What's New For 2018?
New on the 2018 Jaguar XE is an abundance of new driver aids as well as a more high-powered 4-cylinder engine option. Also, the S trim is all new and sits atop the line with its superb supercharged V6 engine. There is also a new Portfolio trim that will make a limited run for the model year and is loaded to the brim with infotainment features.
The 2018 Jaguar XE is only available as a luxury sport sedan.
There are a total of six trim levels available on the 2018 Jaguar XE. The base XE trim features the 25t (a 2.0-L 4-cylinder) engine, although you can opt for the 20t (a 2.0-L diesel) engine. The interior has simulated leather upholstery and an 8-inch LCD touchscreen display panel. The Premium trim gives you the option of a 4-cylinder or supercharged 3.0-L V6 engine and features an upgraded audio system. The Prestige and R-Sport also provide the choice between the gas- or diesel-powered 4-cylinder and the V6. The Prestige comes with real leather upholstery and keyless ignition and entry. The R-Sport features unique body trim, upgraded interior leather, and numerous standard driver aids. The S trim is quite similar to the R-Sport, but it only comes with AWD and the supercharged V6 engine. Its interior accents are crafted from stunning metal and aluminum, which enhance the sense of luxury. The limited Portfolio trim has many of the features found on the S and includes 3G WiFi connectivity, a 10-inch touchscreen panel, and front seats that are both ventilated and heated for additional comfort.
The new Jaguar XE is currently being hailed as one of the best performers in the luxury sedan segment. This is due in part to the inclusion of the supercharged 3.0-L V6 engine, which is able to get the R-Sport from 0 to 60 mph in roughly 5 seconds. Jaguar claims that the S can get there slightly faster, in just 4.9 seconds. Braking on the XE is smooth, and there is never a point when the pedal feels too firm or too squishy. Panic stops can easily be made in a safe distance without serious nosedive. With AWD equipped, this car is easy to handle in almost any situation. Feedback is sufficient and immediate. Overall, the XE delivers an ample amount of power while maintaining a feeling of fluidity regardless of speed or road condition.
If fuel efficiency is something that you require from a vehicle, the Jaguar XE delivers it with its diesel-powered engine options. The rear-wheel drive with a diesel-powered engine can nab you 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway while the AWD falls just short of that at 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway. The bare-bones minimum that you can get is, of course, on the V6 with AWD, which garners 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway. This is pretty good for a vehicle in its class.
The 2018 Jaguar XE puts in a good performance for the model year. The XE proves that you can be luxurious and high-powered without compromising on practicality and safety.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Jaguar XE invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Jaguar XE MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
