Looking forward to 2015 with Jaguar
With Christmas and the New Year just around the corner – it’s a great time to see what exciting new updates Jaguar has in store for 2015.
2014 has been a great year for Jaguar with the announcement of its fastest ever road-going vehicle, the F-TYPE Project 7, along with the birth of its new Special Vehicle Operations team.
Next year is shaping up to be just as exciting with the highly anticipated Jaguar XE arriving in January and an AWD version of the F-TYPE on the way.
Take a look below as we profile some of the highlights to come in 2015 from this most famous of British car makers.Jaguar XE
Jaguar’s new executive model, the Jaguar XE, has been in the headlines for most of 2014 – it’s believed the baby saloon will be the biggest selling car in the company’s history.
Built on an entirely new aluminium-intensive body; weight is kept down and strength is added; meaning the XE is 20 per cent stiffer than the XF, allowing Jag engineers to give the car an even sportier setup.
More economical that many in its class – the XE will manage a frugal 75mpg and produce a mere 99g/km of CO2 meaning it qualifies for a company car BIK tax rate of just 12 per cent.
Interior styling is full of the quality traditional Jaguar touches you would expect and features an eight-inch high-definition multimedia touchscreen built into the central console.
This new system introduces super connectivity with apps, mobile phones, voice control and Bluetooth. It is now possible to start the XE, set climate control and other in-car functions all via your smartphone.
Billed by Jaguar as a true driver’s car, the rear-wheel drive, small sports saloon will look to compete directly with the BMW 3 series and will be priced from £27,000.Jaguar XF
The brand new jaguar XF is set to go on sale next autumn following its official unveil at the New York Motor Show in April.
Styling cues are rumoured to be heavily influenced by the forthcoming XE including a larger version of the compact saloons grille.
The XF will also feature a similar interior design to the XE with Jaguar’s new infotainment system central to this new look.
Along with efficiency improvements – Jaguar has strived to cut weight in an effort to gain extra agility and reinforce Jaguars position as the sportier option in every segment.
Engine-wise, the XF is likely to be fitted with a version of the F-TYPE’s 3.0-litre supercharged V6 powertrain with other models equipped with the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel options from the Ingenium range.
Prices are yet to be announced but we should expect more information after the New York Motor Show.Jaguar AWD F-TYPE
Jaguar officially confirmed an all-wheel drive F-TYPE in November.
Not only did Jaguar confirm that the long rumoured all-wheel drive F-TYPE R Coupe is set for production but also announced that a range of new F-TYPE variants are in development.
Details regarding the specifics of the range are still yet to be announced –however we do know that the AWD F-TYPE R Coupe will be capable of 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186mph.
