The British carmaker is clearly wasting no time resting on its laurels, having only recently launched the first-ever XE sedan onto the stage.
The UK’s Autocar reports this week that Jaguar is eager to ensure the XE is surrounded by brand-new models when it enters showrooms in the coming year.
Recent spy photos reveal that we can expect Jaguar to take the XF’s sleek profile even further with the new model, showcasing a profile that will see the roof flow dramatically into a long rear deck.
We can also expect more than a few of the XE’s styling cues to feature up front, although the XF’s recent styling update (and the 2007 C-XF concept that preceded the model) had long hinted at that look.
As with the company's new midsizer, we can expect the larger XF to ride on Jaguar Land Rover’s new iQ[AI] aluminium platform.
That new platform's scaleable design is also expected to result in the XF growing in most directions, further setting it apart from the medium XE.
The company’s new four-cylinder Ingenium engine range will likely provide motivation in the majority of models, although the company’s bigger performance engines should also feature.
Jaguar has already confirmed that its big supercharged V6 engine will feature in the XE, which suggests a similar plan for the XF, including the larger V8 unit, is also in the works.
A version of the XE’s front suspension package should also feature, giving the new XF a lightweight aluminium double-wishbone setup.
