In these photos, the chassis and components are being tested underneath a chopped up Jaguar XF body, so don’t expect any of the looks of this test mule to carry over to the production car.
Under the hood of this tester is a diesel powerplant, though in the States, a turbocharged four cylinder is expected to be offered at the low end, while a supercharged six cylinder should do duty as the top of the line option.
The new Jag, internally known as X760, is expected to start as a sedan but will eventually offer a shooting brake variant, and will serve as the basis for a small crossover. Eventually, a sports performance R version is also likely, to take on the M3 and C63 AMG.
The Jaguar XS is expected to hit the market sometime in 2015.
