the previous generation of both cars in the United States you can now have

Can Jag Beat BMW? Jaguar XF vs BMW 550i @ the Track
MORE TRACK INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Last May, the newly introduced Jaguar XF surprised us. It went head to
head with the best midsize luxury sedans from Germany and came out on top.
It was fast, comfortable and surprisingly competent through turns, but of
course, that was the top-of-the-line supercharged model.
For 2010, the Jaguar XF gets a pair of all-new 5.0-liter V8s: one normally
aspirated in the XF Premium, the other supercharged in the new XFR. We'll
test an XFR soon, but today Inside Line is the first to take the new
non-supercharged 5.0-liter-powered 2010 Jaguar XF Premium to the test
track. Rated at 385 horsepower and 380
pound-feet of torque it's not quite as powerful as the former 4.2-liter
supercharged V8, but it's close.
To see just how close, we brought back a 2009 BMW 550i to see how the new
Jag stacks up when it's not getting help from a Supercharger. Given that the BMW is giving up 25
hp and 20 lb-ft of torque, we expected a close contest - and got one.
