2022 Jaguar F-Type convertible

INDIANAPOLIS — Change has come to the British Empire. We knew it was inevitable, but is sad nonetheless.  It is hard to replace an icon that’s beloved by millions across the realm.  The next one will be a worthy successor, but will neither sound nor drive the same.  It’s a different world.  Yep, Jaguar is going electric by mid-decade and the F-Type will soon join the great beyond.  But, let’s have one more go at it before it’s gone.

Jaguar’s F-Pace R-Dynamic S — Dynamic? Yes!

By David Boldt

(June 6, 2022) It was in 1922 that what we now know as Jaguar was formed as the Swallow Sidecar Company, building motorcycle sidecars before offering bodies for passenger cars and, not too long after, the whole automotive shebang as S.S. Cars. Given that 2022, on some level, is Jaguar’s centennial, I reference Swallow because, for founder William Lyons, today’s all-consuming focus on the SUV — begun by Jaguar with the belated intro of its F-Pace compact crossover in 2015 — would be hard to, uh…swallow.

2019 Jaguar I-Pace

PHOENIX — Until now, if you wanted a luxury electric crossover utility vehicle, your choice was limited to one: Tesla Model X. However, Jaguar has started delivery of its luxury crossover EV, the I-Pace, and Audi has unveiled its e-tron SUV. Others like Porsche are close behind. The I-Pace is sleek, sharp looking five-passenger crossover that’s powered by a 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that powers a pair of electric motors.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake — A very sexy wagon

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Sportbrake in European parlance means luxury wagon and the mid-sized Jaguar XF has a version for 2018 that enhances the sex appeal of the sedan, but sacrifices none of the sedan's outstanding driving traits while adding a 32-cubic-foot cargo area under the hatch. Meet the Jaguar XF Sportbrake — practical, stimulating and fun.

Jaguar F-Type SVR — Stylish and quick

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

We believe the Jaguar F-Type coupe and roadster will go down as one of the most distinctive styling exercises of the decade. The sports car is strikingly beautiful from all angles, a styling marvel and a true work of automotive sculpture. It features an athletic stance sitting low with muscular front fenders and rear haunches, an oversized front grille, and aggressive air intakes. Its beauty draws stares.

Jaguar F-Pace — A crossover worthy of praise

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

We remember sitting at a Porsche event back in the late '90s listening to representatives of the iconic German sports car company discussing the possibility of building a sport utility vehicle. We were aghast at the revelation. What is our topsy-turvy automotive world coming to when the maker of the lauded 911 was even discussing an SUV?

Jaguar XE — Sports sedan perfection

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Jaguar's last attempt at a small luxury sedan was not a successful one. The forgettable 2002-2008 Jaguar X-Type, built under Ford's ownership on a second-generation European Ford platform, felt more like a gussied up Ford than an entry-level Jaguar. Granted, Ford had improved the brand's reliability by that time, but was sacrificing exclusiveness for increased sales.

2017 Jaguar F-PACE

ASPEN, Col. — There’s an old saying that when you’re the last one to arrive at the party, you better be wearing the prettiest dress. As one of the last automakers without an SUV in its lineup, Jaguar called on design director Ian Callum to deliver on this task. And so, the legendary British marque adds the all-new F-PACE to its portfolio.

Jaguar XJR — Luxury mixed with performance

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

In a perfect world, the 2016 Jaguar XJR high-performance sedan might just be the perfect car. It offers a wonderful blend of style inside and out, a luxury ambiance that is hard to equal at any price, the latest in information and safety technology, room for four discerning passengers, and the type of silky, powerful V-8 performance that will bring a smile to the face of even the most sullen person.

Jaguar XF — A remarkable remake

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

When you start contemplating a mid-sized luxury sedan purchase your first inclination may be to test drive German brands such as the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes E-Class. All are certainly worthy of consideration. But we think — after spending several weeks and hundreds of miles behind the wheel of an all-new 2016 Jaguar XF — that you would be remiss not to also seriously consider the English-built car.
