Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
There's little new for the 2015 Jaguar XK lineup. The limited edition XKR-S GT is gone, but otherwise there's nothing new, since the car is on its last model year in its current iteration. Keep your eyes open for an all-new XK in the next year or so.
For 2014, Jaguar has unveiled a very-limited-production (only 25 cars in the U.S and 5 in Canada) XKR-S GT. This track-ready and street-legal machine is quicker than any other cat in the XK pride, and its $175K price tag ensures its exclusivity.
For 2013, the Jaguar XK series sees changes mostly in the form of trim and feature content. New 20-inch wheels replace last year's 19s, while XK Touring trim is offered. The limited production XKR-S returns with 100 coupes and 100 convertibles available for U.S. market.
For 2012, the Jaguar XK series adds a new 550-horsepower XKR-S variant to the top of the roster. Changes to the base XK and sporty XKR include a restyled front end with revised headlights and LED running lights. Similarly, the interior receives a slight refresh, with upgraded materials and a rear backup camera as standard on every trim level.
For 2010, the Jaguar XK receives wide-ranging improvements including brand new engine choices, an adaptive suspension and subtle exterior tweaks. The XK also offers JaguarDrive Selector, previously introduced on the XF Sedan, a rotary transmission shift knob that rises from the center console on startup.
Ultimate Black Metallic paint, Front Park Control and power-folding side mirrors are now standard equipment, as are the previously-optional 525-watt Premium Surround Sound System, SIRIUS, USB and iPod connectivity and air-quality-sensing auto-recirculation climate control. New Satin American Walnut veneers are available, Alcon brakes now cost extra on re-trimmed Portfolio editions and a Dynamic Handling Package (suspension, brake and wheel upgrades) is now optional.
The previous generation XK was Jaguar's best-selling sports model ever. The challenge for the 2007 XK is to better that success while enhancing the image of the Jaguar brand and its less exotic sedans. That task gets tougher as the high-zoot sports car competition gets relentlessly better, but we believe the XK is up to it.
Making a beautiful car is one thing. Making a powerful car is another. But combining the two and creating an icon? That's the rare magic Jaguar crafted with its XK sport coupe and convertible.
Both elegant and menacing, the 2015 Jaguar XK, XKR and XKR-S blend clean, simple and powerful design with the horsepower and performance to keep the promise. Packed with luxury and technology, there's no doubt you're behind the wheel of a car that competes in the same rarified air as others like the BMW 640i, or even the Porsche 911. If it strikes a chord with you, this is your last chance to act, as Jaguar will be discontinuing the XK after the current model year to make room for an all-new XK.

"I have owned this car for two trouble free years. My only complaint is that the local Dealer states that my car, which has under 10,000 miles, is only now valued at $55,000 and Kbb value today is $57,805. I would very interested if some one could tell me even in this soft market how such a great car has lost 50% of it's value. If Jaguar's can't hold a respectable value over such a short period of time it will sadly be my last."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 40,000overall rating 8 of 10rating details
Pros: "Looks great, lots of fun, lots of admiring glances"
Cons: "only seats 2 but then who else will you carry?"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"2007 model bought with 100K warranty. Car had 12,000 miles on it in 2009 when bought. Great "throat" on the car when accelerating. Great feel on the road, hugs well on turns. Pinafarina design turns plenty of heads. Car jockey valets always keep it in front. Be prepared to tip well!! No problems mechanically, basically a two-seater although there really are two back seats - only will hold a grocery bag in each. I love this car!"

"I have the 2007 XKR coupe, it took quite a while to get delivered but it's worth the wait! The performance is great, looks beautiful, much better brand than all my MBZ's Bluetooth is weak and premium stereo needs a boost, but nothing worth changing"
