2020 Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X5

Luxury SUV shoppers around Baton Rouge and Monticello often find themselves debating between two standout models: the 2020 Jaguar F-PACE vs. BMW X5. Each option displays an uncanny ability to accelerate with zest and handle tight-cornered turns with reassuring grip. So, which one better fits the needs of your daily life?

To answer this question, Jaguar Baton Rouge put together the following review that will take a deep dive into the performance, exterior styling, and in-cabin technology of the 2020 Jaguar F-PACE and the BMW X5!

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X5: Performance Specifications

Delightful performance is a given when looking at the Jaguar F-PACE and the BMW X5, but which SUV gives you the most engaging experience behind the wheel?

Well, that distinction belongs to the 2020 Jaguar F-PACE, and one look at the engine line-up tells you why this is the case. There are a host of playful powerplants to choose from, like the 3.0L V6 engine that churns out 380 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque, and can deftly accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.1 seconds.

If this engine option catches your attention, then you’ll be elated to find the even-more-stunning 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine that boasts a hearty 550 horsepower, 502 lb-ft of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.1 seconds.

The BMW X5, on the other hand, limits drivers to just two engine options underneath the hood, with the most notable being a 4.4L V8 engine that produces 456 horsepower, 479 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to travel from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.6 seconds.

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X5: Exterior Styling & Functionality

Luxury models, like the Jaguar F-PACE and the BMW X5, epitomize style and sophistication, yet the F-PACE again gets the nod in this area because it piles performance-boosting features onto its suave design.

To start, the frame of the 2020 Jaguar F-PACE is stiff and sturdy, composed of lightweight aluminum, and offers a near-perfect weight distribution that provides you with deft, responsive handling behind the wheel.

Additionally, this model sports enhanced aerodynamics that direct air flow around, over, and under the vehicle to reduce lift, increase tire traction, and ultimately keep the engine and the brakes cool and collected.

The BMW X5, by comparison, looks sleek and well-polished, sporting a classic if slightly mundane design, yet it doesn’t feature the same number of performance-boosting exterior features found in the F-PACE.

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X5: Infotainment Technology

As drivers continue to crave adaptive in-cabin technology to help stay entertained during traffic, the Jaguar F-PACE and the BMW X5 have both developed well-rounded infotainment setups.

The 2020 Jaguar F-PACE touts an impressive 10-inch Touch Pro™ that offers tap, swipe, and pinch-to-zoom gestures on the customizable home screen. There’s also the Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter combination that makes driving safer.

The BMW X5 is no slouch when it comes to in-cabin technology, yet the interface on this SUV’s touchscreen display is often cited by reviewers and other drivers as being less than user-friendly.
