Jaguar X-Type successor coming in 2015

Article by Christian A., on November 26, 2012

Jaguar has offered even more details about its products for the future. Jaguar revealed that it is developing an X-Type successor for 2015. This was codenamed X760. It is expected to be built on the premium lightweight architecture (PLA) and it will be offered with rear and all-wheel drive. The model may also lead to a crossover version in 2016.

However, it should be clarified that nothing has been made official yet. It is believed that there will be a redesigned XF that is internally known as the X260. The model will be available as a sedan and wagon but there's also a rumor that a crossover will be the third body style. The next-generation XJ (X360) sedan is scheduled to be released for 2017.

As many as three separate versions are included in Jaguar’s plans. These are a sedan (which may possibly be even more conservative than the existing model), a Mercedes CLS-like four-door coupe, and a high-end variant that is reported to be more appealing than a Bentley Continental Flying Spur but for just half the price.

In the short term, the F-Type lineup may include a coupe, an all-wheel drive variant and a high-performance RS. It’s also expected that the next-generation XK will move up market and come with more powerful engines. Not much has been divulged about the model but it will probably be bigger than the current model and it will likely be built on an updated version of the present platform.
