The F-Pace adds Jaguar's SVR performance variant. With a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, the F-Pace SVR makes 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, directed through an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive. 15.5-inch front and 15.6-inch rear brake rotors will stop the beast. Like many performance vehicles, the F-Pace SVR's exhaust is variable, keeping it quiet when you want to prowl the neighborhood quietly, or letting its engine roar loudly on the highway. It will be priced right around $80,000 if you can keep your paws off the options.
The F-Type P300 (the new badging for the 4-cylinder turbochanged engine) now has the same 18.5 gallon fuel tank as the other models.
The Sport 400 model is discontinued.
The Driver Condition Monitor, which keeps an eye on steering motions to determine if a driving break is called for, is now standard on all models. Autonomous Emergency Braking is now standard on all models with automatic transmission.
This all-new electric sport utility is one of the few to be built on a dedicated platform. Designed from the beginning not to accomodate a conventional internal combustion engine, the I-Pace contains its batteries throughout the floorpan, ala Tesla. As in the Model X, this design lowers the center of gravity, helping the I-Pace to grip the road like a true jungle cat, silently stalking its highway pray with just the faintest hiss of the tires along the pavement.
394 peak horsepower is split evenly front to rear. Unlike conventional all-wheel-drive, there are no transfer cases or drive shafts, just two motors, front and rear, each delivering 197 horsepower.
XE SV Project 8 has the most powerful Jaguar 5-liter V8 so far: 592 horsepower. To make the power go further, the XE SV Project 8 is 75% aluminum and has a carbon fiber hood, fenders and bumpers. Jaguar promises a Zero to 60 MPH tim of just 3.3 seconds.
Carbon ceramic brakes save weight and will take repeated high speed stops without fading. At 15.8 inches front and 15.6 inches rear, they'll have plenty of stopping power. Overall 80% of the car's engineering is unique compared to the regualr Jaguar XE.
Only 300 of these extremely special sedans will be built, only half of which are coming to the United States. They were due as 2018 models and may still be branded as such.
A special edition comes with a sport front bumper, unique wheels, and gloss black exterior trim. It will be offered in red, white or black. Inside it offers the leather seats from the R-Sport and "Landmark" sill plates. It includes adaptive Xenon headlight, Pro satellite navigation and front and rear parking sensors. Any 4-cylinder engine in gas or diesel will be available.

Inside the XJ50 has quilted leather seats, an XJ50 logo on the center armrest, XJ50 lighted door sill plates, aluminum gearshift paddles, and bright metal accelerator and brake pedals.
