Jaguar engineers have developed a more streamlined design for the second-generation Jaguar XF to maximize efficiency and performance.
Jaguar is giving the 2016 XF more than just a facelift this year thanks to an innovative new design and optimized performance capabilities. Dedicated to truly improving each vehicle with every new model, Jaguar has substantially upgraded the performance, refinement, and technology of this already stunning vehicle.
Harnessing the Strength of Simplicity
Early performance reviews and expectations for the 2016 Jaguar XF are very positive due to the evolutionary design changes that have been implemented. The key to the main improvements of the Jaguar XF is the updated aluminum-intensive construction. This is part of a brand-wide effort to feature lightweight aluminum construction in all new Jaguar models. An aluminum frame provides durability and strength but shaves off considerable weight to maximize power and fuel efficiency. The 2016 Jaguar XF experienced a design overhaul as engineers worked from square one again to truly maximize each aspect of the luxury sedan. The new model’s streamlined design is spacious yet more progressive and efficient. According to the XF engineering team, simplicity was the focus of the design. Nothing was added just for show and every aspect has a clear purpose and plays a necessary part in the driving experience. The result is a car that projects a confident sense of strength and refinement.
Some of the notable updates for the 2016 XF include:
- A 2inch wheelbase extension
- A shorter front overhang that emphasizes the rear-wheel drive stance
- A vertical mesh grille to reduce drag
- Aerodynamic front bumper vents
- One-piece aluminum body side pressings
- Improved visibility with rear quarter windows
With so many innovative design advancements, it is no wonder the Jaguar XF is expected to have strongly improved performance stats. The 2016 Jaguar XF will be powered by a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 engine featuring 340hp and 332lb-ft of torque. A second engine option includes a 380hp version of the V6 with an eight speed automatic transmission capable of racing from 0-60mph in a brief 5.1 seconds. Powerful, efficient, and sleeker than ever before, the 2016 Jaguar XF is a definite upgrade from the previous model.
