Choice of high performance or higher performance; improved reliability; luxury and sport in one car
The Jaguar XK can be had as either a coupe or convertible, which are nearly identical but for the triple-lined fabric roof of the convertible. Both models feature a 5.0L V8 engine that makes 385 bhp and 380 lb-ft of torque. This means the XK can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The XKR comes with a supercharged version of the same 5.0L, which is capable of 510 bhp and 461 lb-ft of torque.
In either case, the engine is mated to a 6-speed ZF transmission with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. The rear-wheel-drive XK or XKR can also be set in automatic mode using the JaguarDrive Selector, a silvery knob that rises from the center console when the ignition is fired up.
Handling and safety systems are comprehensive, and include standard ABS, electronic brake-force distribution, emergency brake assist and stability traction control. Tire pressure monitoring and front and side airbags for the front passengers are also included.
The XK's luxurious appointment start on the outside with rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated mirrors, automatic headlights with their own little wipers and a front and rear parking aid. Inside, 16-way leather seats are standard, as is the heated leather steering wheel. A 7-inch touch screen supplies all kinds of information, from the time to the sound system to the parking assist information. The 525-watt stereo has a 6-CD in-dash changer, plus MP3 capabilities and an interface for portable audio players. Bluetooth telephone connectivity is standard, too.
What isn't standard on the XK and XKR? Very little. Apart from a generous selection of 19-inch and 20-inch wheel styles, a heated windshield and HD radio can also be added for a couple hundred dollars each. The $2500 Advanced Technology Package adds adaptive cruise control.
After a fairly thorough refresh in 2010, the XK and XKR get few updates in 2011. There is a new "Black Pack" available for both the coupe and convertible XKR models, with more aerodynamic bodywork and 20-inch alloy wheels. It's available in three colors too: Polaris White, Ultimate Black and Stratus Grey.
The XKR175 limited-edition coupe celebrates the company's 75th anniversary. How limited? Only 175 will be produced, the car features a top speed of 174 mph, nearly 20 mph more than the base XK's 155 mph.
The XK covers both performance and luxury bases in the luxury coupe segment and is priced thousands cheaper than a Maserati Gran Turismo or Aston Martin Vantage. The XK coupe offers remarkable luxury in base trim and in top-of-the-line XKR trim, world-class power and performance.
