The true Jaguar sports car for tomorrow and beyond, the new 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE is next in a distinguished bloodline that delivers the look, the feel, the performance and handling of Jaguar’s iconic brand and makes its Canadian debut at the 2013 Canadian International Auto Show. The F-TYPE is powered by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged 340 hp engine, delivering exciting performance with 0-to-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds, driving through an eight-speed ‘Quickshift’ automatic transmission, with a centre console-mounted SportShift gear selector and steering wheel-mounted paddles for full manual control.

Specially designed for high-performance driving, Jaguar’s fastest and most powerful sports sedan ever makes its only Canadian appearance at the 2013 Canadian International Auto Show. With its commanding coupé-like styling, the Jaguar XFR-S turns heads everywhere it goes. Its muscular poise and throaty exhaust dramatically announces its arrival. With honed aerodynamic lines promising agility, the XFR-S appears primed and ready to pounce. Its sleek new body shape includes super strong, lightweight, carbon fibre details including the lower grille surround, front splitter and rear diffuser. The XFR-S powertrain provides the ultimate in performance for a luxury sedan. Its 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine has been tuned and calibrated to produce an astonishing 300km/h top speed. XFR-S achieves awe-inspiring acceleration: 0-to-100km/h in just 4.4 seconds, exploiting its immense 550PS power delivery and an outstanding 502 lb ft of torque. It also allows superb, agile handling, ensuring a thrilling driving experience. With its modified sports exhaust, XFR-S adds a raw note of pure power to its breath-taking acceleration.
Range Rover Autobiography
Flagship of the Range Rover legacy, the new Range Rover Autobiography is the ultimate in Range Rover luxury, craftsmanship and exclusivity and will make its debut at the 2013 Canadian International Auto Show. The all-new Range Rover has a clean and elegant shape which is inspired by a fresh new interpretation of classic Range Rover design cues. While instantly recognizable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle takes a step forward with a bold evolution of the model’s iconic design language. With an all-aluminum unibody structure 39 percent lighter than the steel body in the outgoing model, the Range Rover Autobiography delivers significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with an improvement in fuel economy and reduction in CO2 emissions. A torque-rich Supercharged V8 510 hp engine delivering swift and effortless smooth performance approximately 250kg lighter than the similarly equipped outgoing model, responsive ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, adaptive dynamics suspension system for a refined ride quality and enhanced all-terrain performance with the introduction of a new fully automatic Land Rover “Terrain Response 2 Auto®” system confirm this Range Rover is the embodiment of vehicle luxury.
The XJ is the flagship sedan for Jaguar with innovative aluminum construction for agility, efficiency and refinement. Blending sleek lines of the brand’s new design language with its latest-generation engines and chassis systems, it provides a nearly bespoke-level of interior luxury. Distinguishable from premium luxury competitors by a distinctly sporty driving character and luxury, the XJ uniquely combines traditional Jaguar attention to finishes with advanced user technology.
The XF is Jaguar’s luxury-sport sedan. Fresh off a redesign for the 2012 model year, the Jaguar XF luxury-sport sedan features a major powertrain evolution for 2013. The 2013 XF debuts this model’s first-ever all-wheel drive system.
Jaguar XK Coupe and Convertible
The first car created under the leadership of Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum, the XK Coupe and convertible models typify the Jaguar grand touring performance persona in an ultra-modern sporting car with advanced aluminum construction. Having received major design and luxury revisions for model-year 2012, the Jaguar XK expands its offerings for 2013. The XK line now starts at $98,625 (MSRP) in Coupe and Convertible versions, and tops out with the limited-production, 300 km/h XKR-S. Just 12 XKR-S Coupes and 8 XKR-S Convertibles will be offered in Canada for the 2013 model year. The Jaguar XK models blend the brand’s performance-tuned driving character with superb luxury akin to grand touring cars that cost much more. As an example, all models come standard with the Active Dynamics variable suspension damping along with standard 19-or 20-inch wheels. A choice among 16 paint colours, 10 alloy wheel designs and seven convertible top colours illustrates the range of personal expression the Jaguar XK line offers.
Land Rover LR2
Functionality being a fundamental driver of design at Land Rover, the 2013 LR2 is a premium compact SUV truly designed for on-and-off-road driving conditions. Powered by a new lightweight turbocharged, direct injected 2-litre four-cylinder engine, it is lighter, more powerful and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor. Its new simplified exterior design elements give it a sportier and more purposeful look, while integrating better user technology, increased comfort levels and industry-leading audio from Meridian.
Range Rover Evoque
The Range Rover Evoque was launched to critical acclaim in the 2012 model year. Earning over 120 international awards in its first year, the Range Rover Evoque has been a major success for Land Rover. The Range Rover Evoque is powered by a 240-horsepower turbocharged 2-litre 4-cylinder engine that offers smooth and flexible power delivery. All aluminum alloy construction, direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing endow the Range Rover Evoque engine with excellent drivability and fuel efficiency, while twin balancer shafts ensure smoothness expected in a Range Rover. More than 40 years of expertise in body and chassis systems, four wheel-drive drivelines and multi-terrain technologies have been applied to the Range Rover Evoque, to ensure that it delivers the refined performance and all-weather, multi-surface capability that are hallmarks of the brand.
Land Rover LR4
The Land Rover LR4 is a luxurious all-purpose, all-terrain SUV, available with three-row seating for seven adults. This exclusively V8-powered, high-capability vehicle continues into 2013 with technology updates, along new interior and exterior options, including a striking new Black Design Package. Distinguishing the Land Rover LR4 from competitive luxury SUVs is a blend of on-road comfort and off-road capability, bolstered by a permanent four-wheel drive system with a lockable centre differential and a two-speed transfer case with a low-range and an array of traction-aiding technologies. The LR4 uses integrated body-frame construction, featuring a steel unibody mounted on a rigid boxed full frame.
Range Rover Sport
For 2013, the Range Rover Sport continues as the definitive Sports SUV with new colours and a greater choice of interior trim and alloy wheel designs. An outstanding Range Rover Sport engine line-up remains unchanged for 2013. The naturally aspirated 5.0-litre produces 375HP with 375lb-ft torque and the flagship 5.0-litre Supercharged, a stunning 510HP with 461lb-ft torque. All engines drive through ZF automatic gearboxes.
