Jaguar Plans Six New Vehicles by 2017
Jaguar will be pretty busy in the upcoming four years, as it plans to unveil six new models by 2017. The first to arrive will, of course, be the F-Type Coupe. We expect Jaguar to unveiled it sometime next year and rumors suggest that it will be significantly cheaper than the F-Type Roadster version. Additionally, the F-Type Coupe will be stiffer and lighter than the roadster version, and it may get significant hardware changes.
In 2015 Jaguar launch the new Q-Type, which will take aim at the BMW 3 Series. The new Q-Type will be built on the compact PLA platform and will be made entirely from aluminum. The Q-Type will come in around about £28,000 (about $43k at the current exchange rates).
2016 will be the busiest year with no less than three models set to be unveiled. The first will be the XQ crossover that will target models like the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. The XQ, like the Q-Type, will sit atop the PLA aluminum platform and will feature an all-aluminum construction. The new crossover will carry a base price around £31,000 (about $48k).
The last model that Jag has scheduled is the new-generation XF sedan. The XF will also sit on the PLA platform and Jaguar will offer it with its new line of four-cylinder engines.

The coupe version of the new F-Type Roadster has been caught testing several times and we expect to see Jag unveil it in early in 2014. The model will likely retain the same design language as the roadster version, but rumors suggest it will be stiffer and lighter.
Jaguar will offer the F-Type Coupe with the same trim levels as the roadster: F-Type, F-Type S, and F-Type V8 S. The base F-Type will carry a supercharged V-6 engine that delivers a total of 340 horsepower, while the S version will feature 380 horsepower from the same V-6 engine. The V8 S version will feature a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 495 horsepower.
