Titled the CX-17, it is expected to give us the first glimpse of what a potential Jaguar SUV could look like.

Jaguar plans to reveal all this on Monday, at the Frankfurt auto show, with a live-stream of the reveal on their Facebook page. It kicks off at 11:30am EST at Those who have been waiting for the big cat to make an even bigger cat may wish to tune in and see what the future could bring.
