Jaguar Launches The Chequered Flag Edition Of The E-Pace SUV

Jaguar has debuted a new special edition model of the E-Pace SUV —the Chequered Flag Edition. The new variant is an improved version of the range-topping R-Dynamic model with a number of performance and styling enhancements. The SUV, which also features a distinctive color scheme, is available now with prices starting from £40,050 or $53,000.

The Jaguar E-Pace Chequered Flag Edition includes new 19-inch alloy wheels, a range of “Chequered Flag” badges, an exclusive set of tread plates and a choice of four select colors. In addition the vehicle features a sports body kit, twin tailpipes, LED headlights and Jaguar’s Black Exterior Pack, which are also found in the E-Pace R-Dynamic.

The interior of the E-Pace Chequered Flag Edition is equipped with an R-Dynamic sports steering wheel, black shift paddles, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and heated front seats, which are trimmed in Ebony Grained Leather with red stitching. The vehicle is also fitted with a new 10-inch infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Buyers can choose from four engines options, including the automaker’s turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which produces either 148bhp and 380Nm of torque or 178bhp and 430Nm of torque. The engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system.

Jaguar also offers two petrol options, including a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit in two states of tune. The first model produces 197bhp and 320Nm of torque, while the second one has 246bhp and 365Nm of torque. Both are paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.

Additionally, the E-Pace Chequered Flag Edition features Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics system, which reportedly delivers improved handling and ride comfort by adapting the E-Pace’s damping and body roll to different road surfaces. Optional extras will also be provided, including a load-space partition net, Matrix LED headlights and the automaker’s newly-introduced pet-pack.
