With a slightly re-worked front end, the 2010 Jaguar XK is a two-door, four-passenger luxury sports car available as a coupe or a convertible. The XK is the perfect showcase for Jaguars new 5.0L V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. The base XK produces 385 hp while the XKR adds a supercharger and power is pushed to a chest thumping 510 hp. 2010 Jaguar XK standard features include HID headlamps, daytime running lights, touchscreen navigation, Bluetooth, and keyless entry and start.Read more Read less
The superb Jaguar XK and XKR receive several notable changes for 2010 including two new 5.0-liter engines in place of last year's 4.2L V8s. In the base XK, a new 5.0L V8 makes 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, while the supercharged XKR makes 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. Exterior changes have also been made, including a more aggressive grille treatment in the XKR, LED taillights and an updated rear spoiler. Inside, the JaguarDrive rotary gear selector, first used on the XF, makes its XK debut and a number of previously optional features have now become standard. The XKR also gets a new active rear differential, which helps control power and sends torque to the wheel with the most grip rather than using braking force as in the 2009 model.
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 2010 XKs and XKRs are handsome vehicles, with styling reminiscent of Aston Martin, but with a base sticker price almost half that of the DB9.
