Ann Arbor - The Jaguar S-type was one of the most keenly anticipated new
cars of the past decade. The baby Jag, as it was universally referred to
(before the name was announced, anyway), would bring the leaping-cat cachet
to a much wider audience, one that was eager for Jaguar's almost mystical
combination of Olde English snob appeal wrapped in sexy, feline sheetmetal.
Since it went on sale midway through 1999, the S-type has been a commercial
success, nearly doubling the marque's sales. But, while the public has
rushed to embrace it, critics have scrutinized the S-type because it's the
first Jaguar to share its platform with a Ford Motor Company product (the
Lincoln LS). Although all S-types are assembled at Castle Bromwich,
England, the car was engineered with Ford. Ardent Jaguar fans were
concerned that the S-type could be something less than a true Jaguar
because of that.
Turns out that the under-the-skin commonality with Lincoln was handled
adroitly. The two cars drive differently, and the S-type feels like a
Jaguar. But after twelve months and 30,000 miles with a sapphire-blue
S-type 4.0, count us among those who see elsewhere in the S-type a veneer
of Britishness, of Jaguarness, that in places appears thin.
Take, for instance, that feline sheetmetal. Start at the front--no subtlety
here with the oval grille and four round headlights. By and large, it
works. "The Jag is an absolute hit with the general public," reported
associate editor Joe DeMatio after a trip to his mid-Michigan hometown.
"They know it's a Jaguar and are very excited about it."
To our eyes, though, the side is entirely too busy, with too many character
lines. More than one staffer likened the main crease along the door handles
to that of a Chevy Lumina. That's like suggesting the queen wears army
But it was the interior that came in for the most criticism. Jaguar has
always had a special knack for interiors, which invariably are likened to a
men's club. When one contributing writer described the S-type's atmosphere
as "more pub than club," it was a cute way of saying it falls short of the
traditional Jaguar standards. It's hard not to think that the S-type
interior shows what happens when the idea of British luxury gets refracted
by the Dearborn "glass house" that is Ford Motor Company's world
headquarters and then blurred further by myopic MBAs who can't see past the
next quarter's bottom line. "There's none of the detailing and
craftsmanship that made Jag interiors so nice," said executive editor Mark
Gillies, who's been riding in Jaguars since he was a lad in short pants.
Whatever one thinks of the way the interior looks, there is no getting
around its lack of storage space (which is somewhat alleviated for 2001
with the CD changer's move from the glove box to the trunk) or its tight
accommodations overall. On a happier note, seating comfort generally
received good reviews, even on long drives.
Extended road trips demonstrated just how much the S-type coddled its
captain and crew and how eagerly it gobbled up the miles. With 281 horsepower and 287
pound-feet of torque, the 4.0-liter V-8 never wants for power, either on
the highway or in town. Despite a slow-shifting transmission, it provides
the kind of smooth, effortless thrust that really does bring to mind those
images from the Discovery Channel where the live jaguar sprints across the
Yucatan to chomp down on some hapless wild pig. We'd say the V-8 is beyond
reproach, but it was sometimes a little lazy starting on cold mornings, and
its short cruising range was appreciated only by true devotees of service
station architecture Part of the S-type's seductive quality on road trips,
long or short, was its accomplished blend of a responsive chassis and a
creamy ride. Helping our car's double-wishbone suspension achieve this feat
was Jaguar's optional CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension), which
automatically switches the dampers between soft and firm settings.
Unfortunately, as the miles accumulated, the ride became noticeably ragged,
with the S-type transmitting an un-Jaguar-like amount of impact harshness
to the cabin. In addition, the brakes always felt undersized, requiring
more pedal pressure and travel than we would have liked. The steering,
however, was spot-on in its quickness and effort. Curiously, for 2001,
Jaguar has switched to a ZF power steering unit, which the company says
improves steering feel and isolation. We drove a 2001 model, and, despite
those contradictory claims, the steering felt pretty much the same, but
that's fine with us.
