THIS I have to say is Music to my ears!!Ford-derived, 2.0-liter Turbo (same engine you can get in the XF and the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Evoque) and the familiar 340-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V-6. Jag is going to wait until the volume engines are both all-new before launching in the biggest, most profitable market.
The Porsche GT3 might have Jag's EPAS solution licked in terms of outright wowza, but I've never felt electrically assisted power steering of this caliber on a sports sedan. It's not only that the steering is weighted just about perfectly, but the feel stays excellent all the way through a corner, and that's no small feat. Jaguar made a point to emphasize that it waited years before offering up an EPAS solution because it wanted to make sure it met the brand's reputation for sportiness. To me, that initially sounded like typical marketing BS. Thing is, the steering is revelatory. They might actually be telling the truth!
