The British luxury brand has fuel economy in mind, and for the 2013 model year, it will be upgrading its midsize XF with an engine downgrade in addition to other improvements.
The 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0L four that's found in the Evoque
will also be fitted to the XF, providing a lower-priced and more efficient version of the sedan. A supercharged 3.0L V6, good for 340 horses, will also find its way under the XF's bonnet.
Every XF will also receive a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission, and on certain versions, a start/stop system will help achieve even greater fuel economy.
And, just like the 2013 XJ
, the XF will benefit from available all-wheel drive, which will strengthen the car's appeal in Canada. The system is rear-wheel biased, but will send torque to the front wheels for extra traction as needed.
The 2013 Jaguar XF should soon be available in Jaguar/Land Rover dealerships.
