The 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon was teased during the Paris auto show and the brand confirmed that they are bringing it to the U.S. stores next year.
Instead of launching the model, the team decided to tease the entire crowd and showcased a well camouflaged version of the car. While they revealed some information, the actual design of the car couldn’t be guessed from the one they showed during the event. But, Jaguar did confirm that the 2017 XF Sportbrake wagon will be a global launch and is coming to the United States. The information was confirmed by Joe Eberhardt, CEO of Jaguar for the North American region.
Speaking to a leading automobile magazine during the auto expo, the head of the brand also confirmed that it is not a lifted wagon or a crossover that Jaguar prefers to call a wagon. The designers have gone lengths to ensure that the new launch is a pure wagon built on a sturdy aluminum architecture and is powered by ingenium engines. On launch date, the company plans to offer buyers the choice to go for a petrol or diesel engine as they wish. While it was confirmed during the expo, we assume that a 2.0-liter petrol and a 2.0-liter diesel engine variant will be used for the XF car.
For those who were disappointed due to the camouflaged 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake, the automobile manufacturer confirmed that they will show the actual car in an auto show next year. As it is slated for official launch by the mid or end of next year, Jaguar will reveal it in the first quarter in one of the prominent auto shows.
Jaguar has always enjoyed great sales in the U.S. The company’s latest launch, the F-Pace SUV is going at a brisk pace. Those who like to buy the SUV may not be able to do so as it is sold out for at least three months until new stocks arrive. Eberhardt added that they are trying to bring in more cars from other markets to satisfy the needs of customers in the region and are going to increase production of the SUVs in the following months.
Despite the Volkswagen diesel scandal, both petrol and diesel engine variants of the F-Pace SUV has been selling well for the Jaguar brand. The company has found a new set of buyers and repositioned themselves in the U.S. market, paving way for a great launch for the 2017 Jaguar XF Sportbrake.
