2013 Jaguar XK-Series

New For 2013

The suspension tuning from the XKR-S is now available as an option for all models. Twenty-inch wheels are now standard.

Overview

The XK is now the oldest vehicle in the Jaguar line and is certainly the most traditional-looking—the styling harks back to the 1998 XK8. Still, the car hardly feels like a stodgy old-timer. Its sonorous 5.0-liter V-8s, regardless of power output, respond instantly to the tap of the gas pedal. The interior, restyled a few years ago, closely follows the modern aesthetic of the XF and the XJ. The XK was the last Jag to abandon the old-school J-gate shifter for a rotary shifter. Subtle design tweaks have made the XK more aggressive-looking without robbing it of its clean elegance. The XKR-S, new for 2012, is the most powerful Jaguar you can buy, and it handily outguns the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo S. This year, its aggressive suspension tuning trickles down to other XKs in the form of an option package. But the XK, regardless of trim, is not as sharp as the best sports cars and, in convertible form, doesn’t always feel rigid enough. The XK faces new internal competition from the smaller, cheaper, more sporting F-type that joins the lineup in the spring. Even so, the XK’s blend of comfort and capability should still please many buyers.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; and tire-pressure monitoring are standard.

2014 Jaguar XK RS GT Front Right Side View
Jaguar's track-oriented 2014 XKR-S GT is making its debut at the New York auto show, and the automaker has announced pricing, as well. The limited-edition XKR-S GT coupe will start at $174,895 when it goes on sale in August.
2012 Jaguar XKR Convertible Profile
The next-generation Jaguar XK coupe and convertible will grow in size and move upmarket, according to Autocar. The move is designed to put more distance between the current two-plus-two and Jaguar's upcoming two-seat F-Type roadster and coupe.
2014 Jaguar F Type Rear Three Quarter
At long last, the embargo has lifted, and we can finally show you the 2014 Jaguar F-Type in all of its (now official) glory.
2013 Jaguar XK Portfolio Front Three Quarter
The  Jaguar XK coupe and convertible gain a new Touring model for the 2013 model year, lowering the lineup’s base price by more than $5000 compared to the regular XK models. The new Touring, priced at $79,875 as a coupe and $85,875 as a convertible, includes a backup camera, keyless entry, power-folding mirrors, an Aero Pack, and heated seats. Though the Jaguar XK won’t receive the new supercharged V-6 (or the turbocharged I-4) like the new XF and XJ, there are a few updates to the 2013 model year car.
Jaguar F Type R Prototype Side View
Our spy photographers caught the Jaguar F-Type testing at the 'Ring, but this doesn't appear to be the supercharged V-6 powered roadster; this may be the brawnier F-Type R V-8. The roadster wasn't alone though, because a revised XKR-S was also caught in the act.

Summary
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 XK convertible vehicles manufactured October 1, 2010, through August 1, 2013. The switch in the overhead roof console also activates the power operated windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing. The switch does not move downward to close the windows. Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."
Consequences
The power windows may inadvertently be activated and pinch or injure an arm or finger.
Remedy
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the overhead roof console, free of charge. The recall began on October 1, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's recall number is J030.
