Park Place Dealerships revealed the new XE sport sedan and F-Pace SUV at a lavish party in the Status Jet hangar at Addison Airport.
Jaguar is jumping into the hot compact-luxury SUV segment and the F-Pace proves to be well worth the wait. The sporty SUV takes its athletic prowess from the F-Type sports car. And the peppy all-wheel drive crossover does not disappoint. The 2017 XE will be a breath of fresh air to the compact sports sedan enthusiast.
More than 900 Jaguar enthusiasts poured into the hangar to get an opportunity to see both vehicles up close and personal. Guests enjoyed the artistry of Elliott From, who created two original works of art on stage that were later auctioned off to the highest bidder to benefit Wilkinson Center.
During the evening, Park Place Dealerships donated $10,000 to the Wilkinson Center, which transforms the lives of Dallas families struggling with poverty. A check was presented to Wilkinson Center Executive Director Anne Reeder and Vodi Cook, Donor Relations for Wilkinson Center. Park Place Dealerships is the presenting sponsor for the 2016 White Party, benefiting Wilkinson Center, which will be held 9 pm – 2 am at 6500 Cedar Springs in Dallas on Saturday, June 4th. White attire is requested. Tickets are available at http://whiteparty.info.
Flavorful bites from TK Culinary, Kent Rathbun Caterers, Naturally Curly Cook and Lombardi Family Concepts, as well as sweet frozen treats from Berry Naked Pops tantalized guests’ palates throughout the evening. Artful sips from Hendrick’s Gin, Reyka Vodka, Heineken beer, and Sugaire Infused Teas were also enjoyed by guests.
Celebrity Cruises donated an amazing British Open Signature Sailing Experience, which includes a 12-night all-inclusive cruise with tickets to the premier golfing event as a raffle prize, which was won by Mark & Nancy Craiker. Proceeds from the raffle were also donated to Wilkinson Center.
The F-Pace 35t starts at $43,385 MSRP; while an S model weighs in at $57,695 with a choice of a 3.0 Liter 340 hp V-6 or a 380 hp turbocharged V-6. The 20d 2.0 Liter diesel will be available this fall, starting at $41,985. All feature the legendary Jaguar growl that will turn heads at the soccer fields.
Starting at $40,000 MSRP, the XE will offer a 180 hp diesel or a supercharged V-6 in the XE S. The extensive use of aluminum in the construction kept the sedan light and responsive, while the strategic placement of the steel towards the middle and rear of the car keeps it steady in tight curves. In short, the XE is a fun car to drive.
