2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Monthly Update for March 2018

by Brent Romans, Senior Editor

2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Where Did We Drive It?
Time is running out on our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. We've got about one month to go before we wrap up our yearlong test. Tempting as it may have been to, say, send off the SUV on some sort of grand adventure in March (like driving to Alaska as an encore to our Jag XF trip years ago), we mostly stayed close to home. Notable highlights included replacing the windshield and taking it on a short family road trip for the Easter holiday. This month we also managed to eke out slightly better fuel economy than we're accustomed to, but we also fell short of our monthly mileage target.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Monthly Update for November 2017

Where Did We Drive It?
November was a relatively quiet month for our long-term 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. It stayed close to home, touring the Los Angeles basin and occasionally voyaging beyond the Orange Curtain (that's Orange County for you non-locals). As such, it was a light month, milewise, for the big British SUV.

Nevertheless, we learned some new things about it.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Monthly Update for October 2017

Where Did We Drive It?
As expected, we did our normal commuting and the like in our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace in October. But I did manage to head up to Northern California for a weekend getaway with my wife. As you'll see in the following comments, I was a little underwhelmed with the F-Pace's long-distance touring abilities.

Overall, though, our Jag is running strong and earning a lot of favorable comments as it heads into the second half of our yearlong test.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Monthly Update for September 2017

2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Where Did We Drive It?
September was a month that found our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace on the road often. We subjected the Jaguar to its share of stop-and-go angst. That's to be expected on Los Angeles roadways. But over the past few weeks, we also got out of town and stretched its legs a bit. The result was above-average mileage accumulation and an increase in overall fuel economy.

A long weekend of golf. A hiking trip. A drive to grandmother's house. These trips added up to extended time behind the wheel. And they shined light on a handful of characteristics that we may not have noticed during shorter drives. Road noise, air conditioning, child seats and even sun visors received special attention this month. Read on to learn why.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Introduction

by Mark Takahashi, Senior Writer

2017 Jaguar F-Pace

For the last couple of years, SUVs have outsold sedans, and the trend shows no signs of slowing. Mercedes-Benz entered the SUV market in 1997, followed by BMW in 1999, Porsche in 2002 and Audi in 2005. Here we are in 2017 and finally Jaguar enters the ring with the F-Pace.

We've evaluated the F-Pace on a short-term basis and it received favorable scores in a number of categories. It proved it was more than just a pretty face thanks to its impressive performance, general interior comfort and surprising amount of cargo space.

Since it went on sale in September of 2016, the F-Pace has become the best-selling Jaguar in the company's 72-year history. Our recent track record with long-term Jags has also been favorable, with no mechanical issues to report with our 2012 XF or 2015 F-Type Coupe. We'll be interested to see if this 2017 Jaguar F-Pace will continue that trajectory and confirm our positive initial impressions.
