2006 Jaguar XK Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

(2005 model shown)

XK Series

With timelessly sleek styling and a sporty demeanor that harkens back to Jaguar's classic XK-E models from the early 1960s, the XK remains a rakish low-to-the-ground luxury coupe and convertible combo. The standard XK8 version offers a 294-horsepower 4.2-liter V-8 engine, while those with a true need for speed will savor the top XKR model and its 390-horsepower supercharged version of the 4.2 liter V-8, along with a variety of upgrades. An optional Handling Package is available that takes the R's version's performance up another notch. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, traction control, Dynamic Stability Control, and front-side airbags all come standard. A 1050-car run of the specially trimmed Victory Edition will be built to celebrate the XK's four championship wins in the North American Trans-Am Series. Otherwise, few changes are in store for 2006, as the XK awaits a major redesign for the 2007 model year.

Jaguar's flagship XKR coupe satisfies one schmo's twin longings for beauty and performance.

Love my ragtop XK. It certainly is more dependable than my previous car-1998 Bentley Azure. Not too common in Toronto. Lots in South Florida. I take down the top as much as I can. Using the wind deflector... + More »
