The 2016 Jaguar XQ will be the first ever crossover vehicle of the famous British marque. The all-new SUV model is actually based on the C-X17 concept first presented at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. In fact, the name of the future Jaguar’s SUV is still unconfirmed and the company has registered both „XQ“ and „Q-type“ with the European Union trademark agency, but the latter is less likely since the „-type“ names have been reserved for sports models in Jaguar’s lineup thus far.

New models like XK and XF sedans and F-type sport coupe have been already introduced and now it is turn for something completely new that we haven’t seen so far from this British car maker. Jaguar plans to introduce new model called XQ, which will be a crossover. This segment of cars became very popular in last few years, so it isn’t surprising that Jaguar wants to introduce its player in this class.

After buying the brand from Ford, Jaguar’s new owners have wasted no time revitalizing the iconic British marque. While reinforcing its traditional position in high-end luxury, the automaker has rolled out new classics like the XK and XF sedans and aimed at Porsche’s sport coupe dominance with the new F-Type. Now with the 2016 Jaguar XQ, the brand turns its attention to the popular luxury crossover market.

Previewed in the Jaguar C-X17 concept, the XQ will square up against smaller crossovers like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. Jaguar hasn’t confirmed the SUV for production, but we expect the XQ to materialize with a new aluminum platform that will find its way under every new model, starting with the forthcoming XS compact sedan and eventually the next XJ and XF replacement.

2016 Jaguar XQ Specs

The 2016 Jaguar XQ will be a compact luxury crossover, which will be able to accommodate 5 passengers. It will be one of the smallest models that Jaguar produces, but that doesn’t mean that it will lack in terms of luxury. This model will be based on C-X17 concept model and although it isn’t confirmed, production is planned for next year. The 2016 Jaguar XQ will use new lightweight platform, which is very flexible and modular and it will be used for various types of new Jaguar vehicles. This platform will provide a perfect balance between performances and fuel economy. Beside excellent exterior design, which will be heavily influenced by C-X17 concept, 2016 XQ will be also characterized by excellent interior. Cabin won’t be only stylish, it will very spacious and comfortable and also full of modern features.

It is a part of Jaguar’s transition towards new flexible aluminum architecture that’s supposed to underpin all of the future models of the British carmaker. The first Jaguar built on this new architecture will be the XE sedan debuting at the Paris Motor Show this October, while the 2016 XQ is expected to follow suit. According to company sources, the new light-weight platform will enable Jaguar to rival the biggest names of the automotive industry, especially the German competitors. It’s rumored that the company’s goal is to sell at least 200,000 units per year, which shows how high the expectations are when it comes to the 2016 Jaguar XQ SUV.

2016 Jaguar XQ Engine

From Jaguar we can’t expect anything less from excellent performance and 2016 XQ definitely won’t be exception. The base variant will be powered by 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which outputs 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of max torque. More powerful variant will be equipped with V6 engine. It will be a 3.0 liter supercharged V6, which will be able to output over 330 horses and 305 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, 2016 Jaguar XQ will be able to sprint to 60 mpg in five seconds, while top speed will be around 155 mph. Both engine will be powered with 9-speed automatic transmission.

The XQ’s performance will be closely benchmarked against its German rivals, with further R and R-S options on the table. The beauty of this chopped-length PLA architechture, which will also underpin the new XF and XK, is that even the compact models will be quite wide and should be able to fit the firm’s rorty supercharged V-8 under that shapely ’bonnet.’

This means the XQ-type cannot share the Evoque ’s “new” on-demand AWD that disables rear drive on the highway. The Evoque ’s nine-speed autobox is engineered to fit both engine formats.

The AWD model is expected to run Jaguar’s potent supercharged V-6 paired to the XF’s new Instinctive AWD technology. Even this runs a rear bias – ensuring some drift potential for this big cat.

From a projected 7.2 second sprint for the base XQ-type, the AWD V-6 is expected to scorch the earth with a 5.1 second lunge to 60 mph.

Expect a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder for the base engine and a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 option. An eight-speed transmission is almost a given, as is optional all-wheel drive. The C-X17 concept even touted torque-vectoring braking technology and a double-wishbone front suspension intended to emphasize the crossover’s sporting credentials.
