Jaguar introduces the refreshed 2021 E-Pace CUV, featuring enhancements to its design, performance and in-vehicle technology.
Joining the F-Pace and all-electric I-Pace in the utility-vehicle lineup accounting for most Jaguar brand sales in the U.S., the E-Pace is available in three trim levels: P250, P250SE and 300 Sport.
The exterior of the E-Pace features a revised front lower aperture design with a blade element running through it and all-LED headlights for what Jaguar calls a more assertive presence. The grille is finished with a mesh design with chrome detailing.
The focal point of the updated interior is a curved 11.4-in. (29-cm) high-definition touchscreen integrated into the central instrument panel.
The touchscreen operates Jaguar’s Pivi Pro infotainment system that is standard on the P250SE and 300 Sport. Pivi, which supports navigation via smartphone using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, is standard on P250.
The ’21 E-Pace receives powertrain and performance upgrades. The CUV is offered with a choice of two 2.0L turbocharged 4-cyls., each paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
A 246-hp engine is standard on P250 and P250 SE, while mild-hybrid technology boosts the 300 Sport’s output to 296 hp. All-wheel drive is standard on all models.
Updates to the chassis architecture of the refreshed E-Pace deliver enhanced dynamics, comfort and convenience, Jaguar says. New engine mounts help improve throttle response, while the chassis structure reduces interior noise, vibration and harshness.
Jaguar says the ’21 E-Pace is the entry point into the Jaguar brand for U.S. customers. Pricing starts at $40,995 for P250 AWD, $46,095 for P250 SE and $49,995 for 300 Sport.
