The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace just got a thorough facelift. While the exterior changes are minor, the interior sees an all-new design and layout. Jaguar has also given the new F-Pace a plethora of mild-hybrid (MHEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains.
Exterior changes for the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace include a newly designed front end, which features a new LED headlight design that features Jaguar’s new “Double J Blade” daytime running lights. There’s also a slightly larger grille and new front and rear bumpers. Moving towards the sides, and you’ll see that the side fender vents have been redesigned. At the back, there are a new pair of LED taillights with a sleeker design, along with a redesigned tailgate.
Moving inside, and you’ll see that the interior has been significantly updated. There’s a completely new dashboard design that houses a “floating” 11.4-inch touch screen. The giant screen is housed in a magnesium casing and it features Jaguar Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro operating system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come as standard, while a 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster is available as an option. All of the electronics are powered by Jaguar Land Rover’s Electronic Vehicle Architecture, in which all vehicle systems are capable of over-the-air (OTA) updates. Elsewhere, the new interior features significantly more premium materials and a much better build quality than its predecessor.
The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace features a plethora of MHEV powertrains and a single PHEV powertrain.
