The 2023 Jaguar E-Pace has a simplified trim-level lineup and is limited to a single powertrain. It also gains more standard safety equipment but loses some optional premium features.
Choosing Your Jaguar E-PACE
The E-Pace is available in one trim level, the P250 SE All-Wheel Drive, and pricing starts at $49,050.
The only powertrain configuration available is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is mated to a nine-speed automatic. The engine’s 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque is distributed through a standard all-wheel-drive system.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Jaguar sits 173 inches in length, 74.7 inches in width, and 64.9 inches tall which is shorter but wider and taller than its three German rivals. Inside, the E-Pace provides 35.1 inches of rear legroom which measures less than the competition while cargo space can be increased from 22.4 cubic feet to 49.5 cubic feet with the seats folded which is average for the class. The Jaguar is rated to tow an impressive 4,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The E-Pace is fitted with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic monitor (newly standard for 2023), adaptive cruise control (also newly standard), lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high beams, and front and rear parking sensors. The Jaguar has not yet been rated by IIHS or NHTSA.
An 11.4-inch touchscreen display with navigation, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and remote connectivity is standard while Wi-Fi is offered for $400. Sound is produced through an 11-speaker Meridian sound system with a 400-watt amplifier and subwoofer or through 14 speakers with a 650-watt amplifier for $450. Charging duties are supplied by two front and three rear USB ports and a wireless charging pad.
The sole trim includes 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, taillights, and signature daytime running lights, heated power-folding mirrors with puddle lights and auto-dimming on the driver’s side, a power tailgate, and proximity entry.
The interior is equipped with a 12-way driver and 10-way passenger power-adjustable heated perforated leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, dual-zone climate control with rear HVAC vents, ambient lighting, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
There are several available noteworthy packages offered. The $400 Black Exterior Pack adds a gloss black grille, grille surrounds, window surrounds, side vent, and badging while the $3,000 Premium Black Pack further adds 21-inch gloss black wheels although it requires the $1,450 Dynamic Handling Pack that features adaptive dampers, additional chassis settings, and red brake calipers. The $650 Convenience Pack includes a hands-free power tailgate and additional power ports and the $950 Cold Climate Pack adds a heated steering wheel, heated washer jets, and a heated windshield.
A fixed glass panoramic roof will add $1,250 and expect to add $650 for exterior colors beyond the standard white. Heated rear seats are $500 and a head-up display is available for $1,000.
The Jaguar E-Pace has a higher base price than the competition but needs no additional options to feel like a premium compact crossover.
