The new Jaguar SUV Concept could be unveiled in September, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). At least this is what AutoWeek is telling us! Set to hit the market in 2016, the new Jaguar SUV dubbed XQ or Q-Type, the new vehicle from the British manufacturer, now owned by Tata Motors, will also highlight the technical capabilities of the latest PLA aluminum platform that will be used by a new family of Jaguar cars.
Still, a Jaguar spokesman declined to make any comments saying that the company doesn’t talk about what it is doing down the line. Autocar says that the SUV project is quite controversial within Jaguar’s traditional markets and due to this, the company needs to introduce a concept version of the upcoming SUV to see the public’s reaction and receive some feedback.
Jaguar is expected to install the Ford I-4 engines found on the Evoque on the new SUV as well as the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 found throughout its lineup.
