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 February 2018

Where Did We Drive It?
It seems that the slow 31 days from our January update bled into the 28 days of February for our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. The F-Pace served in roles familiar to us all: going to work, going home, and running errands. Not exactly exciting, but routine in the way that we aim for in these tests, which is to show the true ownership experience for these cars.

In February, we chose to address a couple of recalls, visit the dealer for scheduled maintenance, and investigate a possible leak in the coolant system. More on that below.

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

by Mike Schmidt, Senior Manager, Vehicle Testing Operations

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.

Where Did We Drive It?

Our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace has been in the fleet for about five months now, and as a result our attentions are turning more toward the details of our Burgundy Brit. While the driving dynamics continue to impress, as does some of the functionality, a few other notable bits are coming to the fore. After all, just because something looks cool doesn't mean it isn't irritating.

Where Did We Drive It?
Our long-term 2017 Jaguar F-Pace got to stretch its legs on a trip from L.A. to Sacramento and back at the hands of editor Travis Langness. Outside of that, it was business as usual among the Southland's commuters, but at least it looks great doing it.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace: Monthly Update for April 2017

Where Did We Drive It?
Our 2017 Jaguar F-Pace arrived to our office late March, and we've already logged 2,585 miles on the odometer. Early consensus? We like driving this thing.

I took the F-Pace up to Santa Barbara for a weekend family get-together. We had our 50-pound dog in the backseat, and the rear cargo area filled with all kinds of baked goods, clothes and dog accessories. Jaguar says there's 33.5 cubic feet of storage back there, and we used every last piece of real estate.

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.
