Last year the Jaguar style employer even went as verifying to the British publication that his group was working on 2 +2 cars, that would change the ceased flagship XK.
Jaguar has started work on an all-new replacement for its flagship XK coupe that was terminated back in 2014. A new report recommends the new coupe– and the roadster that will follow– will join the British car-maker’s range in 2021 when it is positioned above the F-TYPE.
The F-TYPE, which is due for replacement in 2019, currently represents a two-fifths of all Jaguar sales. Last year Jaguar acquired record sales of 178,601 systems– up more than 20 per cent on 2016.
2021 Jaguar XK News
It’s a recognized fact that Jaguar wants to broaden its sports car portfolio beyond the F-Type lineup. How are they planning to do so? There have been recent talks of a restarted XK to sign up with the F-Type as mentioned above as a more useful option with the area in the back for two rear passengers. That situation seems to be increasingly most likely if we were to count on a new report coming from Autocar.
Sources close to Jaguar have told the British publication an XK follower is certainly in the pipeline, but it will not be released faster than 2021. Interestingly, a design principle for a potential third-generation XK was ready before the nameplate’s demise back in 2014, but ultimately Jag chose to end and cease the model altogether to focus on other models.
Ought to a new XK see the light of day, it will presumably be based upon the next-gen F-Type due to come out as early as next year. The current F-Type utilizes updated foundations of the old XK and will benefit from modified hardware for its next model. The setup Jaguar’s engineers have been dealing with can be changed to support the development of a new and roomier 2 +2 model in the same vein as the grand tourer canned after the XKR Final Fifty Edition.
2021 Jaguar XK Engine
Both the F-Type and XK followers will use JRL’s crop of Ingenium four- and six-cylinder engines and are expected to generate SVR versions sharing the supercharged 5.0-liter V8. It’s unclear at this point whether the remodeled hardware will open up the possibility of a plug-in hybrid powertrain, but that day will most likely come eventually.
One thing is for sure– Jaguar sees a bright future up ahead for cars and will put money where its mouth is by purchasing performance models.
