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. But I'm having a hard time keeping my chin up with this Jaguar XF. For the 2013 model year, Jaguar has killed off the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 and fitted a supercharged... Read More

    Spy Shots: 2016 Jaguar XF mule spied in Germany
    1383161580

    From our best guess, the Jaguar test mule shown in these spy shots could very well be our first glimpse at the next-generation Jaguar XF, due out around the 2016 model year. The current XF has been around for five years already (launched in 2008), and this mule is likely testing powertrain or chassis components for a new version of the midsize Jaguar ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar's XFR-S Sportbrake looks to be one hot kinschlepper
    1374587880

    This is the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, which is too cool for North American sale (the Sportbrake, not the XFR-S sedan, which we're getting soon). Like the XFR-S four-door, it has a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 pumping out around 550 horsepower. Our spy photographer's x-ray vision is saying that a ZF eight-speed automatic will be the gearbox of choice for the ...

    Spy Shots: This mule is the first evidence Jaguar is working on a 3 Series fighter
    1362170640

    Rumors of an entry-level, BMW 3 Series-fighting Jaguar sedan have been floating around for quite some time, but thanks to our intrepid spy photographers, we now have visible proof that such a model is, in fact, in the works. Despite this tester's XF fittings, it's clear that what lies beneath is an entirely different beast. The doors have been shortened, ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar XF "Sportbrake" wagon caught in the wild
    1322348520

    It was confirmed over the summer that Jaguar was working on an XF wagon, and now the spy photogs at KGP have caught it testing. We've been told it's called the XF Sportbrake, and it's hard to pin down the exact lines in back with those bulging light units, but it should make itself right at home in the handsome XF line. This car will begin the expansion ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar XFR-S snapped gunning for M5 territory at the 'Ring
    1313688600

    When is a Jaguar XFR not a Jaguar XFR? When it's an XFR-S, that's when. So while this vehicle may look like your standard supercharged Jaguar sedan, it's actually a British rocket aimed – in a bit of role reversal – squarely at Germany. Spied undergoing development work at Jaguar's test center near the Nürburgring, this test mule looks ...

    Is this the facelifted 2012 Jaguar XF?
    1302465000

    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 debuts new 2.2-liter diesel engine under hood of 2012 XF prototype
    1301516460

    Jaguar has announced a new 2.2-liter diesel engine capable of 187 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque that can also travel 52.3 miles per gallon in the combined European cycle as fitted to a prototype of its 2012 XF sedan. The engine will also have little trouble meeting Europe's stringent CO2 regulations, as The Leaping Cat claims the engine only ...

    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 exterior changes won't be radical, but expect a ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar XF will look more like XJ for 2012
    1284136320

    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 ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar XF-R bares more teeth
    1230996000

    The Jaguar XF-R has doffed a little more of its mask, and now we can clearly see the copious amounts of black mesh that will fill in the front air dam's side vents, replacing the aluminum strips there now. Otherwise, and as usual, you'll need to know your Jags in order to tell this R apart from its lesser siblings. In addition to the mesh the mesh, the hood ...

    The Jaguar XF-R is almost complete, and the house of the saltant feline looks to retain its suite of exceptionally modest modifications for the hottest version of its hottest seller. Outside, the car gets hood vents and larger intakes for better breathing, and a sliver of a trunk spoiler hovering over quad tailpipes out back. Larger wheels wearing lower ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar XF-R mules testing in Death Valley

    The two sedans may look like Jaguar S-Types, but according to Fast Lane Daily's spy shot A-Team, they aren't. They are actually XF-R mules disguised as S-Types with large wheels and big, bulging fender flares. They were caught during hot weather testing recently in Death Valley, U.S.A., and FSD reports that their engines did not sound supercharged, a la the ...

    1211921940

    Proving that Jaguar is truly serious about dumping its staid, old man-ish image is a lone spy shot of the upcoming redesigned XJ sedan's new interior. True, Jag's bread-and-butter sedan has not seen much in the way of changes since... well, never, but we weren't sure just how far Jaguar management was willing to go for its interior redesign. As it turns ...

    As our First Drive suggests, the new Jaguar XF is the most fun you can have behind the wheel of a modern-day Jag, but that doesn't mean that Coventry is resting on its laurels. An XF-R prototype has been spotted undergoing testing and judging by the exterior mods alone, Jaguar has Germany's super sedans set in its sights.The cloaked from fascia appears to ...

    In nature, only the lion and tiger are bigger cats than the jaguar, and the spotted feline is quite the predator, as prey learns when the cat's fangs penetrate their skulls. The wild jaguar is also diminishing in number. When you think about it, you can draw a parallel between the beast and the brand named after it. After all, there are bigger luxury ...

    Rendered speculation: Jaguar XF convertible

    The new Jaguar XF is undoubtedly a handsome car, albeit slightly marred by the awkward look of its headlights. It's also a crucial model for Jaguar as the carmaker's future is basically pegged on the success or failure of the new volume-seller. Because of this, developing several more variants of the car would be a smart a move as it should enable Jaguar to ...

    The 2009 Jaguar XF has been caught completely uncovered and without camouflage for the first time. While only visible from behind and a rear 3/4 view, we feel confident in saying the production XF will be remarkably close to the C-XF Concept on which it's based. There are differences, of course. The fender vent behind the front wheels is taller and thinner, ...

    An Autoblog reader who calls himself "ScubaSteve" was in Colorado yesterday when he saw a vehicle wrapped in the telltale black camouflage of an automaker test mule. To use his words, the car was "BOOKING up Loveland Pass." The car in question, as you can see in the pretty shot above, is the Jaguar XF, which was likely undergoing high-altitude testing. ...

    It appears that the XKR caught with Jaguar's new JaguarDrive gear selector was also accompanied by a group of test mules for the upcoming XF sedan. The convoy was encountered in Austria where Jaguar has rented a house and garage behind a gas station to work on the cars in private, or so they thought. While we've seen XF mules before, it's always fun to ...
