That’s the new Jaguar XF, now in the traditional atmosphere of the, uh, a tightrope over the River Thames.
We are not really sure why the second generation of fighting Jag sedan 5 Series was released on the ropes over the Thames. Something we hope to do with emphasizing new, lighter, more structure-more-intensive aluminum XF MkII, but as a space for a new rival to the airline Emirates.
For the new big brother to the new light XE it is, in fact. The use of 75 percent of aluminum in its construction, Jag has managed to shave 190kg curb weight of the distinctive XF while improving torsional rigidity.
The second generation XF is shorter and lower than its predecessor fraction and slippier Jag says a drag coefficient of only 0.26 and 80 kg curb weight below anything else in its class.
It will be economical, too. The new XF gets a choice of JLR modular range of diesel engines “Ingenium” Start with a pair of 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder 178bhp outputs of 161bhp. Equipped with the manual six standard speeds – not a car eight-speed is also available – is officially back 70mpg, and CO2 emissions of 104g / km paid Jag is a leading figure in its class for a non-hybrid.
There is a revised version of JLR 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo diesel and 376bhp to 516 pounds stonking pair Again ft.
The black pump aversion use a choice of three petrol options: A two-liter turbo four and Jag doing familiar 237bhp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 335bhp and 375bhp flavors.
No Crying V8 for now, but you would be a fool to bet against an appearance at some point.
As before, the rear-wheel drive is standard XF, but in its updated version of F-Type will be available – in some markets at least – with all-wheel drive. Also known as Type F, you can have the XF with adaptive damping and pack Jag ‘Configurable Dynamics.
Jaguar XF advertised as the “most advanced” car has ever offered, highlighting its 10.2-inch touch screen and serious computing power. Here’s hoping that available information and entertainment the game together moves by JLR as it dropped a department of the company, the British behind his German rival in recent years.
No word on pricing yet, but we hope it will remain similar to the outgoing car, the base diesel from 30,000 euros. The XF will be built at the Castle Bromwich plant JLR, with the first cars to land in the fall of this year.
Register for more revealing take on the New York Show next week based on land. Calculating that has what it takes to mix it with a 5 Series and E-Class, not for the Audi A6, Passat, Lexus GS, Infiniti Q70, etc, etc, etc mentioned?
