Mini Cooper Paceman 2014 Wallpapers – When the Mini Paceman makes its public debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, it will be the newest installment in what has been an aggressive lineup expansion from the diminutive British marquee. Essentially a coupe version of the larger Countryman, the Paceman will be available in the United Kingdom beginning on March 16, 2013, for a shade over $30,000. There is no formal arrival date set for the US market as of yet.
When the Paceman arrives, it will come to the party with two gasoline and two diesel engine options. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline-powered unit in the base Cooper makes 122 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. The hotter Cooper S Paceman adds a turbocharger to the mix, which is good for 184 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.
The two available diesel mills are l.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinders. In the Cooper D Paceman, the smaller 1.6-liter engine makes 112 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The Cooper SD Paceman receives the larger engine and puts down an impressive 143 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. Both the diesel and gasoline powered Pacemans come standard with a six-speed manual transmission and can be mated to Mini’s ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. There is also a John Cooper Works Paceman on the horizon, but we will have to wait for the details on that car (our guess is the standard JCW formula of an uprated 1.6-liter turbo, along with the standard list of aesthetic, suspension, and brake tweaks).
Pitched as a sporty urban commuter with the Mini’s signature “go-kart” feeling, the Paceman should be an entertaining car to drive, we just hope it actually makes it to our shores.
