Jaguar shows first images of all-new XF
It replaces a car launched in 2007 and will adopt all of Jaguar’s latest technology, such as the lightweight aluminium structure shared with the XE and F-Type, the new InTouch infotainment system with apps and smartphone control, and the new four-cylinder Ingenium four-cylinder diesel engines which have been developed in-house.
The first teaser images, as shown here, indicate it will retain its coupe-like silhouette, but with a more prominent grille similar to the XE. Significantly, fuel economy of over 70mpg will put Jaguar ahead of its key competitors, including current class-leading Audi A6 Ultra. Production will take place at Jaguar Land Rover’s plant in Castle Bromwich.
Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar, said: “I believe the all-new XF will be the best looking car in its class. Elegant, handsome and with proportions that imbue a great sense of integrity – the all-new XF will be true to the strong tradition of sporting Jaguar saloons while being completely of its time.”
Expect further details to follow its unveil in London on the 24th of March, where the car will undertaking a high-wire water crossing with stuntman Jim Dowdell at the wheel before making its motor show debut at the New York Auto Show on the 1st April.
