Jaguar XK models will be discontinued with the 2015 model year

Article by Christian A., on June 20, 2014

Due to the fact that the F-Type Convertible became quite popular and since November the coupe version arrived, Jaguar decided to discontinue the XK Coupe and XK Convertible models. In addition, Jaguar decided to focus its development budget on a new family of compacts that will use a new flexible aluminum architecture.

The XK models have been produced since 1996 and the current model went on sale in 2006. Currently, the XK Coupe is priced at $85,425 while the F-Type Coupe costs $65,925.

Still, one thing is for sure: the F-Type is not a replacement for the XK, as the XK is larger and offer more interior space for up to four persons. Jaguar is planning to offer the last XK models in the United States as high-performance R models.

The XKR Coupe will cost $108,425, while the XKR Convertible is priced from $114,425. The Jaguar F-Type is offered with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 340 hp, while the F-Type S carries the same engine with 380 hp.

Meanwhile, the F-Type V8 S is powered by the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 495 hp. The most powerful model is the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, which comes with the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that develops 550 hp.
