Redesigned from the ground up using Jaguar aluminum-intensive architecture, the Jaguar XF delivers better proportions, more interior space and a progressive, highly streamlined form.
The 2016 Jaguar XF features a more vertical front end, shorter front overhang, longer wheelbase and new rear quarter windows. Mirroring the evolution of the Jaguar design language, the sleek, coupe-like profile, long hood with deep power bulge and the short front overhang make the XF stand apart from the crowd.
Steering response and on-center feel are among the most important attributes that define the Jaguar dynamic driving DNA. One of the key enablers to this is the tuning potential of electric power-assisted steering (EPAS). From filters which damp unwanted disturbances caused by road surface irregularities to algorithms which compensate for changes in ambient temperature — EPAS has a lot to offer.
Enthusiasts demanding the most involving driving experience now have the choice of the Jaguar free-revving 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine in 340-hp and 380-hp ratings — equipped with either rear- or all-wheel drive. The all-new Jaguar XF is available with one of two specifically-optimized eight-speed automatic ZF transmissions.
Another technology proven first on F-TYPE and now standard on the all-new XF is Torque Vectoring by Braking. On corner entry, lightly braking the inner wheels individually can mitigate understeer and help the driver to take the ideal line.
