Jaguar Working on Range Rover Based J-Pace SUV

Jaguar is reportedly developing a new large SUV model based on the Range Rover. The move comes as sister brand Land Rover accounts for the majority of Jaguar Land Rover’s sales, causing parent company Tata to want Jaguar to grow its SUV line further.

In the last few years Jaguar has accelerated its deployment of SUV models significantly with the F-Pace, E-Pace and now the new I-Pace. Apparently the brand is wanting to expand on the larger side with a new J-Pace model.

According to AutoCar the J-Pace will be engineered to target the Porsche Cayenne, the SUV that basically launched the high-end luxury SUV segment. While Jaguar will borrow many of its aluminum platform components from the Range Rover, the design will be all Jaguar and the focus will be center on on-road performance. The J-Pace is expected to be slightly larger than the Range Rover, lower and more spacious than its Land Rover sibling.

The J-Pace is also expected to borrow its powertrains from Land Rover.

Right now a new J-Pace is not expected until 2021. Its launch will likely be part of a product onslaught planned at Jaguar that includes an electrified version of every model by 2020 and an all-new electric XJ that will launch in 2019.
