Jaguar is working on the mid-life refresh of the F-Pace, with our spies spotting a camouflaged test car parked on a public road in Spain.
In fact the car was fully covered with the swirly wrap and had even its exhausts under a protective cover. The facelift is expected to bring new headlights and taillights employing the latest advancements in LED technology, redesigned bumpers and side skirts and a whole slew of updated active safety features.
The interior is also getting an upgrade, similar to that of the facelifted XE; that means that the F-Pace is getting a healthy dose of new displays inside, including a new digital instrument cluster, a bigger infotainment screen and a touchscreen for the HVAC controls.
The new onboard tech will be paired with new trim and color options, a redesigned steering wheel and gear selector, as well as ambient lighting.
The main changes however will come in the powertrain department; the F-Pace will continue being offered with a range of turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol units, as well as a few diesel options for customers in Europe.
Jaguar is also expected to add the new inline-six mild-hybrid 3.0-liter unit, which makes 395 HP and 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque in the case of the Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Defender.
We still don’t know if the V8-powered F-Pace SVR will survive the facelift but if we had to take a guess, we would say it will, since the high-performance SUV has been on the market for less than a year.
Jaguar is expected to reveal the facelifted version of the F-Pace some time in early 2020, with a market launch to take place a few months later. Until then, stay tuned.
