of 23-cu.ft. (650-liters) with a width of 49.4-inches (1,255mm). The 40:20:40 split rear seats allow through-loading and when folded flat, the luggage compartment offers up to 61.4-cu.ft. (1,740-liters) of space. Packaging is further enhanced by the low loading height and flat floor. The floor itself is reversible: one side is carpeted, the other rubberized - making it ideal for sports equipment or pets. The lightweight composite tailgate benefits from power opening and closing functions, and optional gesture control for hands-free operation.
ARCHITECTURE AND BODY STRUCTURE
The F-PACE is the latest Jaguar model, alongside the XE and XF, to benefit from the brand's expertise in designing and manufacturing aluminum monocoques. In fact, the F-PACE features the largest amount of the Jaguar-developed RC5754 aluminum alloy yet; one third of the vehicle features this lightweight material which comprises up to 75 percent recycled material.
In conjunction with the brand's Lightweight Aluminum Architecture, new features such as the composite tailgate, magnesium cross-car beam and front-end carrier contribute to its outstanding driving dynamics.
Advanced high strength steels in areas such as the rear floor, are joined using more than 2,600 self-piercing rivets, 238.8-ft (72.8 m) of structural adhesive and more than 560 spot-welds. The resulting torsional stiffness matches that of the all-new XF and, together with the advanced suspension systems, are key to the exceptional blend of ride, handling and refinement of the performance SUV.
The high-pressure diecast aluminum front suspension turrets, have been engineered to accommodate additional ground clearance and suspension travel of the vehicle. The front crossmembers are large; making them stiff to support the vehicle's elevated, Sports Command driving position. The subframes and subframe mounting points have been engineered to contribute to greater overall stiffness without the weight and packaging penalties that come by simply adding body reinforcements. In fact, wherever possible, every bracket in the body has been optimized so that it contributes to body stiffness, as well as performing its primary function.
The F-PACE has been engineered to deliver the same outstanding driving experience which sets all Jaguar vehicles apart from the competition. Using the long wheelbase of the Lightweight Aluminum Architecture helped keep the center of mass between the axles, while the chassis high stiffness benefits not only ride, but responsiveness.
"We develop every Jaguar vehicle to offer an unrivalled combination of agility and responsiveness with exceptional ride and refinement - and the all-new F-PACE is no exception," said, Mike Cross, Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar. "Applying all of the learning from F-TYPE, the steering reacts immediately, giving a truly connected feel. The double wishbone and Integral Link suspension offers the ideal balance of precise handling and body control, making the all-new F-PACE as rewarding to drive as it is comfortable to be driven in."
Double-wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension, as well as a sophisticated Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system2, deliver exceptional capability on varying road surfaces. Extremely stiff in camber, the double-wishbone suspension allows the front tires to develop lateral force more quickly resulting in sharper turn-in and quicker steering response from the drivers input. The suspension is also tuned to allow the tire to maintain its contact patch throughout the full range of suspension travel, enabling the tires to generate more grip; contributing to enhanced steering feel and control.
Aluminum is used almost exclusively to make the suspension as light as possible, most notably the front knuckles. The intricate, ribbed design is achieved by forging the component from cast blanks; enabling maximum stiffness for minimum weight. Among the other enhancements are bonded bushings for the tubular anti-roll bar - as well as better NVH properties, the bushing design prevents dirt ingress, improving reliability.
The result of years of advanced research and development, Integral Link is the most sophisticated and capable rear suspension system ever put into a Jaguar vehicle. Separating lateral and longitudinal stiffness, the Integral Link allows the suspension to provide the best possible comfort without compromising dynamics.
The bushings which manage longitudinal loads can be made much softer than would otherwise be possible with conventional multilink suspensions, enabling excellent energy absorption and therefore a smoother, quieter ride. At the same time, lateral stiffness can be far higher, making the vehicle more responsive. Caster stiffness has been increased over other Jaguar models, which is felt by the driver as improved stability when braking.
The upper links are aluminum forgings, while the lower arm is hollow-cast aluminum - the optimum lightweight solution for this complex part. The springs and dampers are mounted separately, allowing each to be ideally positioned for the forces acting on the suspension and contributing even more to the dynamics and refinement of the F-PACE. This design is also highly space-efficient, minimizing intrusion into the luggage compartment.
Every Jaguar vehicle is designed to provide a responsive, connected steering feel. The all-new F-PACE is no exception, as this target drove the development of every single component between the steering wheel and the tire contact patch in order to achieve the precision, response and linearity which define Jaguar steering DNA.
Among the measures taken to achieve this include adding a fifth mounting point for the steering rack, and increasing the rotational stiffness of the subframe-to-body connections. High lateral stiffness in the rear axle also helps with initial turn-in because lateral forces at the tire contact patches build very quickly. Aerodynamics have been developed to give a front:rear lift balance closer to that of a sedan than an SUV, contributing to improved feel and stability during high-speed cruising.
The Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system2 in the F-PACE benefits from the addition of closed-loop control. Specially-developed algorithms calculate the forces coming back from the road and use this information to further refine the level of assistance, making the steering even more intuitive.
The EPAS system also features a variable steering ratio - as standard. This is achieved using variable pitch gears on the rack bar and fixed pitch gears on the pinion. By changing the contact point with the rack's gear teeth from the valleys on-center to the peaks at full lock, the more the driver turns the wheel, the more responsive the steering becomes2.
Meticulously engineered and exhaustively tested at locations around the world, each available wheel and tire combination offers an excellent balance of grip, low rolling resistance, comfort and durability. F-PACE offers a variety of different wheel and tire options; from 18-inch wheels designed specifically to reduce aerodynamic drag to 22-inch wheels which complement the performance and design of the vehicle.
The range of 22-inch wheels was developed for the F-PACE by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations division. Produced from forged aluminum to make them lighter and stiffer, they not only help to deliver the concept-car look of the C-X17 but also contribute to the high levels of on-road dynamics and traction of the F-PACE.
Another technology first developed for F-TYPE and now applied to the F-PACE is Torque Vectoring by Braking. Designed to make the vehicle even more agile, the system can apply finely-metered braking to the inner wheels to mitigate understeer during corner entry, helping the driver to keep the vehicle on the ideal line through a turn2. The system works predominantly on the inside rear wheel to avoid any corruption of steering feel, and as a result, system intervention is virtually transparent to the driver.
All models feature monotube dampers as standard. Not only do they contribute to a reduction in unsprung mass but they are also more responsive than conventional twin-tube dampers, and therefore offer greater ride control.
The available Adaptive Dynamics takes this to the next level. By monitoring body movement 100 times a second and wheel movement 500 times a second, the system is designed to provide continuously variable damping to suit the conditions2, delivering a comfortable ride at lower speeds and even better handling at higher speeds3. Linked to Adaptive Dynamics, Configurable Dynamics, first developed for the F-TYPE, enables the driver to tailor the vehicle's character by individually selecting dynamic or normal modes for the throttle mapping, transmission shift strategy, steering feel and adaptive damper setting, all using the central touchscreen.
For models equipped with the Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment system1, drivers also gain the Dynamic-i feature, which displays a stopwatch, g-meter and a map of accelerator pedal response.
At launch, U.S. buyers will have their choice of a 3.0l 340hp or 380hp supercharged gasoline V6 mated to an 8-speed transmission with power being routed to all four wheels via a torque-on-demand all-wheel drive system. Later in 2016, a 180hp four cylinder Ingenium diesel engine will also be added to the model lineup.
Supercharged V6 gasoline engines
The 340hp and 380hp variants of the supercharged gasoline V6 engine are shared with the F-TYPE sports car. These all-aluminum engines are characterized by their immediate throttle response, linear power delivery and unique intake and exhaust sound.
The 90-degree cylinder bank angle enables the roots-type supercharger to be neatly packaged within the vee. Together with direct injection and variable intake and exhaust valve timing, the supercharger helps the engine generate a high torque output throughout the rev range, delivering strong acceleration at all times.
Both variants are matched to eight-speed automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive. The 380hp engine is exclusive to the F-PACE S models, and can launch the performance SUV from 0-60mph in only 5.1 seconds, on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph3.
Ingenium diesel6: Low fuel consumption, high torque
Available later in 2016, the clean, responsive, Ingenium diesel uses state-of-the-art technologies including selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to cut NOx and CO2emissions.
Designed and manufactured in-house, this state-of-the-art, all-aluminum 2.0-liter engine produces 180hp and 317 lb.ft. of torque; delivering strong acceleration whenever the driver demands it3. It's highly efficient too, achieving excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
Ingenium is one of the first diesel engines to feature variable valve timing: a phaser to the exhaust camshaft enables the after treatment system to reach operating temperature as quickly as possible, reducing emissions. The engine warms up very quickly from cold thanks to a split-cooling system featuring a variable flow coolant pump and a mapped thermostat.
The 1,800bar common rail system and highly efficient variable geometry turbocharger enable clean, quiet, efficient combustion. Using cooled low-pressure EGR in addition to high-pressure EGR reduces pumping losses and therefore improves efficiency still further. Just as importantly, it reduces peak combustion temperatures and reduces the formation of NOx.
The transmission in the F-PACE was developed with ZF® to deliver exceptional shift quality and efficiency. All six-cylinder engines are paired with the same 8HP70 transmission also found in the Jaguar XE, XF, XJ and F-TYPE models.
While the automatic transmission models have been developed to select the right gear at the right time depending on the mode chosen in the JaguarDrive Control™ system and according to driving style, enthusiasts will make the most of manual shift control using the steering wheel-mounted paddles. S models feature standard satin chrome-finished paddles.
Like the F-TYPE AWD, the F-PACE features a torque-on-demand AWD system2. Under normal driving conditions, all of the engine torque is sent to the rear axle, maintaining a rear-wheel drive character, while minimizing parasitic losses in the drivetrain. Whenever greater traction is needed, Jaguar Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD)2 is designed to ensure that precisely the right amount of torque is transferred to the front axle. This process takes no more than 165 milliseconds and is virtually transparent to the driver.
These technologies ensure that the F-PACE delivers the connected steering feel and rear-wheel drive character inherent to Jaguar dynamics DNA, together with handling and performance which fully exploits the benefits of extra traction when required. This could not be realized with a conventional, full-time AWD system.
At the heart of the system is a compact transfer case featuring a multi-plate wet clutch and chain drive to the front axle. The all-wheel drive system is incredibly quick; making the transition from 100 percent rear-bias to a 50:50 torque split in just 165 milliseconds. If there is already a proportion of torque being sent to the front axle, additional torque transfer can take as little as 100 milliseconds.
Torque distribution is controlled by the IDD module, which is integrated into the transfer case. Taking data from the vehicle's yaw rate, lateral acceleration and steering wheel angle sensors, IDD continuously estimates not only the friction between the tires and the road surface, but also how much of the available grip is being exploited at each contact patch.
This intelligence, coupled to the extremely fast-acting transfer case, enables IDD to employ both pre-emptive and reactive control strategies, maximizing dynamics and traction. If IDD predicts that the rear axle is approaching the limit of available traction, torque will be transferred to the front axle. Torque can also be fed forwards to help mitigate oversteer by providing yaw damping. IDD is also networked to Jaguar Drive Control and the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system so that torque distribution can be even further optimized.
Adaptive Surface Response
The AWD system in the F-PACE is enhanced further by the Jaguar Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) technology. AdSR automatically adapts the maps of the throttle, transmission and DSC system according to the type of surfaceto maximize traction in a variety of conditions2.
Replacing Winter mode in the JaguarDrive Control system, AdSR operates throughout the vehicle's entire speed range and is designed to enable finer optimization of the vehicle's systems to make the most of the available traction, helping the driver to make smooth progress on challenging surfaces2.
AdSR debuted in the new XF and is further enhanced in the F-PACE, featuring three modes, one for low-traction surfaces such as snow and ice, one for medium-traction surfaces such as wet tarmac or gravel and a third mode for high-drag conditions such as deep snow and deep gravel to further exploit the vehicle's inherent ability. The system automatically switches modes to suit the conditions, leaving the driver free to concentrate on driving2.
So whereas on ice, for example, a very progressive throttle map will be selected, a much more aggressive map is used for deep snow because the engine has to build up torque very quickly to help the vehicle to maintain momentum.If, for example, the road surface changes from a thin layer of snow to a gritted section and then to a section covered with a thick layer of snow, AdSR will select different modes for each surface2. The transition takes place quickly - around four seconds - and seamlessly.
Designed to be as light and rigid as possible, the monocoque structure also delivers the short overhangs which are not only essential to the vehicle' outstanding proportions, but also to the maximum approach and departure angles of 25.5-deg and 25.7-deg respectively.
The ground clearance of 8.4-inches (213mm) is another advantage and one made all the more effective by the smooth underfloor which reduces aerodynamic drag. Similarly, when the architecture was developed, ECUs and other electronics modules were packaged as high up as possible to aid the remarkable 20.7-inch (525mm) wading depth of the F-PACE2.
The F-PACE has been developed to offer exceptional driving dynamics but its performance on tarmac is just one of its strengths. To ensure that it also delivers in adverse road and weather conditions, the vehicle has been subjected a demanding test program, in locations including the searing heat of Dubai and the freezing cold of Northern Sweden.
More than a quarter of a million test miles were accumulated in these two regions alone, where ambient temperatures can fall as low as -40°F (-40°C) and reach as high as 122°F (50°C). Going to such measures ensures that everything from tires to climate control systems to the infotainment touch-screens function perfectly in extreme conditions.
Among the features at the Jaguar Land Rover winter proving ground in Arjeplog, Sweden are 37-miles (60km) of purpose-designed handling tracks, loops, inclines and split-friction straights. Testing in Dubai included graveled mountain passes and dry river beds known as wadis - the F-PACE is the first Jaguar to be tested in these particularly challenging environments.
This is also the first time that a Jaguar has been evaluated in the mud and ruts of the legendary Eastnor test facility in the UK; until now, only Land Rover vehicles have been developed here. It's fitting too that the F-PACE was not assessed using existing sedan car test requirements; instead, tests were derived from the uniquely demanding standards set by the Land Rover brand.
This process meant that the engineering team could perfect the calibration of technologies such as IDD and AdSR in the most difficult and demanding conditions. The result of this exhaustive development is a luxury SUV which is designed to be capable on varying road and weather conditions including ice, deep snow, dirt roads and wet grass2.
ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS
The F-PACE offers all of the technologies needed to make journeys more convenient, from traction systems to get drivers moving on low friction surfaces, to an emergency braking system.
All Surface Progress Control (ASPC)
Leveraging knowledge built up over decades of Land Rover experience in off-road technologies, ASPC delivers a step-change in capability by controlling the throttle and brakes, allowing the driver to concentrate more on the steering2. Functioning like a low-speed cruise control, ASPC can operate between 2.2mph (3.6km/h) and 19mph (30km/h). After activating the system by pressing a button on the center console, the driver uses the cruise control switches on the steering wheel to set the maximum speed. After that, the system does the work. As well as finely controlling the throttle, ASPC uses the brakes in opposition to the throttle so that from a standstill, only very low engine torque is applied to the driven wheels. The result is smooth, controlled progress with little or no wheel spin.
Low Traction Launch
While ASPC makes the most of the vehicle's traction capability by taking control of the throttle, some drivers want to achieve similar results while operating the throttle for themselves. The Low Traction Launch function has been designed to do this when the driver selects Low Traction Launch using the touchscreen. Once activated, it changes the throttle map to one which results in a very progressive torque response from the engine, enabling the driver to pull away smoothly2. Like ASPC, Low Traction Launch is standard on all engines.
Stereo Camera Technologies
The F-PACE features a forward-facing stereo camera at the heart of many of its advanced driver assistance systems. Providing a highly accurate 3D view of the road ahead, the stereo camera is ideal for Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems2. The F-PACE is the first Jaguar to offer an AEB system with a pedestrian detection function. If the system's controller determines that a collision with a vehicle or a pedestrian is imminent, it is designed to initiate full braking automatically2.
The stereo camera also provides the intelligence for the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) systems2. By monitoring the vehicle's position relative to lane markings either side, LDW can help to prevent drivers from drifting out of lane by triggering a visual warning in the instrument panel and a haptic warning through the steering wheel rim. LKA can guide the driver back towards the center of the lane by applying a small amount of counter-steering through the electric power-assisted steering system. The torque applied to the steering wheel can be easily over-ridden by the driver.
Failure to stay in lane is often due to a lack of concentration but driver fatigue can also be a factor. Such tiredness may be characterized by periods of little or no steering activity followed by sudden or excessive inputs. The Driver Condition Monitoring system is designed to recognize these patterns, and, by also checking the usage of the brake and accelerator pedals, the direction indicators and various buttons on the instrument panel, will show a multi-stage warning in the instrument cluster and give audible warnings to prompt the driver to take a break2.
The Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) system available on the F-PACE uses the stereo camera to keep the driver informed of the speed limit - including temporary limits which apply in road construction sites, for example, variable limits on highways, or reduced limits when towing2. The limit is displayed in the instrument cluster and if fitted to the vehicle, in the head-up display, and camera data is always cross-referenced against GPS data for maximum accuracy. If the driver selects the over-speed warning function, the ring around the sign graphic flashes whenever the limit is exceeded, giving an unobtrusive prompt to slow down.
Further support for the driver comes from the Intelligent Speed Limiter (ISL). This system can use TSR data to adjust the set point and can automatically increase or decrease the vehicle's maximum speed while the accelerator pedal is pressed. If the TSR system recognizes a higher speed limit ahead, the ISL system is designed to notify the driver and the vehicle can accelerate smoothly up to the new limit. If the speed limit is lower, the vehicle can be slowed down accordingly2.
Laser head-up display
The laser head-up display (HUD) available on the F-PACE can put information such as vehicle speed, turn-by-turn navigation instructions and speed limits right in the driver's eye line, minimizing the amount of time spent glancing down at the instrument cluster2. The color images are exceptionally sharp and are adjustable both in height and in brightness; the HUD can also be switched off if desired.
Laser technology offers several advantages over conventional TFT systems including excellent color saturation and higher contrast, so they remain clear even in bright sunlight.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist
As well as reducing driver workload when cruising on the highway, the Adaptive Cruise Control system (ACC), when equipped on the F-PACE, can also help to relieve the monotony of driving in heavy traffic, thanks to the queue-assist function. The long-range radar will maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, all the way down to a standstill2. Press the accelerator again, and the F-PACE will pull away again and track the vehicle in front, at a distance, all the way up to the chosen speed setting.
Blind Spot Monitor and Reverse Traffic Detection
By monitoring the area behind the vehicle, optional radar can assist the driver in other scenarios too. Medium-range sensors warn the driver of other vehicles approaching fast from behind. As they approach the blind spot, a flashing icon appears in the side mirror to alert the driver of the potential danger. As the vehicle enters the blind spot, the icon becomes solid2.
The same medium-radar sensors can help the driver at lower speeds too. When reversing out of parking spaces, other vehicles approaching from either side - which may not be visible to the driver - are detected by the radar. If they present a potential hazard, the driver is given audible and visual warnings.
To assist the driver with parking in small spaces, the F-PACE is available with semi-automated park assist functions for parallel and perpendicular parking maneuvers. The vehicle's ultrasonic sensors first measure the space, and, if the system decides that it's suitable, will enable the vehicle to steer itself in - the driver just has to control the accelerator and the brakes2. The system can also steer the vehicle out of parallel spaces.
INFOTAINMENT AND CONNECTIVITY
The F-PACE is equipped with the Jaguar InControl® Touch™ infotainment system as standard1. Featuring an 8-inch capacitive touchscreen, intuitive user interface and crisp clear graphics, it supports smartphone and tablet gestures such as 'swipe' to move from one page to another, and 'drag' to scroll through maps.
With navigation fitted to the vehicle, entering addresses is quicker and easier than with previous systems and routes are calculated faster thanks to SD card storage of navigation data. Maps are rendered in 2D and 3D graphics, making directions simple and intuitive to follow.
Turn-by-turn instructions can also be shown in the optional head-up display, leaving the driver free to concentrate on what matters most - the road ahead2.
Also available as an option, is the Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro infotainment system1. Designed and developed in-house around a quad-core processor, a high-speed 60GB solid-state drive (SSD) and an ultra-fast Ethernet network, InControl Touch Pro™ delivers truly world-class performance and an outstanding user experience.
The Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro infotainment system features a 10.2-inch touch-screen. Like a tablet, there are no buttons; all controls are integrated into the bottom section of the touch-screen, making interaction smooth and seamless. The home screen can be customized and widgets can be added - users can even add additional home screens if they wish1.
InControl Touch Pro has been designed to make every journey easier and more enjoyable. Navigation data stored on the high-speed SSD can be accessed in a fraction of the time required with conventional hard drive technology, making the graphics incredibly responsive. Users can zoom in and out of maps using 'pinch' and 'pan' gestures1.
Even when there's no GPS signal the system can still help drivers to stay on track with dead-reckoning functionality which analyzes data from the vehicle's sensors to accurately predict the vehicle's location.
Using the data connection to access location-based features adds another dimension to the system's capability. Search for a destination and the system will check if there's sufficient fuel to complete the journey. If not, this will be flagged and filling stations on the route that are within range are shown on the map: tapping on one of them is all it takes to add it as a waypoint.
It's also possible to share destination, current location and estimated time of arrival (ETA) with others via email or text message1. If your ETA slips, the system can automatically follow-up with an update.
Commute Mode learns an owner's daily drive so that it can offer alternative routes to avoid congestion using historical and real-time traffic information. Approach Mode adds a 360-deg interactive view of your destination alongside the map display when you're approximately 656-ft (200m away) - it can even show you where the nearest available parking lots are and then direct you to them. A dedicated companion app for iOS® and Android™ devices enables true door-to-door route planning and guidance and can help you to complete your journey on public transport or on foot.
InControl Touch Pro™ is offered in conjunction with a Meridian® 17-speaker, 825W surround sound system which delivers ideal sound reproduction with benchmark low levels of distortion.
The experience is enriched with Gracenote images stored on the SSD drive -- and functions such as 'Play more like this' which automatically compiles playlists, or Music Queue, which makes it easy to search for and add songs, albums or artists to a music queue the current track is still playing.
The modules within InControl Touch Pro are connected using ultra-fast Ethernet. This advanced network technology is more than five times faster than competing conventionally wired technologies. Jaguar is one of the very first vehicle manufacturers to use it.
Ethernet's main advantage is its incredible bandwidth: up to 1Gb/second. The potential to carry such massive amounts of data, together with the performance of the quad-core processor and the solid-state drive means that InControl Touch Pro will be able to offer even greater functionality in the future.
The all-new F-PACE also brings the world debut of Jaguar's Activity Key. A waterproof, shockproof wristband with an integrated transponder, this wearable technology supports active lifestyles because it allows the keyfob to be securely locked inside the vehicle - invaluable, for example, if you're going surfing or kayaking.
Locking the all-new F-PACE using the Activity Key will disable any keyfobs left inside the SUV. Activity Key works on the same RF frequencies as the other keys and is used to lock and unlock the vehicle by holding it in close proximity to the J of the Jaguar lettering on the tailgate. Activity Key has no battery, so owners never have to worry about changing it.
InControl suite of technologies
Jaguar InControl® Apps™ enables drivers to access apps on Android™ and Apple® smartphones using the InControl Touch™ and InControl Touch Pro™ infotainment systems1. After connecting the device using a USB cable and the dedicated port in the center console, compatible apps will be shown on the vehicle touch-screen. Optimized for in-vehicle use to reduce driver distraction, the range of approved third-party apps is growing constantly.
The F-PACE can be equipped to also function as a Wi-Fi hotspot, hosting up to eight devices simultaneously8. With a paid data plan, the integrated SIM card and the vehicle's antenna are used to provide a stable, reliable signal.
Jaguar InControl® Remote™ functionality allows users of iOS® and Android™ smartphones to connect to the car remotely to control car functions, including deactivating the alarm, locking or unlocking the doors, and remote heating or cooling the cabin through engine start.
If the vehicle is involved in a collision which triggers the airbags, InControl Protect™ will automatically notify the emergency services and provide the GPS location. The occupants can also manually trigger an emergency call by pressing a dedicated button in the roof console.
