The British luxury car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover is now looking to head to the United States in order to attract the SUV craving customers of America. The Jaguar F Pace crossover SUV launched by Jaguar Land Rover is the first luxury SUV to come out of the stable of Jaguar in its 80 year log history. The F pace crossover was showcased by Jaguar at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany and has received applause and adulations for its beefy and sporty looks.
Jaguar looks to be not satisfied with the sales that it is getting in Europe and wants to explore the U.S markets as well. After the Indian auto giant Tata Motors taking over Jaguar Land Rover, it looks like Jaguar is going places. Tata Motors bought Jaguar from Ford for $2.3 billion in 2008. The Jaguar has been seeing good sales in the U.S markets recently and a total of 11,000 units have been sold by the company in the first nine months of 2015 in the US.
Jaguar knows that the market for luxury SUVs is very strong in the US and Porsche SUV sale in the US is testimony to this fact. Hence, Jaguar also wants to bring its F pace crossover to test the American waters and to give the SUV luxury car buyers another option in the market.
There are plans for Jaguar to bring the attractive Jaguar XE sedan to America as well along with the F pace crossover. This means that there will be a good tussle in the luxury car market in America with BMW, Mercedes Benz and Porsche already establishes a base here. Both these premium models from jaguar will be touching the American soil in 2016 spring. The F Pace will be starting at a price of $43,000 and it is expected that the XE sedan comes at an attractive and affordable price of $35,000.
The F pace crossover is having a modular aluminum chassis and is offered in both gasoline and diesel versions in Europe. The car also comes out in both rear wheel and all wheel drive. The 2017 F pace crossover SUV from Jaguar that will debut in the US will be offered with a V6, 380 HP engine that is married to an eight speed automatic transmission. There is also a possibility of bringing the four cylinder Ingenuim diesel engine to the American shores later in 2016.
