Rumored to make the debut of 3 Series rival at Frankfurt Motor Show Jaguar seems to have changed his mind now, as a report of the industry says Jag SUV will be unveiled at the said event this year.
It is the AutoWeek who had said such notation on its website, and hadn’t provided us the info that upcoming Jaguar may be displayed in the production specific avatar, or would remain as a conceptual context.
However, there are expectation that SUV can get the terminology like Q-Type or XQ for its model plate and would underpin the company’s entry level XS’s platform, but engine specification remains unconfirmed. The boffins at WorldCarFans however had lent us the following suggestions that they expect the British carmaker to deliver us in the production specific soon:
- A 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel with outputs of 163 HP (120 kW) and 200 HP (147 kW)
- A 3.0-liter V6 diesel with 240 HP (177 kW)
- A turbocharged 2.-0-liter petrol with 240 HP (176 kW)
- A supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 340 HP (250 kW)
Meanwhile, the Q-Type and XS may face the launch by 2015, and would be initially built at the Land Rover plant in Solihull, England.
