Jaguar announced that its latest vehicle the Jaguar F-Pace, a performance crossover SUV, was recently subjected to one of the most demanding test programmes the company has ever devised.
For the first time ever in a Jaguar test programme, the F-Pace was driven over gravelled mountain passes, said a statement from the company.
The vehicle was also tested at Jaguar Land Rover’s test facility in Northern Sweden, where average winter temperatures rarely exceed minus 15°C and often plummet to below 40°C, providing an ideal environment for optimising the calibration of the all-wheel drive system, dynamic stability control, as well as technologies such as Jaguar’s revolutionary All-Surface Progress Control, it added.
Alternatively, the ambient temperatures in Dubai can exceed 50°C in the shade, while cabin temperatures can soar up to 70°C, which is exactly what is needed to ensure that everything from climate control systems to infotainment touchscreens and cooling systems function perfectly in extreme heat and humidity, said the statement.
Andrew Whyman, vehicle programme director of Jaguar F-Pace, said: “We developed the F-Pace to offer the ride, handling and refinement demanded from a Jaguar, together with exceptional levels of ability and composure on all surfaces and in all weathers.”
“Just as we paid obsessive attention to detail in the engineering of every single component, we’ve exhaustively tested the vehicle in the most challenging conditions to ensure that it will exceed the expectations of our customers worldwide,” he added.
