The 2011 Jaguar XF
is a midsize luxury sport sedan with high-performance capabilities and tons of high tech. The XF is offered in several different configurations, including the base model with a 5.0-liter V-8 engine making 385 horsepower, while the Jaguar XFR is a sport performance vehicle with a 5.0-liter V-8 engine and 510-horsepower. Both engines are married to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Jaguar XF is loaded to the brim with exceptional materials and plenty of technology. The Premium XF car features wood veneers, contrast stitching, and deep-pile carpeting. The XFR has an edgy exterior styling and enhancements that highlight its sportiness. The safety systems are superb, but EPA fuel economy ratings are only in the 16 mph city / 23 mpg highway range.
New for 2011
For 2011, the Jaguar XF's 4.2-liter V-8 engine has been replaced with new direct-injected 5.0-liter V-8 engines that offer more power. A new high-performance XFR model has been added to the top of the line, while the Supercharged exited, only to return in late 2010 as a 2011 trim with the new 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine. A new package for the Premium trim added luxury touches, such as contrast stitching, suede headliner, a new wood veneer, and deep-pile carpets.
