Jaguar E-Pace updated with new engine, suspension and AI tech

13 June 2018

Jaguar has announced a handful of updates for the E-Pace, including a new entry-level petrol engine and adaptive suspension, for the European market.

The Jaguar E-PACE is available to order at United Kingdom retailers now priced from £28,500.

The self-learning Smart Setting technology will apparent learn the driver's habits to learn about them and anticipate their needs. The system recognises different drivers based on which key they used to unlock/start the vehicle and the Bluetooth signal from their phone, then adjusts various parameters to suit. That's a feature that many vehicles already offer, but Jaguar's goes further by integrating artificial intelligence to learn the driver's preferences based not only on how he or she left it last, but incorporate time, location, weather, and behavior patterns to adjust settings more intelligently. Up to eight profiles can be set up on the Jaguar E-PACE.

It also comes with a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, Pro Services, and Navigation Pro - offering real-time traffic information, door-to-door routing from your smartphone, street view and parking availability.

The updates to Coventry's baby crossover include a new engine, suspension, and suite of convenience features. Adaptive Dynamics uses continuously variable damper technology with a triple-tube design and externally mounted hydraulic valves. The intelligent set-up delivers faster responses and a dedicated off-road tune.

Drivers can select Normal and Dynamic settings for the Adaptive Dampers through the Configurable Dynamics menu in the Jaguar Drive Control system. It responds to the driver's input and road surface changes to provide better control and minimise body roll.

The new Ingenium four-cylinder turbo petrol produces 147kW of power, good for a claimed 7.7-second sprint to 60mph (97km/h) and 34.4mpg (8.2L/100km) on the combined cycle.

All engines in the range are equipped with particulate filters to make them cleaner, which can trap ultra-fine particulates as the exhaust gases pass through.
