Following the F-PACE's world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week, the US prices for the first ever SUV from Jaguar have been revealed.
The least money you can pay for a Jaguar F-PACE in the US is $40,990, which is more than the entry level models from Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. On the other hand, the F-Pace does not offer a four-cylinder petrol engine version, so if you start to compare it against similarly powered Q5s, X3s and GLKs (we're still waiting for the GLC here), the Jaguar F-Pace actually comes out better.

So, what do you get for those $40,990? The base model F-PACE is a diesel-powered medium-sized SUV with a 2.0-liter engine good for 180 hp. This allows the Jaguar to sprint from zero to sixty miles per hour in 8.2 seconds and go all the way to a maximum speed of 129 mph. However, with the way things are going lately, we think people will be a little more reluctant to spend their cash on diesels, at least for a while.

Especially when for just $1,400 more ($42,390), they can get the next model in the range, the F-PACE 35t. This is the most accessible model with a petrol engine, and it's a classic 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 340 hp and already impressive performances: 0-60 mph takes 5.4 seconds while the top speed is limited at 155 mph. We'd expect this version to become the best-selling F-PACE as it offers the perfect cost/performance balance.

And then there's the Jaguar F-PACE S, a model that costs significantly more at $56,700, but only offers 40 extra hp and a 0.3 seconds reduction for the 0-60 mph sprint time, with the same 155 mph limited top speed. Granted, you do get a lot of the options found on the F-PACE R-SPORT trim level that costs $55,700 with the 35t engine, so it might not be such a bad deal after all.

In case you were wondering how it compares with the Porsche Macan, at $52,600 the base version of the German sporty SUV is cheaper than the F-PACE S, but only comes with the same power as a 35t Jaguar (340 hp).

We'd say this is rather conventional pricing on Jaguar's part who didn't want to rock the boat in any way in this very disputed premium segment.
