Report: 2015 Jaguar SUV is in advanced design stages

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 11, 2013

If you believed that Jaguar dropped its plans to build an SUV you’d better think again as the British manufacturer is working hard on its new Sport Utility Vehicle. According to AutoExpress, the Jaguar SUV is in advanced design stages and it will go on sales in 2015. Expected to be called Q-Type or XQ, the new Jaguar SUV will take on the Bmw X3 and the Audi Q5.

Although it was easier to borrow the underpinnings from the Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar will use the new chassis with company’s upcoming 3-Series rival. Due to its size, Jaguar will use four-cylinder engines on its upcoming SUV, which means that it could go for the 2.0-liter SI4 turbo and the 2.20-liter SD4 diesel engines found on the Range Rover Evoque.

The latest eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox will be offered as standard. A 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine could also be offered with a maximum output of 340 hp. A hybrid version is also planned and Jaguar is expected to use tech derived from the C-X75 Concept.
