JAGUAR LAND ROVER SHOWCASES ITS LATEST MODELS AT THE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
(MAHWAH, N.J.) - February 9, 2016- Jaguar Land Rover will showcase more than 10 vehicles at the Chicago Auto Show on February 13 - February 21, 2016 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
Jaguar models on display will include the brand's two newest offerings which go on sale later this year - the new 2017 Jaguar XE compact sports sedan and the first-ever Jaguar SUV, the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE. The recently redesigned XF mid-size luxury sedan, full-size Jaguar XJ and F-TYPE sports car will also be on hand.
Joining Jaguar, the Land Rover brand will have the new 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible on display, fresh from its worldwide debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Land Rover will also have the rest of its line-up represented with the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Land Rover LR4 sharing space on the show floor.
2017 Jaguar F-PACE
First unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the F-PACE joins the brand's line-up as the latest entry to the highly competitive compact performance SUV segment. As the first-ever SUV from the Jaguar brand, the F-PACE has been designed to deliver the same dynamic driving experience Jaguar owners have come to expect, while building on the cargo-carrying and versatility SUV owners demand.
The F-PACE benefits from a shared aluminum-intensive platform that's found in the XE and XF, as well as key driver assistance features, suspension and powertrain components that are found in the F-TYPE. Together, they help deliver exceptional driving dynamics, refined ride characteristics and confident road holding abilities owners have come to expect in Jaguar sports sedans and sports cars, in an SUV.
U.S. buyers will have their choice of a 340- or 380-hp supercharged 3.0L gasoline V6 mated to an 8-speed transmission with power being routed to all four wheels via a torque-on-demand all-wheel drive system2 when the car goes on sale in mid-2016. Later in the year, a new turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine will also be added to the model lineup. Upon introduction, the F-PACE will be priced from $42,3901 for the V6 gas engine and $40,9901 for 4-cyl diesel engine.
2017 Jaguar XE
Launched globally in 2015, the Jaguar XE compact sports sedan will arrive in North American showrooms in spring of 2016 as a 2017 model year. Built on the same aluminum-intensive architecture shared with both the new XF and F-PACE, the XE completes the modern Jaguar sedan line-up as a new entry point for buyers looking for the brand's streamlined styling, luxurious interiors, outstanding ride and handling.
When it arrives in dealer showrooms, the XE will be selectively available with a choice of three powertrains and four trim levels. Engines include a refined 2.0L 180-hp turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine - the 20d; a 240-hp turbocharged gas four-cylinder engine - the 25t; and the range-topping 340-hp supercharged gas V6 engine - the 35t; selectively available in both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations. The XE will be priced from $34,9001 for the four-cylinder gas engine when it goes on sale in late spring 2016.
Range Rover Evoque Convertible
As the latest model in the Range Rover Evoque line-up, the all-new 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible enhances the desirability of the Range Rover Evoque family, expanding the Land Rover brand to a new audience of customers looking for a unique combination of open-air driving and luxurious refinement.
The new Range Rover Evoque Convertible has been engineered to be instantly identifiable as a member of the Range Rover Evoque family whether the acoustically-lined fabric top is up or down. In keeping with the award-winning design found in the five-door and coupe derivatives of the fixed-roof Range Rover Evoque, the new convertible retains not only the model's elegant design, but also the characteristic versatility, comfort and all-terrain capability.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, commented: "When the Range Rover Evoque Convertible was first shown as a concept, the response was overwhelmingly positive. It was the next logical step to bring the pioneering concept to reality and with a clear design strategy we have safeguarded the distinctive character of the Range Rover Evoque. The result is the ultimate expression of fun and desirability building on the ever-popular Evoque nameplate which continues to bring new customers to the brand."
The Jaguar Land Rover booth is located in the main hall (Booth #FH5-6) at McCormick Place, located at Lake Shore Drive at 23rd Street, Chicago, IL 60616. The show runs February 13 - 26, and for a full list of hours, directions and additional information, visit chicagoautoshow.com.
