Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
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.
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.

"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."

"This car is my 2nd. Jauguar purchsed since 2004. My first was an '04 XJR. This car has more features, better brakes & looks! I have owned this car for 1 month now & can't stop driving it! I get lots of looks & compliments! My wife gets jeleaous due to all the attention I get! I chose this car over a Mercedes S-600. I am glad I made this choice. This is a great car for the value....also great fuel economy & ride characteristics as well. Good job Jaguar!"

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 38,500overall rating 8 of 10rating details
Pros: "looks, local-driving comfort and fun"
Cons: "bluetooth for phone, not a long-range cruiser"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This car has the looks (almost annoying sometimes with the people that want to talk to you :-) )the performance and for the 5 years old it is...reliability with no repairs major or minor that I've always looked for. The only thing not good is the bluetooth for the cell phone. It was iffy at best all along (the Service mgr told me admittedly that this was Jaguar's weakest point) and failed about 6 months ago completely. With the laws that may change on cellphones in cars, I left it out. But that is NOTHING compared to the overall car which I will never regret buying. Love it!"
