TFLcar.com - Review Jaguar XF technology
( http://www.tflcar.com ) It used to be that Jaguar built cars for rich fat men who smoked big cigars and drank straight liquor out of short glasses with lots of ice, but who fancied themselves as the long lost svelte cousins of James Bond.
With the new XF all of that changed when the company engineers designed a car for the next century and not for the year 1950.
They took a little bit of Aston Martin and sprinkled in just a tiny bit of Jaguar to come up with a car packed full of elegance, style, and substance.
But had they gone a bit too far in the technology department?

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.
Jaguar XF Test Drive
Taking a quick drive in a 2009 Jaguar XF. This car is a huge step forward for Jaguar as it's everything Jaguar sedans of yesterday were not; quick on its feet, agile, fun to drive, vocal, responsive and lithe yet it still retains the typical British charm and elegance that we've come to love the marque for. My only complaint is the lack of the beautiful burl walnut veneer that was so characteristical of Jaguars in the past.

Even after being around for a couple of years, the XF hasn't lost any of its street appeal. Back when we had our long-termer, I would constantly get stopped and asked about the sexy cat at grocery store parking, gas stations and everywhere else. And why wouldn't people ask about it? I mean, look at it! The car is gorgeous.
Sure enough, when I got gas last night I was once again asked about the slick looking feline. This time it was a slightly tipsy gentleman who stumbled out of the pub next door to purchase some cigarettes from the gas station. Maybe it was the beer goggles that made the car look 300 pounds lighter, but he stood in front of the car stunned and continually told me how beautiful it was. He asked about the price, how it drove and how much horsepower it had.
Speaking of horsepower, this test car is packing a more potent punch compared to our long-termer. For the 2010 model year, Jag slid in a new engine under the hood of the XF. Replacing the previous 4.2-liter supercharged V8 is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 for an increase of 50 hp to 470 and small bump in torque of 11-lb-ft to 424. The lightning quick ZF automatic gearbox remains, which is a good thing.
The extra power is noticeable from the first throttle mash and pushes the car well past posted speed limits in short order. The car remains light on its feet with quick response to steering inputs and the suspension keeping the car well planted in all situations. Brakes return instant grab.
I'm still mildly entertained by the handshake at start-up with the opening vents and raising shift knob from the center console. What I still don't like much is the center touch screen that controls functions navigation, sound, heated/cooled seats and steering and etc. Going between menu screens still includes a screen wipe that saps precious seconds from your life that you will never get back, and it requires you to sometimes have pinpoint accuracy when using it. It's not something that would make me not recommend the car, but it's an annoyance.
Jaguar xf 2011
Playing with the interior of my new Jaguar XF. I show you the interior of the car and how it turns on and off. The dashboard of the 2011 XF features hidden air vents that turn close when you turn the car off so that the whole thing looks sleek when you don't have the air on.
2012 Jaguar XF
The 2012 Jaguar XF is a exceptional vehicle that has many great features. Even the base XF has a V-8 that sounds great and drives even better.
