The top of the line Jaguar XE S rewards drivers with the responsiveness and refinement of its supercharged 3.0 liter V6 engine. Generating 340PS and 450Nm of torque, this high-revving engine is linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift controls, giving the driver immediate access to the vehicle’s incredible reserves of power. Accelerating to 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds, XE S has an electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph.
“Our mission was to create an exciting and dynamic design clearly reflecting the XE’s positioning as a serious drivers’ car,” Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design.
The XE S models large front air intakes, chrome side vents, discreet rear spoiler and optional 20-inch forged alloy wheels hint at the car’s performance potential.
XE S is the stiffest and most aerodynamic Jaguar saloon ever built. Its beautiful, streamlined shape has the lowest drag coefficient of any Jaguar yet (0.26 Cd). It is also the first Jaguar to be equipped with electric power steering, tuned for maximum responsiveness and low energy consumption. The new XE range has the most sophisticated chassis of any vehicle in its class and will set the benchmarks for ride and handling: it is a true driver’s car.
Jaguar is more experienced in the use of aluminum construction than any other vehicle manufacturer. The unrivaled expertise in working with this lightweight material has culminated in the revolutionary body structure of the new XE. It is the first model designed around Jaguars all-new modular architecture and is the only car in its class to use an aluminum monocoque.
The XE is one of the most cost efficient cars in its class, with the range offering one of the most fuel efficient Jaguar cars ever made. As well as exceptional fuel efficiency, the XE’s Ingenious diesel engines also achieve a remarkable 21,000 miles or two years between services. From the very beginning, key components were designed to be easily accessible to minimize scheduled maintenance and repair costs. This helps XE in achieving highly competitive insurance group ratings.
XE will complete the Jaguar saloon car range, sitting below XF and XJ models and goes on sale from 2015. XE prices start at £27,000, with the high-performance XE S model at the top of the range.
Full details of the entire XE range will be announced at the Paris Motorshow in October.
