Continuing their teasing campaign for the new Jaguar F-PACE SUV, which they seem to be really enjoying, JLR has now released a detailed account of how the engineers have setup the car’s chassis and suspension. If you are an engineer, you are going to find the information that follows delightful. If you are like normal, you will be bored. So apologizes in advance.
JLR engineers are confident they will set a new benchmark for vehicle dynamics with the Jaguar F-PACE, for they have spent a great deal of time and money devising a unique chassis for it. The SUV utilizes F-Type’s technologies such as Torque Vectoring for agility and on-road performance, and mixes it up with rough and tumble suspension for the sake of off-road capability.
Relying on its sophisticated Lightweight Aluminium Architecture for precision and control, Jaguar F-Pace comes with Double Wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension tuned to perfection on a variety of surfaces. Then there is the electronic stuff, such as Electric Power-Assisted Steering system and Torque Vectoring that works in tandem with on-demand all-wheel-drive.
“We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-PACE must be a true Jaguar and deliver the Jaguar dynamics DNA”, says Mike Cross. “We’ve tested ride and handling to extremities in all environments and in all conditions, and the result is that the new F-PACE is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is going to be enjoyable to own. As soon as you get into the vehicle you know immediately that it’s a great place to be.”
Jaguar F-Pace will be officially unveiled at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
