LATEST XK NEWS

April 2014 : JAGUAR XK WINS ‘BEST PERFORMANCE CAR’ TITLE

XK WINS AWARDOn 23rd April 2014 the Jaguar XK picked up an award for best performance car at the Driver Power ceremony in Buckinghamshire after it was highly rated in the nation’s biggest motoring customer satisfaction survey.

Auto Express Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said: “The Jaguar XK has once again proved to be a big hit among owners for its performance. This is proof the Jaguar XK is an excellent all-rounder, and a great car to live with day-to-day.”

The XK achieved superb ratings in a number of critical categories. It was rated highly for build and ride quality, won plaudits for ease of driving, and was commended for its handling characteristics – all helping to cement the XK’s position as one of the nation’s favourite sports cars.

Driver Power – compiled by Auto Express and now in its 13th year - is a comprehensive survey with more than 46,000 UK car owners taking part.

 

March 2014: SAD NEWS AS JAGUAR ANNOUNCES THE XK IS TO BE DISCONTINUED

JAGUAR XK

After nearly 19 years of being on sale, Jaguar has sadly announced that the production of the Jaguar XK will shut down in Summer 2014 to make way for some new Jaguar models. In their announcement, Jaguar called this decision part of a “wider strategic vision and product planning cycle”. The main reason has obviously been reflected by the introduction of the F-Type Roadster and Coupe, which are now displayed in showrooms across the world.

Jaguar have said that a replacement for the XK isn’t totally out of the question, but is simply a low priority right now. According to Jaguar a 2+2 sports car is still desirable but not before the foundations are right with a range of new core models such as the new XE which will be built at JLR’s Solihull plant in a brand-new facility, and will go on sale in early 2015. A production version of the C-X17 SUV concept is also likely to follow, possibly in 2016, with replacements for the XF and XJ after that
