2016 Jaguar XF pairs low-weight and high-tech

Jaguar has taken the wraps off the new Jaguar XF, a new luxury sedan set to take on BMW's 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz's E-Class, and promising not only sports performance but economy too. Following in the tiremarks of the aluminum-centric architecture of the larger XJ, and borrowing the styling of the smaller Jaguar XE, the new XF has a near 50:50 weight distribution and uses the Configurable Dynamics system that debuted on the F-Type convertible and coupe. With that, Jaguar says, the rear-wheel drive XF should deliver the same stability as an AWD car. However, the company also claims, the XF will be capable of up to 70 mpg, though probably not in the US.

Jaguar Land Rover “Bike Sense” aims to save cyclists’ lives

In the UK alone, a recorded staggering 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured each year, making what is in theory a healthy lifestyle also a dangerous one. That is why Jaguar Land Rover is investing in research and automotive technology that aims to make roads a safer place for cyclists, not by simply relegating them to a part of the road but by helping inform drivers of oncoming bikers. They're calling it Bike Sense and it gives drivers a sort of sixth sense, thanks to advancements in driver assistance technologies.

Jaguar Land Rover wants to make your car pillars disappear

Jaguar Land Rover wants to make your car pillars disappear

Beautiful as your car's frame might be, some consider them as visual obstructions that keep drivers from getting the full view of their surroundings to help them make safer choices. What if you could make that frame disappear without actually making them disappear? That contradiction is exactly what Jaguar Land Rover is trying to develop with its 360-degree Urban Widescreen, which turns a car's pillars seemingly transparent, without actually changing the material and form of the pillars themselves.

Exactly how those new treats have been portioned out is likely to cause a few arguments, however.

And to further compete with the likes of Siri and Google Now, the car maker has augmented its in-car system with justDrive, a voice-activated multi-purpose app that takes the drudgery of awkward spoken syntaxes and lets users control their connected phones in plain English.

2016 Jaguar F-TYPE R gets AWD to go jet baiting

Jaguar is adding all-wheel drive to its 2016 F-TYPE R Coupé, part of a range-boosting move that will see variations on the popular model double to twelve. Set to debut officially - along with the rest of the new lineup - at the LA Auto Show later this month, the new F-TYPE R will be good for 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, Jaguar says, and then romp on to a top speed electronically-limited to 186 mph. The big news, though, is the extra traction, which Jaguar tested by taking the new coupé to the Hakskeen Pan in South Africa and pointing it at a jet.
