The first crossover/SUV from Jaguar will bow in 2014 as a 2015 model year vehicle according to a new report.
The unnamed machine is likely to be a large one and take on the likes of the Audi Q7 and BMW X5. To help keep weight down Jag will use an aluminum body, as with the current XJ and XK.
Engines could range from a turbocharged 2.2-liter 4-cylinder from the Evoque, or a 3.0-liter V6, to the automakers new 5.0-liter V8. In addition to a high-performance R version, a hybrid is being considered.
The vehicle will be targeted towards customers in the U.S. as well as to in emerging markets like China and Russia, with Jag’s goal to quadruple sales from 50,000 units to 200,000 over the next decade.
