AutoCarUk recently received the scoop on Jaguar’s plans for the next few years, all of which apparently include the launch of seven new models.
The first in 2014, is the coupe version of the much-anticpated Jaguar F-Type, which is described to be the buy word for the F-Type model, more so than the convertible. It will also cost less while weighing less to improve performance and chassis rigidity, thanks to its fixed roof.
The next model in 2015 is the Q-Type sedan, Jaguar’s rumored BMW 3-Series competitor, which will be based off of Jaguar-Land Rover’s all-new compact PLA all-aluminum modular platform. Pricing is set to hover around £28,000 for the domestic version, or around $43,224 at current exchange rates.
On the roster for 2016 is Jaguar’s intended XQ crossover, which too will be based off of the same aforementioned PLA platform. The name is tentative, but it will be built to compete against the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. In the same year, the XJ and the XK are due for a major update. Both were built off of Jaguar’s aging aluminum platform from 2003 and will be built on the new large PLA platform currently underpinning the Range Rover.
And in 2017, the XF will be completely replaced with a new model, also based on the same PLA platform.
