So anyway, that new 2009 Jaguar X-Type we showed you this morning -- the one currently being crucified in the comments? No need to worry: it's not coming here. On the same day it announced the updated version for the rest of the world, Jaguar has officially pulled the plug on the X-Type in the US. The car's biggest sales year was 2003 when it was first introduced, and it has not met expectations since. Not even the introduction of the wagon for MY 2005 helped. Of course, perhaps if more people knew the wagon existed in the first place, it might have made somewhat of a difference. I say this as I carry on a parallel IM chat with Neff, who had no idea the wagon was available in the US until about 5 minutes ago. Suffice to say that the estate could have been marketed more effectively. The 2008 model (above) will continue to arrive until March, and after that, the X-Type turns into a pumpkin. You'll probably be able to snag a nice deal on one at the local Jaguar store, and there's no shortage of value-priced examples on the used market, either. Jaguar expects the XF to make up for lost sales of both the S- and X-Types when it arrives.
