33Entry-level Jaguar X-Type successor due in 2015, crossover a year later

Jaguar's future product plans keep on slipping, slipping, slipping onto the internet, and the latest on it's entry-level luxury challenger is a 2015 due date. According to Automobile magazine, "most significant game-changer from Coventry" will be arriving on the same PLA platform that supports the Jaguar XJ and 2013 Range Rover. Kacher says the small sedan has already got the green light as codename X760, and will bow first as a four-door sedan, then as a crossover a year later.

14Jaguar X-Type successor speculated anew

We expect the Jaguar X-Type to be making an appearance in an episode of AMC's Walking Dead, since the sedan that died two years ago simply will not, well, die. Or rather, its successor won't die. Autocar has a detailed report on the work being done to engineer a new entry-level Jaguar, and it is hypothesized that we'll see it in 2015.

24More details on Jaguar's 3 Series fighter

Word is bumping around the internets that Jaguar may be interested in dusting off a sub-XF model. Doing so would put the big cat into direct competition with the mighty BMW 3 Series – a feat Jaguar attempted once before with the ill-fated X-Type. But according to Adrian Hallmark, the automaker's new global brand director, the company won't be repeating past mistakes.

18Rumormill: Jaguar working on aluminum X-Type successor

Tata Motors chief executive Carl-Peter Forster has acknowledged that Jaguar needs a smaller, higher-volume vehicle and it appears that just such a car is already under development. Unlike the less-than-stellar X-Type which was based on the second-generation Ford Mondeo, the new car should actually be a real Jaguar.

18Jaguar drops X-Type from US lineup

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 k

11Spy Shots: Jaguar X-Type

The Jaguar X-Type looked dated before the first sedan came off the line back in 2001, and the last generation Mondeo-based model hasn't aged gracefully from there. Sales bottomed out at 32,500 units worldwide last year, and rumors persist that the X-Type will soon be discontinued in the US – but the X-Type's demise may be exaggerated.

16Jaguar releases warmed over X-type and XK range

Jaguar scraped together a few bucks to make several less-than-noteworthy changes to the XK, XKR and the X-type, and since they took the trouble of putting together press releases, we felt obligated to pass along the information to you.

12Whiplash a serious problem with many vehicles, says IIHS

6Shaguar! Er... Jaguar designer honored

Say what you will about the Jaguar X-Type wagon, shooting brake, you know it's a Jag when you see it. The same goes for the XJ, which was totally redesigned yet still retains its identity as an XJ and nothing else. In fact, the entire Jaguar line has a nice family look about it. The man responsible for the Jaguar design language, Ian Callum, has been awarded the highest honor the UK can muster for designers, the Royal Designers for Industry award. The honor is given to recognize designers who ha

15Jaguar's next X-Type a "shooting brake"?

Jaguar badly needs a successful replacement for the current lackluster X-Type model, but it can't quite make up its mind on a design direction for its entry-level luxury car. Automotive News reports that a front-running option may well be an all-wheel drive "shooting brake," or luxury station wagon.
