2016 Jaguar XE
While the Jaguar XE won’t arrive here at Jaguar Freeport until next year, already Jaguar is letting a bunch of information slip about the new entry level luxury sedan. The new Jaguar XE should make a splash when it finally enters the new vehicle inventory here at Jaguar Freeport thanks to distinctive styling, upscale features, and impressive performance. Continue to find out more about the forthcoming model.

What To Expect From The XE

With the new Jaguar XE, the British automaker is aiming to compete with the German luxury rivals like the BMKW 3-Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the American Cadillac ATS. The new XE will probably be the most affordable model in the Jaguar lineup, and it should also be one of the most efficient Jaguar models available.

From an engineering stand point, the XE is all new. It utilizes all aluminum construction to save weight and improve handling and efficiency. It uses a front engine and rear-wheel drive configuration, but all-wheel drive will be available when the car goes on sale next year. The version on sale in Europe now is currently rear-drive only.

Engine options will include the supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that’s familiar across the Jaguar lineup. This engine will crank out 340 hp in the new model, but a high-performance variant with more power will likely come later. A turbodiesel 2.0L four-cylinder will also be available with 180 hp – this will no doubt be the fuel economy leader in the lineup. Expect a 2.0L turbocharged gas engine to show up after the initial launch with an output figure around 240 hp.

The new Jaguar XE should also some with a long list of high class features both inside the cabin and out. Expect features like the latest Jaguar InControl infotainment system, available adaptive cruise control, automated parking, adaptive headlights, and much more to show up on the options list.
