Jaguar crossover to ride on new chassis, get aluminum clothing
According to a report from Top Gear in the UK, wrong.
The blokes from across the pond say that Jaguar is hard at work on a new aluminum-intensive platform for a planned two-seat roadster and coupe, which will be joined shortly thereafter by a small premium hatchback. We concur that all those are likely. But, breaking from previous rumors, TG seems to think that Jaguar will use that same rear-wheel-drive architecture for its crossover.
If true, expect an all-aluminum body (as seen on the current XK and XJ) for light weight and a range of gasoline and, at least in Europe, diesel engines. All-wheel drive would undoubtedly be an option, but don't expect even a modicum of off-road intent. So, will it happen? Our Magic 8 Ball is a bit murky...
