Both XKs and XKRs come in a coupe or convertible.
2016,Constructed mostly of aluminum, the 2009 Jaguar XK and XKR are significantly stiffer than prior generations. The 4.2L V8 engine is refined and powerful, and is mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission with steering wheel paddle shifters. Underneath, the eCATS system actively adjusts the suspension to keep the ride smooth yet sporty. Traction control and dynamic stability control are standard, and the roomy interior is even stocked with a standard DVD-based navigation system. The 4-model lineup includes the normally-aspirated V8 XK coupe and convertible and their rakish alter egos, the supercharged XKRs.
2016,Jaguar aimed for a thoroughbred sports car with the XK and XKRs and succeeded. The chassis has many aluminum components, helping the convertibles remain stiff enough to handle as respectable sports cars. The transmission, with three settings, can be luxury smooth or razor sharp depending on the driver's mood.
2016,Luxury is Jaguar's signature, and both XK and XKR come well-appointed and offer several customization options. On the XK, plenty of leather, aluminum, and two choices of interior wood trim make for a classy interior. Opt for the Aluminum Luxury package and 20-inch staggered-width wheels and tires are added, the dashboard gets wrapped in leather, the seats receive 16-way power adjusters and the steering wheel is heated. An Advanced Technology Package adds adaptive cruise control and active front lighting. Other features available are Keyless Entry and Keyless Start, 7-in. touchscreen for audio, telephone, climate, navigation, personalization and valet, Dual-stage airbags and side, seat-mounted airbags for front occupants
2016,The XKR can be made even more opulent. Owners select from either aluminum or three wood trims to begin with. To take the XKR to a new level, the new KXR Portfolio, new for 2009, comes with Exclusive Shadow Grey Metallic Paint, Option of Charcoal or Charcoal/Ivory interior with Slate or Cranberry stitching, Bowers & Wilkins 525-watt premium surround system with Dolby Pro Logic 2 and Sirius satellite radio and Leather-edged Portfolio front floor mats
2016,The convertible soft top operates via a single button and neatly stows under an aluminum tonneau cover. It also features a heated glass rear window. When the top is down the occupants are protected in the event of a rollover by roll bars that pop up behind the seats.
2016,All models come with a 4-year/50,000 mile basic warranty and a 6-year/ unlimited mile corrosion warranty.
