2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake
Jaguar revealed details of the new XF Sportbrake’s engine lineup as well as the full pricelist, ahead of the car’s market launch towards the end of the year. And it only gets diesel powertrains. The XF benefits from the new supercharged V6 petrol engine, but only for the Saloon version. The 340 PS engine replaces the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 in the XF range, offering compelling performance and outstanding fuel economy at the same time.
That engine is for the high-end, expensive models though. The entry-level version, which starts at 29,940 fro the saloon and 31,940 for the Sportbrake, has the 2.2 liter diesel engine with 163 PS. This unit is not that gutsy, but on the upside it offers more than 55 mpg. Jaguar also offers a 200 PS version of the same engine. Diesel range also includes the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine in 240 PS Diesel and 275 PS Diesel S derivatives. This engine provides satisfactory performance, while remaining fairly eco at 47 mpg.
So the only petrol engine available for the XF is the supercharged V6 – and that is only available for the saloon – the rest are all diesel. The XF saloon and Sportbrake will both adopt the eight-speed automatic gearbox and Stop/Start as standard across the engine range – improving emissions on the V6 Diesel engines by six per cent on the saloon.
Other upgrades for the 2013 XF include the addition of Meridian audio system – replacing the Bowers and Wilkins system, and the XFR Speed Pack to the range topping 510 PS XFR model, which raises the top speed to 174 mph, and also comes with a new front aero splitter and a new rear wing.
