Jul 15 2014 12:15 PM | Jaguar News
Jaguar has announced September 8th as the date they will reveal the production version of the 2016 XE compact sedan. Along with the date, the British automaker has dropped a few more hints for their new compact luxury sedan.

The XE's suspension is comprised of a front suspension based on the design used in the F-Type, a new integral link rear suspension, and a electric power steering system which is said to deliver the "renowned Jaguar feel and response.”

Jaguar also talked about the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) which is said to enable smooth launches on slippery surfaces on rear-drive models. ASPC works like a low-speed cruise control system to get the vehicle moving.

Rumorpile: XK Coupe To Transition Into The XJ Coupe

Mar 30 2014 09:35 AM | Jaguar News
During this summer, Jaguar will quietly say good-bye to the XK Coupe and Convertible. The company says poor sales and the introduction of the F-Type has made the company decide the XK needs to hit the road. That doesn't mean Jaguar isn't working on a replacement though.

The new coupe, wearing the XJ nameplate, will feature certain design cues from the F-Type such as flowing lines, muscular rear wheel arches, and wraparound taillights. But the coupe will have a few of its own touches like an oversized grille and horizontal headlights.
 
The new coupe...

It has been a long time coming, but it happened this week. A spy photographer got the first shots of Jaguar's new XS compact sedan in what appears to be its production ready design this week.

Around back, the XS looks to have a shorter decklid.
 
Powertrains are expected to be 2.0L Turbocharged four and 3.0L Supercharged six for the U.S. All-wheel drive is expected, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
