Jaguar expands the F-Pace lineup. The new trim levels offer SUV buyers additional options if they want more power but don’t want the price of a top-spec model.
Now, the British automaker is adding the F-Pace 400 Sport and 300 Sport, both new trim levels that clearly rely on sporty appeal. Both serve as the next best option for a V8-powered F-Pace SVR.
Visually, the F-Pace 400 Sport and 300 Sport are identical. Available in new premium grays called Carpathian Gray and Charente Grey, they come in a Black Package, which should add privacy glass and glossy black roof rails.
The default wheels use a set of 21-inch “Style 5105” wheels that come with a separate five-spoke design and a glossy black finish. Customers can choose to upgrade to 22-inch “Style 1020” forged wheels, which can come in glossy black with satin black inserts, or glossy silver with contrast inserts. There are some cabin upgrades too, like Amazon Alexa integration for added connectivity.
What sets the two apart is the powertrain. The 400 Sport comes with a 3.0-liter Ingenium petrol MHEV engine that is both turbocharged and supercharged, producing 400 metric horses (hence the name). This equates to 395 horsepower (295 kilowatts), paired with 406 pound-feet (500 Newton-meters) of towing.
The F-Pace 300 Sport, on the other hand, features a 3.0-liter Ingenium six-cylinder diesel MHEV that uses an advanced series-sequential turbocharging system. It puts out 300 metric horses which equates to 296 hp (221 kW), along with 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. This engine option is also available for the R-Dynamic SE and HSE trims.
For the record, there are no suspension adjustments for these two new Jaguar F-Pace trims.
The diesel-powered Jaguar F-Pace 300 Sport retails for £62,250 or $80,979 at current exchange rates. The F-Pace 400 Sport petrol has a sticker price of £68,520 ($89,135). Availability in the US is expected although the automaker has not disclosed when.
