The 2010 Jaguar XK features sporty revisions of the front bumper, rear spoiler and rear lights along with an updated interior. The chassis remains unchanged for 2010, only three years old and still state-of-the-art: aluminium monocoque, glued and riveted, very light and rigid. The suspension and electronics that support this, have been improved or are new for 2010.
The six-speed automatic gearbox with gearstick paddles is smooth and tight, with speed-dependent downshifting. For 2010 a rotary knob on the centre console will be used to select Drive, Park, Reverse and Sport, a feature introduced on the Jaguar XF 2009.
The new V8 engine has a cylinder capacity of 5.0 litres, but is more compact than the old 4.2 litres. It is considerably more powerful than the previous engine, while achieving the same fuel consumption and slightly better emissions thanks to direct injection, which injects aerated fuel into the combustion chambers.
In terms of acceleration, the new engine turns the 2010 XK into an eye-catcher, reducing the 0-60 time from 5.9 to 5.2 seconds in the atmospheric XK (385 HP).
The 2010 Jaguar XKR, which uses the same engine with a supercharger up to 510 HP, can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds, a significant improvement compared to the old model’s 4.9 seconds. The secret of this new thrust is a new generation of superchargers.
The 2010 Jaguar XK has it all: flawless engine, transmission, brakes, styling, details. Fantastic driving and great for bends. The comfortable interior, a bit more luxureous than sporty. Our biggest complaints concern the round button that serves as a shifter and the non-intuitive LCD touchscreen control.
