2021 Jaguar XF Sedan: Refined Luxury with Advanced Technology
Jaguar has revealed the 2021 XF: a thoroughly refined executive sedan that blends design cues from Jaguar's heritage models with a contemporary, connected interior space.
Exterior design of the new XF draws inspiration from the F-TYPE sports car, featuring ultra-slim, all-LED quad headlights with “Double J Blade” daytime running lights. The grille is finished with a mesh design that contains diamond detailing influenced by the Jaguar heritage logo and features a Noble Chrome finish for a heightened sense of luxury. This is complemented by the lower air intakes that have been enlarged and reshaped to create visual width and enhance the XF vehicle’s dynamic stance. The optional Black Exterior Pack delivers a stealthier appearance with bespoke elements finished in Gloss Black. These include the grille mesh, grille surround, lower air intake surrounds, side vents, window surround, tailgate finisher, rear valance finisher, and badging.
“The significant new elements of the XF create a more dynamic stance for the car, but the small details are just as important,” said Adam Hatton, Jaguar Exterior Design Director. “Bringing the heritage-inspired detailing to the grille and headlights adds that touch of depth and luxury with a link to Jaguar’s unparalleled past, while the Leaper emblem on the side vents is instantly recognizable and provides an added visual flourish.”
The all-new Pivi Pro infotainment system is prominently featured, accessed via a centrally mounted, 11.4 -inch HD touchscreen. The curvature of the screen was designed to seamlessly follow the same profile as the instrument panel, and is housed in a magnesium frame painted in tonal black satin, to accentuate the slim profile and deliver a high-quality and durable finish. The 2021 XF features a spacious, dramatically styled cockpit, utilizing soft forms and premium materials. Contrasting use of color at eye-level and in lower cabin finishes immerse the interior in one tone to enhance the sense of space. The new XF introduces Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, which supports a range of new technologies to help ensure connectivity over time. This includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which helps ensure that the XF is updated with the latest software without the need for a retailer visit. Active Road Noise Cancellation technology monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants. The standard 3D Surround Camera delivers advanced functionality using the latest camera technology in Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View, with real-time viewing when maneuvering. Keyless entry, wireless phone charging with signal boost, and a 12-speaker Meridian™ sound system with Sirius XM radio functionality are included on all XF models.
The 2021 XF will be offered in three configurations with both rear- and all-wheel drive: XF P250 S RWD, P250 SE RWD, and P300 R-DYNAMIC SE AWD. U.S. models will be available with two turbocharged engine options, each routing power through an 8-speed automatic transmission:
- 246hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (XF P250 S, SE RWD)
- 296hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (XF P300 R-DYNAMIC SE AWD)
