PostHeaderIcon Jaguar E-Pace

Back in May of 2015, Jaguar went on record saying it wanted a baby crossover to slot in just below the F-pace. It took almost a year, but by February of 2016, we had caught Jaguars new E-pace out in prototype form. We’ve seen it stretching its wheels since then, but it’s now set to debut on July 13, 2017, and Jaguar has released a couple of teaser images. As of the time of this writing, few specifics are known, but it will be offered with a range of gasoline engines and will have the latest technology and driver assistance features available, which is very promising considering the E-Pace will sit at the bottom of the Jaguar’s “Pace” lineup and will start out at $38,600 for the entry-level model, putting it about $6,000 more expensive than the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA that it will compete with.

Still don’t think the E-Pace is a big deal? Well, when you consider the fact that the F-Pace has grown sales by 44 percent for Jaguar through May of 2017, the E-Pace has a lot to live up to. It also shows that Jaguar’s design language is right on point with what people want right now, which means the E-pace could turn out to be a really big deal if it follows in the F-Pace’s footsteps. For now, however, let’s take a look at the teasers and talk a little more about what we can expect next month when the E-Pace makes its long-awaited debut.

Update 6/21/2017: Jaguar is set to unveil the E-Pace compact SUV on July 13, 2017, but in the meantime, it has released two teaser images to give us an idea of what we can expect. Check out the special “Teaser” section below to see what all the hype is about.


PostHeaderIcon Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Introduced in 2007 to replace the ageing S-Type, the Jaguar XF was redesigned for the 2016 model year. The makeover brought an evolutionary restyling but turned the four-door sedan in a sportier proposition on the outside and a more luxurious vehicle on the inside. The XF also received new drivetrains, most notably the company’s recently launched 2.0-liter four-cylinder in both gasoline and diesel formats. The 3.0-liter V-6 was also carried over, but with significant upgrades. Unlike the first-generation model, the second-gen XF arrived without a wagon version. This changed for the 2018 model year when Jaguar launched a redesigned XF Sportbrake.

Making things that much better, it’s available in the U.S. too!

The Sportbrake’s return is a bit surprising, especially since Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design, once predicted the death of the station wagon. But, while I’d like to know what made him change his mind, I’m actually glad that the Sportbrake is back in dealerships and especially in the U.S., where the midsize market was limited to just two models, with a couple more available in other niches. Sure, it’s still ridiculous, but with three different products in the premium market, we finally have some proper action going on.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO Division Needs To Be Recognized As One Of The Best In The Business

A few days ago, Jaguar released a special edition version of the XE compact sedan. Most of you may have heard or read about it, but its unveiling wasn’t met with the same “break-the-Internet” vibe as similar products released by Ferrari (the Ferrari J50) and Lamborghini (the Lamborghini Centenerio). Part of it isn’t Jaguar’s fault because a car like the XE SV Project 8 doesn’t illicit the same level of awe as the J50 and the Centenerio. But how much of it is related to Jaguar and SVO not getting the respect it feels it deserves?

There’s an element of truth in the rationale that Jaguar is slowly building its name back to relevance after years of toiling in mediocrity. It’s done a remarkable job in recent years, but there’s still some level of hesitancy when it comes to believing that Jaguar has returned to the level of rivals like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The introduction of SVO, or as it’s really called, Special Vehicles Operations, is meant to bring that Jaguar name closer to the marque. This is where a car like the XE SV Project 8 comes into the picture, and if you haven’t been a fan of SVO’s work in the past, then you will be once you see what this juiced-up XE compact sedan is fully capable of. The full scope of details covering the XE SV Project 8 will be revealed when it makes its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of the month.

ac_schnitzer_jaguar_f-pace_3

Besides BMW and MINI, German tuner AC Schnitzer is also doing up these days products from Jaguar Land Rover. The latest is the AC Schnitzer Jaguar F-Pace and it benefits from a cosmetic upgrade program designed to make the British SUV slightly more naughty. 

In terms of body kit you don’t get much from the AC Schnitzer Jaguar F-Pace, just a rear roof spoiler and tiny lip up front. But they are sizable ones and besides looking kinda cool also produce copious amounts of downforce. The beauty is taken care largely through a careful selection of wheels, combined with sport lowered suspension that slashed up to 25mm off the ride height. The wheels on offer for the big Jag include AC2 alloys in BiColor black/silver or black/anthracite with 9.0J x 22″.

AC Schnitzer Jaguar F-Pace also features a set of new tailpipes at the back connected to a sport exhaust system with stainless steel twin silencer with 4 chromed “Sport” tailpipes (right/left combination), or 4 “Sport Black” tailpipes (right/left combination) for the F-PACE 2.0d or 3.0.d. The system offers 6 sound variants plus standard via a remote control. The tailpipes come in 2 chromed “Sport” tailpipes or 2 “Sport Black” tailpipes in right/left combination.

PostHeaderIcon What’s The Best Sporty Luxury Sedan You Can Get For Less Than $50K?

At its most basic, a sport sedan should be a happy balance between two competing philosophies. The “sport” half of the equation should make it engaging, both in the way it drives, and the way it looks. A sport sedan should issue a dose of adrenaline when the hammer is down, and be a willing dance partner in the corners. It’s also gotta draw attention, turning heads as it goes, making its owner pause momentarily after exiting and locking the doors. Then there’s the “sedan” bit. A sport sedan isn’t supposed to be stripped down and basic – practicality and comfort are paramount. Often used as a daily driver, backside coddling should be there in abundance, complementing the car’s speed potential, rather than taking away from it. All told, it’s a big ask, but this segment has plenty of contenders vying for the title of best. In this comparison, we look at six of the top entries and sort them out, from first to last.

Listed in alphabetical order, this comparison will take a look at the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Chrysler 300, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. We’ve evaluated each in terms of exterior aesthetics, interior comfort and technology, powertrain and drivetrain specs, and chassis and handling. We’ve also included a glut of info in chart and graph form to help you make a quick comparison. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the best sporty luxury sedan you can get for less than $50,000.

PostHeaderIcon Lumma Jaguar F-Pace Kit Goes Official

lumma-f-type-top

Following an early preview, the highly anticipated Lumma Jaguar F-Pace CLR F tuning package is now available, as showcased here in full glory. The upgrade package for the British SUV consists of cool body kit, a number of interior enhancements, some awesome wheels, and a decent power upgrade.

The power upgrade Lumma Design is proposing covers the supercharged all-alloy 3.0-liter V6 with 280kW / 380hp which is teh most popular engine for the F-Pace. When ready, the power package for Lumma Jaguar F-Pace will take that output up tp  353kW / 480hp, complemented with a sport exhaust system featuring four tailpipes. It’s a good job then they have fitted the SUV with 24-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in 295/350ZR24 and 355/25ZR24 tires as these have more contact surface with the ground and can handle the extra power better.

Photo Album:

As for the styling kit which is the most important part of the Lumma Jaguar F-Pace CLR F, the ingredients include a new front bumper and rear apron, complete with dynamic side skirt, rear diffuser and tailgate spoiler, all enhanced by a series light touches such as new badges and emblems as well as sport grille surrounds and inserts and side molding. The interior package, meanwhile, consists of  finest leather and Alcantara in a wide choice of hues as well as aluminium, carbon-fibre or traditional wood veneers, sport pedals and Lumma floor mats.

PostHeaderIcon A Jaguar F-Type with a Four-Cylinder? New Entry Level Trim on the Way

Around since 2013, the F-Type is Jaguar’s newest sports car, a spiritual successor to the E-Type, and an all-out replacement for the XK. Up until now, you could get it with a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that’s tuned to deliver either 340 horsepower in entry-level form or 380 horsepower in S form. Or you could get a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 tuned to deliver either 550 horsepower or 575 ponies if you went with the range-topping SVR trim. Prices ranged anywhere from about $61,000 to more than $125,000 for the SVR, but as fate would have it, the F-type just might get a little more affordable and easier to obtain by those without deep pockets.

So, what’s the big deal here? Well, the F-Type is now going to be offered in entry-level form with a four-cylinder engine. But, don’t go freaking out, punching walls, or setting shit on fire just yet. See, the new four-cylinder in question is a 2.0-liter turbo with 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque on tap. Not bad, huh? Jaguar hasn’t mentioned where maximum horsepower kicks in within the powerband, but all of that torque is available at an excessively low 1,500 rpm – obviously, made possible by a healthy dose of turbo goodness. Power will be routed to the wheels via an eight-speed Quickshift automatic.

Sounds pretty wild, right? Well, keep reading to learn more about this new, all-aluminum, Ingenium engine and what makes it tick.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar F-Pace Wins 2017 World Car of Year Award

World Car of Year 2017

Nobody really expected this, but jurors at the World Car Awards decided in their infinite wisdom that the Jaguar F-Pace is the best automobile in the world in the year 2017. And if you find that a bit questionable, they gave it World Car Design of the Year prize which means they think it is the most beautiful car of the year!

Then again, as many of you know, World Car of the Year awards do not reflect the public’s opinion and ha nothing to do with the performance of the car in the market. And it doesn’t affect that to a great degree, either. It just buys the manufacturer some bragging rights in the first pages of the car’s brochure.

Of course, none of that means Jaguar F-Pace is a bad car. Quite the contrary, the British SUV is a fabulous mid-size SUV. It’s just that when you think of ‘World Car of Year’ better choices come to mind.

At any rate, if you have already bought an F-Pace you can be happy that 75 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries think you made the right choice. Currently the SUv’s range is not very expansive. Engine options for the F-PACE range from the efficient and innovative four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel, with CO2 emissions as low as 126g/km* to the high-performance 380PS, supercharged V6 petrol model that can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.5 seconds. Rest assured, more variants and editions will be released over the coming years.

PostHeaderIcon Official: Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder

Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder-0

The latest addition to the really extensive F-Type family is an efficient four-pot version. The 2018 Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder comes with a 2.0 liter engine but it’s no slouch since that 2.0 liter is capable of making 300 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful engines of its kind in the world. 

That means Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder has only 40 horsepower less than the V6 model and yet because it is lighter the performance is not that different. Acceleration from 0-60 mph takes just 5.4 seconds and maximum speed is 155 mph, which is quick by any standards. Best of all, the four-banger F-Type enjoys a fuel consumption reduction of more than 16 per cent compared to the 340 PS V6, and has CO2 emissions of just 163g/km.

The 300 PS and 400 Nm 2.0 liter engine in the Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder features especially tuned intake and exhaust manifolds so despite having less cylinder than its big brothers, this little sports car sounds just as wild. An assortment of driving aids are also present to make sure you don’t get carried away with the power. The list includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Speed Limiter and Lane Keep Assist.

Jaguar F-Type Four-Cylinder goes on sale shortly with a starting price of £49,900. If that sounds dear for a four-cylinder car, keep in mind this is no ordinary four-cylinder, but a posh and beautiful one with a four-pot that puts to shame most V6s.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF was first introduced in 2007 as a replacement for the Jaguar S-Type and has been a fairly successful model, with 202,678 models sold between 2009 and 2016. In 2015, the XF went through a generational shift that didn’t change its overall design too drastically but did bring about the use of aluminum, allowing Jag to shed more than 400 pounds compared to the first-gen model. The second-gen model is offered with a wide variation of engines that include diesel and gasoline models, depending on the market. The 2.0-liter diesel engine gave buyers the option of a six-speed manual transmission, but going with the larger diesel or any of the gasoline drinkers sticks you with an automatic. An AWD system is available with some drivetrain configurations, and power output ranged anywhere between 161 and 375 ponies.

It’s only been two years since the second-gen XF rolled into showrooms, and for 2017, the U.S. model was updated to include a diesel engine for the first time. No other notable changes came with the 2017 model year, but 2018 might be a different story if these spy shots are any indication. The prototype you see here is wearing extensive camo for some reason and, while it’s hard to spot any real changes, there are a few. It’s way too early for Jag to be testing a third-gen model, so it looks like we may see a serious design update in the near future. For now, let’s take a better look at these spy shots and talk a little more about it.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition

Despite some initial skepticism surrounding the car when it first burst into the scene back in back in 2013, the Jaguar F-Type has flipped the script on those narratives by making a compelling case as one of the most enjoyable sports cars on the market. That’s a testament to Jaguar, who saw the potential for the car and worked tirelessly to make it happen. Fast forward to today and the F-Type is still going strong with close to 15,000 units sold since it first entered the market. And so, as the F-Type prepares to enter the new year, Jaguar is throwing a handful of updates its way to go with the debut of the F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition, a special edition variant that will only be available for 2018 F-Type models.

The F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition comes with special indicators that should let customers know that they’re buying a variant of the sports car that’s going to be sold for only a short period of time. It’s hardly a surprise that Jaguar is making this move, in large part because it already has a number of F-Type variants on the market today. Instead of adding another one into the mix, it’s packaging it as a special edition that not only carries unique cosmetic features, but it also has a specific output that no other F-Type variant has. Judging by the name it’s been given, we can all venture a guess how much power this version of the F-Type is going to have.

It’s unclear though if Jaguar plans to sell the F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition in all the markets where you can find F-Type models, although it did say that the model will be sold “worldwide, but for one model year only.” Expect more details to arrive regarding the availability of the F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition in specific markets, but at least for Jaguar’s home market of the U.K., the special edition F-Type is scheduled to go on sale in the first quarter of 2017 at a starting price of £70,115, or around $85,360 based on current exchange rates.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar J-Type

When it comes to using four wheels to get around a track as fast as possible, the blueprint is pretty well established at this point. All you have to do is look to the top echelon of racing to figure it out. Formula 1, Le Mans prototypes, winning GT cars – all of ‘em mount the powerplant towards the middle of the chassis. Why? Because when a car’s weight is balanced between the axles, the tires and suspension can do their job more effectively. The mid-engine solution has worked wonders in competition, and as such, it’s trickled down to street cars as well. Now, it’s looking like Jaguar might be the latest to offer a mid-engine performance machine, and although it’s not yet confirmed, the cat badge could very well mix it up with a new halo mid-engine supercar sometime relatively soon.

The idea for such a project can be traced back to none other than legendary car designer Ian Callum, the current head of design at Jaguar. Callum is highly respected throughout the industry given his brain is behind some of the most sensuous automotive designs of the past several decades, with just a few entries on his resume including the Jaguar C-X75 and XK, the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish, and the Nissan R390.

Road & Track recently got a chance to speak with Callum at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, and during the interview, he dropped a few tantalizing hints that Jag could indeed be working on a new mid-engine supercar.

While a proposition like that is still very much up to us to fill in the details, it’s nonetheless an all-around exciting idea. But what would such a vehicle bring to the table? Read on for the details.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar F-Pace Designer Edition

Automakers have always put particular importance on charity auctions. Not only is it good publicity for the brand, it also provides these companies with opportunities to make some form of contribution for the benefit of others. At one point or another, a car brand has gone the charity auction route to help raise money and awareness for a cause, and the latest to do so is Jaguar, which presented a unique F-Pace SUV that ultimately raised £102,500 ($127,920) at the annual Ben Ball in the U.K.

The SUV is officially known as the F-Pace Designer Edition, a title it was given because of the particular involvement of Jaguar’s famous head designer Ian Callum. It could as well have been called the F-Pace Ian Callum Edition too because, according to Jag, Callum himself was responsible for all of its bespoke appointments, which covers certain sections of its exterior and interior.

Seeing as how well-dressed the standard F-Pace already is, the Designer Edition is a next-level upgrade that adds extra splashes of shine into the SUV’s overall make-up. The fact that it’s also based on the range-topping F-Pace S variant means that it not only looks the part of a special edition SUV, it also performs like one.

The one-off F-Pace Designer’s Edition fetched a pretty impressive price at the Ben Ball auction given that the F-Pace S comes with a starting price of $57,700. Sadly, Jaguar has no plans to build any more F-Pace Design Editions after the one that was auctioned off at the Ben Ball. Those who got priced out at the auction can take comfort though since Jaguar appears to still have units of the F-Pace First Edition available in the U.K. That’s a good alternative, as are the myriad of options and accessories that the automaker is offering for the SUV in the first place.

Jaguar is a great automaker, but it hasn’t been without turbulence in its past. Somewhere along the way, it lost the spirit and drive that it once had, but redeemed itself when in launched the F-Type back in 2013. Come 2016, and Jaguar has shown off its I-Pace Concept – an SUV that is loosely based on the F-Type but carries along two electric motors and a battery as its primary source of motivation. This all-electric SUV will mark Jaguar’s entry into the small but growing market of cars that don’t require dino juice to get rolling. Jaguar has also announced that its Special Vehicle Operations division will produce an electric vehicle with an SVR badge – yet another first. Rumors have been circling that this will be a sports car, but if SVO really wants to dip into the electric pot, it will have an excellent canvass for its first model: The 2018 I-Pace. The SVR version will naturally be more aggressive on the outside, will feature some unique and race-inspired features inside, and will come with a decent power improvement over the standard I-Pace. And, since the I-Pace is slated to enter the market for 2018, the I-Pace SVR could hit make its debut before the turn of the decade.

There’s also a hidden benefit to using the I-Pace as the canvass for the first SVR-badged electric vehicle. First, the brand can save heavily on the development costs up front by focusing on upgrading the powertrain and making other minor modifications to the I-Pace SUV. Then, once the high-performance SUV is perfected, it can then focus on building its all-electric sports car that can boast the same juiced up powertrain as the I-Pace SVR.

As such, we’ve created a rendering what the I-Pace SVR could look like. So let’s take a good look at the rendering and speculate a little on what SVR will do to improve on the future I-Pace electric SUV.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar Exec Shuts Door On Brand Developing Fuel Cell Vehicles

Jaguar may be fully invested in the development of electric vehicles, but that doesn’t mean it’s embracing other low-emissions vehicles. Jaguar Land Rover technical director Wolfgang Ziebart made that point very clear at the Los Angeles Auto Show when he outright dismissed hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles. In his own words, Ziebart called FCVs “complete nonsense,” in large part because of their poor efficiency relative to battery electric vehicles.

At the heart of Ziebart’s disdain for FCVs is the well-to-wheel relationship from the energy source to the vehicle. According to Jaguar’s point man in the development of the I-Pace EV SUV, the whole process of producing hydrogen and them compressing and cooling them for use in a fuel cell vehicle is a lot less efficient compared to outrightly using electric energy. “You “You end up with a well to wheel efficiency of roughly 30 percent for hydrogen, as opposed to more or less well to wheel 70 percent efficiency for a battery electric vehicle,” Ziebart explained. “So the efficiency of putting the electric energy directly into a battery is about twice as high as the efficiency of producing and using hydrogen.”

To be fair, Ziebart did concede that there’s a place for hydrogen-powered vehicles if somebody finds a way to improve the whole process of improving the infrastructure for hydrogen production, including producing and distributing the energy without compromising its efficiency. Electric energy just makes more sense at this point, and for what it’s worth, Ziebart’s comments is all part of continued discussions among people within the industry of the short- and long-term benefits of fuel cell technology.

At the very least, Ziebart’s position on the issue is backed by a recent study by scientists at Stanford University and the Technical University of Munich that was published in the journal Energy. According to the study, battery electric vehicles offer a more affordable way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions than cars powered by hydrogen, citing lower costs and higher energy efficiency as the main reasons for the advantage.

Jaguar entered a new era in 2013, when it launched the F-Type and revived the sporty and innovative spirit it had lost in recent decades. The British company made another step into the future in 2015, when the F-Pace became the first SUV to wear the iconic “Cat” logo. Come 2016 and Jaguar is ready to take a new step into the future, this time with an all-electric vehicle. It’s called the I-Pace, it’s only a concept for now, but will become a production model for the 2018 model year.

Unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the I-Pace is loosely based on the F-Pace styling-wise, but ditches Jaguar’s already familiar four-cylinder, V-6, and V-8 powerplants for a pair of electric motors and a battery pack. The I-Pace will become Jaguar’s first-ever electric vehicle when it hits public roads and will essentially bring to fruition the electrification process that the company began back in 2010 with the C-X75 concept.

The I-Pace was created and developed by Ian Callum, Jaguar’s design director and the man who has previously penned cars such as the Aston Martin DB7 and DB9, Jaguar XK, XF, and XJ, as well as the F-Type sports car. Callum also designed the Ford RS200 and Nissan R390 race cars.

Described as a smart five-seater that’s “a performance car, a family car, and an SUV all in one,” the I-Pace grants Jaguar entry to the electric car segment, and if performance figures are any indication, the popular Tesla Model X will finally get a worthy competitor.

Updated 03/15/2017: Jaguar dropped a series of new images showing the I-Pace concept in action on the streets of London. Also the company confirmed that the I-Pace will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds and will have a driving range of about 500 kilometers.
