In 1971, Jaguar launched what would be the third variation of its long-running XKE line of sports cars. The release of the 1971 Jaguar XKE also marked the availability of the new 5.3-litre, V12 engine and the use of upgraded brakes and standard power steering. Those who purchased the 1971 XKE also appreciated the new styling changes that occurred during this model-year. During this time, Jaguar made the decision to stop producing the short wheelbase Fixed Head Coupe and focused primarily on the convertible and 2+2 Coupe. Aesthetically, the 1971 also offered a large cross-slatted front grill, flared wheel arches, and a unique badge on the rear that signified the V12 engine. 1971 also became the first year that the Roadster was available with an automatic transmission, and many of today’s buyers consider that model a great find. There were a few changes inside the cabin of the 1971 XKE as well. These included new reclining seats, new door panels, a plastic center console, and a new steering wheel to replace the wood-trimmed steering wheel on the previous models.
