Brand-new for 2009, the Jaguar XF midsize luxury sport sedan introduces a dramatic new look to the lineup. Sporty yet elegant, its five passenger interior is crisp, contemporary and extraordinarily luxurious, as shown in Jaguar XF photos. Equipped with rear-wheel drive, the Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels are powered by a 4.2L V8 engine that cranks out 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic that can be shifted manually with steering-wheel-mounted paddles. The Supercharged trim level is motivated by a supercharged version of the V8 that puts out 420 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Jaguar states the non-supercharged trim levels can do 0-60 in 6.2 seconds, but the Supercharged version can achieve 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings are 16 mpg city/25 mpg hwy for the base V8, while the Supercharged V8 gets 15/23 mpg. Standard safety items on all trim levels include antilock disc brakes, stability control, active front head restraints, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags, while the Supercharged also has a blind spot monitor. In addition to a long list of amenities, the Jaguar FX features a seven-inch color touch screen that controls most cabin functions.Read more Read less
