2011 Jaguar XK Overview
For the ultimate in luxury, style, and power, the 2011 Jaguar XK coupe/convertible is to the auto world what the jaguar is to the animal kingdom – a predator.
The 2011 Jaguar XK is a top-of-the-line luxury sports car that is available as a coupe or soft-top convertible. Power is king with a 385-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. For those who have a need for speed, the performance driven XKR comes equipped with a 510-horsepower, 5.0-liter supercharged V-8. If you want to be fast off the line, the XKR can rocket from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, and the XK is no slouch either clocking in at a quick 5.2 seconds. The 2011 Jaguar XK lineup delivers 15-16 mpg city and 23-24 and competes with the BMW 650 and Mercedes-Benz SL550.
Fortunately for XK and XKR owners, the super-fast coupe/convertible looks just like it drives—sleek, smooth, and sharp. An all-aluminum frame and chassis is lightweight, and the elements are bonded and riveted instead of being welded which decreases drag. The XK is also equipped with JaguarDrive Selector and JaguarDrive Control, which allow the driver to set the suspension from tight and sporty to soft and comfortable, depending on circumstances. The XK rests on 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels and bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps, dual exhaust and power-operated and heated side mirrors make for a highly functional exterior. The XKR features a mesh grille, modified fog lights, quad exhaust, and dual hood louvers.
Inside the 2011 Jaguar XK, you’ll find plenty of legroom for the front seats, while the rear seats can only be occupied if the front passengers slide their seats up. The soft top on the convertible is thick and allows the same amount of exterior noise as the coupe. Leather heated seats and steering wheel help keep you cozy in the winter. A premium audio system, six-CD changer, satellite radio, and Bluetooth® connectivity provide a grand listening experience. A touch-screen navigation system, adaptive cruise control, heated steering wheel, and a leather-appointed dash are available.
When it comes to safety, the 2011 Jaguar XK has you covered. Adaptive front headlights, side-impact airbags, active front head restraints, four-wheel antilock disc brakes with brake assist and an electronic stability system are standard. Adaptive cruise control uses radar sensors to monitor traffic ahead and aid the driver in maintaining a safe following distance.
Fast and furious, yet refined. You’ll turn heads and burn rubber in the stylish and powerful 2011 Jaguar XK.
