For those looking for a luxury sport coupe or convertible, odds are you’re looking for a serious vehicle than just a mere transportation. Well, if your ideals are among these; a beautifully styled interior, enthralling performance, well-equipped, and has the reliability of the nameplate, then there’s no doubt you’ll find the newest 2017 Jaguar XK exciting.

Jaguar hasn’t offered any changes under its hood, so we should we should expect the newest Jaguar XK to retain the 385-horsepower – producing 5.0L V8 engine. Those seeking an even more exhilarating performance can opt for the ludicrous 550-horsepower – generating 2017 Jaguar XKR-S model.

Handling and suspension upgrades are inevitable, although the nitty-gritties are yet to be made public. The ride quality is simply out-of-this-world regardless of the trim chosen. Throw in the comfortable and supportive seats and a sumptuous cabin packed with tons of standard technologies and you’re definitely living-the-American-dream in your Jaguar XK.

There are some flipsides, though, lest you think the 2017 Jaguar XK lacks any foibles. Those living in snowbelt regions will find it disappointing as the XK lacks an AWD option. InCar technology isn’t that advanced relative to the available competition, and the cabin can feel rather confining particularly in the XK Roadster.

There’re several competitors out there in case you’re not completely sold out on the 2017 Jaguar XK appeal. Some of these include the BMW 6 Series, Porsche 911 Turbo, Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, and Jaguar’s own F-Type. All of these rivals offer strong and capable engines, sophisticated and luxurious interior, and loads of character. But even so, we still think the Jaguar F-Type deserves your consideration.
