I Had No Idea These Were Sold In The US
This Autotrader listing popped up in my FB feed. I had no idea that these X-Type Estates were even sold in the US. I’m assuming they aren’t very common at all.
It does look nice. I like the dark red, on tan interior. Here’s the ad. https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=565852982&listingTypes=USED&startYear=2005&makeCode1=JAG&modelCode1=XTYPE&sem=1&LNX=DRMEDSOCFBRMKTCARRESEARCH&fbclid=IwAR3IdqIcUowDYocLbi1dSBnIPLHZB3InZVJuFT4HsgBmX8g6DJJwua-LCP4

Pretty hefty wagon tax too! Other 2005s listed for sale are 5k to 6k.

@hfv They're pretty rare, and a lot more expensive than their sedan counterparts. We even got a few manual wagons. IIRC the US-Market estates basically all came with every option

@hfv If I had the garage space this would be very tempting. For $9k I may have to wait though. Seems about market for these though. Miss my XF sometimes, got more comments on that thing than any other car I've owned outside the 911.

@hfv Yep. I didn't realize they were a thing either until I moved to the Bay Area and I saw a couple on my commute repeatedly... Or maybe it was the same one on a few different days. Who knows.
Never saw a single one in the Mid West. Never saw one when I lived on California's Central Coast either. Had to move to the bay to spot one.

Whoa, that's a heck of a unicorn in the states. Since these were essentially fancy Fords, do they have the traditional jaguar reliability problems?

I always thought the front of these was too small for the rest of the car, like it all narrows down to a point. There is something with the proportions I don't really like that feels forced or cheap. The specs are not very impressive either, as it's both slow and heavy. I'd look elsewhere were it my money. Low volume does equal rarity but it doesn't automatically mean it has any value. Could just be that the the 1600 people who bought one were wrong.

There used to be a video of a kid getting dragged on a snowsled behind an X Type jag here in the states. They are rare, even more rare with a stick. Having driven an X Type, they aren't worth owning.

@dieseldub Indeed, I never realized they were so rare because I regularly see a couple a month in this area!

The X-Type is the best Jaguar ever sold here. It's a wagon, which is awesome, and has the cat on the hood
Jaguar luxury and prestige, and built ford tuff
And yes, the X-Type is too a real Jaguar! (is tomslick on here?)
@rctothefuture I’ve never driven an X but I drove and S type and wasn’t at all impressed. It was better than your average American car from the time, but not substantially
