A vehicle with an SVR badge is considered as a special vehicle with higher levels of performance. Not all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have received the badge, and one of these unfortunate models is the Jaguar XF midsize luxury car (saloon and estate). But for now, people could stop dreaming about the Jaguar XF SVR. However, it is interesting to see how a Jaguar XF SVR would look like even on paper.
Thankfully, there is someone – an automotive designer named Aksyonov Nikita of St. Petersburg, Russia – who might be able satisfy that interest. After all, Nikita has already rendered an SVR version of a 2017 Jaguar XF saloon. Since it is just a rendering, this model – the 2017 Jaguar XF SVR – could only remain in the imagination of people longing for a high-performance version of the saloon. Nonetheless, the rendering by Nikita shows how the Jaguar XF SVR might look like – with more black details, a rear wing, a front lip spoiler, quad exhausts as well as other details that makes this higher performance version look sportier and faster.
Jaguar and Land Rover models that have received the SVR badge from the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) are vehicles considered to have reached the pinnacle of performance as defined by Jaguar Land Rover and with attributes like power, handling and speed. If the Jaguar XF is to receive that badge, there is a need to justify why it has to bear the SVR name. But the sad thing is that even people at Jaguar are thinking that the XF won’t need the badge. However, it is incorrect to think that the Jaguar XF doesn’t really deserve the SVR badge; it is only that there are other vehicles in the brand’s stable that are on the priority list.Read the entire article Jaguar XF SVR gets rendered
The automotive world is intensely competitive given the growing number of players, but the British car manufacturer is adamantly holding on to its spot. The 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake, priced at $70,450 will soon be joining Volvo V90 and and Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the battle for the best luxury wagon--- both in the US and the rest of North America.
Bearing the price tag of $71,445 inclusive of destination charge, Jaguar’s new luxury estate wagon will be head to head with Volvo’s $49,950-$55,950 V90 as well as Mercedes Benz’s $62,300 E-Class in this tough competition.
While the XF Sportbrake is significantly pricier than the XF sedan (which carries a starting price of $47,775), the S-specced, all-wheel drive wagon has been armed with additional cargo space, a sunroof and a 380hp 3.0 liter supercharged V6 engine. Its trunk capacity is at 20cu.ft which is expandable up to 60 cu.ft. when the seats are folded.Read the entire article 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake will soon be available in the United States
Nowadays, crossovers are all the buzz in US, but not everyone prefers the ride height and dynamic tradeoffs that are offered with that body style. For these consumers, the wagon is a top choice. And those who are in search for the perfect midsize wagon can have more than one option to choose from this winter. Geared to go head to head with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon and Volvo V90, the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake will now enter the wagon game with a base price in the low- $70,000 range.
Jaguar has unveiled the new wagon variant of its second-gen XF named the Sportbrake. Taking the covers off the wagon at the Castle Bromwich factory where the vehicle is set to be produced, Jaguar designers and engineers claimed that they are confident that they have created a class-leading wagon. But Jaguar doesn't need to convince the German consumers of the Sportsbrake's capability as the previous generation variant of the vehicle had outsold the sedan model 60 percent to 40 percent there, but this doesn't automatically mean that the admiration for the wagon will also be the same in other countries. Still, the Jaguar Sportbrake will be sold in the coming months in China and US.
The XF Sportbrake is also offered with a premium air suspension that helps carry huge loads. A cool option also awaits the Sportbrake in the form of a creative panoramic glass roof that will provide the passengers an unobstructed view of the sky. The German marque revealed that it wanted to make the glass roof bigger, but due to the 63-inch (1.6m) length limitation of the oven capacity of the company that supplies the panes, Jaguar was unable to fit a larger glass roof.Read the entire article 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake unveiled, will arrive this winter

Jaguar is placing three new Ingenium engines on the F-Pace crossover, XF saloon and XE sedan for the 2018 model year. According to Jaguar’s recent announcement, the updates will also be including new equipment and advanced technology.
As stated, there will be a 236 hp 2.0-liter twin turbo four-cylinder diesel engine for the 2018 F-Pace, XF and XE. This is the first time for a Jaguar Land Rover engine to be equipped with twin turbochargers along with newly updated fuel injectors, crankshaft and pistons to boot.
In line with this, Jaguar also offers two 2.0-liter petrol powertrains with either 197 hp or 246 hp engine performance. The 197 hp 2.0 liter petrol by all means is more practical for the compact XE range as compared with the much bigger XF saloon model. Except for the F-Pace, both XF and XE will be offered with a 197 hp 2.0-liter new engine.Read the entire article 2018 Jaguar F-Pace, XE and XF to be fitted with three new Ingenium powertrains
Jaguar will start to sell four new or revised vehicles from this year until 2016, according to Joe Eberhardt, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America. Jaguar’s U.S. sales in 2014 were 7% lower than in 2013. However, Jaguar expects a major volume increase in 2016 with the arrival of a redesigned XF midsize sedan and freshened XJ full-size sedan in late winter and the new XE compact coupe and F-Pace compact crossover six months later.
At the New York auto show, Eberhardt said that Jaguar is getting a new showroom. In the U.S. in 2015, Jaguar sold 15,773 cars. He added that Jaguar’s cars will be marketed a "little different" from its German rivals as it will emphasize “seduction, performance and design, with better looks, better value and better drive."
Eberhardt thinks that the model that will affect sales the most is the XE compact coupe, which he describes as a “game-changer” since it allows Jaguar to enter a segment where it didn’t previously have an entry that has “the price and the personality."Read the entire article Jaguar to roll out 4 new models in the US, starts with 2016 XF sedan
Ladies and gentlemen, the all-new 2016 Jaguar XF made its debut ahead of the 2015 New York Auto Show. According to the British manufacturer, the new model is 7 mm shorter and 3 mm lower than its predecessor, while the 2,960 mm wheelbase is 51 mm longer. A longer wheelbase mean more rear seat space, legroom, kneeroom and headroom.

Under the hood, there is a 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine that produces 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque or 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque.
The engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic gearbox. In the 163 hp manual form, the XF will deliver just 104 g/km CO2, making it the most efficient non-hybrid diesel model in the segment (80 kg lighter than its closest competitors). All other engines are offered exclusively with 8-speed automatic transmissions.Read the entire article 2016 Jaguar XF debuts with new design ahead of New York Auto Show
If Audi offers the S-Line, Mercedes-Benz the AMG Sport Package and BMW the M Sport Pack, Jaguar decided that it is time to introduce its own styling pack for the XF. As a result, the British carmaker unveiled the R-Sport line. According to the official press release, the new Jaguar XF R-Sport adds real-world efficiency as well as a raft of exterior enhancements.
As you can see from the photos, the first Jaguars to wear the new R-Sport badges are the XF-R Sport Saloon and Sportbrake. Under the hood of these models, we find a 2.2-liter diesel engine delivering 163 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Bolted to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the XF R-Sport sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 9.8 seconds) and has a top speed of 130 mph or 209 km/h.
The R-Sport is capable of achieving 57.7mpg with a CO2 figure of just 129g/km. The low emissions figures are enhanced by helped further by Jaguar's Stop-Start system, which uses a Twin Solenoid Starter (TSS) to shut down the engine when the car comes to a halt and restarting it in less time than it takes for the driver's foot to move from the brake to the accelerator.Read the entire article 2015 Jaguar XF R-Sport shows new sporty look, fuel-efficient engines
Jaguar is recalling 2,929 vehicles in the United States to check and fix issues that could cause vehicles to stall and for power windows to pinch. Around 940 model year 2013 XF 2-liter GTDi cars is being recalled by Jaguar Land Rover North America for possible stalling issues due to a hose clamp for the charge air cooler that could detach. In addition to possible stalling, steering and brake assistance could be lost, according to documents posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Web site, adding that Jaguar dealers will inspect the hose to ensure that it is in the correct position and tight.
Jaguar is also recalling 1,989 model year 2011-2014 XK convertible cars since their power windows might be unintentionally activated, pinching or injuring an arm or finger.
The switch in the overhead roof console may also activate the power- windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing, NHTSA said. The switch, however, does not move downward to close the windows, failing to meet federal safety standards.Read the entire article Jaguar is recalling 2,929 XF and XK vehicles in the US

Jaguar will be rolling out All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) versions of the XF and XJ saloons in selected markets starting with its 2013 Model Year. Jaguar usually offers All-Wheel-Drive versions where there is high demand for the vehicle, especially in areas where harsh conditions exist. The AWD versions are expected to highlight the capability and versatility of the XF and XJ in conditions where considerable road grip is hard to attain.
Jaguar will be marketing the AWD versions of the XF and XJ in major markets like North America, Russia, China and continental Europe. The AWD versions are powered by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged 340PS petrol engine.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director for Jaguar, said that the carmaker has revitalised its core range and is now carrying out an intensive programme of introducing new models, strategic powertrain and technologies to bolster the Jaguar brand globally.Read the entire article Jaguar to roll out AWD versions of XF, XJ in selected markets
Beginning this fall, Jaguar will offer four- and six-cylinder engines in two of its three car lines. Since Jaguar withdrew the small X-Type from the U.S. about four years ago, it hasn’t had a four-cylinder engine available since 1948 and no V-6. However, it’s likely feeling the pressure to raise its efficiency with the current trend.
Andy Goss, the CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America, said that while the market has shifted to six-cylinder, Jaguar only has V-8s. The XF sedan will be offered with a 2.0-liter, 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder from the Range Rover Evoque. The XF is a four-door that rivals the BMW 5 series, Cadillac STS and Mercedes-Benz E350.
The XF and the larger XJ sedan will soon offer a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 in either 340 hp or 380 hp, says AUtonews. The V-6 is based on the 5.0-liter V-8, which is currently the only engine Jaguar uses for its U.S. cars. Goss said he considers the V-6 to be a game changer. He said that about 70% of XF’s rivals are sold are powered by V-6 engines. He said that with the V-8, they’re “fishing in a small pond."Read the entire article Jaguar XF will offer a four-cylinder engine in the U.S. this fall

Jaguar introduces the XF Sportbrake, which is based on the automaker's world-famous sporting saloon. The latest model extends the practicality and versatility of the saloon while retaining the core values of muscular and dramatic elegance, contemporary luxury and a dynamic driving experience. The XF Sportbrake develops on the extensive refresh that the XF saloon for the 2012 model year has received.
This new XF model is entirely new from the B-pillar backwards. It is accented with a very different aesthetic, highlighted by its polished finish and exemplified by the tautly drawn elegance of the side-window line. The XF Sportbrake features a dynamic, broad-shouldered stance, thanks to the conjunction of flowing back window graphic, estate roofline and rising waist.
The design-led strategy that developed the exterior of the XF Sportbrake has been achieved concurrently with the aim of maximizing practicality. The extended roofline provides passengers in the rear an additional 48mm of headroom. The seats come in both an integral ski hatch and a 60:40 split fold function. The load-space opening has a remote-fold lever which enables the seats to be stowed flat conveniently and fast to provide a cargo volume of at most 1,675 liters.Read the entire article 2012 Geneva: Jaguar reveals XF Sportbrake based on famous sporting saloon
Jaguar is studying plans to expand sales of its new XF Sportbrake outside of Europe. Images of the sports car were released last Wednesday before it will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show. A Jaguar spokesman said that this is a “Europe-only car” for now but they may be offered in other markets in the long-term.
Jaguar has already said that the XF wagon won’t be offered in the U.S., where wagons are not as popular as they are in Europe. The XF Sportbrake will go up against the wagon versions of the BMW 5-series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E class. The Jaguar spokesman said that this new car will provide access to 30% more of the medium premium car market. Jaguar said that initially, the XF Sportbrake will make up about 20% of XF sales.
The spokesman added that this figure could increase. Jaguar will be competing with more established brands as this is actually its first wagon since production of the X-Type was stopped in 2008.Read the entire article 2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake may be sold outside Europe
The new Jaguar XF Sportbrake – the most versatile Jaguar ever built -- was unveiled days before it makes its public debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The Sportbrake is built on the same underpinnings as the XF saloon. Overall, it is longer by only 5mm. Its weight is lower by 70kg and its chassis structure is a match to the strength of the conventional XF.
With these features, the Sportbrake nearly matches the excellent handling of the XF saloon but it provides a big and very useful load space. All the panels on the XF Sportbrake, from the B-Pillar rearwards, are new. The strong silver signature line that runs along the car’s length is extended. Meanwhile, the C-Pillar has a gloss black finish, a characteristic that’s similar to that of the XJ saloon.
The car’s rear is dominated by a bold chrome crossmember that features slim rear light units. As a result, this car merges style and function as it gains from having 48mm of additional rear headroom. Buyers can ask specifically for power struts on the big, practical tailgate that opens to show a wide and extremely versatile load space.Read the entire article 2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is ready to smash the competition
Want to know what the Jaguar XF Sportbrake will look like when it is unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show? Some official pictures of the XFSportbrake have been leaked online, days prior to its scheduled launch.

The XFSportbrake retains the sleek profile of the XF saloon and may feature the same load-lugging capacity as its potential Audi and BMW rivals, and may even be better. Jaguar retained XF Sportbrake’s approximate wheelbase as well as its rear overhang, allowing the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate to carry more luggage – beneath the floor.Read the entire article Jaguar XF Sportbrake pictures leaked online
