The 2021 F-Pace was appear with four trim levels to start: the 250 and S 250, the added able S 340 and the accepted top-of-the-line R Dynamic S 400. Notably absent from this advertisement is an SVR version, which adopted the supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 and adorable bankrupt agenda (in accession to added go-fast bits) from the F-Type R.

From the outside, the changes to the F-Pace for 2021 are subtle. The headlights are slimmer and affection Jaguar’s new signature “Double J Blade” lighting pattern. A redesigned avant-garde grille and bonanza air intakes forth with a added sculpted awning accord the F-Pace a added alarming attending from the front.
In back, new taillights use the “chicane” arrangement Jaguar debuted on the all-electric I-Pace. Jaguar redesigned the rear bumper, as well, to added enhance the SUV’s adventurous appearance.
Much bigger changes appear central the F-Pace. All 2021 F-Paces will appear accepted with acrimonious seats, keyless access and a 14-speaker Meridian stereo.

Other autogenous updates accommodate a redesigned accessory selector batten featuring “cricket-ball” bond … which is apparently advantageous if you’d like to convenance a array of bowling grips.

Missing from the 2021 F-Pace’s agent calendar is one four-cylinder agent best as able-bodied as the ahead mentioned SVR’s supercharged V-8. While it seems acceptable the SVR will be appear separately, it additionally seems acceptable that the added able four-cylinder is gone in the name of calendar simplification.
