The hardcore Jag SUV should come packing a supercharged 5.0-liter V8.
Long have we seen the Jaguar F-Pace SVR testing; our most recent look at the hardcore SUV came near the Nürburgring, where a camouflaged prototype was spotted showing off its new performance credentials. But we won’t have to wait long to see the non-camouflaged product in person – Jaguar has officially announced the F-Pace SVR’s debut at the New York Auto Show later in the week.
According to Jaguar, it will be the "fastest and most powerful" version of the F-Pace SUV to date. Power should come from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. That same engine in the F-Type SVR delivers 567 horsepower (422 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, but it might be slightly detuned slightly for use in the F-Pace SUV. Suspension and brakes will also get an upgrade, and we expect a similar raucous exhaust note from the F-Type to carry over as well.
As far as design, not much will change from the standard model. Jaguar’s new hardcore F-Pace was designed and engineered in the U.K. by Special Vehicle Operations, but should maintain most of the original elements that helped it win World Car of the Year in 2017. Already we know that the SUV will gain features like larger wheels, a redesigned front bumper with significantly larger vents, and a slightly revised rear.
As far as pricing goes, the F-Pace starts at $42,065 in the U.S., but the SVR should be nearly twice that. With a price tag of around $80,000, the F-Type SVR would rival the Porsche Macan Turbo ($77,200) and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio ($79,995) both on the track, and on the dealer lot.
We should know more about the Jaguar F-Pace SVR when it makes its debut at the New York Auto Show in just a few days on March 28. The hardcore SUV should hit dealerships before the end of the year.

Jaguar Land Rover is proud to announce it will show three new vehicles at the New York Motor Show alongside the widest range in the history of the company.
Developed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, the F-PACE SVR is the fastest and most powerful version of this award-winning SUV. The F-PACE won the 2017 World Car of the Year (WCOTY) overall award and design award, as well as numerous other global awards. The all new F-PACE SVR is engineered in the UK by Special Vehicle Operations.
The Jaguar I-PACE is the electric vehicle drivers have been waiting for. Clean, smart and safe, I-PACE delivers sustainable sports car performance, next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) technology and five-seat SUV practicality to place Jaguar at the forefront of the EV revolution. With a state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery using 432 pouch cells, I-PACE delivers a range of up to 480km (WLTP cycle). Owners will be able to achieve a 0-80 per cent battery charge in 40 minutes using DC charging (150kW).
For the first time in the USA the full Jaguar SUV PACE family will be on display: the new electric I-PACE, the E-PACE compact performance SUV and the 2017 WCOTY-winning F-PACE, as well as the F-PACE SVR making its global debut.
Fifty years after Land Rover created the Range Rover, it brings to market the fastest and most luxurious Range Rover yet – the SV Coupé. A beautifully curated interior sets new standards for materials and craftsmanship, with extensive personalisation options for SV Coupé clients. Only 999 models will be available.
The SV Coupé is hand-assembled in the UK. A dramatic and desirable addition to the Range Rover portfolio, it combines a seductive body design and supremely refined interior that sets new standards for materials and craftsmanship.
Ahead of the show, Hollywood actor Ansel Elgort put his driving skills to the test behind the wheel of the all-electric I-PACE to take-on the Jaguar Smart Cone Challenge.
The Baby Driver star got a taste of the all-wheel drive agility and instant torque of Jaguar’s first electric vehicle (EV) in his native New York. With 400PS and 696Nm of torque, I-PACE offers acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds – allowing Ansel to prove his driving skill was more than a camera trick.
Filmed at Seret Studios in Brooklyn ahead of the I-PACE’s North American debut, the industrial, dockside location was the ideal place to demonstrate the speed and agility of the performance SUV. Watch Ansel’s performance here.
Jaguar Land Rover now has its largest range ever, demonstrating breadth of capability with design and engineering excellence at the forefront of every vehicle – cars that are packed with technology for good and are also safe, smart and clean.
