2019 Jaguar F-Pace: Here are all the updates for Jag’s SUV

4 min read

Long gone are the days where safety systems meant antilock brakes, and maybe traction and stability control. Nowadays, we have several more initialisms to learn. Look no further than the updated 2019 Jaguar F-Pace, which can be had with many things, including: AdSR, LFL, ASPC, LKA, TSR+ and ACC. That’s Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR), which changes several settings to aid traction on various surfaces; Low Friction Launch (LFL), which slows down the throttle response to aid acceleration in slippery conditions; ASPC is All Surface Progress Control, a system that functions like a low-speed, off-road cruise control. As long as you're moving faster than 2.2 mph and slower than 18.6, this system will keep the F-Pace chugging along in whatever muddy two-track you decide to throw at it.

LKA, TSR+ and ACC are meant for nice, dry roads. Lane Keep Assist, perhaps the most familiar here, uses a stereo camera and electric power steering to nudge the F-Pace back in line if the system notices any wandering. TSR+ is an upgrade from TSR (duh) and stands for Traffic Sign Recognition. The plus is Jaguar’s way of saying the system can read more signs than before to keep the driver aware of various speeds limits, even during construction and while towing. Finally, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) will bring the F-Pace all the way to a stop in clogged traffic and resume its efforts once the driver taps the throttle. 

Got all that?

Going beyond software and sensors, Jaguar also updated the interior with a suede cloth headliner, a frameless rearview mirror and illuminated doorsill plates, along with optional carbon-fiber trim pieces. For good measure, a 10-inch touchscreen is now standard equipment. In the grand scheme of things, this a relatively minor update. The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four cylinder engine can make either 247 or 296 hp and is attached to the same eight-speed ZF sourced automatic transmission. There’s a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 worth 380 hp available too, as before. 

Coming later this year is a 550-hp F-Pace SVR, which has the potential to be delightful. More on that once one of us gets the chance to drive it.
