The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace is distinctive for its excellent handling, refined powertrains and spacious cabin and cargo bay. But is it good enough to compete with the 2022 INFINITI QX80, a vehicle which is widely considered the emperor of SUVs due to its massive size, incredible V8 engine, and spacious interior?
Design & Style
The INFINITI QX80 has a commanding presence with a price tag approaching six figures. It offers three row seating with independent suspension and its latest features include twelve inch touch displays with the choice of Apple CarPlay. Its HVAC system has been revised to function with greater efficiency and passengers now have access to a smartphone charger which is wireless and concealed behind the retractable climate control panel.
The Jaguar F-Pace displays marvelous sheet metal with stylish nineteen inch wheels and a turbocharged engine. Passengers will have access to a rear lift gate that is power operated while sitting on stitched leather upholstery with diamond patterns and Pivi Pro infotainment. The secondary controls are readily accessible and the vehicle provides outstanding external vision.
Technology & Safety
The Jaguar F-Pace provides an extensive safety suite, which includes features such as lane management, departure notifications, emergency automatic brakes, cruise control which is adaptive and multiple airbags. Comforts within its cabin include the option of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, eleven inch touch displays, built in navigation and a sound system from Meridian that has fourteen speakers.
The INFINITI QX80’s sheer size is a safety feature in its own right; as most vehicles that collide with it will suffer the brunt of the damage. The good news is that it is equipped with lots of features to ensure such a collision never happens. These include emergency automated brakes, pedestrian detection, lane assistance with departure notifications and cruise control which is adaptive. Comforts within its cabin include twelve inch touch displays, a Bose sound system with thirteen speakers, 4 USB ports, the choice of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and climate control.
The INFINITI QX80 is one of the world’s most powerful SUVs. It comes with a V8, 5.6 liter engine that can generate 400 horsepower which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in 5.9 seconds, and it is the perfect vehicle for hauling boats, camping equipment or recreational vehicles since it can tow up to 8,500 pounds. Those that purchase the Jaguar F-Pace with an inline 6 supercharged engine can generate 395 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in 5.5 seconds.
The Bottom Line
Both SUVs are evenly matched when it comes to horsepower, zero to sixty acceleration times, luxury and safety features. But the INFINITI QX80 has an ace up its sleeve, which is its ability to carry 7 passengers while the Jaguar F-Pace is limited to just five, and this combined with the Jaguar’s clunky infotainment and stiff ride makes the QX80 the winner.
