Gallery: Jaguar Shows Off the 2017 XE and F-PACE in Austin, Texas
XKSS. E-Type. XJ220. Jaguar has made some of the most beautiful rolling masterpieces the world has ever seen. Earlier this week, it and the staff of Jaguar Land Rover Austin held a launch party for the 2017 XE sport sedan and F-PACE luxury performance SUV at a fitting place: the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum in Austin, Texas.
The venue’s four acres of lush greenery and dozens of bronze and stone statues were destinations themselves, but we were there to see the red covers pulled off of the X-Type’s successor and Jaguar’s first-ever sport utility vehicle. Both the XE and the F-PACE expand the Jaguar portfolio to a five-model lineup. If all goes according to the brand’s plan, they’ll also help Jaguar double its sales this year.
Both models are available now, but it will take some to see if people will embrace a British alternative to the popular four-door competitors from the three big German companies whose names we all know. Perhaps Jaguar’s first SUV will do for it what the Cayenne did for Porsche. We’ll find out, eventually.
Until then, check out the picture gallery of the 2017 Jaguar XE and F-PACE below.
