After launching last year with only a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine (in the F-Pace 20d) and a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 (in the 35t model), the F-Pace for 2018 wins a four-cylinder turbo petrol as its base engine in the new 25t variant. Since Jaguar finally tossed its ubiquitous Ford four-cylinder engine five times faster, the F-Pace’s entry-level four-cylinder turbo engine is inspired by the same family of Ingenium engines as those of the 20d diesel. Designed in-house by Jaguar, the gasoline engine is also present in the XE and XF base sedans this year. Like the V-6 diesel and gasoline engines of the F-Pace, the Ingenium four is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with all-wheel drive.
