2014 Jaguar F-type Roadster

Jan 18th
What’s the letter “S” worth? $1K? $5K? $10K? When it comes to the 2014 Jaguar F-type V-6 roadster, the amount is $12K. Ringing in at $81,925, the 2014 Jaguar F-type S roadster neatly splits the $69,925 “base” V-6 model and the mighty $92,925, 495-hp V-8 S. But there’s more to this story than just the 19th letter of the alphabet.…
2014 Jaguar XJR

Dec 30th
Jaguar is busy honing its identity. Its portfolio is bursting with high-tech mills and sales are up, but as volumes approaching those of its competitors will take time to develop, image is a quicker build. And Jaguar wants to be seen as a full-fledged equal to the German luxury brands. Fortunately for us, the Germans all have performance divisions, and…
2015 Jaguar F-type Coupe

Dec 22nd
Now that Jaguar’s F-type fleet includes six distinct models, picking one that best suits your fancy can be daunting. The coupes excel in aesthetics and practicality, the convertibles are more fun. Venturing beyond that body-style fork, this test of a V-6 S coupe should assist your smart purchase decision.The $77,925 S coupe lives at the sensible end of the price…
2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Dec 20th
A decade or so ago, walking into the C/D offices and casually asking the staff how we felt about the emerging luxury- and/or performance-crossover segment would have elicited a collective sigh. For enthusiasts who grew up in an era when BMWs, Porsches, and—to the point here—Jaguars occupied rarefied space in the automotive landscape, the risk of tainting a storied bloodline…
2012 Jaguar XKR / XKR-S Convertible

Dec 4th
Every car in America can find its way to 75 mph on a road. (Well, almost.) But 175 mph? Outside of being strapped to a rocket, a car must have sufficient power, optimized aerodynamics, and at least a mile of straightaway free of heaves, dips, potholes, and wavering Winnebagos. Although such a stretch in America may be tough to find…
2015 Jaguar F-type R

Nov 29th
“No! It is not a car for a dentist’s wife!” came my Brit companion’s incredulous response. I was sitting lakeside several years back, having a few beers with some visiting Englishmen, when the topic of the Jaguar XK came up. I might have been overstating my position on the car (thank you, beer), but the thrust of the whole dentist’s-wife…
2016 Jaguar XF

Nov 26th
When this Jaguar XF arrives in the States next year, no one will ask, “Is that the new Jag?” But the 2016 XF is entirely new, it just doesn’t look as new as it is. When the XF first debuted in late 2007, it broke Jaguar sedans away from the old-world aesthetic they’d been mining since the 1960s. Gone were…
2011 Jaguar  XJ / XJL Supercharged And XJ  / XJL Supersport

Nov 26th
Sometimes it’s best to begin at the end—in this case, at the XJ’s tail end, where the Jaguar name appears exactly nowhere and those hockey-stick taillights flash a rude middle digit at a lifetime of traditional Jag styling cues. Apply the brakes, and three LED strips illuminate in each taillight, intentionally mimicking the red lacerations that a torqued-off alley cat…
2017 Jaguar XE

Nov 24th
Jon Darlington, engineering manager for the Jaguar XE, describes Tata Motors as the perfect parent, always willing to give its children a loan yet never so meddlesome as to dictate how the money is spent. The F-type may have been a rash, indulgent way to spend dad’s money, but it became the brand’s modern icon. Now, Jaguar appears focused on…
2016 Jaguar XJ / XJL

Nov 18th
Eight inches of blue screen glowed from the 2016 Jaguar XJL Portfolio V-6 AWD’s center stack. Instead of showing us navigation, radio, climate, or phone information, Jaguar’s all-new touchscreen infotainment system, dubbed InControl Touch Pro, did its best impression of a 1960s British-car electrical component by simply not showing up for work. Or maybe it was running Windows 3.1. Cycling…
2016 Jaguar F-type Coupe

Nov 13th
One of these days our Save the Manuals campaign will arrive at its inevitable end. Even if the ol’ stick shift wins a battle every now and then, newer, smoother, and faster transmission technology is dominating the war. We’ll be devastated to concede victory, but our work as the enthusiasts’ advocate won’t end with manual transmissions. That’s because there’s another…
2013 Jaguar XF

Nov 11th
Under Tata, Jaguar is getting the attention it was denied during its stint as furniture in Ford’s living room. In the auto industry, attentiveness is fairly easily quantified, and Tata’s doting rings in at $2 billion. We’re told that’s the amount the Indian industrial conglomerate has earmarked for Jaguar R&D for each of the next five years. For the XF,…
