The Jaguar XE Delivers Sport, Luxury, and Efficiency

2017-03-16T11:12:14+00:00March 16th, 2017|Jaguar, New Vehicles|

The Jaguar XE proves to customers that being the least expensive Sedan the brand offers does not mean quality needs to be compromised.

Jaguar as a brand has never been well known for offering low-priced vehicles. They provide some of the highest quality products in the market and their prices have always been consistent with their product. However, the low price of the new Jaguar XE is almost making the brand seem charitable. This car was made for drivers who want the luxury and style of the Jaguar experience, but are looking to pay a reasonable price. The Jaguar XE is anything but average. It ranks at the top of the list in the sport sedan category, offering the thrill of a sports car with the practicality of a sedan.

Choose Between XE Diesel or XE S

For the time being, the Jaguar XE will be available in two options, (with another arriving shortly after): the 180-hp diesel or the driver’s choice, supercharged, 340-hp V-6 XE S. Either route you choose, you will be thoroughly satisfied, however, it is more likely that the XE S will be the crowd favorite.

The XE S manages to keep its body to a light-weight 3,787 pounds by strategically placing steel parts for optimal weight distribution. The Eaton supercharged engine pushes 11.6 psi of air into the cylinders to squeeze 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque from only 3.0 liters of displacement. As a result, this machine provides instant thrust that progressively and seamlessly builds, without ever reducing the vehicle’s aptitude for aggressive acceleration while cruising. The XE S is not opposed to having the petal to the metal taking the car from zero-to-sixty in just 4.5 seconds.

In addition to the vehicle’s playful side, it offers great stability as a daily commuter on public roads. The Jaguar XE has the advantage of driving with the smooth sense of a Cadillac, but offers a much more stylish appearance. The XE has established the perfect medium between the soft body roll of the Cadillac and the stiffness of the average sports car. It is a delightfully controlled ride with quick responses and an impressive fuel efficiency at a combined 26 mpg.

The Jaguar XE may not be priced like every other Jaguar, but it’s clearly from the same family. To learn more about the XE and other Jaguar models, visit Jaguar Santa Barbara and speak with one of our brand-trained sales representative.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Features Exceptional Engineering Advantages

2015-07-16T10:41:41+00:00July 16th, 2015|Mercedes Benz|

Mercedes-Benz and AMG have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind luxury sport performance vehicle that boasts a myriad of engineering innovations that give it a clear advantage on the track.

There is no lack of remarkable engineering achievements in the current luxury sports performance industry. All over the world, automotive engineers are creating some of the fastest and most efficient vehicles ever and these incredible vehicle capabilities continue to improve with each passing year. One of the most remarkable new vehicles to enter the market recently is the result of two industry leaders working together to create something new and special. Mercedes-Benz and AMG have worked together to bring the Mercedes-AMG to the world this year and have given the vehicle a slew of unique qualities that propel it forwards as a leader in its class.

The Mercedes-AMG GT is only the second car to be built by AMG and stays true to its racing heritage. The vehicle is built on an SLS platform modified for the new design. Once they had the base in place, AMG made no compromises as they engineered it for speed, agility, and exceptional handling.

Impressive Power from a Unique V8

The heart of the Mercedes-AMG GT S is the impressive V8 engine capable of 503hp and 479lb-ft of torque. With so much power pumping through its veins, the GT S barely breaks a sweat as it rockets from 0 to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds. On the track, the vehicle tops out at a stunning 193mph with strength to spare. Critics have commended the vehicle for its exceptional handling and impressive power.

Efficient Design

Another reason the Mercedes-AMG GT S is able to post such impressive stats is the remarkably efficient design. Again, AMG engineers made no compromises on quality with the overall design. The sports car features a curb weight of 3,695lbs balanced perfectly for optimal power and weight distribution. The 7-speed transmission is placed at the rear of the vehicle and features an electronic differential for flawless performance. An automatic rear spoiler engages at speeds over 75mph and optional carbon ceramic brakes provide controlled braking and handling on and off the track.

So there you have it. The Mercedes-AMG GT S is as stunning and impressive as we hoped it would be and is ready and waiting for the chance to push the limits of the road and track. Drivers can watch for the car to arrive in the coming months and can follow updates and information from Mercedes through Santa Barbara Auto Group. Base price for the AMG GT S will start around $150,000.
