The Jaguar XF is a executive luxury sports sedan which replaces the S-Type. Although it is a mid-size luxury car which competes with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6, it significantly moves Jaguar upmarket with prices ranging between $68,000 to $110,000, more than stepping into its older brother, the Jaguar XJ's, territory. The car is developed in Coventry and built in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, U.K.

Recent Changes[]

  • In 2011, Jaguar teamed up with one of its UK dealers to create the 50 unit limited edition XFR Stratstone Le Mans Limited Edition. Available in Polaris White and Midnight Black, the car features a black grille with a color-coded trim, twin chrome-finished bonnet louvers with supercharged script, 20-inch gloss black rims with red center caps and Jaguar R brakes, personalized sill plaques, leather headrests, a piano black veneer with dark mesh aluminum for the dashboard, a soft-grain leather finish with contrast stitching for the instrument panel and a Stratstone Le Mans badge for the gear selector. Each of the 50 cars are also specially numbered. Proceeds of up to £5000 will be donated to the Royal British Legion.
  • For 2011, Jaguar unveiled a new styling kit for the XF, called the Black Pack. Available on the XF Diesel S, 5.0 litre V8 petrol and XFR models, the £950 package brings with it 20-inch Draco alloys, painted in dark grey, gloss black grille and window surrounds and a choice of several exterior colors. For an even more dramatic effect, customers can pair the Black Pack with the XF Aerodynamic Pack on Diesel S models. Launched earlier this year, the latter includes a re-profiled front bumper, black mesh inserts for the grille, lower air intakes and side sills borrowed from the XFR.[1]

  • Jaguar updates the XF lineup for the 2009 Detroit Auto Show with the introduction of the long-awaited, range-topping XFR sports sedan. Aimed to go head to head with the likes of the BMW M5, Audi RS6 and Merc E63 AMG, the new feral feline will be the first production Jag to break the 500 hp mark since the XJ220 from 18 years ago courtesy of a new supercharged version of the venerable Jag AJV8 engine displacing 5.0 litres. The total output is 510 bhp @ 6000-6500 rpm and 461 lb-ft of torque @ 2500-5500 rpm which is good enough to propel the car from naught to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and Jaguar smack dab into the 21st Century.The top speed of the car is 155 mph (250 km/h).Equipped with the Speed&Black Package reaches 174 mph (280 km/h) default.[2][3]
  • Jaguar auctions the very first production XF, a 2.7 Diesel, on September 7, 2007 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, UK with all earnings donated to The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). On hand for the event is new opera singing trio Elysium (pictured below). The new owner gets to choose the color options for the vehicle with advice from Jag's CoD, Ian Callum as well as visit the Castle Bromwich factory in Birmingham to see his XF being built.

Unique Attributes[]

If there are any features of this vehicle that sets it apart from other vehicles in its class, then mention those unique attributes here.



RHD Jaguar XFR interior.

Due to the efforts of Jaguar's Principal Interior designer, Alister Whelan, the Jaguar XF's interior marks a distinct departure from conservative Jaguar "acres-of-wood" British interior to what he calls "...a very contemporary space". Highly modern, the once-dominant Jaguar dashboard motif of employing extensive wood paneling makes way for an expanse of geometric and sculpted aluminum anchored by only a small sliver of wood trimming. With laser-like Phosphor blue halo lighting now accenting all instrumentation, the dashboard fascia finds itself dominated by a 7-inch Multimedia/Navigation screen that acts as a centralized command post. It is flanked by rotating air-vents that hide into the dash when the vehicle is turned off. The "acres-of-wood" itself can now be found in unlikely places that defy traditional interior design norms (at times, recalling the interiors of the R-Coupe and RD-6 concept cars) and definitely make ailing Jaguar's point known that they are spearheading to the future regardless.

By far, however, the car's undeniably cool showpiece is its innovative JaguarDrive gear selector: a silver rotating knob (similar only in appearance to Audi's MMI, BMW's iDrive or Mercedes-Benz's COMAND) found on the center console that controls the Automatic transmission's setting. Upon switching off the vehicle, the knob recedes flush into the console and upon turning the car back on, it pops back up again.

The rest of the interior is swathed in different combinations of perforated and non-perforated Bond Grain and Softgrain leather. Finished with twin-needle stitching, the color palette range from subdued traditional Jag (Ivory/Oyster) to the avant-garde (Spice/Charcoal). While whatever wood there is can be had in three choices; namely, Satin American Walnut, Burl Walnut and straight-grained Rich Oak.

Current Generation (2015-present)[]


The XF is an evolution of the original J-Blade design pioneered in the X250 XF, with a largely similar silhouette. Effort was made to build a uniform design language across Jaguar's saloon range.

The X260 XF uses 83 percent all-new parts compared with the previous model.[6] The car is 7 millimetres (0.3 inches) shorter than the predecessor.[7][8] Bodywork uses aluminium as the primary component of the body structure and chassis; the XF's bodyside panel is a single aluminium pressing.

The chassis featured a fully independent suspension, including multiple "modes" in the S model providing either maximum comfort, maximum performance, or a setting in between. The standard model in the USA featured a P250 247 HP Ingenium engine. Optional power included the P300 296 HP turbo 4 and the P380 380 HP supercharged V6 for the performance-oriented S model. Diesel engines, while available in other markets, were not available to customers in North America.

The Sportbrake (estate) bodystyle was unveiled in 2012.[9] The Sportbrake was introduced for sale in the USA in 2018 where it was positioned as a competitor for other high performance "station wagons." It was initially available only in S trim for North America, with the high performance F-Type 3.0L supercharged 380 HP engine and all wheel drive. The XF S in sportbrake trim was able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.0 seconds.[10]

First Generation: (2008–2015)[]

Jaguar-XF 2009 04small

The XF was developed at Jaguar's Whitley design and development HQ in Whitley, Coventry and was built at Castle Bromwich Assembly facility in Birmingham.

Initially, the XF was planned to use an all aluminium platform but due to time constraints put by Jaguar's board on the development team, the X250 makes use of a heavily modified Ford DEW98 platform.

The XF was launched at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show,[8][9] following the public showing of the C-XF concept in January 2007 at the North American International Auto Show. Customer deliveries commenced in March 2008,[10] with a range of V6 and V8 engines.

Designed by Jaguar's design director Ian Callum,[12] the styling incorporates an oval mesh grille recalling the original XJ of 1968. The boot lid retained the S-Type's chromed blade to its edge and included a "leaper" hood ornament.

The XF was launched with a variety of trims called, depending on country, 'SE', 'Luxury', 'Premium Luxury' (or 'Premium'), 'Portfolio' (or 'Premium Portfolio'), 'SV8' (or 'Supercharged') and 'R'. For the UK market, company car-friendly 'Executive Edition' and 'SE Business' models with a lower tuned versions of the 3.0 L and 2.2 L diesel engines respectively were available.

The interior included air conditioning vents which are flush-fitting in the dash, rotating open once the engine is started, and a rotating gearshift dial, marketed as JaguarDrive Selector, which automatically elevates from the centre console.[13] Another departure from the traditional Jaguar cabin ambiance is the use of pale-blue backlighting to the instruments, switchgear, and around major control panels. Some minor systems, such as the interior lighting, are controlled by touching the light covers. The glove compartment also opens to the touch. The XF has no cloth interior option, with all trim levels featuring leathers. Wood veneers are available along with aluminium, carbon fibre and piano black lacquer trims.

XFR (2009–2015)[]

The XFR was announced at Detroit's North American International Auto Show in January 2009 as a new performance derivative of the XF range, and featured the new 5.0-litre supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III engine rated at 510 PS (375 kW; 503 hp), a revised front bumper and spoiler and 20-inch (508 mm) alloy wheels.[14][15]

Facelift (2011)[]

In April 2011, Jaguar revealed the details of a facelift for the XF at the New York International Auto Show, with manufacturing beginning in July 2011.

The facelift includes front and rear styling changes which are based on the original Jaguar C-XF concept car, internal trim enhancements, adaptive cruise control, and a new four-cylinder 187 hp (139 kW; 190 PS) 450 N⋅m (332 lb⋅ft) 2.2-litre diesel engine, which is combined with a new eight-speed automatic transmission and stop-start technology to emit 149 g/km CO2 and fuel consumption of 52.3 mpg‑imp (5.40 L/100 km; 43.5 mpg‑US).[17]


An R-S version of the XF was confirmed in 2012 following an image released shortly before the Los Angeles Auto Show. It uses the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine as the Jaguar XKR-S.

The engine is rated at 550 PS (542 hp; 405 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 680 N⋅m (502 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The XFR-S has a 0–97 km/h (60 mph) time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph). The XFR-S differs from the XFR as it has bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels, wider front grills and carbon fibre. The front grills aid aerodynamic efficiency as does the large rear wing and rear diffuser.


  • The XF has gone on sale in the UK as early as late 2007, while the North American market has to wait until March 2008.

Design quirks and oddities[]

The Jaguar XF's body is made out of high-strengh steel instead of aluminium.
