2013 Jaguar XF 3.0 Supercharged

Generally speaking, I don't get too upset about the growing need to replace displacement in modern cars. Sure, there are exceptions (don't you touch my 6.2-liter AMG V8), but honestly, the industry's new forced induction powertrains are all lovely, and their gains in fuel economy – when they actually make good on them – can make up for the ever-so-slight losses in performance or driving character.

    A photo purported to be a sneak peak at the facelifted 2012 Jaguar XF has hit the Web ahead of its New York Auto Show debut, and while there's precious little information about where the photo came from, if it's legit, this is exactly in line with what we're expecting the next XF to look like. The sharper headlights on the car pictured above look ...

    Jaguar brings a pair of Designer Editions to go with the announcement at AutoRAI
    1302444300

    There are major auto shows, and there are relatively minor ones. Holland's AutoRAI may fall more into the latter category, but that doesn't mean it can't have its fare share of new debuts. And a big part of those are reportedly coming from Jaguar. Say what you will about the wisdom of decisions taken in Europe's notoriously mind-altering playground, but ...

    Jaguar says it will have an all-wheel-drive version of its flagship XJ sedan ready in less than two years, which should coincide with the launch of the car's mid-cycle refresh. Jag hopes the move will increase its sales in the northern United States, where it has traditionally held the strongest foothold in the U.S. market. According to Jaguar, the ...

    Jaguar has issued a recall of 6,085 2010 XF and XK models built between June, 2009 and March, 2010 to repair power steering hoses that could corrode and start to leak. Jag says the hoses it used on the affected cars have a zinc-nickel plating that doesn't meet their corrosion resistance requirements. If the pipes corrode to the point of leaking, ...

    Car and Driver has found a couple of revisions to the Jaguar XF for 2011 that haven't really been crowed about. Anyone who's ever been tempted to punch the dashboard after poking at the unresponsive touch-sensitive glovebox "target" will feel gratified to see the new pushbutton Jaguar has put into the 2011 Jaguar XF.

    Here We Go Again: New report says Jaguar wants a crossover

    Does a Jaguar crossover make sense? If you're Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's Global Brand Director, it certainly does. Speaking to Autocar, Hallmark said that Jaguar "needs a crossover and needs to stop being a saloon-based company." We're a bit confused as to exactly why Jaguar needs a CUV when the typical Jaguar shopper could easily afford something from the ...

    Jaguar launches Black Pack appearance kit for XF range

    Jaguar's current styling language alienated some who were enamored with the previous classical design, while others (ourselves included) greeted the more avant-garde approach as a much-needed breath of fresh air. To enhance Jag's new design, the automaker has just released this Black Pack appearance kit for the XF sedan, and might we say, ...

    It feels like Jaguar's renaissance has only just begun, and here's the sedan that started it all, already prepping for its own renaissance. The Jaguar XF, in line to be fitted with some tailoring taken from the XJ's handsome suit of sheetmetal, was caught again stretching its legs in the desert.

    The new Jaguar XJ is arguably the best-looking luxury flagship currently available in the United States. That's quite a claim to stake, but stare at an XJ for five minutes and then study a BMW 7 Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class – not as pretty, right? Jaguar isn't oblivious to the fact that it's created quite a stunner here, and thus, it only makes ...

    The turnaround at Jaguar/Land Rover is happening even faster than the company's owner, Tata, had planned. A year ago, JLR posted a net loss of £64 million ($101M U.S.) in Q2; compare that to this year's second quarter and its £233.8 million ($369M U.S.) net profit on 57,135 vehicles sold.

    Jaguar's new 5.0-liter V8 has seen its fair share of praise since its introduction, but even the best petrol mill is worthless without fuel.

    When our man Lieberman drove the 2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged earlier this year, he came to the conclusion that of all the models in the XF range, the mid-grade Supercharged with its 470-horsepower V8 was the one to have, if you're buying. After all, at a relatively modest $68,000, it's a sexy sleeper with enough high-powered thrills to keep you happy ...

    Sometimes we can't help but lament the relative lack of touring car racing in North America. Sure, there are a handful of series, but they don't enjoy nearly the popularity that they do overseas, including in England (BTCC), Europe (WTCC) and Australia (V8 Supercars). Even the Belgian Touring Car Series is looking increasingly appetizing with some of the ...
