Motor car enthusiasts look up to this brand with respect – and why not? Aside from its beauty and performance, it is one of the symbols of status with its price tag. The Jaguar was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley, two motorcycle enthusiasts. They named their company Swallow Sidecar Company. It was only in 1945 that the name Jaguar was taken on by the whole company.
Five years later, Jaguar had it made when a series of sports cars and saloons were released. These were as stylish and as elegant as can be. Since then, the company has had several mergers and is now considered a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. This is a quite interesting thing as what was originally purely British has become part of an American group. Despite this fact, however, the Jag remains as prestigious as it was way back when it began.
Jaguar has had several notable models, with the current ones being very much sought after by many car enthusiasts all over the world. The current models are:
Model US Type Price Range
XJ full-size luxury sedan $64,250 – $116,000
S-Type Executive luxury sedan $46,500 – $66,500
X-Type luxury entry level luxury sedan and wagon $33,500 – $37,500
XK sports car/Coupé/Convertible $75,500 – $93,000
As you can see, the price range of the different models is well into the luxury car range. Though it is not that rare to see a Jag on the streets of various cities worldwide, it is still not common to see one.
