A luxury sport sedan produced by Jaguar beginning with the 2008 model year.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Jaguar XF page on 19 October 2017, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Jaguar XF is an executive/mid-size luxury car and estate produced by British car manufacturer Jaguar. It was first unveiled in autumn 2007 as a replacement for the Jaguar S-Type.

First generation (X250, 2007-2015)

The XF was developed at Jaguar's Whitley design and development HQ in Coventry and is built at Castle Bromwich Assembly facility in Birmingham. During its development the XF was known by its codename X250.

The XF was launched at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, following the public showing of the C-XF concept in January 2007 at the North American International Auto Show. Designed by Jaguar's design director Ian Callum, it was a significant design change from its predecessor. The styling of the finalised production XF varies from that of the C-XF, most notably around the front lights and nose, which incorporates an oval mesh grille harking back to the original Jaguar XJ of 1968. The boot lid retained the S-Type's chromed blade to its edge, but also included a "leaper" Jaguar logo as well.

The interior included some unique features such as the air conditioning vents which are flush-fitting in the dash, rotating open once the engine is started, and a rotating gearshift dial called the JaguarDrive Selector which rises out of the centre console. Another departure from the traditional Jaguar cabin ambiance is the use of pale-blue backlighting to the instruments, switchgear, and around major control panels. Some minor systems, such as the interior lighting, are controlled simply by touching the light covers. The glove compartment also opens to the touch. Unusually the XF has no cloth interior option, with even the entry level model being fully trimmed in leather - even areas that have employed plastic on previous Jaguars. Real wood veneers are available, but have been joined by aluminium, carbon fibre and piano black lacquer trims to create a modern look to the passenger compartment.

Customer deliveries commenced in March 2008, with a range of V6 and V8 engines.

Second generation (X260, 2015–)

The second generation XF (codename X260) was launched in September 2015, with a phased roll-out to other markets to follow. It is the first Jaguar with LED headlamps. Because of extensive use of aluminium, the car will be 190 kg (419 lb) lighter than its predecessor, although it strongly resembles its predecessor - as well as the smaller XE range which was launched the following year. Engines range from 163 PS (120 kW; 161 hp) diesel to 380 PS (279 kW; 375 hp) petrol, with up to 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of torque. The XF is available with the same eight-speed automatic transmission, and also carries a six-speed manual for the first time.

The car is 7 mm (0.3 in) shorter than the predecessor, but the wheelbase is 51 mm (2.0 in) longer, enabling the manufacturer to claim an increase in the space available for passengers in the back.
