Jaguar is in the midst of a major production expansion and new details are starting to emerge about the company's future product lineup.
Things will kick off later this year when the company introduces the entry-level XE which was recently spotted by our spy photographers. It will ride on an all-new aluminum platform and offer a variety of four-cylinder Ingenium engines.
The F-Type will benefit from a number of upgrades including the addition of an entry-level model with a twin-turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops approximately 300 bhp (223 kW). The car could also be equipped with all-wheel drive starting in 2016. Car Magazine is also reporting there will be a Speedster variant inspired by the Project 7 concept.
In 2016, we can expect to see the second-generation XF which will be based on the same aluminum platform that underpins the XE. The model will reportedly be about the same size as its predecessor but feature more interior room thanks to improved packaging.
2017 could usher in a brand new sports car to replace the XK which is slated to go out of production later this year.Nothing is official but the magazine says the car will ride on a "significantly stretched" version of the F-Type platform and be larger and more luxurious than the current model.
A year later, we can expect a new XJ with more conservative styling. Little is known about the car but it will apparently be larger and more spacious than its predecessor. There are also rumors about an XJ coupe or four-door coupe but nothing is official as of yet.
Last but not least, Jaguar will reportedly introduce a compact model to compete with the Audi in 2020. The car will likely be front-wheel drive but all-wheel drive could be optional.
