What kind of vehicle is the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace? What does it compare to?
The 2023 Jaguar F-Pace is a luxury crossover with seating for five. It offers up sporty moves backed up by turbocharged punch, as well as an elegant cabin and plenty of technology. It’s closely related to the Land Rover Range Rover Velar and it’s worth comparing the two, and higher-end configurations of the Mercedes GLC-Class and BMW X3 are contenders, as well.
Is the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace a good SUV?

It’s hardly the value proposition of its class, but the F-Pace offers up an appealing combination of subtle styling, suave road manners, and a refined lineup of powertrains. Its profile and lines are getting on in years, but it’s aging gracefully enough to earn a TCC Rating of 6.6 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
What’s new for the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace?
For 2023, Jaguar drops the P340 engine from the lineup. This engine powered the entry-level inline-6 F-Pace model, so now there’s a gap of nearly $10,000 between the 4-cylinder (P250 engine) F-Pace S and the 6-cylinder (P400 engine) F-Pace R-Dynamic S. Aside from that, Jaguar’s added Amazon Alexa availability and made some minor adjustments to the features menu.
With this year’s change to the engine lineup, the F-Pace is down to three basic forms, all of which feature all-wheel drive standard. The base model, P250, features a 246-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The P400 steps up with a turbo- and supercharged inline-6 engine rated for 395 hp, and though it features mild-hybrid technology, it’s more for power than efficiency. At the top of the range, the F-Pace SVR pushes out 542 hp from its supercharged V-8.
Of the mix, we’d spend our money on the 6-cylinder model. We preferred last year’s P340 configuration to the P400, but the inline-6 still offers the best balance between price and performance.
You won’t find a rough ride or sloppy handling in the F-Pace lineup. All offer comfort and sophistication, although the 31.5-cubic-foot cargo capacity is a notable drawback. Focus instead on the beautiful cabin, the user-friendly infotainment system, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
There’s no crash-test data available for the F-Pace, as its low sales volume means it hasn’t been smacked around by the NHTSA or the IIHS, which isn’t uncommon for performance and luxury vehicles. Jaguar offers up a long list of safety tech, though most competitors offer some form of hands-free system.
How much does the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace cost?
Budget about $53,700 to start out for an F-Pace P250 powered by the 246-hp turbo-4. The F-Pace S, with the same turbo-4, adds more features and comes in at about $57,300.
From there, it’s a big leap to the F-Pace R-Dynamic S P400, which starts at just over $66,000. The F-Pace SVR starts out at about $91,000.
Where is the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace made?
At Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant in the United Kingdom.
