Jaguar F-Type prototype 29.6.2012

Aluminum will play a key role moving forward

New details are starting to emerge about Jaguar's future product lineup.

Things will kick off later this year when the company introduces the highly-anticipated F-Type. It was previewed by the C-X16 concept and will be a two-seat roadster with sporty styling. Power will be provided by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine with 380 PS (279 kW / 375 hp) and a 5.0-liter V8 that develops up to 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp).

The F-Type will be followed by the production version of the C-X75 concept. Set to be launched in 2013, the model could have a supercharged and turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is backed up by two electric motors. This would reportedly give the car a combined output of 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) which may enable it to run from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds and hit a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). Production will be limited to 250 units and pricing is expected to start at £700,000 ($1,096,130 / €882,200).

In 2014, we can expect a redesigned XK. It could be larger and more luxurious than the current model, which would help set it apart from the F-Type.

2014 could also usher in a new XF. It will reportedly have an aluminum body and could be available as a coupe in 2015 or 2016.

Bigger changes occur in 2015 when Jaguar will reportedly introduce a crossover and an X-Type successor. The crossover will battle the Audi Q5 and could ride on a new aluminum architecture. The entry-level sedan, on the other hand, will compete with the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class. It could have an aluminum body and might spawn coupe and wagon variants.

Last but not least, a redesigned XJ is expected in 2017. Little is known about the model, but a coupe variant is reportedly under consideration.

It is about time. Although I think a crossover is a waste of time and money (at the moment) as the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander can take that spot at the moment. I think Jaguar should instead focus on that C-Class/3-Series/A4 rival, as they're hugely missing out in this sector, as well as a smaller vehicle to rival the 1-series/A-Class/A3. Those two vehicles are key to Jaguar growth, rather than a crossover which will just clash with the popular Evoque.
