The company is launching an 18 city U.S. tour to reestablish the storied British brand among luxury consumers in a new modern context. The multi-day brand event, called the "Jaguar ALIVE Driving Experience," invites consumers to learn about and drive the company's full model line-up with professional drivers, view heritage Jaguar vehicles and fully experience the brand in a dynamic setting.
