welcome to Neonista.blogspot.com website that provides a variety of information about the latest cars in the world. and this time we will share information about the 2013 jaguar xf, the following information
Jaguar’s XF sedans started a clean break, design-wise, from the brand’s more ornate, traditional ‘saloon’ past, and while they've been wildly successful over the past several years, it would be fair to say that its all-V-8 lineup has been a limiting factor—especially in a class where a wide range of powertrain options has become the norm.
So for 2013, Jaguar is playing with more of a full deck, introducing both a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine and supercharged V-6 to the lineup, along with new eight-speed automatic transmissions and available all-wheel drive.
The four-cylinder, a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, making 240 horsepower (and yes, essentially Ford’s EcoBoost four), is standard on a more affordable new XF 2.0 model and offers EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 29 mpg on the highway; perhaps more noteworthy is that it also makes 251 pound-feet of torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. The company also says that it’s the lightest engine ever used in a production Jaguar, and it’s by no means slow, as its 0-60 mph time of just 7.5 seconds demonstrates.
The XF's new entry-level engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 240 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. The other addition for the latest model year, a 3.0-liter supercharged six-cylinder, replaces the previously available naturally-aspirated V8 and produces 340 horsepower.
The range-topping engine is supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 470 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of twist, enough propel the cat from zero-to-60 mph in the mid-four-second range.
All three engines come equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is available as an option, but only with the V6 engine.
Fuel economy is rated at 19/29 city/highway mpg for the four-cylinder; the V6 is rated 18/28 mpg and 16/25 mpg in front- and all-wheel-drive forms, respectively; and the V8 returns 15/23 mpg.
The 2013 XF also adds all-wheel drive; initially, it’s introduced only in supercharged V-6 models. For the so-called Instinctive All-Wheel Drive, an active torque management system biases power toward the back but can shift more power to the front wheel to preemptively prevent slip. To aid fuel efficiency of both this engine and the V-8 models, Jaguar has added Auto Start/Stop, which smartly stops the engine at stoplights then restarts it when you lift off the brake.
V-8 engines won’t go away, but they’ll be a smaller portion of the lineup. The 470-horsepower XF Supercharged and 510-hp XFR will continue with their current powertrains and tire-scorching, under-the-radar enthusiast appeal. The high-performance XFR hasn’t been left out completely either. It gets a new Speed Pack option that geared for track-driving enthusiasts, bringing suspension and aerodynamic improvements and raising the top speed to 174 mph.
Infotainment and navigation in the XF have been updated—including new Visual Lane Guidance, Dynamic Zoom, and My POI features to make navigation screens more useful. Jaguar is also turning to Meridian, a British company known for high-end home audio components, for its new premium sound system.
The XF Supercharged also benefits from Jaguar's Computer Adaptive Technology Suspension (C ATSTM). Shared with the XK, it uses electronically controlled, two-stage, adaptive dampers whose characteristics are automatically adjusted within milliseconds in response to road conditions and driving inputs.
Numerous options are available, with highlights including different leather and aluminum/wood trim choices, an audiophile-approved 1 200-watt stereo from specialist company Bowers & Wilkins and a radar-based adaptive cruise control system that automatically accelerates or brakes as necessary to maintain a set distance from the car in front.source:thecarconnection.com,leftlanenews.com
