Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

The XF comes in Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels, as well as the XF Portfolio, an ultraluxury version. There's also a high-performance XFR version. Competing models in size and/or price include the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Cadillac STS, Lexus GS and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The XFR squares off against the souped-up versions of those cars, such as the S6, M5 and STS-V.
New for 2011 There are no significant changes.
Exterior Distinctive characteristics include a sculpted hood and prominent aluminum trim surrounding the side windows. The XF has front fender vents similar to the XK's. Around back are high-mounted LED taillights that emulate an Aston Martin.
Exterior features include:
Standard steel/alloy body material
Standard trunklid spoiler and side sill extensions (XFR)
Standard four tailpipes, special 20-inch wheels and a more aggressive front end with large chrome-rimmed lower-bumper vents (XFR)
Standard cooling vents in the hood (XFR)
Interior The interior combines traditional cues with contemporary touches, like a rotary knob in the center console that serves as a gear selector. With its continued dedication to ease of use, Jaguar does not use this knob as a multifunction controller like the German and some Japanese automakers do. Like the XK, the XF's in-dash LCD is a touch-screen.
When the engine is started, the JaguarDrive Selector knob rises out of the console, and closed air-conditioning vents rotate to the open position. The XF also uses proximity sensors in place of switches or handles for the reading lights and glove compartment lid — a wave of the hand does the trick.
The Portfolio trim level features contrast leather-trim stitching, a suedelike cloth headliner, unique trim pieces and deep-pile floormats with contrasting trim and embroidered logos.
Interior features include:
Standard heated seats
Standard aluminum and real wood trim
Optional upgraded audio system
Ivory or charcoal soft-grain leather standard in XFR
XFR models get dark oak and darker, mesh pattern aluminum trim
