If you’ve been following Jaguar closely, you know they’re getting rid of some of their line-up in The U.S. In fact, it was just a few hours ago that the demise of the 2021 XF Sportbrake was reported. Now, it seems the XE has joined its cousin and taken a bow in the U.S. market.
“2020 to be the final year in the U.S. for the Jaguar XE sedan,” Jaguar said in a statement as reported by Roadshow. In fact, according to Jaguar customers looking to buy an entry-level Jaguar sedan should now look at the updated XF as it “offers superior value to entry-luxury sedan buyers.”
This means that the new entry-level Jaguar will be the E-Pace crossover. There are no pricing details as of yet for the 2021 model year, but they’re expected soon. However, the 2020 E-Pace starts at $41,000 including a $1,050 destination charge which makes it just $50 more expensive than the outgoing XE.
The move makes sense in a market that continues to favour SUVs and crossovers, however, if you had been saving up specifically for a Jaguar Sedan in the U.S. you’ll have to shell out a bit more as the 2021 XF starts at $45,145 including the $1,150 destination charge.
