In an attempt to place its new XF diesel into the spotlights by highlighting its incredibly low fuel consumption, Jaguar has decided to put independent test drivers David and Alexander Madgwick behind the wheel and tell them to drive from the East Coast to Los Angeles, California, in seven days, crossing 11 states on the way and “running” 2.800 miles.
According to the luxurious car manufacturer, even if the model will be tested in real life conditions in the United States, the XF Diesel is right-hand drive and has UK plates on it, and this test will serve as an engineering exercise to determine the maximum efficiency of the vehicle, being also the first XF in the US.
As a reminder, the Jaguar XF Diesel is being powered by a 2.2 liter engine which is generating a total output of 190 horsepower and has a peak torque of 332 lb-ft, which is actually more than the BMW 2.0 liter unit.
Jaguar says that its XF Diesel can accelerate, with the engine mentioned above, from 0 to 60 mph in 8 seconds, with a top speed of 140 mph, but the most interesting thing is that the model can do all of these with an average fuel consumption of just 57 mpg.
As a reminder or an extra info on the subject, the Jaguar XF managed to be driven for 816 miles on a single tank in the past.
