There will be plenty of reasons to celebrate on the Jaguar stand at the New York Auto Show, this year. The maker will not only mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of its classic E-Type sports car but will also roll out a significant update of its current midsize “saloon car,” the XF.
Putting a premium on performance, the Brits will have several new muscle cars to unveil, as well, including both the XFR and the 186 mph XKR-S
With the new offerings, “Jaguar is at full strength,” contends the maker’s design chief Ian Callum – though there remain plenty of rumblings that even more product is in the works, notably a downsized “entry luxury” sedan that will eventually replace the largely unloved X-Type.
The maker has received a far more positive response to its sporty XF, which helped reframe the design equation for Jaguar when it made its debut several years back.
