Jaguar's brand director Steven de Ploey has confirmed that the F-Pace luxury SUV will make its first public appearance at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show in September, before going on sale later in the 2015 or at the start of 2016.
Powertrain variants have yet to be confirmed, but a performance variant powered by the F-Type's 280kW/460Nm supercharged V6 is rumoured.
The F-Type's 5.0 litre 364kW/625Nm supercharged V8 could also feature, if Jaguar can figure out how to squeeze one in.
A more sedate range of diesel and petrol fours and sixes borrowed from the XE are also likely, with power outputs ranging from 147kW to 250kW. All models are expected to make use of Jaguar's familiar ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic.
Expect to hear more about Jaguar's first-ever SUV as we draw closer to the Frankfurt Motor Show.
