(MAHWAH, NJ) ? July 14, 2014 ? Jaguar will unveil the latest addition
to its sports sedan car family, the Jaguar XE, at a star-studded event
in London on September 8th. The event will mark the unveiling of a
true driver's car; one that redefines the concept of the sports
Jaguar will bring levels of innovation with its lightweight
construction expertise and sophisticated chassis technology in
addition to the new family of Ingenium engines ? all designed,
engineered and manufactured in the UK.
Built around an all-new, aluminum-intensive architecture, the XE
combines thrilling performance, agile handling and precise, responsive
steering, with outstanding levels of refinement.
Mike Cross, Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, said, "Jaguar
vehicles' have always been renowned for a balance of precise handling
and high-quality ride. The XE is the culmination of everything the
company has learned over the years. The Integral Link rear suspension
provides a combination of supple ride and crisp handling that is
unmatched in this segment. We are on target to deliver a vehicle that
dynamically outperforms our rivals."
Integral Link rear suspension
The Integral Link rear suspension delivers major benefits over
conventional multi-link designs. By providing lateral and longitudinal
stiffness, the Integral Link delivers sharp response and handling
while retaining a refined, luxurious ride. Many components of the
Integral Link suspension are made from forged or hollow-cast
Mounted to a subframe with cast aluminum suspension towers, the double
wishbone of the front suspension on the XE delivers exceptional
handling and road holding. The advanced design is based on the F-TYPE
sports car. This design ensures the XE enjoys a similar level of
agility and 'connected' steering feel. Like the rear suspension,
components are made from cast and forged aluminum.
New Electric Power Assisted Steering
Jaguar is renowned for its steering feel and this will carry on with
the XE. The XE becomes the first Jaguar vehicle to be equipped with
the latest generation Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS).
Electric Power Assisted Steering allows a much greater scope for
tuning than hydraulic-based systems. Benefits include excellent
steering feel, variable steering damping, ease of low-speed
maneuvering and the ability to adapt to Jaguar Drive Control settings.
EPAS also enables a range of Driver Aid features.
All Surface Progress Control
Even with the best traction control, rear-wheel drive cars can
experience a sub-optimal start on very slippery surfaces. For that
reason, Jaguar has developed All Surface Progress Control (ASPC).
Developed from decades of Jaguar Land Rover experience in off-road
traction systems, ASPC can electronically modulate traction with
greater precision than a human driver can achieve. The system works
like a low-speed cruise control to improve forward progress under
