There is something about New York City, both as the media and business capital of the U.S. and as a market itself, which aligns with the Jaguar brand. One respected and senior auto writer commented to me, and I quote, ‘The New York Show is SO Jaguar Land Rover!’ – and we couldn’t agree more, writes Stuart Schorr, Vice President of Communications & Public Affairs,Jaguar Land Rover North America.
The newest Jaguar models; Instinctive All-Wheel Drive™ XF and XJ vehicles, XJR, XKR-S GT and F-TYPE will have the U.S. as their largest market and hence are well suited to debut under the bright city lights.
For Jaguar, this year’s show was highlighted by the expansion of its R performance line up from four to six cars with two global debuts. The Jaguar XJR, a 550 hp sports sedan which combines supercar performance with the opulence and comfort of British luxury, was revealed along with the limited production Jaguar XKR-S GT, a track-ready and street legal version of the XKR-S Coupe. Both of these high performance vehicles are expected to be most popular in the United States; especially among automotive enthusiast journalists.
The expansion of the R performance line up dovetails nicely with the Jaguar brand’s overall increased emphasis on dynamic driving performance, which is highlighted by the Jaguar F-TYPE. On the second press day, the Jaguar F-TYPE was awarded the World Car Design of the Year award adding even more focus to the stunning new convertible. We are thrilled that the work of the Jaguar Design Team, led by Ian Callum, has been recognized for this achievement.
In addition to the World Car Design of the Year accolade, the Jaguar F-TYPE made its national TV debut last week and was featured as one of the sports cars to look out for at the 2013 New York Auto Show on Live! With Kelly & Michael on ABC-TV and Fox and Friends on FOX News. The Jaguar F-TYPE convertible goes on sale this May.
With three global debuts, Jaguar and Land Rover certainly had a busy New York Auto Show. There is no denying that New York certainly is our kind of town. Thanks everyone.
