First Drive: 2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar wants to sell more vehicles. The 2017 F-Pace is the one that will surely lead the way for the brand. Alongside the new XE, the F-Pace is set to bring more folks into Jaguar dealerships. In fact, there’s already a waiting list to get the sporty luxury crossover in its home country of England.
We settled in behind the wheel for a first impression of the F-Pace and sampled it along the curvy mountainous roads of Aspen, Colorado. It’s a dual-natured machine that is certainly most at home on the road, but just might surprise you when the tarmac gives way to dirt.
If you were thinking if getting the Range Rover Sport, perhaps you should pause and seriously consider the (better looking) Jaguar F-Pace…
[Disclaimer: Jaguar flew us to Aspen and put us up in a swanky hotel. There was food and booze consumed as well.]

    A nice truck, by the looks of things.
    Long waits are not that unusual in Europe as a large part of cars are made to order. Back in 2003 it took about five months to get my Focus.

      There’s similar wait times for Golf Rs, dealers generally don’t tend to keep lots of models, especially the “go faster” ones in stock. A Golf R demo in places like Ireland might be shuffled around betweeen several dealers and you have to book the test drive if you want to try it out. It’s kinda annoying, but at the same time, nice to spec your car exactly how you want.

    Hands up everyone who regularly reads this site and is seriously considering a Range Rover Sport. I won’t start things off.

      By “Range Rover Sport” you mean a ran-when-parked first generation Range Rover that has a sporting chance of ever making it back on the road, right?

      I’m not considering one because I have no money. Had I larger disposable income, I could be persuaded to have one, but preferably the full size RR TDV8 as wifemobile/tow car, for science like.

    I don’t exactly care for it existing, but I’ll give Jag credit that in their first shot they built the only crossover that matters.

    Maybe if they put some wood on the dash I’d go for it.
