Jaguar USA took the XJ luxury sedan to one of the coldest towns on Earth: Yukon, Canada. Along with the dangerously low temperatures, this territory also has some of the planet’s most treacherous roads. In this town, temperatures plummeted to an incredible -32° F, so you can only imagine the driving conditions here. However, for the XJ these conditions were quite easy to handle, and Jag highlighted the entire trip in the above video.

As a reminder, the XJ is offered with four powerful and refined engines, with power ranging from 275 horsepower in the 3.0-liter, V-6 diesel engine and up to 470 horsepower in the 5.0-liter, V-8 gas engine. Prices range from $76,700 in the base version, but it can go up to $112,600 in the Supersport version.

Check out this video to see how the Jaguar XJ handles its 2,000-mile round trip journey to the coldest city on Earth.

The current-generation Jaguar XJ was unveiled in 2011 and since then, Jaguar hasn’t updated the sedan. This is all about to change very soon, as for the 2014 model year, Jag is planning a small revision for the XJ.

Our spy photographers managed to catch the first prototype 2015 XJ out for a testing session in the UK , and as you can see, it will feature only minor updates on the front and rear.

As you can see, only the front and the rear of the revised XJ are camouflaged, meaning that we will see a new front and rear bumper, plus a smaller grille. Rumors suggest that we will see a few updates on the inside and some minor changes under the hood, which will decrease fuel consumption.

We expect the revised Jaguar XJ to be unveiled sometime in early 2014, with Jaguar putting it on sale later that year.

We are pretty sure you already know this, but Chris Harris is by far one of the luckiest guys on Earth, and his latest video shows exactly why. The 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT is limited to only 30 units, with the possibility of a production increase to 50 units, if the demand is high enough. So you can imagine that having the chance to see one is pretty rare, and driving one... Ha, forget about it!

However, in the latest episode of Drive Jag invited Harris to test the $174,000 XKR-S GT. Despite the rainy weather, Harris had a lot of fun driving this special Jaguar around the Nurburgring, as he usual does. You shouldn’t be surprised to hear that Harris was quite impressed by this sports car , even though he found the six-speed automatic gearbox a little outdated.

For those that want to see more of Chris Harris, you can see him whipping the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Alfa Romeo 4C.

Jaguar XF

We’ve known for quite some time now that Jaguar has been hard at work on the next-gen XF . Despite the knowledge, this is the first time we’ve had the chance to catch a mule of the new XF — basically a current XF with the new drivetrain and chassis underneath — testing. Our spy photographers managed to catch this powertrain and chassis mule somewhere outside the Jaguar test center at Nürburgring.

The next XF will offer some major updates over the current model. First and foremost, it will move to a modular, aluminum platform that Jag is calling the iQ(Al) — the same platform also sees use under the BMW 3 Series . This change will make the new XF a lot lighter than the current model, which will make it more nimble and improve its fuel economy.

Under the hood, the engine lineup will range from a brand-new four-cylinder engine to a powerful V-8. The new platform is optimized for all-wheel drive, so we expect to see more AWD Jaguars in the future.

The new XF is expected to be revealed as a concept in 2015 with the production car to arrive in 2016.

The 2014 XJ sedan finally achieves all the potential of this iconic luxury brand with long-wheelbase, all-wheel-drive or even supercharged versions that match buyer priorities and also Jaguar ’s inherent sportiness.

The previous XJ sedans have all been brilliant at one or two of the executive limo buyer’s checklist areas, including style and interior panache. At different times, the previous XJR was hilariously fast and full of roaring character. But never has the XJ offered buyers such a wide swath of excellence in body styles, technology, style and performance.

The XJ really snapped to attention on the sales charts with the 2013 inclusion of a new 3.0-liter, supercharged V-6 and AWD grip near the base $74,000 configuration. This not only catapults the XJ into consideration for Audi and Lexus buyers, but it also improves the previous standard V-8’s mileage stats.

So like a chorus or an orchestra, all the instruments in the Jaguar symphony finally seem to be playing the same some. And it is a catchy tune with the XJ’s beautiful nose and subtle styling that is a perfect match for the ultra-limo segment’s discerning buyers.

A brief sample of the 2014 XJ L 3.0 AWD was enough to take in its liquid curves, attractive nose detailing, and a cabin so full of leather that it smells like the inside of a Burberry purse.

Jay Leno’s clout in the auto industry is well established. That’s one of the perks of being a certified car enthusiast but in the comedian’s case, automakers trip over themselves to get featured in his own auto web show series, Jay Leno’s Garage.

Recently, Jaguar took its turn and it brought along its latest pride and joy, the Jaguar F-Type V8 S . Eric Johnson, vice president of Jaguar Western Region, presented the car to Leno and true to the script, the pair began by talking about the car before Leno does what he seemingly always does: take the F-Type V8 S for a spin. Obviously, a car of the F-Type V8 S’ stature deserves to have some kind of special attention given to it and Leno was quick to point out how impressed he was with its 5.0-liter V-8 engine that produces 495 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

In addition to the F-Type V-8 S, the episode also featured Leno’s drive of another one of Jaguar’s recent builds: the Project 7 Concept. Like we said, this guy really gets all the treats, doesn’t he?

In the latest episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago from Motor Trend gets behind the wheel of a Jaguar XFR-S and pushed it to the limits. The XFR-S is the most powerful, fastest version of the XF-R , and comes as a direct competitor for models like BMW M5.

The XFR-S is powered by a 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 unit that delivers a total of 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. With this amount of power, the XFR-S can easily sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited).

Despite being a V-8 powered car, the Jaguar XFR-S has one big issue; it is a little bit too quiet and Motor Trend — and any car lover — doesn’t like that. Don’t worry too much though, they otherwise loved the XFR-S

Check out the video (above) to see Motor Trend break the XFR-S down.

As the Jaguar product renaissance continues full-steam ahead with the XQ-type crossover’s reveal, there is even more excitement back home with the debut of the Eagle Low Drag GT.

Sharing the lawn with dozens of other priceless exotics, the Eagle Low Drag GT applies the same priceless supercar restoration and upgrade that makes its Speedster such a showstopper.

Finished in gorgeous hand-polished aluminum for the panels and chassis, the Low Drag GT revives one of the most celebrated Jaguar racing concepts ever: a fastback E-type that was wider, more powerful and far more streamlined than any production Jaguar coupe from then or now.

The original E-type was many things during its prime, including a super-rapid, high-speed express that could reach huge top speeds for a fraction of the price of its competition from Italy.

For all this beauty and heritage that flows into the F-type today, the E-type was surprisingly never a truly successful racing machine or a good-looking two-seat coupe.

As Jaguar puts the final touches on the F-type Coupe ahead of its arrival this spring, the Eagle Low Drag GT is the perfect example of Jaguar fastback style.

With pricing likely to be in the seven digits and a total production run of perhaps five cars, the 2013 Eagle Low Drag GT writes a new chapter in the celebrated Jaguar E-type legacy.

Jaguar is getting serious about revamping its image. As with all luxury and premium brands, the desire to be young, cool and sexy is a very powerful draw. Audi has used a similar approach very successfully over the last decade, to now being a global luxury powerhouse with more brand appeal in some sectors than BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Launching a successful luxury expansion takes bold vision, charisma and - most importantly - the right cars to match the brand’s potential. While Audi took a colder and more tech-driven brand identity, Jaguar is going to emotional route to branding itself a sports car specialist.

Jaguar is taking itself into a new arena with some very racy marketing launches for the F-type around the world, including a steamy Playboy collaboration.

Embracing social media, video formats, glamour photography, fashion spreads, everything: the F-type launch is so horny that you can almost smell the perfume wafting out its vents in the Jaguar ’s official videos.

One of these sexually-charged videos stands above the rest, due to its slinky song lyrics, silk sheets and wind machines at a low fan setting. We get to watch Playboy’s 2013 Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun, as her beauty team adds red Chanel lipstick to match her new 2014 F-type roadster.

She then lounges tauntingly in front of her new Jag, given to her as part of the prize for her incredible ... modeling.

She has the bad-girl pout of Lana Del Rey, and the song is just as moody and sinful as her red dresses. Click past the jump to enjoy 90 seconds of passion with 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun and her new Jaguar F-type .
