What's New for 2013:

  • Entry-level Touring model debuts
  • Upgraded Dynamic Pack for XKR

Exterior Features
The 2013 Jaguar XK coupe and XK Convertible are offered in XK Touring, standard XK, supercharged XKR, and performance-oriented XKR-S trim levels. Standard equipment for the XK Touring trim includes 19-inch aluminum wheels, bi-xenon high-intensity discharge headlights, and LED running lights.

Interior Features
The 2013 Jaguar XK Touring comes standard with heated 10-way power seats wrapped in leather, extended leather treatment for the cabin, dual-zone automatic climate control, and keyless entry with push-button ignition. Additionally, a standard 7-inch color touch-screen display features a navigation system and a 525-watt surround-sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, iPod/USB connection, and satellite radio.

Optional Features
Jaguar offers no factory options for the XK Touring trim, but a list of extra-cost accessories is available through the dealer. To access more equipment, buyers must upgrade to the XK, XKR or XKR-S.

The Jaguar XK is equipped with 20-inch aluminum wheels, premium leather with contrast stitching, heated and ventilated 16-way power sport seats, heated steering wheel, and a Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system. Jaguar offers numerous paint, leather, wheel, and cabin trim selections to personalize the XK to specific tastes, and options for the XK trim include HD Radio, heated windshield, suede-wrapped sport steering wheel, and an Advanced Technology Pack that includes adaptive cruise control with forward alert, and adaptive headlights.

The Jaguar XKR is equipped with a supercharged V-8 engine, active differential control, performance brakes, active exhaust system with quad outlets, adaptive headlights, HD Radio, hood louvers, and unique 20-inch wheels.

As with the XK, the XKR is offered with a wide variety of exterior colors, leather options, and interior trims. Adaptive cruise control with forward alert, heated windshield, and a sport steering wheel wrapped in suede are also optional on this trim level. Extras unique to the XKR include a Performance Active Exhaust system, red-painted brake calipers, chrome mesh grille, and a choice of three option packages. The Black Pack has gloss black wheels and exterior trim, and larger front and rear spoilers. The Dynamic Pack includes lightweight forged aluminum wheels, lowered performance suspension with XKR-S tuning, upgraded Adaptive Dynamics, front splitter, larger side sill extensions, rear diffuser panel, larger rear spoiler, and a 174-mph top speed, according to Jaguar. The automaker also offers a combination of both the Black Pack and the Dynamic Pack.

The Jaguar XKR-S debuted for 2012, and returns for 2013 with just 100 coupes and 100 convertibles coming to the United States. The XKR-S is equipped with a more powerful supercharged V-8 engine, Performance Active Exhaust with quad outlets, specially tuned active rear differential and Adaptive Dynamics systems, lowered performance suspension, and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels in a matte gray finish. Styling is revised front and rear, with hood scoops, hood vents, rear wing with a carbon fiber inlay, carbon fiber rear diffuser, and gloss black trim separating the XKR-S from other XK models. The 16-way power performance seats are designed to accept a 5-point racing harness, and the XKR-S includes unique carbon leather upholstery, leather headliner, stainless steel pedals, and dark aluminum cabin trim.

As a limited-production model, the XKR-S is available with unique color, leather and interior trim choices. A carbon fiber engine cover and a heated windshield are optional, as well as a Bright Pack that adds polished wheels and chrome exterior trim.

Under the Hood
The Jaguar XK is equipped with a standard 5.0-liter V-8 engine that generates 385 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 rpm. A 6-speed automatic transmission drives the rear wheels, and the XK coupe accelerates to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds (5.3 seconds for the XK Convertible), according to Jaguar.

A supercharged version of the standard 5.0-liter V-8 is installed in the XKR model, generating 510 horsepower between 6,000 rpm and 6,500 rpm and 461 lb.-ft. of torque between 2,500 rpm and 5,500 rpm. Acceleration to 60 mph takes 4.6 seconds, and the XKR can achieve a top speed of 174 mph when properly equipped. For 2013, the optional Dynamic Pack adds XKR-S suspension tuning to the XKR.

The Jaguar XKR-S accelerates to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds on the way to a 186-mph top speed. This model's supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 generates 550 horsepower between 6,000 rpm and 6,500 rpm, and 502 lb.-ft. of torque between 2,500 rpm and 5,500 rpm.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Jaguar XK models are:

  • XK: 16/24/22 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • XKR: 15/22/17 mpg
  • XKR-S: 15/22/17 mpg

Safety
In addition to 4 air bags, 4-wheel ventilated disc anti-lock brakes with cornering brake control and emergency brake assist, and a traction and stability control system, the 2013 Jaguar XK is equipped with front and rear park-assist sensors and a reversing camera. Convertible models get a rollover protection system that automatically activates if a rollover accident occurs. Adaptive headlights and an adaptive cruise control system with forward alert are optional.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the 2013 Jaguar XK as this overview is written.
