An executive from Jaguar confirmed that the car manufacturer has given the green light for the rumored wagon version of the Jaguar XF sedan. For Jaguar lovers in North America, it is a bad news that the XF wagon might not reach its shores.
Reports say that the information came from an Engineering Manager of Jaguar saying that the XF wagon is on the cars. Another executive that handles the design for the brand said that the XF wagon will be something different and it will come with panache and character.
The Jaguar Land Rover in North America has reviewed their line up and understands the gaps that they need to fill thru expansion. The XF estate is a vehicle that they may consider in the future but they do not have plans for the wagon at the moment and did not release more information with regard to probable timing, details, or any confirmation for the XF wagon in North America.
Jaguar marketed an Estate model called X-Type Sportswagon in the United States back in 2005 running through 2008 but the vehicle went on a slow phase in the market.
The Jaguar really has done a lot to make it good in the luxury segment with their current line of XF, XJ, and XK which can make car lovers drool for their design lines. It may really good timing for Jaguar to release the XF wagon as the competition plans to roll out their bets like BMW working on the M5 Estate, Cadillac on their Sport Wagon CTS-V, and E63 AMG Estate from Mercedes Benz.
Want to get one of these drop dead gorgeous Jaguar XF’s but prefer fuel efficiency and the environment over the revs of a petrol engine — then I have some great news for you!
The new 3-litre Jag Diesel engine has been put into the XF and apparently it’s a great performer… Close to 300bhp & 450 torques, it’s a true sports diesel!
More news soon!

Tata Motors Ltd. released its plans to have Jaguar in the upmarket veering away from plans of the previous owner, Ford Motor Co., to increase volume. Tata is inclined to produce a derivative of the XF but is not going for an SUV.
According to dealers who met with Tata top executives, Jaguar is lining up production of three new cars. This may include an XF sedan, which may come as a roadster and coupe, a sports car, and a luxury car. Details about the design or engineering of the vehicles were not revealed.
An SUV development was warded off by Jaguar since one will compete with the brand Land Rover which is also owned by Ratan Tata. The SUV also doesn’t fit the overall picture that the new owner has envisioned for Jaguar, to move up in the luxury car market place.
