Want the Jaguar of sport-utes? That'd be a Range Rover then. And it will be for another four years until Jag develops its own SUV.

The reports of a Jaguar ute come as the latest stage in a veritable onslaught of new products planned for the Coventry marque, which have included a new diesel four, all-wheel drive for the XJ sedan, a 3 Series rival and an XFR-S super sedan.

The SUV would naturally borrow heavily from its sister brand Land Rover, but in order to differentiate itself, would come in a more road-focused package to take on the likes of the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne at the upper end of the luxury crossover market.

      An SUV is going to be a lot harder to push to the side of the road ;)

      NO NO NO NO NO. THIS ISN'T 2002 ANYMORE. YOU GUYS KNOCK THAT CRAP OFF.

        And this is where Tata will show its eagerness to grow where it starts to compete with itself.

        I've said it before and say it again, Jaguar = Cars/Wagons. Land Rover = CUV. Range Rover = SUV.

        And the reason they are considering this move is so Jaguar Dealers stop complaining about not having an SUV instead of trying to get more dual Dealers or tri Dealers that sell all 2/3 brands.

        Exactly what I came in here to say.

      Just what the world needs, another boring SUV...

      Every time I read an automotive press release on here and it makes me say "why would they do that?" to myself, I think the answer I eventually come to is "that must be what they think China wants".
      So, I guess they must think China wants a Jaguar SUV.

        So the Chinese can strap it to several donkeys and haul it back to the dealership?

        They did it with landrover. Hell, don't they own landrover?!

      They're only about 10 years late to that party.

      Good-bye Jaguar, once you made the mighty XJ220, look how low you have fallen. SHAME ON YOU.

      Terrific. What's next? A breadvan?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Just slap a Jahuar badge on a Tata Nano and it'll be all good.

      @ MajorGeek
      Times are chaging and this isn't 1970 :=)
        • 3 Years Ago
        So, your point is that gas has gone up since 1970? Gas was 57 cents a gallon in 1975. Average income was also 11k whereas it is now 49k.

      Another symptom of "everything to everyone" disease, an anti-specificity disorder.

      Should be an interesting sight to behold.

      I don't see the point of a Jaguar SUV with Range Rover in the fold. Wouldn't a Shooting Brake or wagon make more sense?
      • 3 Years Ago
      I don't know what to say. Do we really need a Jag SUV? I think they should keep themselves to sedans and sports car. Let Land Rover take care of the utility vehicles segment.
