The superb Jaguar XK was redesigned for 2007 and undergoes little change for 2008. Base prices for the coupe and convertible are unchanged, while the up-level XKR versions increase just $200. On the XKRs, a new Portfolio Package is available for $12,000 in either aluminum or walnut themes and include, among other goodies, 20-inch staggered-width wheels and tires with a new high-performance braking system, a 525-watt sound system with Bowers & Wilkins speakers, Sirius satellite radio, soft grain leather seating, and aluminum side vents.
Great performance; standard navigation system; Jaguar luxury and cachet.
Jaguar premiered this generation of the XK in 2007 with fresh styling and more powerful engines. Jaguar's traditional attention to luxury is present, with lots of leather, standard navigation, and a quiet ride, even in convertible form. The 2008 XKs are handsome vehicles, with styling reminiscent of Aston Martin, but with a base sticker price almost half that of the DB9.
