Jaguar Plans To Release Luxury Wagon Sportbrake! Jaguar recently previewed the XF-based Wagon, the Sportbrake, at the 2016 Paris Auto Show and although exact production details have yet to be determined, Motor Trend is reporting that the wagon has plans to be sold in the United States. According to information shared with Motor Trend from Joe Eberhardt, president and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America, the wagon will share an aluminum architecture and Ingenium engine (both gasoline and diesel) with the XF sedan. The company plans to unveil the Jaguar wagon at an award show next year, but the exact show was not confirmed. Caranddriver confirmed the report with Jaguar and got confirmation that the Sportbrake has been approved for “global markets.”
With the help of the F-Pace, which is sold out for the next two to three months, Jaguar has become the largest growing luxury brand in the U.S. Eberhardt shared that unfortunately, the XE, hasn’t been selling as strongly and may make room for more SUV’s in the lineup and shared that the brand is “trying to get more production by reallocating from other markets and from other cars.” Diesel engines will continue to be part of the Jaguar-Land Rover engine mix since they account for 15% of Range Rover sales; however, a diesel F-Pace is not to be expected.
