SVO has also established a new technical center close to Jaguar Land Rover’s main facility in Coventry, England.

    Maybe this is how we'll remember sports cars. Once everything runs off a silent pack of cells charged wirelessly overnight. Once no one actually owns a car outright. Once cars turn into self-driven transportation devices, run by apps, pre-programmed for convenience, drained of life. Savor this one...

    8 things that make a Jaguar F-Type an SVR

    What's in an acronym? In the case of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR, it's not just a pretty face and a $126,945 price tag. As it does with the gutsy Range Rover Sport SVR, Jaguar Land Rover doesn't spare much in the mission to give those letters real meaning. That meaning: pretty obvious. SVR stands...

  • 2017 Jaguar F-Pace

    To say that Jaguar is excited to bring its new F-Pace crossover to market would be an understatement. The British brand expects the new raised-up ride to be its top selling model once it arrives in dealer showrooms. Why's that? Well the 25,000 pre-orders that have lead to a six-month waiting list. That's probably a good sign. ALSO SEE: Audi to launch at least 1 electrified car per year from 2018 Per Automotive News (subscription required), Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum has stated that this will be the best selling Jag vehicle of all time.

  • 2017 Jaguar F-Pace  -  2015 Frankfurt Motor Show live photos

    A new report suggests Jaguar is looking at shoehorning a V-8 engine, presumably a supercharged one at that, into its new F-Pace crossover SUV. The F-Pace is Jaguar's first high-riding model, and while the brand says it has given up on wagons based on sedans, that doesn't mean that it has no intentions of making a high performance crossover to square off against rivals from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz, among others. Car and Driver reports that Jaguar's SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division is hard at work on a new F-Pace range-topper that would offer considerably more power than the...

    Jaguar Land Rover may not be a brand most would associate with car-sharing, but that's just what the British company says its new InMotion division will be up to.
