Jaguar F-PACE vs 2019 Audi Q5: Engine Options and Power
Whether you’re interested in an efficient and agile 4-cylinder for your daily commute or a highway-conquering V8 for weekend adventures out in the country, the F-PACE and Audi Q5 both supply stellar options to match your lifestyle.
The base F-PACE trim comes equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder capable of delivering 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for an SUV that can confidently haul a trailer or small boat, then the 2.0L turbocharged diesel engine with 180 horsepower with 317 lb-ft of ground-clenching torque is worth close consideration.
Those on the hunt for a luxury SUV with an insane level of output will be impressed with the SVR trim, which provides a 5.0L supercharged V8 producing an incredible 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. All engine options are paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission and Adaptive Dynamics to match engine output with your personal driving habits.
By comparison, the Audi Q5 relies on just one 2.0L TFSI® 4-cylinder engine which can easily reach the 240-horsepower range and is mated to a 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission. Like the F-PACE, the Audi Q5 features an advanced all-wheel drive system.
