Last year, Jaguar showcased the XE, a mid-sized sports sedan that will utilize the company’s new aluminum architecture. Now Jaguar has announced that the latest addition to the sedan family will be unveiled in London on September 8, 2014.
According to Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross, the XE will utilize Jaguar’s competencies of precise handling and a high-quality ride into one balanced luxurious package. “The XE is the culmination of everything the company has learned over the years. We are on target to deliver a vehicle that dynamically outperforms our rivals.”
While the majority of information on the XE is still being held close to the chest, some information has been released: the XE will boast the segment’s first aluminum monocoque platform, an integral link rear suspension, the F-Type’s double-wishbone front suspension, the latest generation of electric power-assisted steering, and surface progress control – the latter a new feature aiding in RWD traction.
This preview is the first in a series of four that will describe the XE’s technical, engineering and design features. Stay tuned with Motrolix for upcoming news on Jaguar’s all-new sports sedan.
