Springtime in Southern Nevada is just beautiful and perfect for a drive in a Jaguar whether in the desert, the glittering lights of the Las Vegas Strip or around the neighborhood. The all-new Jaguar F-Pace is a vehicle for all seasons including spring showers, sunny days and balmy nights. With is racing-inspired driveline and suspension to its roomy interior, it does it all. From tight handling on the turns (after all, it is a Jaguar) to incredible slippery surface grip, it is truly dynamic.

There are many power options available to the driver. The engines range from a two-liter 4-cylinder diesel boasting 318 pound-feet of torque, to a 380-horsepower gasoline engine, all paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, with all-wheel drive being standard.

Although is appears to be a mid-size SUV, the ride feels light yet substantial, spirited but controlled, like driving a mid-sized sedan. In this true 5-seater, luxury abounds with its standard leather seats and a Meridian sound system.

The Jaguar F-Pace is perfect for the women (and men) of Las Vegas to enjoy the ride. Think of driving to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam in total comfort backed by power. Red Rock Canyon National Park, Mt. Charleston and Lee Canyon are ready to be enjoyed while driving in this crossover. The neon lights of the Strip and downtown Las Vegas can’t match the shine of a Jaguar. It is the ultimate in a luxury ride that is perfect for Southern Nevada.

Jaguar features comfort, confidence and safety. Come test drive one at Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas located at 5255 W. Sahara Ave. For more information, visit
