The first images and details with the 2016 Jaguar XF have been recently released by the British based automaker.
The 2016 Jaguar XF is one brand new version of the model which is looking basically like an enlarged version of its smaller brother, the XE. The vehicle is now 7 mm shorter and 3 mm lower compared to its predecessor but the wheelbase has been stretched to 2,960 mm, by 51 mm, leading to a so-called class-leading rear seat space. Construction of the new XF is using aluminum and this has helped shave 190 kg (419 lbs) off its weight, while the torsional stiffness has been increased by up to 28 percent.
The new mid-size luxury sedan is getting a double wishbone and Integral Link suspension system with the standard advanced passive damper technology, the Adaptive Dynamics system and an almost perfect 50:50 weight distribution. The cabin of the new XF is bringing the 10.2-inch touch screen display, which has a quad-core processor behind it, along with an 825-watt Meridian digital surround sound system with 17 speakers, a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster which is reconfigurable and much more.
The new generation of the Jaguar XF is using a 2.0 liter, Ingenium diesel under its hood, rated at 163 HP (120 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, along with a more powerful version which is getting 180 HP (132 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. The model is also getting a 3.0 liter V6 twin turbo engine, producing 300 HP (220 kW) and 700 Nm (517 lb-ft) of torque, and a 3.0 liter supercharged V6, with 380 HP (279 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
Jaguar says that all units are connected to the 8-speed automatic transmission while the 2.0 liter Ingenium can also have the 6-speed manual, which is helping it burn just 4 liters of fuel every 100 km (70 mpg UK / 58.2 mpg US) while emitting 104 g/km of CO2. The world premiere of the 2016 Jaguar XF will be made during the 2015 New York Auto Show, on the 1st of April, and more details on it will be announced then. No pricing info has been released by the carmaker at this time.
