2018 Jaguar F-PACE vs. 2018 Acura RDX




When it comes to performance SUVs, the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Acura RDX are among the most exciting in their class. Both vehicles are right at home tearing up highways in Schaumburg, but they deserve a close look before you make your decision. That's why Jaguar Hoffman Estates has put together this comparison. See how these models stack up in performance, luxury features, and all-wheel drive availability.

Standard All-Wheel Drive

During rough Chicagoland winters, all-wheel drive is essential. It sends power to the wheels with the most traction, providing stability and control in slippery conditions. That's why the designers at Jaguar have equipped each and every F-PACE model with all-wheel drive. While all-wheel drive is an available feature of the RDX, it's not standard at any trim level, and you'll need to pay more to add it.

Engine Options


Some drivers might be satisfied with base trim performance, but others need more raw power and acceleration. Let's check out the upgraded engines on offer in these luxury SUVs:

  • The high-performance F-PACE starts with an efficient four-cylinder gas engine, and only gets more powerful from there. An upgraded version of that engine increases output to 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. If you choose the V6 model, you'll enjoy a face-flattening 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. And for a strong combination of efficiency and acceleration, consider a four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that puts out 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque.

The Acura RDX is only offered with a V6 engine that delivers 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

If you want more performance or diesel capability, you'll need to go with the F-PACE.

Available Features


Both model's base trims feature well designed interiors that will keep you passengers happy on long road trips from Hoffman Estates. However, if you look toward higher trim levels, one model just doesn't make the cut. The 2018 F-PACE can be equipped with the following features:

  • 10-Way Power Adjustable Front Seats

  • Heated and Cooled Front Seats

  • Heated Rear Seats

  • 17-Speaker Meridian Audio System

  • Cooled Storage Compartment

Sadly, none of those can be equipped in the Acura RDX. There's no need to compromise on luxury features-visit Jaguar Hoffman Estates today.

The F-PACE Delivers Unmatched Luxury

As you can see, standard all-wheel drive, more available features, and your choice of engines elevates the F-PACE over the RDX.
