Jaguar have revealed further details about the upcoming F-PACE.

The car will be made with a lightweight aluminium chassis  that is said to be used to help with handling and maintain ride quality.

Jaguar has also given details about the Double Wishbone and Integral Link suspension systems that are also designed to help with handling and ride comfort.

“We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-PACE must be a true Jaguar and deliver the Jaguar dynamics DNA”, commented Mike Cross, chief engineer at Jaguar Land Rover.

“We’ve tested ride and handling to extremities in all environments and in all conditions, and the result is that the new F-PACE is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is going to be enjoyable to own. As soon as you get into the vehicle you know immediately that it’s a great place to be.”

The new car will also feature the same steering systems as seen in the current model F-TYPE, XE and XF models. The testing for the new car has taken place in all sorts of conditions and locations to make sure that no stone is unturned before the release of the vehicle in 2016.

One of the tools that Jaguar has used in the testing of the F-PACE is the computer aided engineering tool to help with feedback and to testing process of the prototypes vehicles.

The F-PACE will be premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and will be manufactured in Solihull when it goes on sale in 2016.
