Just a few hours away from Elmhurst Jaguar, one of the world’s largest auto shows has released some impressive new vehicles that will be available soon. The Detroit Auto Show (aka: North American International Auto Show) is home to one of the biggest showrooms of both concept cars and vehicles already on the market, but the model that has our interest will not be let loose until 2016: the all-new Jaguar XE.
The XE is a highly anticipated new sports sedan design that has been in the works for a while, built to offer car-buyers an alternative in the market of smaller Cadillacs and BMWs. It’s lightweight, the base model coming in at about 3,250 pounds, and along with the supercharged 3.0-L V6 engine with 340-hp, the XE is not only a powerful vehicle, but one that gets great fuel economy.
The shape of the XE is a culmination of all the best designs from the many vehicles in the Jaguar line-up: very reminiscent of the XF and sportier like the Type-F, but still has 4-doors like the XJ. The driver’s seat is low like most sports car designs and the low roofline gives it a sleek and classy body.
The grill and headlights leave no doubt of a Jaguar exterior, and the luxury and class of the interior also earmark it as a British classic in the making. Top grade materials form the spacious interior, and multiple subtle storage compartments make the most of the space, leaving plenty of room for the passengers. The theme of the interiors is yours to design and the contrasting colors through the cabin make it unique and yet timeless.
The XE will also come with the latest in technology, including a new InControl infotainment system, and also joins the trend of the Heads Up display technology that projects pertinent information on the wind screen in front of the driver.
And while the U.S. will have to wait a while to see the new XE on the roads, we will be sure to release more details with you as they develop. But if you can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a powerful new Jaguar model, come down to our showroom today and take one for a spin!
