Jaguar SUV gets green light for production, will arrive in 2016

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 14, 2013

At last, the Jaguar SUV received the green light for production, at least according to British magazine, Autocar. The Jaguar SUV has been in development for over two years already and will change perception of the brand. Jaguar is believed to unveil a concept that previews the new SUV at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

People who already seen the new crossover described it as stunning and unlike anything that Jaguar had done before. Set to take on cars such as the upcoming Porsche Macan, the new Jaguar SUV aims to attract younger, more affluent families. Dubbed XQ, the crossover will be a sister car to Jaguar’s Bmw 3-Series competitor and will use the same new aluminum platform.

Still, sources say that the production version will be more of a sporting crossover than a full-on SUV. As expected, the crossover will be offered as standard with rear-wheel drive but as an option Jaguar will offer the all-wheel drive.

What is more interesting is that it will use the smaller version of the Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) that underpins the 2013 Range Rover and the 2014 Range Rover Sport. Under the hood, Jaguar will offer a wide range of petrol and diesel four-cylinder engine. Still, more powerful V6 petrol and diesel versions will be offered.
