Jaguar XF Whoa, check this out: a stylish ride that gets 35 miles to the gallon and also puts down 443 Pound Feet of torque to the pavement.

Meet Jaguars new and improved XF diesel. Motivated by a new dual turbo 3.0-liter that puts out 240 hp for the base model or 275 hp S trim. True, not that much for a heavy and luxurious car such as a Jag, but the torque, and a train moving 443 lb-ft should do the trick. And indeed it does, motivating the cat down the road to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds, topping out at 155. Of course on the inside, it’s got all the Jaguar bits and bobs you’d come to expect. A few cows worth of leather, lots of wood, comfort comfort comfort, that sort of deal.

What’s not to like?

You can’t buy it.

It’s European only.

Aren’t American car companies having trouble with CAFE standards? Doesn’t Ford still own Jag? Do I have to draw you a picture Dearborn?

    re-previous , A yankee doodle one that doesn’t keep up. The car they’re talking about I have. Yes it’s a fine car, but I average 30 mpg, which isn’t bad for the hilly Yorkshire Dales. Some switch gear is a bit cheap, the heated screen wires anoy me, and the information screen (touch) is a bit fussy, I switch it off, then it goes to a nice analogue clock, oh and Saab seats have the edge for back sufferers.

    No…Ford does not own Jaguar anymore. What kind of car website is this? Ford sold Jaguar in March of 2008 to Tata Motors.
