Jaguar will offer two versions of the E-Pace at launch, both powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4. The base E-Pace offers 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque and above this is the E-Pace R-Dynamic which sports the same engine but a spicier 296 hp and 295 lb-ft. In both versions there’s a 9-speed automatic and all-wheel drive as standard. Configurable electronic chassis systems will be offered as an option.
There are two engines on offer in the US. The standard E-Pace comes with a 2.0-liter I4 good for 246 horsepower. The E-Pace R-Dynamic, which rocks a set of sportier design cues inside and out — including gloss black trim, sport seats and a more aggressive front bumpers — also packs a 2.0-liter I4, but it puts out 296 horsepower, which is a modest bump.
It also is the first Jaguar model to get the brand’s redesigned full-color, high-resolution driver’s-side windshield graphics display system, providing personalized data on speed, navigation, music and safety.
“The combination of sports car looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-Pace stands out,” Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum said of the design.
