Report: Jaguar To Offer 3 Crossovers By 2020

A number of luxury automakers are finally offering a crossover vehicle as a way to draw in people and generate some much-needed cash. Jaguar’s going a step or two further by going ahead with three new crossovers, which TopSpeed reports will launch by 2020.

Everyone already knows about the midsize F-Pace, which Jaguar says will hit dealerships sometime in 2016. It’s based on the dramatic C-X17 Concept that was first revealed during the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2013.

Reportedly, the D-Pace is also coming. It will use the same architecture as the new Land Rover Discovery Sport. While that means the crossover will be easy to scale, don’t expect a large, three-row version anytime. The word is that Jaguar is looking to keep the D-Pace small and sporty, pitting it against the likes of the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA.

If size is what you need, Jaguar will have you covered with the J-Pace. With three ample rows of seating, it will go head-to-head against the Mercedes GLS (currently known as the GL) and the Audi Q8, among other big family SUVs and crossovers. Even though the J-Pace will be large, don’t expect it to be a bloated mess that won’t handle or accelerate worth squat. That’s because the Jaguar J-Pace is supposed to share an aluminum chassis with the incredibly athletic Range Rover. Speculation is that the same V-6, V-8 and plug-in hybrid powertrains from the Land Rover Range Rover will also be available for the J-Pace, which is a very good thing.

Thanks to the sharing of platforms with Land Rover, Jaguar stands to make some fat profit margins with each F-, P- and J-Pace it sells. Even if you’re not into crossovers in the least, that kind of cash could mean more crazy performance sedans, coupes and roadsters from Jaguar.
