When the 2012 Range Rover Evoque hits American showrooms in the fall, it will come with a $43,995 starting price. That suggested retail price is for the five-door model, and is very similar to British pricing.

The three-door version will cost an additional $1,000. To get a respectable fuel economy rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the automaker tried to keep the weight as low as possible. The result is that the 1,680-kg (3,680-lbs) truck is rated as getting 19 miles per gallon in the city, and 28 on the highway.

As a crossover SUV, the Evoque competes in other markets with the Audi Q3 and the BMW X1. Neither of these competitors are available Stateside.
