2014 Jaguar XJR
The 2014 Jaguar XJR returns to the Jaguar model line as the quintessential Jaguar sports sedan, offering British luxury with extraordinary sporting performance. The XJR incorporates bespoke chassis and aerodynamic developments to create the most sporting member of the XJ sedan family.
The XJR will be the highest performance XJ sedan with 550hp and a raft of other modifications, but also an extraordinary opulent machine with more than expected levels of interior luxury.
2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT
The 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT is the ultimate track-ready and street legal version of the XK Coupe which was developed by the Jaguar ETO division, an in-house specialty vehicle group.
The XKR-S GT begins with the high-strength all-aluminum body structure featured on every Jaguar XK. This structure is assembled using aerospace derived aluminum bonding and riveting techniques. The addition of extensive aerodynamic enhancements, suspension changes, and carbon ceramic brakes, endow the XKR-S GT with track-ready performance. A limited production run will see just 30 cars built for North America, with 25 for the United States, and 5 for Canada.
2014 Jaguar F-TYPE
The new Jaguar F-TYPE is a two-seat, convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. Joining the XK convertible and coupe models, the new F-TYPE provides Jaguar with a broader line of sports and GT models.
The 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE combines low vehicle weight (starting at 3,521 pounds), high power (340hp, 380hp and 495hp versions) and superb aerodynamics to achieve a pure sports car experience, yet with Jaguar elegance and luxury. MSRP starts at $69,000.
2014 Jaguar XFR-S
The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the second model in the ultra-high performance R-S range from Jaguar, following the 2012 XKR-S. Just 100 will be offered for the U.S. for the 2014 model year. The XFR-S is powered by the same 5-liter supercharged V8 as the XKR-S, producing 550hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the fastest and most powerful sedan Jaguar has ever produced. The XFR-S will sprint from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds) and on to an electronically limited top track speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
2013 Jaguar XJ Sedan
The Jaguar flagship sedan with advanced aluminum construction makes the XJ a highly spirited and agile driver's car.
A standard new 3-liter 340hp supercharged V6 engine and available Instinctive All-Wheel Drive™ debut for 2013, while the 5-liter V8 continues in naturally aspirated 385hp and supercharged 470hp and 510hp forms. All XJ engines come teamed to a new XF eight-speed automatic transmission for 2013.
2013 Jaguar XK Coupe and Convertible
The first car created under the leadership of Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum, the XK Coupe and Convertible models typify the Jaguar grand touring performance persona in an ultra-modern sporting car with advanced aluminum construction.
Having received major design and luxury revisions for model-year 2012, the Jaguar XK expands its offerings for 2013. The XK line now starts at $79,000 (MSRP) with a new Touring model in Coupe and Convertible versions, and tops out with the limited-production, 186 mph XKR-S. Just 100 XKR-S Coupes and 100 XKR-S Convertibles will be offered in the U.S. for the 2013 model year.
2013 Jaguar XF Sedan
The Jaguar XF embodies the brand's long sport sedan heritage, which began with the original Jaguar Mk. II sedan in 1959. The XF received a major design revision for 2012, which more closely aligned it with the new-generation XJ design. For 2013, the XF introduces two new forced-induction powertrains, a new ZF® eight-speed automatic transmission and the new Instinctive All-Wheel Drive™ system. The XF includes such Jaguar signature "surprise and delight" elements as the JaguarDrive Selector™ that rises from the center console and air vents that rotate to their open position when the start button is pressed.
