So does Jaguar open up the range with a bang and is this a vehicle that you should be particularly excited for?.
A look into adjustments and potential rivals for the XE S
So the big news with this car in our opinion is of course the updated engine. So to start of the excitement, we see that Jaguar have included the fitting of a V6,Supercharged engine carrying a capacity of three litres. This is the same engine that is being carried over from the firms current F Type model. Developing 336 horse power and paired up with a six speed,manual gearbox, the car is capable of hitting a top speed of 155 miles per hour. The dampers on the vehicle have also received a bit of work making the car more smooth than ever before, part of this can also be contributed to the suspension system in place. The car has been revealed receiving a white paint option and more colours could potentially become available too.
As far as receiving some tough competition when it goes on sale, the XE S will look to contend with the likes of the BMW M3 and the latest range of Mercedes C Class could also be considered to be a top contender challenging the XE S.
How much will the new XE S sell for?
Jaguar have announced that their brand new XE S will become available to purchase from Jaguar dealerships this April and it will sell with a listing price of £44,870. In our opinion, we would say that this is definitely a car that you should be excited for this year and it could be one of the biggest sellers that Jaguar-Land Rover put on sale in 2015.
