Beneath the skin, the road-going Jaguar F-Pace will ride on the same aluminium architecture as the XE. It will also be available with similar engines including a selection of petrol and diesel four-cylinders possibly utilising forced induction in the form of twin-turbochargers in top-specification. Thanks to the lightweight architecture, it is hoped the F-Pace will weigh less than the Porsche Macan, its main rival.
Other details about the Jaguar F-Pace remain scarce but it is speculated that it will be available with four seats like the original C-X17 concept as well as five seats as showcased at the Guangzhou Auto Show 2013.
From a visual standpoint, a selection of characteristic Jaguar elements have been seen on recent prototypes. For starters, the production-spec Jaguar F-Pace will feature similar headlights and taillights to the C-X17 concept with the overall body almost identical in its shape. Additionally, the production-spec Jaguar F-Pace is expected to maintain many of the interior elements from the original concept.
