Jaguar's long-awaited F-Pace SUV is almost here, and it looks exactly like you'd expect, with a familial nose and a two-box shape that's more of a sleek crossover than it is a rough-and-tumble off-roader.

The British automaker has plenty of expertise in aluminum, so it's no surprise that the F-Pace rides atop an aluminum chassis, with body panels expected to be formed from the same lightweight element.

Jaguar is promising a new electric power-steering setup, along with a front double-wishbone and rear integral-link suspension for balanced, sporty handling.

Jaguar has not said if the F-Pace will come with anything other than all-wheel drive, but it has revealed that the SUV will borrow the torque-vectoring technology from its F-Type sports coupe for maximum cornering performance.

The Solihull, UK-built F-Pace will face a murderer's row of talent in the premium SUV segment, and it will have to be careful not to steal sales away from its Land Rover brethren.
