2020 Jaguar E-Pace U.S. Lineup Welcomes $46,400 Checkered Flag Edition

Jaguar USA has released details about the latest addition to the 2020 E-Pace SUV range: the Checkered Flag Limited Edition.

Already available in Europe, the special edition E-Pace brings unique design enhancements and upgraded standard specification for a starting MSRP of $46,400, excluding a $995 destination fee.

For the money, customers get a flashier exterior featuring R-Dynamic body-colored front and rear bumpers, twin tailpipes, and LED headlamps with signature J-blade daytime running lights. The limited-run E-Pace also gains a Black Exterior Pack, ‘Checkered Flag’ exterior side badging and 19-inch Satin Dark Grey wheels. There are three exterior colors available: Photon Red (exclusive to this model), Corris Grey, and Yulong White.

Inside, the E-Pace Checkered Flag features branded tread plates, Ebony Grained Leather upholstery with red stitching, R-Dynamic branded Soft Grain Leather Sport steering wheel, black gearshift paddles, and an Ebony Morzine headliner. The list of standard features is extensive and includes a powered tailgate, keyless entry, 10-way heated front seats, a fixed panoramic roof, and 12.3-inch TFT Interactive Driver Display.

The 2020 E-Pace Checkered Flag Edition is powered by a 246 HP (250 PS) 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine with standard AWD.

If you find the special edition model’s price excessive, the base 2020 Jaguar E-Pace P250 AWD featuring the same powertrain starts at $39,950. The range also includes the P300 R-Dynamic AWD model powered by a 296 hp (300 PS) turbo-four available from $46,600 (both prices excluding $995 destination).

Besides the introduction of the Checkered Flag Edition, 2020 model year updates for all E-Pace models include standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and offer new available features including the Smart Settings self-learning driver recognition feature and Adaptive Dynamics system.

    That’s a dreadful design. It almost seems like a dressed up HR-V, and $40K on the base model, no thanks.

    Jaguar needs to try harder than this.
