The Jaguar XK series of grand Touring Coupes and Convertibles, which
received revised design details and features for 2012, enter the 2013
model year with a larger array of model choices. Led by the
limited-production, 186 mph XKR-S models, the 2013 Jaguar XK line adds
the new Touring Coupe and Convertible models that combine an Aero
Package with a set equipment level and a new price point for the model
Melding classic Jaguar design with lightweight yet highly rigid
aluminum construction and near-bespoke finishes and luxury, the 2013
XK models exemplify the Jaguar tradition of offering outstanding
performance, agility and value in the premium luxury category.
The XKR-S, the most powerful Jaguar road car ever offered, returns in
very limited numbers for 2013, with just 100 Coupes and 100
Convertibles available for the U.S. A 550hp version of the Jaguar
supercharged 5-liter V8 engine powers the XKR-S models.
Enhancing value and style, the 2013 XK and XKR models gain 20-inch
alloy wheels as standard, with no change in vehicle MSRP compared to
the 2012 models with 19-inch wheels. (The 19-inch wheels are standard
on the XK Touring models.) A new Portfolio Pack option brings a
distinctly custom flavor to the Jaguar XK and XKR, infusing Coupe and
Convertible models with an extra dash of opulence and some exclusive
features designed for this package.
The Dynamic Pack option, which was introduced for the 2012 XKR Coupe,
is now also available on the XKR Convertible. Adapting elements from
the XKR-S, the Dynamic Pack equips the XKR models with retuned
suspension for even greater handling agility, and in addition adds
aerodynamic enhancements and unlocks a higher top track speed of 174
The XK, like all Jaguar models, offers a wide selection of exterior
and interior finishes, and, for 2013, the Special Order color and trim
combinations no longer carry an extra charge. A Jaguar Designer's
Choice guide features recommended combinations. The vibrant Racing
paints and special color Convertible tops remain available at extra
New Portfolio Pack for XK and XKR
The 2013 XK Portfolio Pack applies the designer's custom touch,
offering five recommended exterior colors. Chrome mirror caps,
exclusive to the XK Portfolio Pack, and a chrome-mesh grille add
gleaming but elegantly restrained bright work. A choice of seven
colors for the XK Convertible's soft-top allows further
Inside, the XK Portfolio Pack presents the choice between two
exclusive interior themes, Navy and Truffle, each featuring contrast
stitching and handcrafted soft-grain leather for the 16-way
power-adjustable, heated and cooled front seats and steering wheel.
With either theme, the customer can choose between hand-polished
Shadow Walnut or Dark Figured Aluminum interior trim.
Overhead, the Portfolio Pack adds a handcrafted leather headliner made
by Poltrona Frau of Italy, a feature borrowed from the
limited-production XKR-S. Stainless steel pedals and doorsill scuff
plates and leather trimmed floor mats complete the package.
New XK Touring Models
Exemplifying the value that Jaguar has always offered, the 2013 XK
Touring models bring a new price point to the XK line while retaining
a high level of premium luxury, along with all of the performance of
the standard XK models. For ordering simplicity, the 2013 Jaguar XK
Touring is a single-spec model, with the customer needing to choose
only exterior and interior colors.
Standard 19-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Pack give the XK Touring a
sporty stance. Inside, standard luxury amenities include bond grain
leather, Satin Rosewood veneer interior trim, heated front seats, a
525-watt Jaguar Premium Sound System with Satellite Radio, keyless
entry and start, Reverse Park Camera and Parking Sensors, auto-dimming
power folding exterior mirrors and a multi-function steering wheel.
XK Design Imbues Modernity with Brand Heritage
The current-generation XK was the first Jaguar designed under Jaguar
Design Chief Ian Callum. The long-hood, short-deck theme echoes
classic Jaguar sports cars while providing a luxurious 2+2 cockpit and
usable luggage space. The 2012 design update gave the Jaguar XK a
bolder front appearance with a more aggressive-looking fascia and the
brand's signature "J-blade" Xenon headlights.
The standard Xenon automatic headlights include a power wash function
and dynamic leveling. Corner lights improve visibility while
cornering, which can be further enhanced by optional Active Front
Lighting that directs the headlight beam to bend in the direction of
the steering for added driver confidence at night. In addition,
distinctive LED signature running lights, integrated into the
headlights, provide a bold and modern look when the XK is in motion.
The XK Convertible provides a generous 11.1 cubic-foot trunk (with top
up), and the Coupe offers 11.7 cubic feet of space, with the added
convenience of rear liftback access.
The ultra-high-performance XKR-S gets a racetrack-ready appearance
courtesy of a functional aero treatment. The front splitter, rear air
diffuser and rear lip spoiler are made from lightweight, high-strength
carbon fiber. The broad, vertical side intakes ahead of the front
wheels and twin nacelles at the leading edge of the hood combine with
the aerodynamic spoilers to reduce lift by 26% and increase
directional stability at high track speeds6.
Advanced Aluminum Construction and Engines
Advanced chassis technology, combined with the inherent weight and
stiffness benefits of the aluminum structure, allows the Jaguar XK
models to shine in the corners while providing a very comfortable
The XK models are based on a lightweight body shell architecture
constructed from a combination of pressed, cast and extruded aluminum
alloy components. These are riveted and bonded together using
aerospace industry techniques adapted for automotive use by Jaguar,
and the materials and processes produce a light body shell with very
high structural integrity. The structure's strength, rigidity and
lightness provide the foundation for both the Jaguar XK's exciting
performance and its occupant safety systems.
The low vehicle weight is one reason the 2013 XK Coupe attains an
EPA-estimated 24 mpg in highway driving, and why no XK models are
subject to the Federal Gas Guzzler Tax2.
The AJ-V8 Gen III 5-liter V8 engines are the most advanced Jaguar has
ever produced, and the most powerful ever offered in the XK models.
The naturally aspirated version in the XK produces 385hp and 380
lb.-ft. of torque. An XK Coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in
5.2 seconds and has an electronically limited maximum track speed of
The XKR's supercharged version of this engine produces 510hp and 461
lb.-ft. of torque, the latter available at just 2,500 rpm and
sustained through 5,500 rpm. A twin vortex system (TVS) supercharger
and twin water-cooled intercoolers are efficiently packaged in the
engine's V. The XKR Coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just
4.6 seconds and is electronically limited to a maximum track speed of
155 mph. The optional Dynamic Pack raises this to 174 mph6.
The XKR-S, introduced for 2012, offers the ultimate in XK engine
performance, with its specially tuned supercharged V8 producing 550hp
from 6,000-6,500 rpm, and 502 lb.-ft. of peak torque available at just
2,500 rpm and sustained through 5,500 rpm.
The XKR-S Coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds
and is electronically limited to a maximum track speed of 186 mph6.
This same ultimate-performance machine is EPA-rated at 22 mpg in
highway driving and carries no Gas Guzzler Tax2.
The all-aluminum four-cam Jaguar V8 engines combine high power with
high efficiency, thanks to such technologies as spray-guided direct
fuel injection and dual independent variable cam timing. The naturally
aspirated version employs a variable intake manifold to help optimize
torque across the engine speed range. All XK, XKR and XKR-S models
have 15,000-mile or one-year service intervals, with complimentary
scheduled maintenance for the first four years or 50,000 miles

Jaguar tuned the XK's exhaust sound for a deep, powerful character
befitting a high-performance grand tourer. The XKR-S is additionally
equipped with a Performance Active Exhaust system in which valves open
at higher speeds to provide an even more powerful note, and this
feature is available as an option for the XKR. Also in these models, a
special acoustic filter at the rear of the engine, tuned to
"tenor C," feeds some intake sound to the cabin under hard
All Jaguar XK and XKR models employ an electronically controlled,
fully adaptive six-speed automatic transmission with the unique cast
alloy JaguarDrive Selector™ as well as the Jaguar Sequential Shift™
function operated by steering-wheel paddles. The transmission is
designed to be maintenance-free with "filled-for-life"
Advanced Chassis Dynamics
In all XK, XKR and XKR-S models, the standard Adaptive Dynamics active
damping system optimizes handling agility and ride comfort. The system
monitors body movement 100 times per second and wheel position 500
times per second and automatically increases the damping rate as the
suspension approaches the limits of its travel. Adaptive Dynamics also
controls wheel hop on uneven roads by rapidly varying the damping to
move any wheel out of a natural bouncing frequency, benefiting ride
comfort, handling and tire grip.
The Jaguar XKR-S was developed at the Jaguar Test and Engineering
Centre at the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany. That development work
included designing the proprietary software for Jaguar's Adaptive
Dynamics to optimize body control, traction, and grip. Compared to the
XKR, the XKR-S chassis tuning features 28 percent higher spring rates
and 10mm lower ride height.
The Dynamic Pack option added to the XKR Coupe in 2012 is now
available for the XKR Convertible, as well, and equips either model
with a comprehensive performance upgrade. Special side sills, rear
diffuser, lower front splitter and larger rear wing provide the added
stability needed for Jaguar to unlock a 17 mph top track speed
capability6. The Dynamic Pack further bolsters the XKR's performance
credentials by including the XKR-S Adaptive Dynamics and suspension
tuning. The package's Vulcan-style 20-inch forged wheels show off the
package's red brake calipers.
From the JaguarDrive Control™ interface, the driver can select
different modes for Adaptive Dynamics. In Dynamic Mode, Adaptive
Dynamics increases body control for a sportier feel and also provides
more responsive accelerator pedal reaction and quicker gearshift
responses. The Dynamic Stability Control system offers four
driver-selectable modes: Normal, Winter, Trac DSC and DSC OFF. Winter
Mode yields a more damped accelerator pedal response to provide
progressive control in slippery conditions, with different shift
settings that delay and soften gearshifts, also for better control on
low grip surfaces4.
In XKR and XKR-S models, Adaptive Dynamics operates in tandem with
Active Differential Control (ADC) to optimize available traction at
each rear wheel, improving acceleration on low-grip surfaces while
enhancing cornering ability. The clutch-type electronic differential
is operated by an internal electric motor and ball-and-ramp mechanism
and transmits torque to the wheel with the most traction. This
proactive system differs fundamentally from conventional traction
control, which uses the brakes reactively to counteract slip after it
has occurred. The ADC goes beyond the capability of mechanical limited
slip differentials by actively vectoring torque to improve traction
and cornering, especially during spirited driving and in inclement
In the previous model year's XK refreshing, the cabin was upgraded
with new trim materials including ebony soft-feel paint for the
switches, gloss black finish to the center console and phosphor blue
halo illumination and ambient lighting. The 2013 XK continues the
expanded palette of veneers, color combinations and headliner options
to allow customers to further personalize their XK.
Reflecting Jaguar's renowned craftsmanship and attention to luxury
detail, the XK interiors are appointed with luxurious soft-grain
leather with contrast stitching and offer a wide choice of interior
color options. Wood veneers include a Rich Oak option for the XK
alongside the classic Burl Walnut for both models. The XK also offers
the choice of Ebony or Knurled Aluminum, while the XKR also offers
Dark Oak or Dark Mesh Aluminum (see "XK Touring" section for
details on that model's finishes).
As in Jaguar XF and XJ models, the XK models greet the driver with a
"handshake" sequence. Enter the XK using the standard
keyless entry and keyless start system, then press the pulsing start
button, and the cast alloy JaguarDrive Selector™ rises from the
console. When the engine is stopped, the JaguarDrive Selector™ lowers
Standard equipment across the 2013 XK range also includes a dual zone
climate control system, auto-dimming electro-chromatic power-folding
exterior mirrors and front and rear Park Assist with touch-screen
visual indicators and rear backup camera.
Heated and cooled front seats with 16-way power adjustment and memory
are standard equipment on XK and XKR models; XK Touring and XKR-S
models have standard heated front seats. The XKR models have a unique
R-style seat design, and XKR-S models feature a Performance seat with
additional bolstering. The XKR's instruments emphasize its performance
character with red pointers, while all models feature white instrument
The 2013 XK and XKR Coupe models feature a standard Jaguar Suedecloth
headlining (except Touring, which has a Morzine cloth headliner). The
XK Convertible's triple-lined fabric roof, which preserves the classic
sports car profile and weighs less than a retractable hardtop, can be
powered up or down in less than 18 seconds at speeds up to 20 mph.
When lowered, the top stores in the bodywork behind the rear seats
under a smooth cover. The raised top provides a level of fit that
minimizes wind and other road noise even at high speeds. The top's
luxurious interior finish is nearly indistinguishable from that of a
closed coupe. Seven Convertible top colors are available.
Using the seven-inch touch screen, the driver or front passenger can
access functions for the climate control, navigation system,
Bluetooth® mobile connectivity7 and for Jaguar's Portable Audio
Interface, which are all standard. The Portable Audio Interface
provides iPod® connectivity and enables connection of other music
storage devices through a USB port to the audio system, with full
The new-for-2013 XK Touring models feature a Jaguar premium audio
system, while all other models in the series come equipped as standard
with a high-end Bowers & Wilkins audio system featuring 525-watt
maximum output, Dolby® ProLogic®II Surround Sound, Kevlar® midrange
speakers and aluminum tweeters. SIRIUS® Satellite Radio is standard on
every XK model except the XKR-S Convertible, and includes a
three-month trial subscription. The XKR and XKR-S models also include
standard HD Radio,
which is optional for the XK models.
All XK models are equipped with front, front side and thorax airbags.
Additionally, Jaguar's front head restraint system helps protect
against whiplash in the event of a rear impact. The XK Convertible's
hidden rollover protection system deploys instantly if sensors
identify a risk, helping provide protection for the occupants4.
Jaguar's Emergency Brake Assist is standard. On models equipped with
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the Advanced Emergency Brake Assist
uses the ACC radar to help calculate distance from and speed of
approach to the vehicle ahead. The system is designed to pre-charge
brake-line pressure to help minimize impact speed if a collision is
predicted, with an audible warning to the driver4.
