How Good are Jaguar Vehicles for Towing?
Jaguar is an iconic British luxury vehicle company that has achieved global acclaim for its impressive range of high end cars. This acclaim is a far cry from the company's beginnings in the world of motorcycles.
In 1922 the Swallow Sidecar Company was founded by motorcycle enthusiasts William Lyons and William Walmsley. It was a moderately successful company but in 1934 Walmsley wanted to sell-out. In order for Lyons to purchase Walmsley’s half he had to form a new company S.S. Cars Limited so he could raise capital by selling shares.
The Jaguar name first appeared in September 1935 as a model name on a SS 2 ½ L sports saloon. A later two seater version would become known as the SS jaguar 100. If anyone is taking note of the initials for the company's cars and the general timeframe you may see a problem coming in the company's future.
In March of 1945 with the second world war still raging the shareholders of S.S. Cars had a meeting to discuss a name change. The connotation of the SS initials was obviously very negative due to a notable Nazi connection.
The shareholders voted to rename S.S. Cars as Jaguar Cars Limited. The official word from chairman William Lyons was "Unlike S. S. the name Jaguar is distinctive and cannot be connected or confused with any similar foreign name."
After the war demand was high for Jaguar cars, the problem being that steel was in short supply and these cars needed that material for their bodies. It would take a few years for the company to catch back up but they were again churning out classics like the Jaguar XK120 and the XK140.
These early post war cars were sporty and eye-catching creating the archetypal image of a jaguar that most of us have.
So from this British sports car company could there possibly be anything that could pull a trailer if needed? Well if we are talking about the classic jaguars, how dare you even consider it?! They are to be polished, looked at and driven with a smile on your face. When it comes to modern Jaguars however it is a different story.
Jaguar still makes beautiful sports cars but it has branched out somewhat as well into differing types, one of which is an SUV. The Jaguar F-Pace is a powerful and fast SUV which can tow up to 5,291 lbs. and has a coupling point nose weight of 220 lbs.
It is safe to say that most of what Jaguar makes and has made isn’t intended for towing anything but they do offer you some options. Always check with your dealer and see whether or not the Jaguar you are interested in might have a towing capability and whether it needs anything added to make that work.
