    As with last year, some of the press vehicles I drove this year went without a written review (though we did cover them on The Off the Road Again Podcast). Yet these cars, trucks, and SUVs are still worth mentioning, so this post covers them in short format. In chronological order from least to most…

    “A Jaguar SUV? You gotta be shittin’ me!” the bystander proclaimed upon approaching the F-Pace SVR that I had just exited. Ten years ago it would have been blasphemy; in fairness, to some it still is. But luxury and speed have evolved since the days of the Jags everyone remembers and loves, and now we…

    Jaguar F-Pace …SVR. Oh the noise. The raucous 550-horsepower supercharged V8 engine sings a symphony that’s deep and beautiful. And then it’s interrupted by fire belches, and it makes everything better. This is a machine that, if you still don’t like crossovers, will make you realize that perhaps you should soften that stance. Yes, we’d…

    Jaguar is diving into the EV world. No, not with their E-Pace but with the I-Pace. Yes I agree, the naming convention is confusing. Regardless, what’s not confusing is the fact that 512 pound-feet of torque available from a dead stop is an intoxicating bit of engineering. First Drive: Jaguar E-Pace As more automakers bring ever more…

    Crossovers are currently where all the cash sits. Car buyers want them, and automakers keep cranking them out. That’s how we wind up with a vehicle like the all-new Jaguar E-Pace. It’s the baby of the Jaguar crossover bunch, but that doesn’t mean it’s simply an entry-level cash grab. Okay, it’s sort of that… but…

    It’s the shape of the thing… that hits you first. The long hood, the open face, and those hips… To say that Ian Callum’s style influence at Jaguar has been a good thing is as vast an understatement as saying the F-Type is a non-subtle piece of automobile. Despite the fact that your heart never…

Alongside the new XE, the F-Pace is set to bring more folks into Jaguar dealerships. In fact, there’s already a waiting list to get the sporty luxury crossover in its home country of…

    [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN7GQ4Yj-Ig[/youtube] Jaguar makes some good looking cars, and it’s a company that still has an air of exclusivity around it even though it’s not quite as expensive as its competition. It’s a brand that’s looking to sell more vehicles too, and to do that it needs to actually offer a wider range of products. There’s…

    [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTuwwRelgm0[/youtube] It’s been a hell of a year for those of us who love noise, horsepower, and cars that encourage driving shenanigans. The perfectly sculpted icing on this massively delicious cake has to be the Jaguar F-Type R coupe. It’s a simple recipe at first glance; you take a powerful engine, pair it with a…

    Power corrupts… and supercharged luxury sport coupe power corrupts awesomely. In the rarefied air of this automotive segment, there are a few must-have items to be checked off the list. I want elegant exterior styling with subtle muscular design cues. I need a comfortable interior that is fitted with up-scale materials, up-dated technology, and provides…
