The XF is Jaguar's entrant in the luxury sport sedan segment, and it's available with all-wheel drive for 2013 and also comes with a choice of new engines. A high-performance XFR version is offered. Competing models include the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
New for 2013
A new 240-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 are offered for 2013, and both engines team with a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Models with the supercharged V-6, which replaces the normally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine, can be fitted with Jaguar's new all-wheel-drive system. XFs with a supercharged engine also get a new fuel-saving stop-start system while the high-performance XFR can have an optional Speed Package that includes suspension and aerodynamic tweaks and a 174-mph top speed.
Besides the powertrain changes, the navigation and entertainment systems receive upgrades, and a Meridian premium stereo is available.
