January 2009

XF and XFR 2010 MY were announced

Changes for the 2010 Model Year include the launch of the new luxurious Portfolio model on 20" wheels. It also features all-new petrol engines and new diesel engines. The XFR is powered by the all-new supercharged 510bhp V8 with acceleration from 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds making it the ultimate Jaguar sport saloon. A naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8, producing 385bhp, powers other V8 XF models.

Distinguished by unique exterior and interior design features, the XFR includes revised bumpers and lower front air intakes, sill extensions, bonnet louvres and grilles, four tailpipes, a boot-lid spoiler, unique seats and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The new XF 3.0-litre diesel features a twin sequential turbocharged engine available as the 275bhp/600Nm S or a 240bhp/500Nm version. Both offer exceptional efficiency and refinement and in the case of the Diesel S accelerates from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds.

With 275bhp the new XF 3.0-litre diesel S is 33 per cent more powerful than the 2.7-litre TDV6 it replaces. Torque peaks at a substantial 600Nm, with 61 per cent more torque available from 1500rpm. Every new engine for the XF range has highly competitive fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures. Both diesel versions deliver combined average fuel consumption of 42.0mpg – an improvement on the 2.7-litre engine of nearly 12 percent – and a CO2 of 179g/km.

The 275bhp high-performance XF Diesel S model is significantly enhanced, taking features from the XFR model to provide drivers with superior driving dynamics, a more striking appearance and an upgraded interior which offers the ultimate in sporting luxury. XFR derived interior as standard while the Adaptive Dynamics system, currently featured on the XFR and XK range, is available as an option.

May 2010

Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics system is featured in one of the two new option packs which are available exclusively on the XF Diesel S in to further enhance the driver's enjoyment of the performance characteristics of this car – the Dynamics Pack and the Aerodynamic Pack.

The Dynamics Pack incorporates the Adaptive Dynamics system. This system analyses chassis movement and driver and wheel inputs 500 times every second, continually adjusting the suspension to improve handling without loss of comfort. This optional pack also includes Shadow or Silver finish 20-inch Volans five-spoke alloy wheels, and costs from £1250 depending on model.

The Aerodynamic Pack is designed to give bolder style to the XF Diesel S. The striking new black mesh inserts for the grille and lower air intakes give a fresh look to the front of the car and for even greater visual impact, the sculpted lower air intake blades can be supplied with bright-white LED daytime running lights. The side sills from an XFR complete the package.

Enhancements to the MY11 Diesel S are completed by the interior, which now features the superior specification from the XFR as standard, providing the 275bhp diesel model with the ultimate sporting luxury interior. The upgraded cabin includes the leather sports seats from the XFR, featuring 18-way adjustment for the driver and 14-way for the passenger. Power adjusted raised side bolsters will keep driver and passenger firmly in place during cornering, while the rest of the cabin's sporting style is enhanced with the high-gloss Piano Black veneer and Jet Suedecloth headlining available as an option on Premium Luxury and Portfolio Diesel S models.

Polaris White is a new colour for the MY11 XF range, replacing Porcelain. Red brake callipers are also available to order as a no cost option on XFR models and black mesh inserts for the grille also become standard on the XFR and Diesel S.

November 2010

Jaguar XF Black Pack announced

Featuring menacing dark-grey 20-inch Draco alloy wheels with diamond turned rims, a gloss black grille and gloss black window surrounds, the XF Black Pack is available on XF Diesel S, the 5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and XFR models, with prices starting at £950.

To provide added exclusivity and to maximise the visual impact, XF Black Pack vehicles can only be specified with a special colour palette chosen by Jaguar designers, including Polaris White, Spectrum Blue, Ultimate Black, Stratus Grey, Lunar Grey and Liquid Silver, plus Kyanite Blue and Salsa Red which are colours unique to the XFR.

For an even more dramatic effect, the Black Pack can be combined with the XF Aerodynamic Pack which was launched on XF Diesel S earlier in 2010. This pack includes a re-profiled front bumper, striking black mesh inserts for the grille and lower air intakes and the muscular side sills from the XFR.

April 2011

2012 XF unveiled

With fresh styling, advanced new technologies and an innovative entry-level powertrain that promises to make it the most efficient Jaguar yet produced.

Key to the changes is a new look for the XF. Drawing on the latest Jaguar "design language" applied to the XJ, the new XF features an all-new look to the front end with slim new headlight units set into which are distinctive LED lighting strips sitting either side of a larger, more upright grille. A lower bonnet line complete with a pronounced, wider power bulge running down the centre lends the XF a purposeful stance emphasised by a new look to the lower bumper section complete with a trio of airdams, the outside pair of which are now intersected by twisted chrome fins.

Further back, a pair of subtle new vents are mounted to the front wings complete with Jaguar script set into the chrome strip. At the rear of the car the tail lamp units have been redesigned with LED technology being employed, while the units themselves now extend further into the boot lid with a new chrome blade sitting below a simple Jaguar leaper badge.

The interior of the XF has been given a subtle refresh with a restyled steering wheel joining revised switchgear for the ventilation systems and all-new colour central and dial-mounted screens relaying reprogrammed navigation and entertainment software. Redesigned seats offer a new look and greater support while fresh trim finishes ensure the XF's award-winning interior still sets the benchmark in its class.

Significant changes take place under the skin of the new XF with a four cylinder engine available for the first time. The 2.2-litre common rail diesel unit, installed in a north-south configuration, develops 190 PS and 332 lbs ft of torque and is linked to a new eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox and an innovative Stop-Start system – marking the first time such a device has been fitted to a Jaguar. The result is combined economy in excess of 50 mpg and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.

The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines continue in 240 PS standard and 275 PS Diesel S form while the petrol range comprises of a pair of V8 engines developing 385 PS and, in supercharged XFR form, a substantial 510 PS.

High performance Diesel S models benefit from a host of upgrades including full aerodynamic styling, adaptive dynamic suspension (as on XFR) and an 'R' performance interior.

The range-topping XFR takes the new look adopted by the XF a step further with a trio of deep airdams dominating the front of the car with a set of cooling vents set into the bonnet either side of the power bulge. New sill extensions run down the side of the car framed by redesigned 20-inch wheels. At the rear the new lights sit above a redesigned bumper complete with a subtle diffuser.

Across the new XF range advances have been made in refinement with active engine mounts (diesels) and new sound deadening material featuring on the car as well as redesigned wing mirrorsto reduce wind noise. The result is a car that sets new benchmarks in the suppression of road noise.

The new XF went on sale in September 2011 with prices starting at £30,950 for the 2.2-litre diesel engine rising to £65,350 for the XFR.

January 2012

2.2d XF launched

A new 163 PS version the 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine, is set to be launched aimed at delivering greater value than ever before. Drawing on the strengths of the existing 190PS model, an example of which recently crossed the United States averaging 62.9 mpg, the new, lower output derivative of the 2.2-litre engine will mean the XF range now starts at £29,950 OTR fot the XF SE Business model.

Jaguar’s XFR sports saloon has just got even faster with the introduction of a new optional Speed Pack. Featuring a speed limiter raised to 174mph, the 510PS XFR Speed Pack car is equipped with revised engine and gearbox calibration to match the increased top speed. A new front aero splitter and a new rear wing distinguish the Speed Pack car.

The 510PS XFR sports saloon benefits from the same combination of eight-speed automatic gearbox and Intelligent Stop/Start allowing it to offer an unrivalled blend of efficiency and excitement.
