2017 Jaguar F-PACE vs. 2017 BMW X5
2017 Jaguar F-PACE
2017 BMW X5
The luxury SUV segment leaves plenty of room for personalization. However, certain qualities remain non-negotiable to car shoppers, such as reasonable price points, fuel efficiency, and upscale features. The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE and 2017 BMW X5 are two premium sports utility vehicles that live up to the reputations of their manufacturers, but which one makes the best case for itself? Jaguar Great Neck has compared these two SUVs to help New York City and Huntington drivers choose the model that’s truly right for them!
Engine Specs and Fuel Economy
Powered by a 3.0L turbo 6-cylinder engine, the base X5 sDrive35i cranks out 300 hp and torque to match. Meanwhile, the F-PACE 20d models utilize a 2.0L turbo-diesel 4-cylinder engine rated at 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. While the BMW X5 produces greater horsepower, the Jaguar F-PACE throws it for a loop in the torque and fuel economy departments.
With its 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission, the X5 earns an 18 mpg city/ 25 mpg highway rating. Equipped with an 8-Speed-ZF automatic, the F-PACE earns an astounding 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway rating. What’s even more impressive is the Jaguar F-PACE is powered solely by all-wheel drive, which is optional for the BMW X5 SUV.
The Jaguar F-PACE also gives you a choice of two engines at most trim levels, while the BMW X5 requires that you upgrade to a pricier model. For example, rather than shelling out $62,100 for the xDrive40e iPerformance, which houses a 308-hp 3.0L turbo 6-cylinder, you can save thousands by outfitting the F-PACE with a 340-hp 3.0L supercharged V6.
Features and Price Ranges
If you’re considering a BMW or Jaguar, chances are you’ve got your sights set on luxury and refinement. Inside the cabins of these compact SUVs, you’ll find similar levels of cargo space, as well as the following comforts:

Stacked up side-by-side, these two models appear evenly equipped—until you look closer. The major difference between the Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X5 boils down to price. The BMW X5 lineup’s entry-level model, the sDrive35i, starts at $55,500 MSRP. However, New York City’s luxury car shoppers will likely find the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE SUV’s starting MSRP of $41,900 more reasonable. In fact, you could bypass the X5 altogether, and simply upgrade to the top-tier F-PACE S for a starting MSRP of $57,700.
