I've been meaning to post this much earlier. Many more to come. Also videos of the F Pace D, and what it sounds like inside and outside while driving.

The reaction from our customers at the preview party was just incredible. Both the XE, XF and F Pace are just amazing vehicles. I can't wait to hear customer feedback after their pre orders arrive and they are sitting behind the wheel. Sport Mode set, Dynamic Mode engaged and foot to the floor....

I cant remember if this is the F Pace or XE, as they both look so similar underneath. Same with the new XF. Terrific attention to aerodynamic detailing.

At 5'10" in socks or about 6' in shoes, i had plenty of head and leg room. Taken after adjusting drivers seat to a comfortable position. The F Pace is shorter than its sibling, the new XF but wider than the big Merc GL550.

To fully understand and appreciate the new triplets Jaguar has released, you have to look at why the F Type is such an outstanding car. The triplets take all the hardware from their more intense older brother and move it over into the new modular platform. The F Type was the first Jag to use the wode body design, which its younger family members also use. <br/><br/> Look at that suspension on the F Type. What you want to see on a wild cat like the F Type. Just amazing to see on a companies entry cars

Taken last year during training in New Orleans. Ive never imagined a large SUV could be so good looking. I stood across the street watch peoples reaction to the F Pace for about 45 mins. Overwelming positive!

Out of the 17 pre orders I've taken so far the F Pace has an edge to the XE. Few are lower priced. Most are high optioned R-Sport or S models, Most first time Jaguar owners. The Cat is back!

Great pics!! I was originally going to go with the F-Pace but did a 180 for my next car. Maybe by the time I'm in the market again the F-Pace will have the new I-6 engine.

Love it!
I only hope my German Shepherd can fit "comfortably." If so, it's bye-bye X5

It's going to be interesting to see how they package a I-6. I thought crash testing, (pedestrian standards) are part of what killed off the old engines.

They have to have so much empty space in front of the engine to meet the ever increasing safety regulations. Has modern engine design effected the overall length that much?

I love the idea of an I-6 and double 6, but hope Jag never gets rid of their 5.0 supercharged engine or the TVS superchargers in general.

Maybe that's what initially killed it off, but BMW has been using them for years. Anyway, I'm glad to see them making a comeback. I would love to see the F-Type with the stick and an I-6. From what I've read the 5.0 may be the last Jaguar V8--at least for a while. I guess it would make more sense to source a V8 from another automaker to reduce on all of the R&D costs.

But back to the F-Pace, I think it'll be a hit; I have no doubt it will be their best seller.
