The all-new Jaguar XF has been revealed during a dramatic high-wire water crossing in the heart of London’s business district.
The new XF, which makes its global motor show debut in New York on April 1, will make use of Jaguar’s new Ingenium engine range. The 2-liter Ingenium diesel engines are available in 163ps/380Nm and 180ps/430Nm ratings, and are offered with specially-optimized 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions. In 163ps manual form, the new XF delivers 104g/km CO2 and is the lightest, most efficient non-hybrid diesel model in the segment – 80kg lighter than its closest competitor.
All other engines are matched exclusively to 8-speed automatic transmissions. The XF will also be available with Jaguar’s 3-liter V6 twin-turbo diesel, which benefits from a host of advanced technologies that boost efficiency and refinement still further, and raises output to 300ps and 700Nm of torque. Also available is the renowned 3-liter V6 supercharged petrol engine with 380ps and 450Nm torque.
As with XE, rear-wheel drive ability is enhanced too. All-Surface Progress Control, developed for low-speed driving in adverse conditions, automatically manages the brakes and the throttle to deliver the best possible traction, enabling the car to pull away smoothly and without drama: the driver only has to steer.
The all-new aluminum-intensive Jaguar XF will be manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich Plant alongside the all-aluminum F-Type and XJ.
