US pricing for Jaguar's brand-new 2017 XE and the second-generation of their larger XF sedan are no longer a mystery.
The British firm's answer to the German trio of Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the new XE sedan, will arrive in US showrooms in spring of 2016 as a 2017 model, available with three engine choices, including a diesel.
The range kicks off with the XE 2.5t powered by a 240hp turbocharged four-pot priced from $34,900, not including delivery fees at $995 (*), which is slightly more than the 180hp BMW 320i ($33,150) but notably less than the 240hp 328i ($38,350), not counting for any equipment differences.
For more power, you'll have to go for the XE 35t that gets a 340hp supercharged V6 and is priced from $41,700, while if you prefer fuel economy over performance, there's the diesel-powered 20d with a 180hp 2.0L four that starts from $36,400. All wheel drive will be available on 20d and 35t models at an as of yet, undisclosed price.
Meanwhile, Jaguar will launch its new 2016 XF sedan later this year, with the good news here being that it's priced as much as nine percent less than the previous generation model with the entry-level V6.
As such, the new 2016 XF 35t with a 340hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 starts from $51,900 (not including a $995 delivery fee), which is slightly more than the now discontinued 2.0-liter turbo four version of the 2015 XF ($50,175), but $5,275 less than the 2015 XF 3.0 V6. There's also an all-new derivative, the 380hp 3.0L supercharged V6 XF S model with added features that starts at $62,700.
Jaguar said that it would also add a diesel powered derivative to the range next year and which will bring the entry price for an XF to "under $50,000".
Both the 2017 XE and 2016 XF will come with Jaguar's new EliteCare program that includes a 5 year or 60,000 mile (whichever comes first) warranty, free scheduled maintenance, and roadside assistance.
