Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
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 XKR receives wide-ranging improvements including a new engine and transmission, heated and cooled 16-way adjustable seats and subtle exterior tweaks. The XKR also offers JaguarDrive Selector, previously introduced on the XF Sedan, a rotary transmission shift knob that rises from the center console on startup.
Outside, the 2009 Jaguar XK gets a new Ultimate Black Metallic paint option, a Front Park Control system and power-folding side mirrors. The inside updates make the previously-optional 525-watt Premium Surround Sound System standard equipment, add SIRIUS Satellite Radio, a USB port, air-quality sensing auto-recirculation for the climate control and make Satin American Walnut veneers available.
The art of combining elegance with a performance pedigree is a talent that still eludes many auto manufacturers. At Jaguar, however, they have perfected the formula. It isn't often that a luxury performance car can be both gorgeous and menacing, but that's exactly what the 2014 Jaguar XK, XKR, XKR-S – and the limited edition XKR-S GT – are. Beyond its good looks in both coupe and convertible form, the XK impresses with a range of powerful engines, suspension that is both competent and forgiving, and enough luxury and convenience features to make even the most tech-savvy buyer cry uncle. Yet, for all this goodness, the 2014 Jaguar XK remains relatively attainable, with price on par with such luxury greats as the BMW 640i, Porsche 911 and Cadillac CTS-V.
