The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace is a mid-size luxury SUV with premium features and efficient performance. It’s the largest SUV in the Jaguar lineup. It’s bigger than the smaller E-Pace and more affordable than the all-electric I-Pace SUV.
The five-passenger F-Pace was refreshed last year and enters 2022 with few changes. In addition to its great looks, the F-Pace is powerful, fuel-efficient, and offers a comfortable ride.
The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace distinguishes itself from many other luxury SUVs and seems to be in a class of its own. The quality of the sheet metal is superior to many of its rivals in its class. About 80 percent of the F-Paced is made with aluminum, reducing weight and strengthening its body structure.
Although it competes with other mid-size luxury SUVs like Mercedes-Benz GLE, Porsche Cayenne, and BMW X5, it maintains Jaguar’s motoring heritage. I test drove the 2022 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S model, which was roomy, practical, and fun to drive.
Models/Price: The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace comes in four different configurations: P250 ($52,050), P250 S ($55,150), P340 S ($60,750), and the P400 R-Dynamic S ($66,650 MSRP).
Power: The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace offers three engine options: the base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder six-cylinder that generates 246 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder that produces 335 horsepower, and a supercharged six that gets 395 horses. All models are all-wheel drive and have an eight-speed automatic transmission tuned for sporty performance.
Fuel Economy: The EPA rates the F-Pace’s four-cylinder at 22 city/27 highway mpg. The six-cylinder averages 20 city/27 highway mpg.
All F-Pace models have standard collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
They also include a standard 11.4-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, controls for the Meridian stereo system with 14 speakers, and optional built-in navigation.
To overcome past perceptions of maintenance problems, Jaguar offers the best coverage in the segment, including extended complimentary scheduled maintenance and a powertrain warranty for five years or 60,0000 miles.
