2017 Jaguar F-Pace: AutoGuide.com Utility of the Year Contender

Donít let its shape and stature fool you: The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is nothing short of a sports car masquerading as a family-hauling sport utility.

That performance prowess makes it a bit of an awkward fit as a finalist for AutoGuide.comís 2017 Utility of the Year, but it doesnít make it any less deserving than the rest of this yearís contenders. As far as first forays go, this effort from Jaguar to break into the sport utility segment is a pretty impressive one. Of course, the Jaguar F-Pace does have the benefit of being related to a long line of Land Rover products, but none this side of the Range Rover Sport SVR are anywhere near this sporty.

The F-Pace can be dressed up in six different trim packages, with the choice of diesel or gas engines under the hood. The gas-powered choices are obviously more performance-oriented, with the tiny diesel domesticating this Jag somewhat. The gas engines available in the F-Pace include two versions of the same supercharged V6 used throughout the Jaguar Land Rover lineup, with output peaking at 380 horsepower to go along with 332 lb-ft of torque. A new turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine has been added to the F-Pace for the 2018 model year, but it wasnít ready in time to qualify for this yearís testing. All engines come bolted to an eight-speed automatic transmission built by ZF, which sends power to all four wheels.
