2013 Jaguar Lineup Gains New Engines, All-Wheel Drive

  • The 2013 Jaguar lineup includes several changes
  • XF and XJ sedans add available AWD
  • XK models boast a new base-level model

Jaguar is making several revisions to its lineup for 2013. According to the automaker, its XF and XJ sedans will add new engines and available all-wheel drive for the new model year, while the two-door XK will offer a new trim level with a reduced base price.

According to Jaguar, the midsize XF sedan–previously only available with a 380-horsepower 5.0-liter V8–will gain two new engines for 2013. The first, a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 240 hp, will be standard in the XF 2.0. That model will start at $47,850 including destination, or around $6,000 cheaper than last year’s base model. A 340-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 will also join the XF’s lineup for 2013 with a base price of $50,875 with shipping. Last year’s 5.0-liter V8 is gone, though Jaguar says the wild 510-hp XFR will stay in the sedan’s lineup.

The full-size XJ luxury sedan also receives a new engine for 2013. According to Jaguar, base-level XJ models will include the same 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V6 as the midsize XF, leading to a new starting price of $74,075 including destination. But unlike the XF, the larger XJ will keep all of its V8 powertrains. That means the 385-hp 5.0-liter will return for 2013, as will supercharged motors in the sporty XJ Supercharged and raucous XJ Supersport. An ultra-luxurious new model, dubbed the “XJL Ultimate,” will also be available for 2013 in limited numbers with an eye-popping base price of $155,875 including destination.

In addition to an updated powertrain lineup, Jaguar’s sedans will offer another major revision for 2013: available all-wheel drive. Offered only with the supercharged V6, all-wheel drive will be available for $3,000 extra on the XF, or $3,500 on top of the XJ’s base price. That helps Jaguar stay competitive with rivals like Audi, BMW and Mercedes, each of which have offered all-wheel drive on sedan models for several years.

Jaguar is also updating its sporty XK for the new model year. The 2013 Jaguar XK will add a new “Touring” model, which will include leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, heated front seats and a premium sound system. According to Jaguar, buyers will only have to choose exterior and interior colors for the new model, which starts at $79,875 including destination for a coupe or $85,875 with shipping for a convertible. That makes Touring models around $5,500 less expensive than last year’s base-level XK models, providing added value for shoppers interested in the ageing models.

What it means to you: Jaguar’s new engines will boost fuel economy for 2013, and its newly available all-wheel drive will make its models more accessible to buyers in snowy northern climates.
