The British car maker Jaguar is preparing a big surprise for its fans. According to a recent report published by our colleagues from Autoweek, Jaguar will unveil at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show their first crossover.
In this moment, we can’t tell you for sure if it will be a concept or a production model. The Jaguar crossover will probably be called the XQ or the Q-Type and it will be based on the same platform as the upcoming XS model.
The engine lineup is still unconfirmed but the same report is suggesting that the first Jaguar crossover will have two petrol engines and two diesel ones.
We are talking about the 2.2 liter diesel unit with 163 or 200 horsepower, the 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine with 240 HP and about the turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder petrol engine with 240 horsepower. The last, but not the least will be a supercharged 3.0 liter V6 unit that can output 340 horsepower.
The first Jaguar crossover is expected to be launched in the second half of the 2015 and will be made in Solihull, England, at the Land Rover plant.Source: WCF
