J.D. Power today announced Jaguar ranks second among all nameplates in the automotive Industry in its 2014 Initial Quality Study (IQS), giving the British brand its third consecutive year as a top ten scorer in the critical U.S. consumer study. Contributing to the high ranking was the Jaguar F-TYPE which placed second highest in its segment in its first year. The 2014 MY Jaguar line-up includes the F-TYPE, the XK coupé and convertible, and the XF and XJ saloons.
The IQS study collects customer feedback on their vehicles after 90 days of ownership.
The all-aluminum 2015 F-TYPE Coupé, starting at £51,235, joins the F-TYPE convertible to expand the Jaguar sports car lineup. The new F-TYPE R Coupé leads the range, powered by a 550PS 5-litre supercharged V8 engine and capable of reaching 60 mph from rest in 4 seconds and achieving a top track speed of 186 mph (electronically limited).
The future holds many exciting advancements for the Jaguar brand. The Jaguar XE, an all-new compact premium sports saloon is due to launch in 2015. The Jaguar XE will be the first vehicle powered by the new Ingenium high-output, fuel-efficient two-litre four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines delivering exceptional performance and low emissions. In addition, Jaguar Land Rover’s innovative new smartphone integration platform – InControl™ Apps – was launched this year and will be available in new Jaguar and Land Rover models progressively during 2014 starting with the F-TYPE.
