2016 Jaguar XEIf you’ve been following the news, you know that there’s a new Jaguar car—or four—in the works, and we want to give our drivers an update on the upcoming 2016 Jaguar XE and what you can expect of it when it arrives in our new vehicle showroom at Heritage Jaguar of Freeport.

The All-New Jaguar XE

The mid-size sedan world is one of the most fiercely competitive, but it’s about to get a lot more contested, as a new Jaguar is on the prowl. The vehicle just recently debuted ahead of its official world premiere at Earls Court, London, and its sleek yet conservative design echoes the larger Jaguar XF, including an almost coupe-like rear end.

Of course, the Jaguar XE differentiates itself from its larger sibling in quite a few ways as well, with slimmer headlamps that are positioned closer to the ground for a more aggressive look, more prominent taillights, a front grille that is less angled, and a substantially different interior.

Jaguar design leader Ian Callum addressed the goal of the new model, saying “The cab-rearward proportions and tight packaging achieve [our new design goals] and give the XE the appearance of movement even when it’s standing still.”

New amenities will include:

  • Built-in heads-up display pioneered in military jets
  • A wide range of 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Torque vectoring by braking
  • Electric power-assisted steering
  • JaguarDrive Control with multiple driving modes
  • 8-inch color touchscreen display 

A new front suspension, an integral rear-link suspension, and an all-surface progress control system will help give you the utmost control over this new Jaguar car, and while we are still waiting for the specs for the engines in the American market, the UK models are rated starting at 161 hp and going all the way up to 335 hp with a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine. These models have both a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic gearbox available.
