Jaguar has confirmed that its venerable XK range will go into retirement later this year, after eight years on the job.

Available in Coupe and Convertible forms across a number of trim and performance levels, the XK has accounted for some 54,000 sales since its debut in 2006.

Global XK figures dropped to just 4000 last year however, thanks in part to an overall decline in luxury ‘grand tourer’ sales - along with the model’s age and the arrival of the new F-Type.

In 2013, the F-Type Roadster was joined by the new F-Type Coupe, further diminishing the case for a larger ‘GT’.

Jaguar says the move to retire the XK is part of a “wider strategic vision and product planning cycle”, but with the new XE sedan about to enter production and the C-X17 SUV on the way, it is unclear if a direct replacement for the XK will come about.

New XF and XJ models will also be on the horizon, keeping Jaguar’s limited production capacity tied up.

A new XK isn’t completely off the table however, with reports suggesting that senior heads in Jaguar remain interested in a flagship 2+2 coupe that can compete with Aston Martin’s larger models (and the coming next-gen Aston range).
