2013 Jaguar XF Overview
The 2013 Jaguar XF sport sedan gets big changes for 2013, including new engines and the new, high-performance XFR.
Jaguar’s entry level car is anything but and competes against like-priced sport sedans from other luxury car makers, such as the BMW 5-series and Audi A6.
The XF’s styling is rather British; it’s staid without being stuffy, with hints of aggression rather than full on heaps of it. The mesh grille up front sits below a sculpted hood and chrome accents can be found up and down the bodywork, especially the side windows. LED daytime running lights and taillights are standard.
Under the hood are two new engine choices. The first is a 240-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, followed by a 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6; both engines team with a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The supercharged V-6 replaces the old 5.0-liter V-8, offers all-wheel drive for extra traction. Still available are an optional 470-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, and a 510-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 which is found in the XFR.
The mechanical components handle the “sport” part of the equation and the XF’s interior handles the luxury side. It combines Jaguar styling, a mish-mash of old-school touches, with the latest in technology like a rotary knob in the center console that rises when the car is started and serves as a gear selector. Leather upholstery, wood trim, and heated front seats are all standard and ensure comfort. Also available are ventilated front seats, navigation, and a power rear sunshade.
Standard safety features include six airbags, active front head restraints, an electronic stability system, and antilock brakes. Just like the cabin, advanced technology is available for safer operation including adaptive cruise control, a blind spot warning system, and forward collision warnings.
