2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged - Click above for an image gallery

When Jaguar dropped the supercharged 4.2-liter V8 XF for the 2010 model year, it left a sizable hole in its line-up between the all-new, 385 hp 5.0-liter V8 model and the 510 hp, M5-hunting XFR. But starting this October, Jaguar will fill the void with the XF Supercharged, packing an new variant of the blown 5.0-liter AJ-V8 Gen III engine putting out 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque – a boost of 12% over the outgoing 4.2-liter model.

In addition to the new forced-induction mill, the XF Supercharged comes standard with Jag's stellar Adaptive Dynamics suspension system and Active Differential Control, along with "Suedecloth" headliner, "Rich Oak" trim (unique to the XF Supercharged), 440W Bowers & Wilkins stereo, HD radio and heated steering wheel. Setting the new XF apart from its siblings are a set of 20-inch, five-spoke wheels, upgraded stoppers painted silver-gray and "Supercharged" badging. Pricing starts at $68,000 (including destination) and deliveries will begin this fall. Make the jump for the official release.

      This sounds like a good deal if you don't need the absolute fastest sedan on the market.
      I wish Cadillac made an LS2 powered CTS with suspension tuning from the V...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I mean the LS3...

      Didn't see that coming. Is it too much choice though?
      • 5 Years Ago
      so far Tata is doing really good things with their new brands, including Land Rover. if they can keep up the progress in over the long run, i think this could be Jaguar's time in the sun for sure.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You do realized all the product were seeing was developed and planned before Tata acquired JLR?
        • 5 Years Ago
        yes, but they've had time to review the changes and put the kaybash on them if they desired. Ford put the stop to a lot of the plans that Jaguar had in the pipeline when they bought the company in the late '80s. Tata seem to have a handle on the marketplace.

        personally, i think 385hp, 470hp, 510hp is absolutely absurd for a 'family' car lineup, but i don't make the rules. i wish they were all electric/hybrid, but apparently the XJ will have a model that fulfills my dreams in that way.

      This car has to be seen in person to fully appreciate the design and as usual, all Jags look a bit odd on release, but they do age pretty well....well maybe not the S-Type.

      I hope Jag have got there act together and can starting making some money, as much as I love the brand, I still fail to see how a pure luxury brand can make it.

      Ten year plan? .. all at once .. one for all ... sure.. Like clock work ?, ..only a gussied up version.. looks good .. not that good ..to spend that kind of money!

      I’m genuinely excited about seeing this car!
      • 5 Years Ago
      I don't like this car. The back is an Aston Matrin, which itself is a beautiful car, but it's totally cheap to just copy it over to the Jag. And the headlight of this car?? Hello, who slipped a pill to the designer?

      I like what I see
