The all-new Jaguar XF has been revealed during a dramatic ‘high-wire’ water crossing in the heart of London’s business
Expert British stunt man Jim Dowdell drove the all-new Jaguar XF some 240 metres across a high-wire to demonstrate the
new XF’s lightweight aluminium-intensive construction. The new XF is 80kgs lighter than its closest competitor.
The feat took place high over the Royal Dock in London’s Canary Wharf.
The all-new XF brings an unrivalled blend of refinement, fuel economy, dynamics and design to the business car
segment. It will make its global motor show debut in New York, USA, in early April 2015.
With segment-leading figures for interior space, the all-new XF’s dynamic, coupé-like design is formed around Jaguar’s
aluminium-intensive architecture and combines the outstanding proportions, elegant surfaces and pure lines which define
all Jaguar cars, with exceptionally low aerodynamic drag.
The cabin utilises a seamless blend of contemporary luxury materials and finishes, traditional Jaguar craftsmanship
and state-of-the art technology. With features such as the new InControl Touch Pro premium infotainment system and
12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.

"In creating the all-new XF, as a design team we have been driven by discipline, the discipline of simplicity.
Every exterior line on the XF has a clear purpose – nothing is superfluous. Achieving that simplicity takes time and
requires great determination; it’s all too easy to add lines to a car, but much harder to add character by leaving lines
"Inside too, we have been driven by the desire to ensure the XF’s cabin is as comforting as it is comfortable. New
technology, including our new 10.2-inch touchscreen, is combined carefully with materials that cosset and reassure. The
all-new XF has a clear sense of calm and strength, both outside and inside – and I’m proud of my team for delivering
that." said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar.
The original XF’s sleek exterior and luxurious interior made it a desirable, aspirational vehicle. Combined with
benchmark driving dynamics, the XF was like nothing the else in the segment and has gone on to become Jaguar’s
The all-new XF retains its predecessor’s core attributes but uses Jaguar’s advanced aluminium-intensive architecture
to elevate them to a completely new level. Featuring 75 per cent aluminium, the architecture enables weight savings of up
to 190kg over the outgoing model and an increase in torsional stiffness of up to 28 per cent.
The architecture also delivers dramatic improvements in packaging and the proportions so essential to Jaguar design.
Though 7mm shorter and 3mm lower than the car it replaces, the all-new XF’s 2,960mm wheelbase is 51mm longer, enabling
class-leading rear seat space with more legroom, knee room and headroom.
The efficiency gains inherent in the lightweight aluminium construction are complemented by the all-new XF’s refined,
powerful engine range. The 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine produces 132kW/430Nm and an eight-speed automatic
The 2.0-litre turbocharged direct injection petrol engine develops up to 177kW/340Nm, while the renowned 3.0-litre V6
supercharged petrol engine will be offered in both 250kW/450Nm and 280kW/450Nm ratings.
The 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel benefits from a host of advanced technologies which boost efficiency and refinement
still further, and raise output to 221kW and a remarkable 700Nm of torque.
The light, stiff body structure is also fundamental to the all-new XF’s superb vehicle dynamics. The sophisticated
double wishbone and Integral Link suspension – combined with near-50:50 weight distribution – delivers the ideal balance
between agility, comfort and refinement.
Incorporating all of the learning from F-TYPE and XE, the meticulously-tuned Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS)
maintains the XF’s benchmark steering feel and response – and contributes to the all-new XF’s outstanding fuel economy.
Advanced passive damper technology delivers exceptional ride comfort as standard, but for even better control the
Adaptive Dynamics system determines the optimum damper settings for the driving conditions.
Jaguar Configurable Dynamics, first developed for F-TYPE, provides the ultimate in control and enables the driver to
individually tailor settings of the dampers, steering, engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
All-Surface Progress Control, developed for low-speed driving in adverse conditions, automatically manages the brakes
and the throttle to deliver the best possible traction, enabling the car to pull away smoothly and without drama: the
driver only has to steer.
Infotainment is the most advanced Jaguar has ever offered. The all-new InControl Touch Pro system features a 10.2-inch
touchscreen and Dual View technology which simultaneously allows the driver to see information such as navigation, while
the front seat passenger watches TV or a DVD.
To handle the enormous amounts of data, InControl Touch Pro features a solid-state drive and a quad-core processor.
Complementing InControl Touch Pro is a reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster. Jaguar Land Rover pioneered
this technology with the XJ and Range Rover and is now bringing it to the business car segment.
To make every journey safer and even more relaxing, the all-new XF offers a wide range of advanced driver assistance
systems, and is also the first Jaguar to offer full-LED headlights.
The all-new aluminium-intensive Jaguar XF will be manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich Plant (England)
alongside the all-aluminium F-TYPE and XJ.
Full technical details of the all-new Jaguar XF will be available in early April.
