Finally Jaguar is in development of something really unexpected. The Jaguar Crossover is a car that is challenging to imagine and yet it is a reality. The company's official sources provided some more specific information on that. In particular this new SUV is going to see the world in 2014 and will be equipped with 2.2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine like the Evoque, another option would be 3.0-liter V6 diesel and a newer and much more powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine. It was also mentioned that the development of hybrid engine is under consideration.
So far no information is unveiled as for the new Jaguar model name. The sizing is expected to be around the same as Audi Q7 and BMW X5. Jaguar plans to make aluminum body for its new vehicle so it could be light enough to be fuel efficient, as already done for XJ and XK models.
Such moves of a world's famous and prestigious car maker are indeed attempts to increase sales from 50,000 to 200,000 vehicles over the next ten years. The primary targets of Jaguar SUV/crossover would be North America, Russian and Chinese markets.
