[2020 Edition] Current Jaguar Model Lineup

Everything You Need to Know About 2020 Jaguar Performance Models Including Prices, Specs & Reviews

Updated: January 8th, 2020

2020 Jaguar XE SV Project 8Jaguar continues to command a respectable audience worldwide when it comes to its status as an automotive incarnate of British luxury vehicles. It is a name that still resonates with those who appreciate the distinguishable taste of driveable opulence that is concocted north of the English channel.

West of the Atlantic however, the brand has struggled to be a fixture in North America in spite of some promising sales figures in the world’s largest market over the last few years. Most European marques – not least of all the British ones – continue to cater to an extremely niche demographic on the continent. Understanding, perhaps now more than ever, that the US market provides the greatest opportunities for growth, Jaguar has refreshed the majority of their lineup for 2020.
Facelifted for the 2020 model year, the Jaguar F-Type is the only true sports car in the lineup and is expected to shoulder the responsibility of generating the wow-factor and buzz that the brand desperately needs to make an impact. The F-Type is scheduled for a redesign which could come in the form as an early 2021 model, so perhaps that impact is going to be at least that far off.

Jaguar’s F-Pace crossover is the primary breadwinner for the company, accounting for close to half of Jaguar’s total vehicle unit sales in the US, and there is no doubt that the British automaker will continue to rely on the model to grow its market share. The outgoing and iconic Jaguar XJ is set to be replaced – as opposed to being succeeded – by a new sedan model that is rumored to be more akin to competition for the Tesla Model S, than a predictable reboot of an old classic.

This industry-wide transition towards EVs will also mean that the Jaguar I-Pace will become more significant than ever for the automaker. Released in late 2018, it has yet to create waves, though the evolving landscape should present more opportunities for it to thrive. Still yet to shake off its reputation for producing cars with less-than-perfect build quality and issues with reliability, Jaguar will hope that a refreshed lineup, a renewed focus, and a reignited ambition will take the brand where it needs to go.

Here is the complete ‘High-Performance’ range of Jaguar cars for 2020.
