Is not the first time you hear about a future SUV coming from Jaguar, we know that. And now that Tata is the new owner of Jaguar, they have confirmed that a crossover-SUV is under consideration. Having this statement, we took the liberty to get wild, and here’s how we think the future SUV will look like.
Long time ago, about two years ago, Jaguar boss Joe Greenwell said: "Are we looking at it? Yes. But we’re not about to launch it." So this means the car will not be launched before 2010. We also have to consider that the priorities are: a facelift XJ sedan, F-Type and XF Coupe. And only after this three we will see a SUV coming from Jaguar.
The future SUV will come as a direct competition for the newly launched BMW X6.
Even if there are no informations about the SUV’s specifications, we presume the output will be somewhere between 300 hp for a base version, and will go up to 400 hp for the top of the line. It will make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in about 5.5 seconds, while the top speed will be around 155 mph.
People said Jaguar will not build a SUV because it will interfere with Land Rover’s customers. But the two companies have two different targets: the Jaguar is more for the one looking for the luxury, while Land Rover is for the sporty ones. And now, with Jaguar getting a new owner we have more reasons to really believe there will be a SUV in the future. So, stay tuned!
