2011 Jaguar XF Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

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...

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 sunroof
  • 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


Under the Hood
Mechanical features include:

  • Standard 385-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine
  • Optional  470-hp, supercharged  5.0-liter V-8 engine (Supercharged models)
  • Optional  510-hp, supercharged, 5.0-liter V-8 (XFR)
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel
  • Faster steering ratio and larger brakes on XFR models

Safety
Safety features include:

  • Standard dual-stage front airbags, front-seat side-impact airbags and curtain airbags for front and rear side-impact protection
  • Standard active head restraints
  • Standard electronic stability system
  • Optional adaptive cruise control

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
