The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE has been named Best Luxury Utility vehicle by the nationally broadcast television series MotorWeek as part of its annual Drivers’ Choice Awards. Presented during the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, these awards recognize the best new cars and trucks throughout the industry.
Designed and engineered to offer the agility, responsiveness and refinement that all Jaguar models are renowned for, the F-PACE has taken Jaguar DNA and added enhanced practicality and space. The Drivers’ Choice Award is the latest in an ever-growing list of industry honors that the F-PACE has received since its 2016 introduction, and acknowledges the brand’s successful delivery of a performance SUV that truly resonates with consumers.
“We are honored to have the F-PACE recognized by MotorWeek for Best Luxury Utility vehicle,” said Kim McCullough, Vice President, Marketing, Jaguar Land Rover North America LLC. “As the Jaguar brand’s first-ever SUV, the F-PACE stands out among an impressive field of competition for its sleek design and unparalleled driving dynamics.”
The annual MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards are selected based on criteria that matter most to consumers – driving performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and value. Awards are given in a variety of lifestyle categories including Best Small Car, Best Family Sedan, Best Convertible, Best Luxury Sedan and Best Luxury Utility. This year’s awards are based on 2017 model year vehicles.
“The Jaguar F-PACE simply wowed us,” said MotorWeek host, John Davis. “For their first attempt at a luxury SUV, Jaguar could have played it safe. Clearly, they did not. The F-PACE checks all the typical luxury boxes, and then tops rivals with benchmark performance. So, not only is the F-PACE a great luxury SUV, it’s a great Jaguar!”
