Jaguar fans and detractors will have to live with four more years of the X-type if what AutoWeek reports is true. The current generation of the flailing sedan and wagon isn't due to be up for a rehash until 2009, though suppliers have not been contacted about a redesign. Jaguar has not made up its mind to either replace the car with a similarly-priced sport wagon or leave the near-luxury segment entirely. X-Type sales are down 36.9 percent through March of this year. Jaguar announced X-Types would no longer be available with the 2.5-liter engine, the lowest priced version for sale in the U.S. market. An eight-year cycle for a near-luxury marque is a little high don'tcha think?
