Yes, we're getting a Jaguar station wagon in the US
Is the wagon back? First we learned the U.S. market was getting the new Buick Regal Sportback TourX station wagon, and now Jaguar has revealed the first glimpse of its new XF Sportbrake in production trim, confirming the car will be available in the States.
We first received sketchy details about the new XF Sportbrake at last fall’s Paris motor show, with the upcoming model building on the Europe-only 2015 XFR-S Sportbrake from the 2015 Geneva auto show. Since Jaguar is the official car partner for the Wimbledon 2017 Championships, the company teased the new wagon with an outline on Wimbledon’s Center Court.
They mean to win Wimbledon.
Jaguar design boss Ian Callum promises the Sportbrake will add practicality to the XF range without sacrificing the “dynamic design and agile handling our customers expect.”
We don’t expect the Sportbrake’s underpinnings to differ much from the XF sedan: That means an aluminum-intensive chassis, a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines (possibly including a diesel), and either rear- or all-wheel drive, in multiple trim levels, from base to Portfolio. What about a hot-rod R version? We sure hope so.
