The sedan in general is a failing platform. They are being cut by many manufactures. The SUV crossovers are the new sedan.

    We shall see.
    Again, a sedan could be successful IF you bring back STYLE and WOOD and seats that don’t fester your hemroids………

This is the WORST news today! The BEST news is lan Callum is leaving Jaguar. I think he is one of primary reasons for Jaguar’s problems today! The XJ6 has been what kept Jaguar afloat for so many years. I bet Mercede will never dump their “S class” nor BMW drop their 7 Series!
