A New Jaguar Based Range Rover?

Geoff Maxted
October 30, 2013

Jaguar C-X17
Nothing definite yet but Land Rover may introduce a new model for its Range Rover line-up - based on Jaguar Land Rover's new aluminium platform - which would fill the not exactly yawning gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.

JLR announced the new platform at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and said it would form the basis of a new Jaguar saloon due in 2015 that will challenge the BMW 3-series and 5-series.

The company also showed the Jaguar C-X17 Concept (pictured) that is based on the platform, but declined to say whether it would be built. Not building the C-X17 would be a tragedy. I hope they realise that and get on with it.

The new Range Rover is seen as the bedrock for ensuring this platform is profitable and accordingly the company are spending £1.5billion to make it so. They expect the L560 - the new Range Rover model- to sell up to 80,000 unit’s a year coupled as it may be with the new economical four cylinder ‘Hotfire’ engines. A starting price guesstimate is around £39k. We wait with bated breath.
