Since their inception, crossovers have mostly consisted of front wheel drive family transporters with power coming from an unassuming V6 or I4. To break this mold, Jaguar will be pulling the wraps off of their latest creation, the F-PACE Performance Crossover, at the Frankfurt International Auto Show (IAA).
In a press release earlier today, they saw fit to tease us with a side shot and video of the upcoming model. Perhaps there will be enough room under the bonnet for the 550 hp fusion reactor found in the F-Type R and the Range Rover SVR. If not, the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 shared between Jaguar and Land Rover makes more than enough power for a fun family runabout.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of Jaguar, and it will be a banner year for their lineup. The new XE sedan will be a stylish and practical alternative to full size cars, and the entire F-TYPE range is available with all-wheel drive and manual transmission options. The F-TYPE range, XE, XJ and XF will all be joining the F-PACE at Jaguar’s IAA stand, and can be seen by the public from the event’s first day, Sept. 17, to the end of the show on Sept. 27.
