The new Jaguar XE in Mills River, NC has all of the tools needed to make the traditional powers in the high-performance compact luxury sedan class on notice. Drivers aggressively attacking the twists, turns and curves of a road will enjoy the specially-designed superstructure of the new Jaguar XE and its lightweight aluminum architecture. The materials used to build the body of the Jaguar XE help provide a nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance while preventing the body from twisting as much as possible. To further enhance handling and stability, the new Jaguar XE uses automatic torque vectoring when a driver applies the brakes heading to a curve to prevent the loss of traction.
Jaguar Asheville customers will have six trim grades to choose from XE base, Premium, Prestige, R-Sport, S and Portfolio. The most glaring differences among the trims of the new Jaguar XE in Mills River, NC is the level of performance available. Base models are outfitted with either a 247-horsepower gasoline engine or a diesel engine making 180 horsepower. A supercharged, V-6 engine making 340 or 380 horsepower can be placed under the hood of the remaining trim grades. Additionally, some of the top trims of the new Jaguar XE offer configurable dynamics technology. This system allows drivers to customize the transmission’s shift points, throttle response and the car’s handling profile.
