2015 Jaguar XF Debuts at New York Motor Show

2015 Jaguar XF Debuts at New York Motor Show 

Following the release of a series of teaser photos in March, Jaguar has officially unveiled its new Jaguar XF at the New York Motor Show.

Built around Jaguar’s latest Aluminium architecture, the second generation XF features a choice of all-new 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, with the option of a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre diesel V6 and a supercharged 3.0-litre petrol V6.

The car’s sleek new look delivers a high level of aero-efficiency, Ian Callum, Jaguar design director commenting, “Aeros play a big part in how we design the car, but it’s a challenge – Jaguar design emanates from soft shapes, but they’re not good for aeros – straight lines and sharp edges are. So we look for a balance, with efficiency.”

Jaguar says that 83% of the car’s parts are new, with the body now 11% lighter and 30% stiffer than the old XF.  The weight savings should contribute to significant improvements in fuel economy and CO2 emissions, the company stating that the 161bhp 2.0-litre diesel will deliver 70mpg-plus and emit just 104g/km of CO2.

Internally, the XF is equipped with the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, featuring a 10.2” touchscreen interface.  The system is powered by a quad-core processor, using an “ultra-fast” ethernet network, which is said to be faster than the XE saloon’s system.  The option of a laser head-up display is also available.

The new XF goes on sale in the UK this autumn, with a starting price of £32,300, and will be offered in Prestige, R-Sport, Portfolio and S specifications – top-end  models receiving Jaguar’s Configurable Dynamics system.
