If there’s a theme or a through-line that explains the year Jaguar cars had in 2016, it could be summed up in two words: “fashionably late.” It’s the one thing that the three biggest stories of this year had in common, but it also has a lot to tell Andover drivers about the future of the brand and the kinds of cars we’ll be seeing more of at Jaguar Peabody.
2019 Jaguar I-PACE
We’ll begin at the end of the year with the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, where the public first saw the Jaguar I-PACE. There are other all-electric cars and SUVs. There’s not a single one of them that’s anything like this. Since an electric SUV doesn’t need an internal combustion engine — saving weight and space — the Jaguar design team was free to try some new things. What resulted is a beautiful concept that reimagines what an SUV can be.
2017 Jaguar XE
The 2017 Jaguar XE fills a long-standing gap in the company lineup, in the process reminding us how much has changed since we last saw an entry-level Jaguar vehicle. The wait was worth it. This car is a stroke of brilliance, with a thoughtful interior, a graceful sense of proportion, and an overall design on which not a single line or inch is wasted. It features trim-specific option packages, available all-wheel drive, and a driving experience that does the Jaguar name proud.
2017 Jaguar F-PACE
It’s only taken a couple of decades, but there’s finally a Jaguar SUV. The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE stands to redefine the brand. In many ways, it’s the logical conclusion of years’ worth of learning, design refinements, and a refusal to compromise. It shares a bit of its DNA with the Jaguar F-TYPE, but does it in a way that carves out a new and bold identity. No wonder it’s proven to be a huge success, racking up excellent sales and rave reviews while leaving many new Jaguar fans in its wake.
