X-File: A New Jaguar
Signals Continued Emergence
Conventry - Within the confines of this manufacturing facility that once built the Supermarine Spitfire fighter aircraft so critical to the RAF's success against the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain, a new Jaguar X-Type was designed and developed.
It is the first Jaguar to feature all-wheel-drive, and will compete head on with 3 other stellar mid-luxury brands; Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3-Series and Audi A4.
A Child of Sir William
Possessed of clean, sculptured lines that readily identify it as a child of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons, e MOTION! REPORTS expects X-Type to be an overwhelming success.
In fact, we're recommending to Jaguar North America President Mike O'Driscoll that he should pick up the phone and advise the company's Halewood on Merseyside plant to increase their projected manufacturing numbers by 17%.
Buyers will have a choice of either a 2.5L or 3.0L V-6 with the promise of spirited performance coupled with the catlike grip accorded it by the AWD system. Expect to see X-Type here in late summer, early fall, with a price tag comparable to its competition. Moreover, the company anticipates a doubling of sales world wide whilst maintaining the classic form and function of this most admirable product of the Empire.
Again, we like what we see. And although we'll reserve final assessment until we've spent some time with the vehicle, we have decided it most appropriate to grace your screen with compelling images of this sibling of S-type through provision of a downloadable PDF file. Myron D. Stokes
