The next step in Jaguar's sporting bloodline is about to become reality."
It's been a very long time since Jaguar has offered a model for sale in the U.S. with a four-cylinder engine, but that is about to change this fall. With other luxury automakers like BMW and Mercedes-Benz starting to offer four-cylinder engines in its U.S. lineup, Jaguar has confirmed that it too will bring smaller engines here.
Andy Goss, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America told Automotive News, "We have only V-8s in a market that has moved to six-cylinder... With the V-8, we are fishing in a small pond."
This fall the 2.0L four-cylinder from the Range Rover Evoque will be offered in the Jaguar XF and a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 in two versions (340 hp and 380 hp) will be offered in the XF and the XJ sedan.

The two-seat F-Type sports car will launch as a convertible, becoming the fourth model in Jaguar's lineup.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, confirmed: "We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car. That car will be called the Jaguar F-TYPE, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year. The core appeal of Jaguar's cars is their sporting heart, and that heart will beat stronger than ever before in the F-TYPE. Its development is a vivid representation of the confidence and ambition of the Jaguar brand, and the desire amongst our engineers and design team to produce a world-leader in a market segment that we have been absent from for too long. But no longer, the F-TYPE is coming."
Jaguar has unveiled the 2013 XF Sportbrake, which is the wagon version of the XF. The XF Sportbrake is entirely new from the B-pillars back and has up to 59 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, making it the most versatile XF.
"The XF epitomizes the Jaguar sporting dynamic with its combination of innovative, seductive design and performance. In the XF Sportbrake this is complemented by a no-compromise approach to practicality and versatility." -Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars
"Creating the Sportbrake was a great opportunity for us to extend the XF's design aesthetic. The flow and connection of lines that lead the eye around the car result in an entirely practical estate car consistent with Jaguar's reputation for drama and elegance." -Wayne Burgess, Studio Director, Jaguar Design
the XF Sportbrake is powered by either a 2.2L four-cylinder or 3.0L diesel engine, both of which are mated to an eight-speed gearbox. Jaguar hasn't stated if the XF Sportbrake will be offered with any of its gasoline engines or if it will be offered in the U.S.
Jaguar has announced new XK and XKR Special Edition models that are now available in both coupe and convertible versions. The Special Edition models get interior upgrades like the use of scraffito leather to the front seats, instrument panel, door and rear quarter trim. The interior also gets a Poltrona Frau leather headliner and two new available veneer finishes - Shadow Walnut and Dark Figured Aluminium.
Standard features include a 525W Bowers & Wilkins sound system, adjustable heated Performance seats, a heated steering wheel and keyless entry/start.
The XK is powered by a 5.0L V8 with 380 horsepower, while the supercharged XKR packs 503 horsepower.
Unfortunately Jaguar has not announced any plans to offer the Special Edition models in the U.S.
The C-X16 is powered by a supercharged 3.0L V6 that packs 376 horsepower and 332 lb-ft. of torque. The V6 gets even more power from a Formula 1-inspired hybrid boost system with a steering-wheel mounted button for on-demand acceleration. A 92 horsepower electric motor has been integrated into the eight-speed transmission. The battery pack for the electric motor is mounted behind the seats for ideal 50:50 weight distribution. The electric motor is capable of propelling the concept up to 50 mph alone.
The C-X16 concept reaches 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 186 mph.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars: "The C-X16 embodies the established Jaguar strengths of sensual design, animal-like agility and inspirational performance and combines these with attributes that set us on a course to create sustainable sports cars of the future."
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars: "Jaguars have always been dramatically different. With the C-X16 we have moved the current award-winning design language on to the next generation, creating a car that is the very essence of future Jaguar performance."
Jaguar is going to be showing off a new concept at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show. To give us a little preview of the concept, Jaguar has released this single sketch of the C-X16 "production concept" car.
The C-X16 concept is meant to show the future of Jaguar and according to the automaker, the concept is "a precursor to future Jaguar sports cars that will aim to set new class benchmarks in design, vehicle dynamics and technology".
Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum recently stated, "Great Jaguars have always been beautiful, innovative and have looked firmly to the future. The finished C-X16 concept has the potential to do these things while retaining the ability to surprise, to excite and invigorate."
Since the concept is being labeled a "production concept" car, it's likely that what we will see next month, will be close to a future production model. It's actually being reported that the concept is based on a shortened version of the Jaguar XK platform and that the production version will be a two-seater available in both coupe and convertible versions.
