Still powered by the 542bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8, the 2021 F-PACE SVR arrives with a fresh face, a new interior, and better performance.
The SVO-flavoured performance version of Jaguar's flagship SUV has been refreshed for next year. The 2021 F-PACE SVR follows the design cues of the facelifted F-PACE and gets a handful of new features, improved mechanicals, and enhanced performance specs.
The 2021 F-PACE SVR features the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 that powers the outgoing model, which is rated at 542bhp and 700Nm. Fans would have noticed that the torque rating has gone up from 680Nm, but the power output is unchanged. Thanks to a revised torque curve and the addition of a new 'Dynamic Launch' function, the 2021 F-PACE SVR dismisses the 100km/h mark in 4 seconds – 0.3 seconds quicker than before. The power is sent to all four wheels via a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic gearbox linked to an Active AWD system and SV-tuned Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD).
Other mechanical/dynamic improvements come in the form of uprated brakes, new speed-sensitive steering rack with SV-specific tuning, and retuned dampers & electronically-controlled active rear differential.
Visually, the 2021 F-PACE SVR gets a new and sharper-looking face, thanks to the new bodywork. The SVR-spec front bumper is new, and so are the LED headlamps/taillamps and the 22-inch forged wheels. The X-shape design element at the front cuts into the brake cooling vents, which are now bigger. The cooling vents and the radiator grille both feature a mesh design inspired by the XE SV Project 8. The rear valance, which houses the quad tailpipes, has also been revised. Thanks to the new bodywork, the lift has decreased by up to 35% and the drag coefficient has gone down by 3%.
The interior, once again, has been carried over from the facelifted F-PACE.
