The end of Jaguar F-Pace in Europe marked by 90th Anniversary Edition

Jaguar is gradually streamlining its global lineup as it gears up to reposition itself in the market. Following the discontinuation of the XE and the F-Type, the F-Pace is now being phased out in several countries. Introduced in 2016, the company’s first SUV — and one of its top-selling models — will exit the European market in late 2024 with a special edition model named the 90th Anniversary Edition.

The 90th Anniversary Edition is not a reference to the age of the F-Pace, but rather a nod to nine decades of Jaguar’s internal-combustion engines. This commemorative SUV, based on the R-Dynamic variant, features a unique exterior emblem and retains the blacked-out trim of the R-Dynamic model. Customers have the option to customize their vehicle with features like a panoramic roof and tinted windows.

Inside, the SUV boasts sport seats for the front occupants, contrast stitching, and aluminum trim. The 90th Anniversary package is available for the S, SE, and HSE trim levels, and the model is currently available for purchase in various global markets. However, it will not be offered in the United States.

“We have not confirmed the end of production or the final model year for the F-Pace in the American market. Production will continue at our Solihull plant for the foreseeable future,” a spokesperson for the British automaker informed Autoblog via email.

What’s Next for Jaguar?

Jaguar’s future plans involve elevating its position in the automotive market to compete with brands like Bentley, alongside transitioning to an all-electric lineup. Speculations suggest the introduction of three new models: a sporty sedan to rival the Porsche Taycan, a luxurious sedan comparable in size to the now-discontinued Bentley Mulsanne, and a large SUV targeting the Bentayga.

If all goes as planned, the first of these models is expected to debut in 2025 on a new bespoke platform. With the F-Pace exiting the scene, Jaguar’s global lineup will comprise the electric I-Pace, the E-Pace crossover, and the XF sedan.
