Jaguar reportedly working on a larger J-Pace crossover

Jaguar will launch its first crossover dubbed the F-Pace (pictured above is the C-X17 Concept) in early 2016, based on the same platform as the XF saloon.

The F-Pace will be a very important model for Jaguar as they will be entering a new segment to compete with the likes of Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes GLA and Porsche Macan.

According to Car magazine, the F-Pace is just the first step into high-riding crossover segment as the company is already planning to launch a bigger J-Pace crossover as well.

The naming strategy is similar to the one Mercedes is using where the GLE is aligned with the E-Class, upcoming GLS (GL-Class) to the S-Class…

The J-Pace crossover would go against the upcoming Mercedes GLS, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7.

Market launch is reportedly in 2019 and the J-Pace is expected to borrow its aluminium underpinnings from the flagship Range Rover, but in a sportier and more dynamic package and feel.

Engine range will include most likely typical V6 and V8 engines, as well as hybrid options in two wheelbase configurations. The high-performance RS and SVR editions are also expected.
