Jaguar IS Saving the Manuals!



When the XE arrives on North American shores next spring it will do with a strange contraption sticking out of the centre console.

According to Car & Driver the XE will be available with a manual to anyone who wants one. Well that's not quite true. You'll only be able to get one on the entry level XE 25t.

Jaguar has seen some success offering the manual in their F-Type, where it enjoys a 10-20% take rate. Jaguar is banking on similar figures for the XE.

“It is enough to be worth the investment, and we are happy with our decision,” North American CEO Joe Eberhardt told C&D.

But some of the engines don't have the option which some people will be disappointed with.

No surprise here, the usual trend is that basemodels come with an optional manual, just hope power is enough which will help in making this a well rounded package.

I think they should make it so the top end models have manual. The people who want that performance driving experience are the main manual customers now.

I would really love to have a manual transmission with my XE, however, in checking with different Jaguar dealers I found that it was not an option. And that's strange, because I had to order my XE to get the features that I wanted (Prestige, TDI, British Racing Green, etc.), so it wouldn't have been a problem to just install the manual transmission, and I would have paid extra for them to do it. But I was told that the manual transmission on the XE was not tested or certified or something, so there was no way, no how. Otherwise I think I'll be very pleased with my XE when it arrives in February.

Well, I would also prefer the manual transmission. You can really feel the transition from on gear to another. You can shift the speed properly

What do you mean by shift the gear properly?

For all the people that have ever accepted a manual from the dealership when they've bought their cars, I highly doubt that many of them have actually flipped the manuals open. I mean, that's what forums like these are for right? Quick answers from the internet, on the go! Haha!
