Jaguar reshuffles rest of XF range

Fresh XF: Jaguar aims directly at BMW's 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-class with its expanded and upgraded 12MY large sedan range.

Savings of up to $8000 as Jaguar releases pricing for upgraded 2012 XF range

14 Oct 2011

JAGUAR Australia has announced pricing for an expanded range of facelifted XF sedan models, with reductions of up to $8000.

Led by the bahnstorming XFR and due in local showrooms on October 24, the revised 12MY XF model range now comprises 11 variants, all of which come with the same XJ-style exterior and interior cosmetic upgrades as the 12MY XF 2.2D turbo-diesel, which was launched earlier this week as the most affordable large Jaguar ever.

Although none are equipped with Jaguar’s first idle-stop system, which also helps make the XF 2.2D the most fuel-efficient Jaguar ever, all V6 diesel models now come with the same new ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

The move has reduced combined fuel consumption from 6.8 to 6.3L/100km for both the six-cylinder XF 3.0D Luxury and Premium Luxury models, which offer 500Nm of torque, as well as the XF 3.0D S and Portfolio models, which slam down no less than 600Nm.

Combined with the introduction of the 2.2-litre entry-level diesel model – the first four-cylinder XF – the XF diesel range now comprises six models (up from three), with the 500Nm models designed to “reflect a sporting luxury alternative to the 2.2” and the 600Nm versions positioned as the “overtly sporty” diesel flagships.

As such, the S-badged XF diesels will now be fitted as standard with the same aerodynamic sports bodykit and variable damping system as seen on the top-shelf XFR.

The more highly specified XF 2.2D Premium Luxury costs $86,100 plus on-road costs, while the 500Nm XF 3.0D Luxury now costs $103,500 (up $3600), the new 500Nm XF 3.0D Premium Luxury costs $112,500, the 600Nm XF 3.0D S costs $125,100 (down $1000) and the 600Nm XF 3.0D S Portfolio now tops the range at $142,100 – up $3462.

Now opening the petrol XF range is the 3.0 V6 Luxury at $89,900 (or $89,990 drive-away including sat-nav but not metallic paint), representing a $3915 price reduction and an $11,000 price premium over the new XF 2.2D range opener.

The five-model petrol line-up also includes the new XF 3.0 V6 Premium Luxury variant at $97,100, the XF 5.0 V8 Luxury at $129,600 (up $700), the XF 5.0 V8 Portfolio ($146,600 – down $7962) and the piping hot supercharged XFR, which increases by $2995 to $210,900.

All petrol XFs remain mechanically unchanged and continue to employ a six-speed automatic transmission as standard, meaning the 3.0 V6 models still produce 175kW and 293Nm while returning 10.5L/100km and sprinting to 100km in 8.3 seconds.

Meantime, the 5.0-litre V8s slam out 283kW/515Nm and return 11.1L/100km and 0-100km/h acceleration in 5.7 seconds, while the new-look 12MY supercharged 5.0-litre XFR still belts out 375kW/625Nm while returning 12.5L/100km and 0-100km/h acceleration in 4.9 seconds.

The visual highlight of the 12MY XF upgrade is a pair of hook-shaped LED daytime running lights - dubbed ‘J-Blade’ and first seen on the 2007 C-XF concept – that form a signature styling element within each reshaped headlight.

They are accompanied by a more aggressive front bumper with more upright chromed mesh grille, a new bonnet, triangular side vents, LED tail-lights and a chromed rear valance that does away with ‘JAGUAR’ lettering, leaving only a bootlid Leaper badge to reveal the car’s maker.

There is no change to the XF’s below-par four-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

As we reported when the 12MY model debuted at the New York motor show in April, other new additions include softer-touch XJ-style interior switchgear, new seat designs, a new full-colour TFT instrument panel with additional digital speedo, a new hard-drive infotainment system including colour seven-inch touchscreen and 30GB audio storage, Bluetooth audio streaming and an optional new 1200-Watt 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system.

Base Luxury models come standard with 17-inch wheels, Xenon headlights and leather/Alcantara seats, while Premium Luxury models add full leather trim, satellite-navigation, blue interior mood lighting, different 17-inch alloy wheels and rosewood veneer inserts.

“The repositioning of all models in the 12MY XF range starts from the new 2.2D models,” said Jaguar Australia brand manager Kevin Goult.

“All changes disconnect the 12MY from 11MY in order to maintain strong residual values for previous model years and, of course, a more competitive position for the Jaguar XF line up.”
