Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Editor's note: Full details on the 2014 Jaguar XJR are not yet available. What follows is a premlinimary report on the 2014 Jaguar XJR. Check back later for full details.
Topping the XJ range is the new XJR, which Jaguar says is the most powerful XJ it has ever produced. Powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making 550 horsepower and 502 pounds-feet of torque, the 2014 is considerably more powerful than the 2013 model. That power is channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing the new XJR to do zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds, with a top speed of 174 mph. Standard are 20-inch forged alloy wheels, and styling enhancements include a new front air splitter, special rocker sills, and a unique front spoiler and hood vents. A glossy black mesh grille with chrome trim furthers its more aggressive look. Inside, there's a Jet Black suede headliner and R-exclusive black leather sport seats with ivory, tan or red inserts and contrast stitching; R logos are also embossed into the seats. An 18-speaker Meridian sound system is standard.
