Jaguar Updates Its F-PACE SVR With Increased Torque & A 178MPH Top Speed

Jaguar’s F-PACE SVR was already of the genre’s most celebrated performance SUVs, clocking in at a substantial 550 horsepower, and 502 lb-ft of torque. For 2021, however, the brand has decided to gift the elegant platform with a number of notable equipment changes, as well as an improved infotainment system for on-the-go navigation.

The 2021 F-PACE SVR kicks things off with a number of proposed changes to its suspension, braking, and steering systems, pairing nicely with the SUV’s newly-adopted (and more aerodynamic) design. As it turns out, the SVR’s visual update has resulted in a smaller drag coefficient, thanks to the addition of new apertures, vents, enlarged lower intakes, and a revised rear bumper, helping it to stick to the roadway like never before. At its heart, a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine produces the same 550 horsepower as last year’s model but raises the stakes with an improved 516 lb-ft of torque — 14 more than its predecessor. As a result, the SUV now boasts a top speed of 178 miles-per-hour, making it around two miles-per-hour faster than the previous model. To round things out, a dimpled leather — complete with a split-rim steering wheel and zinc-alloy shift paddles — sets the stage for the introduction of an elegant, 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen. Look for the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR to hit the showroom floor at an $84,600 price point.
