Jaguar Land Rover has revealed the all-new the second-generation Jaguar XF ahead of its global motor show debut at the 2015 New York International Auto Show on April 1. The design and styling of the all-new luxury sports saloon is inspired mainly from the XE, and some elements like the taillamp cluster inspired from the F-Type.
Like the entry-level XE, JLR has built the XF also on the aluminum intensive iQ architecture. The architecture features 75% aluminum and makes the all-new saloon up to 190 kg lighter than the outgoing one with torsional stiffness up by 28%. The car’s length and height have been reduced by 7 mm and 3 mm respectively, but the wheelbase has been extended by 51 mm to 2,960 mm to provide the rear seat passengers with more legroom, kneeroom and headroom.
Engine options will include a 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine with power output choices of 163 PS (161 hp) and 380 Nm of torque and 180 PS (177 hp) and 430 Nm of torque, a twin-turbo V6 3.0-litre petrol engine that delivers 300 PS (296 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, and a 3.0-litre supercharged petrol engine that churns out 380 PS (375 hp) and 450 Nm of torque. The 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine can be had with either with a 6-speed manual- or an 8-speed automatic transmission, while both the petrol engines come paired to the 8-speed automatic transmission.
The second-generation Jaguar XF will be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich plant and will go on-sale in the UK from Autumn 2015.
