Just noticed this but is there a hitch receiver on the back of this XE mule?

This car, is the one that will make or break the company, thats how important it is, Jaguar cant exist on 70k units a year, they have to expand and they have got to do it right, I feel they will, there will styling nods to F and XF, but i just hope no direct usages.
No I dont think anyone is expecting a direct share of head or tail lamps, but a design language is a design language. The Germans don't get to laugh at anyone design wise, especially not with their sterile lemon enema approach to style.

Look up and down Audi and BMW's lineup, each vehicle is a copy of a copy of a copy. Gingerbread cookie cutters...

It does... Its likely for internal benchmarks, that or consider that the CX17 (production name yet??) is expected to share engines, chassis and AWD with XE. So likely Jaguar is getting two birds stoned at once...

The tow hook is there to take electronic trailers, lots of manufacturers do this, the trailer carries all sorts of electronics that measure how pulling something reacts to the cars design.

It also assists in seeing how the car performs with extra weight and whilst towing.

Good points, not too familiar with how car makers go about this whole process. Now this has me wondering what towing cap might be like although i don't plan on towing too much, at most a sea-doo

That's what I was thinking. It doesn't really seem like the type of car that I would try to tow something with. And anyone who can afford a Jaguar should be able to afford a proper vehicle to do some towing if they need it.
