Contemporary design in an all-new Jaguar sedan
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 27 -- Jaguar is proud to announce the all-new
2009 XF - a stunning four-door Jaguar that combines the style and performance of
a sports car with the refinement, space and sophistication of a luxury sedan.
Scheduled to make its world debut at the 2007 Frankfurt International Motor Show
in September, the new Jaguar XF is a reflection of the bold new design language
that Jaguar will be using both now and in the future.
"As one of the most visually striking, technically sophisticated and
driver-oriented sedan cars that Jaguar has ever produced, the XF clearly
demonstrates the forward-looking focus that now defines the Jaguar brand," said
Wayne Burgess, XF Senior Design Manager. "With its dramatic styling, powerful
flowing lines and a distinctive front, the new XF looks like no other Jaguar.
Yet it defines the new design language the company will be adopting for all
The first impression of the new XF is its visual strength. It firmly emphasizes
contemporary automotive style whilst maintaining Jaguar's core values. The new
XF is sporty, muscular and dynamic -- made evident in its sweeping silhouette
that was inspired by the new Jaguar XK sports car. There is a powerful grille,
dramatic side window graphics and, of course, strong Jaguar rear haunches. The
stance of the XF gives the car a 'ready to pounce' look that suggests latent
power and energy.
The contemporary design theme is continued inside the XF with an interior
ambience that is enriched by wood, aluminum and leather presented in a very
modern way, unlike any other car manufacturer. With its sophisticated
instruments and calm interior mood lighting, the XF moves away from traditional
styling to a contemporary, sporting luxury theme. This is emphasized by features
such as the all-new JaguarDrive Selector(TM), JaguarSense(TM) (an electronic
control system that employs motion detecting sensors to activate certain vehicle
features), unique phosphor blue interior lighting, and Bowers & Wilkins sound
The new XF will be available in the US with a choice of two engines - a
4.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 and a 4.2-liter supercharged V8. In
naturally-aspirated form, the XF develops 300bhp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The
supercharged version uses a highly efficient rotor-type supercharger that
develops 420bhp and 408 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines combine effortless
performance, unrivalled character, an impeccable pedigree, and have a classic
Jaguar blend of power and refinement.
