AutoWeek Associate Publisher, Dutch Mandel takes us on a tour of the Jaguar
XF. The XF is Jaguar's new luxury sport sedan.
2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged
Base Price: $68,000
As-Tested Price: $68,000
Drivetrain: 5.0-liter supercharged V8; RWD, six-speed automatic
Output: 470 hp @ 6,000 rpm, 424 lb-ft @ 2,500 rpm
Curb Weight: 4,306 lb
Fuel Economy: (EPA/AW) 17/19.8 mpg
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.

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.

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.
