Jaguar Put Its F-Pace SUV to the Test in Extreme Weather Conditions
Jaguar is currently running the company’s new F-Pace crossover SUV through its paces. No pun intended. The crossover is set to make its formal debut at this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show, which is only a month away. As the vehicle gets closer to being released, the company has almost forgone all cladding, and all camouflage for this latest group of photographs and short video.

The photos and video come from the extreme weather testing in both the deserts of Dubai and the icy tundra of Northern Sweden. As you’ll see in the video below, Jaguar is making sure that the F-Pace not only looks and sounds good, but that it can also tackle anything that stands in its way. And honestly, from the video below, the new F-Pace crossover seems to be able to do whatever it wants, wherever it wants. Jaguar engineers have built what appears to be a hugely capable little SUV.

While the F-Pace prototype undergoes extreme weather testing, it also acted as a support vehicle for the first leg of this year’s Tour de France for Team Sky. That means it should be as capable on the road as it is off it.
With luxury and sportscar companies developing more SUV’s, quite a few people were concerned that these introductions would water down the brands. If cars like the Porsche Cayenne and Macan are any example, they have the power to boost a brand's overall recognition and performance. At least, that's what Jaguar hopes when the car debuts on September 15th at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
