2016 Jaguar XF MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2016

Weighing up to 265 pounds less than the outgoing model, the redesigned 2016 Jaguar XF features an aluminum-intensive body and architecture. Additional features include full LED headlights, laser head-up display, and standard All-Surface Progress Control, which aids in maneuvering the car in snowy or icy road conditions.

Vehicle Summary

The 2016 Jaguar XF is a midsize luxury sports sedan that slots above the upcoming XE and the full-size XJ. Rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations will be available in the 2016 XF.

Overview

All 2016 XFs will come equipped with a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with 340 hp or 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque at launch and will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel independent suspension featuring double-wishbone up front and Integral Link setup in the rear. Like the F-Type performance car and XE compact luxury sports sedan, the 2016 XF utilizes an aluminum-heavy structure to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency and handling. A turbodiesel four will become available late in 2016.

Buyers can opt for a choice of wood or carbon fiber veneers in R-Sport and S models. Two-tone interior upholsteries in Jet/Light Oyster, Jet/Red, and Brogue are exclusive to the R-Sport and S trims while the Premium and Prestige grades get a choice of Jet, Latte or Light Oyster upholsteries.

Despite the coupe-like roofline, the redesigned 2016 XF offers more head- and legroom than the car it replaces. A 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat comes standard in all models to expand the XF's cargo carrying capabilities.

Safety

There's an extensive list of available safety features in the 2016 XF, but they are bundled into packages or standard in higher trim levels. In the 35t Premium and Prestige trims, blind spot warning, closing vehicle sensing, rear cross-traffic alert and reverse traffic detection are part of the Vision Pack and standard on the R-Sport and S grades along with lane keeping assist. The Driver Assistance pack in the R-Sport and S models adds park assist, proximity camera, adaptive cruise control with queue assist, 360-degree view camera system and a 360-degree park distance control.

Trims, Packages and What's Standard

Standard equipment included in the 2016 XF 35t Premium include an eight-inch touchscreen, five-inch TFT display, rearview camera, and an 11-speaker Meridian surround sound system with 380 watts. Moving up to the Prestige trim adds Taurus leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry, navigation, 19-inch wheels and InControl Apps that integrate smartphone apps into the car's infotainment system. R-Sport models add LED headlights, and a host of safety aids.

In the Prestige, R-Sport, and S models, the 2016 XF is available with the Technology Pack, which comes with an 825-watt, 17-speaker Meridian surround sound system, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, an upgraded navigation system, and a 12.3-inch TFT display. The Comfort and Convenience Pack adds heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, power trunk lid, and soft close doors. A head-up display is available as a standalone option in all XF models except the base Premium trim.

The optional Adaptive Dynamics system improves the car's ride and handling via adaptive dampers while the JaguarDrive Control adds three driving modes, Normal, Winter, and Dynamic. All-wheel-drive-equipped models come with brake-actuated torque vectoring for better all-weather traction, and Adaptive Surface Response mode when equipped with JaguarDrive control, which lets the car detect the surface it's on.

Cool Fact

The supercharged V-6 is shared with the rest of the Jaguar lineup and is based on the 550-hp V-8 found under the hood of the F-Type R and XJR.

You'll Like:

  • Not as many XFs on the road as there are its German competitors
  • Sexy exterior design

You Won't Like:

  • No V-8 engine (yet)
  • 0-liter V-6 could sound smoother when worked hard
