Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Jaguar’s first SUV

Jaguar’s new F-PACE will have its world pre­miere at the Frank­furt Mo­tor Show next month.

Be­fore it goes on sale next year the new SUV has been tested to the limit in the sear­ing heat and dust of Dubai to the ice and snow of North­ern Swe­den. The new F-PACE has faced some of the most in­hos­pitable en­vi­ron­ments on earth and met the chal­lenge.

Jaguar’s claim the per­for­mance cross­over of­fers an un­ri­valled blend of per­for­mance, de­sign and prac­ti­cal­ity.

To en­sure that ev­ery sys­tem func­tions per­fectly even un­der the most ex­treme con­di­tions, the new F- PACE has been sub­jected to one of the most de­mand­ing test pro­grammes the com­pany has ever de­vised.

“We de­vel­oped the F-PACE to of­fer the ride, han­dling and re­fine­ment de­manded from a Jaguar, to­gether with ex­cep­tional lev­els of abil­ity and com­po­sure on all sur­faces and in all weath­ers.

“Just as we paid ob­ses­sive at­ten­tion to de­tail over the en­gi­neer­ing of ev­ery sin­gle com­po­nent, we’ve ex­haus­tively tested the F-PACE in the most chal­leng­ing con­di­tions to en­sure that it will ex­ceed the ex­pec­ta­tions of our cus­tomers around the world,” said

An­drew Why­man, Ve­hi­cle Pro­gramme Di­rec­tor.

At Jaguar Land Rover’s test fa­cil­ity in Ar­je­plog, North­ern Swe­den, av­er­age win­ter tem­per­a­tures rarely ex­ceed -15°C and of­ten plum­met to -40°C. The 60km of pur­pose­built han­dling tracks, moun­tain climbs, in­clines, split-fric­tion straights and off-road ar­eas are ideal for op­ti­mis­ing the cal­i­bra­tion

Looker the F-PACE has been tested to the limit
