Jaguar has announced pricing for its 2013 XF, XJ and XK lines, marking the introduction of new engines, AWD, and a significant price drop for the entry-level XF.
Both the XF and XJ models get new engines for the 2013 model year. The most significant of those is the introduction of the same Ford-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder that powers the Range Rover Evoque. Capable of 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, the engine seems frail compared to the previous base-level 385-hp 5.0-liter V8, but it will ratchet down the price by a cool $7,000 for a $47,850 starting price.
Not only that, but it will also allow the car to shed weight, significantly boosting its fuel economy to 19/29 mpg city/highway – a level current Jags could never hope for.
The coming model year also marks a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 making its way under the hood – shared with the upcoming F-Type roadster. Priced at $50,875, the 340-hp six cylinder will slot into the middle with the $68,975 supercharged 5.0-liter V8 capping the range keeping its previous 510-hp rating. Jaguar will also offer all-wheel drive in the XF, but only in the V6 for an extra $3,000.
Next up, the flagship XJ get a mild $500 base price reduction also thanks to the F-Type’s supercharged V6, bringing it in at $74,075. All-wheel drive will also be available in the V6 XJ, though it comes at a $3,500 premium this time. The naturally-aspirated 385-hp V8 lives on, though only in the long wheelbase XJL Portfolio. A supercharged version of the V8 will also be available, as will the range-topping XJ Supersport which costs $113,475.
Finally, the XK coupe and convertible retain the same powertrain options but get a slight base price drop thanks to a new Touring model offered at $79,875 for the coupe and $85,875 for the convertible.
