2020 Jaguar F Pace SVR 550 HP 5.0L V8 Fun to drive In the world of compact-luxury SUVs, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace is one of the most beautifully designed options out there, and the SVR variant adds fire-breathing performance via a V-8 powertrain. Indeed, this is no soft-spoken Brit. Its 550-hp engine means this Jag can really hustle. And unlike so many of its high-performance rivals, the F-Pace SVR retains the smooth and agreeable ride of its luxury-minded siblings rather than ratcheting up the stiffness. All Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUVs come with a muscular supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 under the hood. This engine generates an impressive 550 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque and comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends torque to all four wheels.
