The British based automaker Jaguar is planning to produce a replacement for the XJ flagship sedan in 2016 which should come much closer to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
The car manufacturer isn’t saying anything official for the moment on a replacement for the XJ flagship sedan in 2016 and the development of a model which will come closer to one of its main rivals, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but that doesn’t mean that the British based automaker isn’t considering it. According to the guys at insideline.com, Jaguar is currently debating what kind of car should replace the XJ flagship sedan in 2016 and the significant difference of opinion within the company is keeping the model in the same spot for the moment.
The luxurious Jaguar XJ has been held back by the lack of a four-wheel drive option in the United States and by a missing 3.0 liter V6 gasoline engine in China and it’s believed that because of this the company only managed to sell under half the rate of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW 7-Series over-seas. No details are known for the moment on the replacement which will come in 2016 for the XJ flagship sedan but we will keep you updated on the subject.
