2017 Jaguar XE Special Preview | Jaguar Minneapolis

Earlier this week Jaguar unveiled an updated 2017 Jaguar XE that is set to hit American soil in the spring of 2016 as 2017 model. Previous XE models were not available in the United States, but the U.S. will have the first shot at the new 2017 model.

The 2017 Jaguar XE will feature an Ingenium diesel engine which will be the first oil-powered engine in the States and will be available in 4 trims. The XE, SE Premium, XE Prestige and XE R-Sport trims will be offered in rear-wheel drive with all-wheel drive available on some models. An update to the 2017 model is the addition of an optional on-demand all-wheel drive powertrain.

A number of infotainment features are also new to the 2017 Jaguar XE. Customers will be able to choose between the Jaguar InControl Touch and Jaguar InControl Touch Pro when customizing their vehicle. Jaguar InControl Touch include the following features:

  • Bluetooth
  • Audio streaming
  • USB connectivity
  • SD card based navigation
  • Voice control
  • User friendly maps
  • Pinch-to-zoom commands

Jaguar InControl Touch Pro features cutting edge technology including a powerful quad-core processor and high speed solid-state drive. The system is connected by an ultra-fast Ethernet that is up to five times faster than competing technologies. Jaguar InControl Touch also comes equipped with a 10.2-inch touchscreen, the largest in the segment, complete with a home screen that can be customized and widgets that can be added. The screen delivers superb graphics and supports multitasking. Up to five panels can be open at once. Both Jaguar InControl Touch and Jaguar InControl Touch apps are compatible with Jaguar’s all new InControl Remote App for the Apple Watch.

All of these top of line features come at a surprising low price tag with the XE 25t 2.0L Turbocharged I-4, 240hp starting from $34,900, the XE 20d 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 diesel, 180hp Starting from $36,400 and the XE 35t 3.0L Supercharged V6, 340hp Starting from $41,700.
