2017 Jaguar XF Performance
When the Jaguar XF was last redesigned for the 2016 model year, it received some major upgrades to the engine, transmission, and overall drive. Since the latest model is largely unchanged, the 2017 Jaguar XF performance continues to deliver exemplary levels of speed, power, precision, and refinement. If the quality of the driving experience really matters to you, you will want to be behind the wheel of this car in particular. Explore the details before scheduling a test drive at Jaguar Fort Myers.
You have two distinctly different engine options to choose from. A turbodiesel 2.0L four-cylinder will put out 180 hp and an impressive 318 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to go 0-60 mph in 8.0 seconds and achieve a top speed of 121 mph. If those numbers are not enough for you, a supercharged 3.0L V6 is also available that elevates power ratings to 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. With that amount of power at your disposal. you can shoot from 0 to 60 mph just 5.1 seconds. A limiter holds your top speed to 121 mph.
The 2017 Jaguar XF performance feels smooth and refined thanks to the eight-speed automatic transmission that comes paired with both engines. You also have the option to drive either engine on any trim in a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive configuration. That gives the latest Jaguar XF the kind of confident performance in bad weather or rougher terrain that is hard to find in a sedan.
In spite of its impressive power ratings, the Jaguar XF is surprisingly frugal with gas. The four-cylinder model gets an outstanding 31 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, which are both figures close to the top of the segment. The V6 engine is still able to get up to 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. And thanks to the 19.5 gallon gas tank, you can do a lot of driving between fill-ups.
This feature was originally designed for the Jaguar F-TYPE models, but is now available on the Jaguar XF. The driver uses the touchscreen display to customize the performance of variables like engine tuning, steering weight, gearshift, suspension characteristics, and throttle response so that the specifics of the driving experience perfectly match the driver’s preferences. A pre-set “Dynamic” mode instantly re-tunes performance to upgrade the vehicle’s sport performance credentials.
