The SUV will have its essential underpinnings such as the running gear and powertrain borrowed from Jaguar’s sister brand Land Rover.

We have seen the E-Pace hitting the roads and have also witnessed the all-electric I-Pace crossover making its global debut. Now it seems like the car maker is busy prepping its next big SUV, the J Pace, for its official set off into the global SUV market, sometime in 2021.

The car, the name of which is not yet confirmed (Call it J-Pace for now), would be the British giant’s answer to the day’s rocketing demand for luxury and performance SUVs globally, undoubtedly an apt foe to the currently unchallenged king of the segment, the Porsche Cayenne.

Speaking in detail about the car, Autocar adds that it would look fresh and subtle as the Jaguar design director Ian Callum would draw it to be an on-road biased SUV, but they also report that this highly capable vehicle would depend upon the Range Rover series for its essential underpinnings like the running gears and powertrains.

Not much for details from Jaguar yet.

Though very little is known about the details, the brand’s past statements point to its plans of having a minimum of one electrified version of every model available by 2020s, which essentially implies that it won’t be too far-fetched to expect a plug-in hybrid for the J-Pace, sometime in the days to come.

As for the mills, the petrol hearted version, something that we are sure would show up initially if not always, would reportedly flaunt a 5.0-liter V 8 unit. The all-aluminum body that the car is hoped to boast of, would keep the weights in check and would most likely give it a low- wide stance. The J Pace is hoped to have a more spacious and more comfortable rear seat than some Land Rovers, something that would promise the chauffeur-loving share of its customers, the comfort, and convenience they deserve.

Next: BMW M2 Competition drops before we are supposed to see it.

The stellar reputation and success of the F Pace and innumerable eyes that the I Pace has managed to turn, all but signify the fact that Jaguar would undoubtedly make huge investments in the J Pace project, so as to bring out a product that can beat its German rival hands down.
